Who in your opinion is the most influential guitar player ever (i.e. guitar player who has influenced the most guitarists and their sound and been most innovative and original).

I would have to say EVH.

Jimi Hendrix

LOL your kidding right?

In this day and age, it would have to be people like Buckethead, Vai, Satriani, Paul Gilbert etc.

back in the day and still today, it would have to be people like Hendrix, Page, etc.

I must agree on that one... while I was waiting for this thread to load I was thinking of both of them and couldn't decide who to put on here. Then I saw the other reply and thought yeah. It's a tie between Page and Hendrix. They really brought rock guitar into a new realm. And pushed the limits and went into the beyond. If I had to pick a personal favorite... I would say Page. I personally think Zepp is the most kick ass rock band ever. Still. They are pretty much untouchable. They define kick-ass rock n'roll...

name a guitarist whos style who brought as many new guitar techniques to the mainstream...tapping, pinch harmonics, tapped harmonics, dive bombs, tremelo picking etc.

Most old blues guitarists tbh. I don't think its fair to single out one because they all brought so much. Robert Johnson gets all the press but he learnt a lot of songs like preachin blues from Son House and 'hellhound on my trail' borrows almost all the main riff from Skip James.

People like big joe williams are important too for some percussive guitar stuff and then you got the greats like John Lee Hooker (go listen to him for abit, it's pretty obvious hendrix payed attention to some of johns guitaring) and then of course Muddy Waters...
