Here are some more guitar players and other notable musicians you can enjoy!
Select your favorite genre!
Randy Rhoads - In my opinion the best at fusing hard rock and neo-classical styles. Had a tremendous influence on guitar players around the world. Lead guitarist for Quiet Riot and Ozzy Osborne. He also knows forchromatic riffs and brilliantly composed melodic guitar solos.
Steve Vai - Probably the most colorful approach of all. He is all about tone coloration by heavy use of whammy bark and "quick slides". He has a lot of character and personality that most players don't have.

Steve Morse - Sheer grit and technique. His roots come from jazz, blues and country. One of the more musical in the rock genre due to its fusion of many styles.
Shawn Lane - Probably the greatest technician of all time. This guy played riffs even a computer would have a hard time keeping up with. Incredible 7 fret stretch in the left hand. I tried it, you have to have fingers like an octopus to pull this off!
Yngwie Malmsteen - The greatest of the neo-classical genre. One of the fathers of speed-metal. The great thing is not just playing fast but is a great composer in his own right and has brought electric axemenship to the realm of Beethoven and Mozart.
Andreas Vollenweider - Indescribable musicianship. He primarily plays the Electro-Acoustic Harp but also ventures on such instruments as the Japanese Koto. Try not to get a tear if you hear him live. His playing inspired me with the harp being like the perfect cross between classical guitar and piano.
Alex Lifeson - Probably the greatest musical story teller in the genre of rock. He has taken the instrument pretty much everywhere it can go. He holds down the chordal framework and leads in the band Rush.
