Influential Guitarists

List is guitarists that I love, who've influenced rrrrrmy style, while sparking the rpassion to rrprogress.
1Alice In Chains

Jerry Cantrell -
Heavy yet bluesy: A lot of times the heavier the music the less room for
but Jerry has a great balance of heavy and soulful playing. Also, his solos are
Notable work: Rain When I Die
2Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble

Great Tone: Created his own tone while sacrificing some killer calluses. His
blows me away every time and you can always hear something that you hadn't
heard the previous time you had listened. Ex: mutes, plucks, ghost notes
Notable work: Little Wing

Chuck Shuldiner -
Technical yet Simple?: All while playing in easy tuning with easy power chord
structures Chuck manages to be technical as all hell. Also, a great identifiable
that reminds me of what it would be like to be a virtuoso from hell.
Notable work: Flesh and the Power It Holds
4Led Zeppelin

Jimmy Page -
Unconventional: His chords are at times questionable on paper or on the screen.
But once you hear the song it all makes sense. Always heard dark overtones from
Jimmy. An obvious icon for aspiring guitarists.
Notable work: Stairway to Heaven

Ian Mackaye AND Guy Piccioto -
Chaotic Harmony: One wouldn't work nearly as well without the other and both are
equally chaotic while still maintaining their own styles and never stepping on
others toes. First time I heard some of their material I thought there were like
guitar tracks.
Notable work: Repeater

Mikael Akerfeldt -
Brutiful: Complex yet effortless. Manages to have technicality without sounding
even close to over doing it. Structures and transitions are fluent. From
Brutality to
a serene passage nearly lulling you into some sort of demonic trance before
unleashing some good old DM fury.
Notable work: Blackwater Park
7Queens of the Stone Age

Josh Homme -
Quirky: Is it bluesy? Is it funky? Is it heavy? I don't even know but I am able
identify Josh seemingly struggling to play a progression. Oh wait, that's just
pushing bounderies. Notable work: Song for the Dead
8Dire Straits

Mark Knopfler -
Fuck it: I'm tired of losing my pick i'll just use my fingers. I've never seen
get such range of dynamic without a pick. It's a smooth jazzy style and the
just add to the warmth.
Notable work: Sultans of Swing
9White Stripes

Jack White -
Revival: Jack keeps it pretty traditional but all while reinventing the sound of
blues to a modernized sound that bands are continuing to replicate because of
sounds rate of success. And those screaching solos are bliss.
Notable work: Ball and Biscuit
10Black Sabbath

Tony Iommi -
Darkness is born: Tony influenced the most diverse sub-genre of rock and roll:
Metal. He solidified and mastered the evil that distortion, minor progressions,
arpeggiations can create. He lured a great deal of people and musicians to the
Notable work: The Wizard
