Maybe not as far as imitating them, but, what guitarists do you know of that copy another guitarists style?

Matt Bellamy - Tom Morello

Matthew Followill - The Edge

Matt uses whammy pedals a good bit in his solos like Morello. Does the exact thing he does where he makes that noise from the strings on the headstock. Matt plays his riffs all the time at live concerts. Matts riffs are exactly like Morellos riffs. There's even a video of Matt doing the scratchy thing Morello does on Bulls on Parade...

So yeh....

Jimi Hendrix imitates Alexi Laiho


Yeah. That Hendricks ****** is such a ****ing poser. If Lay-ho hadn't died he wouldn't have been the best Jamaican musician of all time. Totally.

Jimmy Page - Many blues guitarists. I still love him, though.

I imitate every stupid pose I see, and I'll still be doing that when I get famous.
Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch

Joe Stump tries so hard to be Yngwie Malmsteen it's sad.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

Even beyond the music; the clothes, the hair, the strat. It's pitiful.

John Mayer - SRV.

John's still the man though.


You could probably say something similar about SRV and Hendrix. And John Frusciante and Hendrix to an extent. And the vast majority of guitarists and B.B King.

He did imitate Buddy Guy though.

Stevie was more of an Albert King and Freddie king Clone, though.

Everyone - Eric Clapton


Except for the fact that Eric imitated a lot of blues guitarists, and isn't that influential

Frusciante -->Hendrix

the first thing that came to my mind


Oh and Tom morello's playing is pretty much based on the song Alice In My Fantasies by Funkadelic if you ask me

Damn you! I was going to say that!

But yeah, Joe Stump is a Malmsteen clone. He even uses a vintage white ESP Strat (so there's one unique thing, I guess) with scalloped frets and the same pickups Yngwie uses.

Actually, he's a lot more influential than people think.

It's hard to overestimate the effect the Beano album had on the guitar community at the time. That was a year before Hendrix got big, when the Shadows and the Beatles were popular. There's a big leap from T-Bone Walker etc to Clapton's playing, and you could say that he practically invented the modern style of playing.

One of the most ill informed comments I have ever, ever read. Ever. Lolz.

I don't even say that as a fan, I just mean in general.

John Frusciante and Hendrix


To be fair, I find that his style is closer to Eddie Hazel's than Hendrix's, though he does incorporate a lot Hendrix's stuff..

If you listen to Maggot Brain, I think every single technique/fill Fru has ever used is in that song, pretty much, hahaha. (And Before The Beginning is a bit like a differently titled cover of the song haha)

Oh but yes, Hazel would be inspired by Hendrix, no doubt..
