Buckethead, Clapton, Gilbert, Satriani, Vai

All good guitarists, all good to listen to, and all previously mentioned before me. If you want to venture into other genres, that is beyond me.
86% of the people who frequent the "Electric Guitar" forum would say that they have played guitar for under 5 years.

Buckethead is pretty insane. I also like peter frampton(Older stuff has singing, new cd doesnt) He has a few good songs.(One uses a talk box and is 13 minutes long! 0_0)
My setup specs:

Guitars: Fender 50's stratocaster
Old jr accoustic crap guitar.

Amp: Roland cube 20x (Going to probably be traded in for a blues jr soon though.)

Effects: Dunlop gcb-95 wah
Boss dd-6 delay

IMHO the best guitar player to liste to in the beginning is Tony Iommi. His riffs are so simple that almost averyone can play it. It is a good example for beginners i think
"You don't burn out from going too fast
You burn out from going too slow and getting bored"

Eric Johnson - Manhattan

John Butler (Ocean)

Joe Satriani (multiple songs)
Santana (multiple songs)

Dave Mustaine is an amazing guitarist, but Megadeth has lyrics of course.

Orion by Metallica? Dream Theater? Try Buckethead too.

There's tons of good guitarists, but not many write songs with no lyrics.
#25
like others have said, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani...

but other than those obvious choices, check out Andy Timmons and Shawn Lane.

I agree. Guitar work simply doesn't get more amazing then Beck...Yet he's one of the least discussed on teh forumz. Blow By Blow and Wired are great stuff for starters. Of course you can also check out his performances on Youtube.
