I was just about to write the same thing. If you want to hear some of his music, i recommend:

Fuzz Universe (song)
Bach partita in Dm
Curse of the castle dragon
Eudamonia overture

And some of his older stuff (over 6 years old):

Scarified
Technical difficulties
Hammer away

Here's to the greatest guitarist ever!!!

If we're just talking indie guitarists...

Dan Auerbach does the whole "simple but effective" thing better than just about any other band that tries it.

J Mascis maybe too. The man is like an untamed beast ready to shred up a hurricane for hours if provoked correctly.

Mike Stroud from Ratatat because, well, just listen to Ratatat if you're not sure why.

Indie guitarists, I like Isaac Brock. I love the bends he does, especially them harmonic bends. His playing style is pretty unique too. EDIT: Didn't notice the past 5-6 years in the title. Whatever.

Also, Paul Gilbert is boring.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez
Patrick and Matthew Flegel (both from Women)
Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear/Department of Eagles)
Mike Stroud (Ratatat)

Love those guys.

EDIT: And whoever plays the guitars on The Ocean and The Sun by The Sound of Animals Fighting. I think it's Matthew Embree from RX Bandits (I know he played on The Tiger and The Duke and Lover, The Lord Has Left Us) and Steve Choi, but I'm not sure.

some days it takes three cups of tea and a mountain dew to wake up,
the following nights the stars are always far too bright
and there is a certain trance evoked by the moonlight
