Hey I was wondering... What CR guitarists have influenced your playing?

For me it was Page for a while but I think I have a realy big Iommi influence in my playing now. Also Syd Barretts odd style shows up in me a lot. In general I think I have a pretty unique style and it changes as my musical taste does.

(Randy Rhoads too but he isn't CR. I started learning Classical scales recently because of him)

EDIT: Crap I forgot David Gilmoure! He has a huge one on me too...

I was never really influenced by classic rock players as I was too much into metal, shred etc. However, in the past few months Ive spent a while trying to broaden my playing so I've been playing a lot of AC/DC. So Im gonna have to say Angus Young, but I have also been majorly influenced by Hendrix and Clapton and a lot of others too.

Angus Young for hard rockin' riffs
Jimmy Page for bluesy solos
Jimi Hendrix for extensive use of the wah-wah pedal
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison for melody
And (even though he's not really CR) Johnny Ramone, for the whole in-your-face punk attitude of things

Quite a fucked up choice of influences, but hey, it works!

For me its Hendrix and Clapton for total show off bluesy solos, and a bit of it is accidentally Jimmy Page for (slight :P) sloppiness when playing fast....
And of course Mr.David Gilmour for lifting songs to a whole new level with a single guitar solo

Okay, that made me laugh.

I guess it's not really a fucked up mix of influences, it's just that...if you put those guitarists all together in one band, it won't mix. At all. So if I can put em all together...I'm ecclectic.

Angus Young, Dave Gilmour, Pete Townshend, and Neil Young. And even though It is not CR, I am very influnced by bluegrass banjo. I incorporate a lot that fast picking and finger picking stuff into some of my music. Sounds fancy.

Main influences for me would have to be Eddie Van Halen, Slash(even though he isn't considered CR here), Jimmy Page, John Petrucci(but he's progressive), Iron Maiden's guitarist(not CR either), Angus Young, and Joe Perry.

Not really sure, hard to tell my influences seeing as I don't really write my own stuff. But if I did it wouldn't really sound influenced from any classic rock bands.

In all honesty I'd say my biggest influences have come from Peter Frampton and Jimmy Page.
At a time when I was getting interested in guitar, those guys were big news and Frampton Comes Alive was doing the rounds as well as Led Zeppelin's albums.

I was also a big fan of Ace Frehley, but out of them all I'd have to say both Frampton and Page were the biggest to influence me. Throw a bit of EVH in the mix as well, but that didn't happen until '78.

David Gilmour for the sheer melodicness of this writing and playing has really influenced me along with Clapton, Hendrix, SRV and Omar Rodriguez (although he isn't CR, he's got a lotta CR influences).

Jimmy Page for the riffs.
Hendrix and SRV for their trick play.
Clapton for the blues.
Garcia for the mellow moods.
Warren Haynes, Dickie Betts, Duane Allman for the Improvising
Derek Trucks because he's so young and so good (he's not from the CR era, but he plays with the Allmans)
Santana for being so ****ing good live.
