    Hard to pick just 10, but in no particular order:

    Bill Frisell
    David Torn
    Robert Fripp
    Jimmy Hendrix
    Henry Kaiser
    Jorma Kaukonen
    Tom Verlaine
    Sonny Landreth
    Pete Cosey
    Adrian Belew
    Jerry Garcia
    Buckethead

    Looks like that's 12. Guess it really is hard to pick just 10, and I've left out a bunch of folks...

    Clearly Dave & I would get along...I thought *I* had written that list when I first started reading it!

    ...well, until I got to Garcia.

    And I'd have to add Pat Martino & Steve Howe to my list.

    Hello Ed,

    From some of your posts I thought we might have similar tastes. The Garcia thing is a remnant of my misspent youth. You can't see 200+ Dead shows without something rubbing off. On the other hand, about 10 years ago, my band spontaneously broke into a Dead song at a gig, and I couldn't for the life of me play a single Jerry lick, but I'm sure he's in there somewhere.

    Another guy I left out (among many) is Pete Cosey, Miles' guitarist in the mid 70's (Aghartha, Pangea, etc). I had the pleasure of seeing him with Power Tools (sitting in for Frisell) about 12 years ago, and there's definitely still some playing from that night I can point to in my own stuff.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned Michael Hedges.
