Hendrix was the reason that I even started to even think about playing. I still dream about being able to play like him.

Joe Perry from Aerosmith was my intro-to-guitar. Though my current favorite is Omar Rodregez Lopez(sp?) from The Mars Volta.

Angus Young - Intro to guitar
Slash - Made me pick one up and was the reason for me playing.

Slash is my all time fav. But my list is huge to all the guitarist that I love. Just Slash will be #1 always.

Eric Clapton. I'll go through phases where I don't listen to him much, or really get into another guitarist, but in the end, whenever I eventually return to him, I always say "He's still my favorite."

I started to play guitar because of my grandfather playing. Then the day after I got my guitar I found Randy Rhoads.

Jimi Hendrix made me want to play guitar. But now my favorite is a toss up between Randy Rhoads and Christopher Parkening. If you're into classical, this guy is the best.
