Recently I fell in love with this guy and his masterpieces:

This guy rocks. I tried to learn the first one (not mature yet to learn the second) and I realised there were no good tabs, and to access good tabs we have to buy them.

So I was hoping you could show me some fusion guitarists similar to this guy and some pieces similar to his, and some Fusion pieces with bluesy and jazzy influences.

Thanks

Shawn Lane's mellower stuff is pretty similar ("Not Again", "Get You Back" for example)
Brett Garsed is pure fusion at its finest
Eric Johnson is quite similar to Schackinger ("City Lights" reminds me of EJ's "Manhattan")
Larry Carlton is always good to learn

Those are just a few, I could name more if you want.

Yeah dude, that guy rocks. I like City Lights the most. He plays with lot of soul and technique. I recommend Guthrie Govan, he can play anything. Fusion, rock, blues, slide, country, hip hop, techno, he is a monster man.

Huh, Steffen Shackinger, I liked that. Guthrie Govan was good too.

Steffen made me think of Jimmy Herring. Jimmy's been with a number of bands; The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jazz Is Dead, The Dead, Phil Lesh and Friends, The Allman Brothers Band, Project Z, Endangered Species, Frogwings, Widespread Panic, and his own Jimmy Herring Band. He's one of my favorites.

It took a while to find some videos of decent quality, but for better or worse, the one and only Jimmy Herring:

Shackinger and Govan are two of my favorite guitarists, Garsed, Ford, Carlton are also amazing


I might suggest Dave Martone, his stuff is pretty varied, and a little heavier than Shackingers but I enjoy it

That was pretty awesome, some of his work reminds me of Van Halen (electriguitaristry, the song), Eric Johnson (City Lights), and then u got so many other influences like Allman Brothers, Joe Satriani, and the list goes on...but man that was great.
