Do you tap? If you do much at all, he probably had a bit of an influence on you.

No. If that were true he might allow his other musicians input into the songwriting. It's true that he's not being a guitar hero (though it's not as though he isn't the most respected rhythm player in the past decade), but he stresses being in control over the music. True perfectionism is not about being a control freak ceaselessly; it allows input if it makes the music better. He'd rather his music come out poorly than any way other than his way.

I picked up the guitar because of Dimebag and Zakk Wylde, but neither of them would top my list at the moment. The same is equally true of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Brian May (good to see somebody mentioned him), Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kenny Burrell, and any number of guitarists in this vain. I guess I still idolize them, but they're not so ever-present in my mind.

Probably the players I've had the most respect for are as follows:

Jeff Loomis
Scott Ian
Andy Laroque
Dave Mustaine
Chuck Schuldiner
Daniel Mongrain
Trey Azagthoth
Kirk Windstein
Fredrik Thordendal
Brian Patton

It feels odd having so many rhythm players on here, but what can you do? If none of these guys could write a good riff, they'd have no business being on my list to begin with.

OK, maybe he hasn't been around as long as rhoads or becker, but not A SINGLE MENTION OF MUHAMMED SUICMEZ? WTF??!! HE WROTE ONSET OF PUTREFACTION WITHIN 3 YEARS OF PICKING UP A GUITAR!

However, Becker is no. 1 for me.
other mighty guitar idols, in no particular order:
Chuck Schuldiner
Trey Azagthoth
Frederik Thordendal
Luc Lemay
Paul Masvidal
Joe Haley
Doug Cerrito
Allan Holdsworth

Without Socrates, where would philosophy be?
Without guitars, where would music be?
Without distortion, where would rock be?
Without T.V., where would society be? (probably better)
Without computers, what the fuck would I be doing right now?

See? You've got to give credit to people who have contributed to your happiness. It's reaping the benfits with out giving respect. Like getting into heaven without believing in God.

Dimebag Darrell
Gary Moore
Randy Rhoads
Zakk Wylde
Tony Iommi
Dave Mustaine
Steve Vai
Stevie Ray Vaughan
John Petrucci
Jeff Beck
Eric Clapton

I love to listen to / play anything by any of these.

Favorite Guitarists...

Hey, really too many too list on this one but here's a partial list of my favorites/most influential:

-Dimebag
-Randy Rhoads
-Van Halen
-Marty Friedman
-Jimmy Page
-Michael Schenker (Only saw him mentioned once?? what's up?)
-Steve Vai
-Eric Johnson
-Gary Moore (thought no one was gonna mention him until I finally saw him in the post right before this. Once again, wtf?? )
-Mike Stern (Jazz player, fucking awesome!)
-Al Di Meola (Guys, c'mon if you haven't checked out Di Meola you really should)

And for good measure an up-n-comer:

-Synyster Gates (from Avenged Sevenfold, they haven't been around long, maybe a few years, but for such a young dude this guys prolly gonna go a long way. If you haven't heard him check out Second Heartbeat from the album Waking the Fallen. I love his rhythms and the whole song rox, but he's got a solo starting at about 6:10 and going through the end of the song that's a good sample of his work. But you really should check out the whole album )

EDIT: How could I forget Steve Morse??

allright
DIMEBAG is my favorite guitarist and ill tell you why
he could shred better than anyone reading this could even understand
his knowledge of music was underated, he could play anything he wanted
he may not technically be the best but ive never heard anyone in history write as nasty rhythm parts and throw down the perfect lead.....every single song.....i mean people like yngwie and vai are incredible but i dont have their music in my head all day its motherfuckin pantera

and if ur down with blues check out roy buchanan

For me i'd have to say there are 2 guitarists that really really made me feel the music. And they would have to be Dimebag and Steve Vai.

The solo's by Dime: The Sleep, Floods, 10's and We'll meet again were truly heaven sent for me.

And Steve Vai's Tender Surrender and For Love of God are only a couple of the many many Vai songs i could listen to over and over.
