answer truthfully which guitarist's playing style you think matches yours the most. for me i'd have to say Dave Murray of Iron Maiden because i find hammerons and pulloffs very natural and easy and I like to string powerchords together in cool ways. he plays the second solo on the trooper for those of you who don't know maiden well.

Where can we go, when will we find that, we know.
John Frusciante, yet not on purpose...
Lord knows I'm weak, won't somebody get me off of this reef...
I would say.. Billy Corgan.. either him or James Iha... lol.. it just flows naturally..
kirk hammet (i don't do it on purpose) and adrian smith, i have a bluesy/rock style for metal.

On electric, I'd have to say John Mayer with that blues feel to it, but on acoustic I'd be more like John Butler and Tommy Emmanuel.*

* I'm not comparing myself to these incredible guitarists, it's just an analogy.

Chuck Schuldiner, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Mikael Akerfeldt, and Muhammed Suicmez furled into one awesome ball of awesome.

cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory
I don't know really. I play bass with the mentality of a keyboard player. All chords and arpeggios.
ace frehley mixed with clapton and some jack white thrown in there
Ted: [Whispering to Bill] Your stepmom is cute.
Bill: Shut up, Ted.
Ted: Remember when she was a senior and we were freshmen?
Bill: Shut up, Ted!
I play an orgasmic combination of David Gilmour and Santana with funky fills a la John Frusciante...oh my, I seem to have came in my pants just thinking about that incredible sound

i'd have to say mine's mostly Robby Krieger, with a little Josh homme and Adam d thrown in sometimes.
dirt from the bravery, i like to incorporate the 8th note to make it feel swingish (bass)
Loomis of the technical side, with out thinking just straight aggro....riggs, or rob from cannibal
I don't know if its more of a want to sound like clapton or that i kind of do. I deffinetly try and play like him though. Especially when he was with Cream. A lot of women tone and throw in some wah wah everynow and then
Give me a 60's kind of life
depends on what im playing ethier i sould like

I'm gonna say I don't know. I've taken a lot of things usually associated with other instruments and incorporated them into my playing. Jack of all techniques, shall we say? And I do so much varied things that I can't say "well, musically I think like this guy."

As a bassist, I play alot like James Jamerson, unless you're a bassist, you probably don't know who he is, but he played on many of the old motown records and was truly a phenomenol musician.

After becoming comfortable with bass, I spent a long time taking an in-depth study of his lines. I didn't necesessarily learn how he made his lines (I was too young of a musician, I didn't understand music that far in-depth), I just learned to play them. But most of all I learned to feel what he did. And that "feel" I got was what I determined should be a proper bassline.

So now I've branched out into my own style, but I carry alot of his influence with me.

That's a pretty good comparison actually.

I play guitar with elements of John Frusciante in BloodSugar and Califonication styles in that I try to fill space with both rhythm and melody. Specifically playing chords, then throwing in melodies whenever I get the opportunity.

Distorted I wanna say Billy Corgan-ish. Of course lacking the backing tracks but making power chord progressions into the backbone of what's going on.
on guitar Mike McCready

on bass its hard to pin it down, I used to be a Flea rip offer, now I think I'm pretty independant from any one style.
