Great suggestions.
I’ve never made any kind of list in my head.
Some more suggestions would be:
Mark Tremonti
Slash (I’m listening to Velvet Revolver right now)
David Gilmour
Jimmy Page
I recommend Yasi hofer. She’s awesome and did somethings with Steve Vai.

Melbourne, Australia
For me, in no particular order:
James Hetfield
Mark Knopfler
David Gilmour
Jeff Hanneman
Dimebag Darrell
Picking 5 is really hard, I can already think of another handfull I could easily swap out some of these with.

Man, tough one! There’s so many amazing guitarists out there, but if I’m going off ones who influence ME the most, I’d have to say.
1: Zacky V (the reason is that as a guitarist, I feel most similar to him. I play solid Rhythm but I need to improve my Leads as he’s done over the years and from learning from Syn. That’s why Zacky influences me the most and I feel I relate to him in many ways).
2: Syn (As a lead guitarist he’s incredibly talented, has a wide variety of styles & influences he incorporates in A7X, and he just has such a creative and unique style).
3: James Hetfield/Kirk Hammett (James for similar reasons as my reasons for Zacky in certain ways. James is just a killer Rhythm guitarist who can play some nice, not over the top leads. I feel like Rhythm Guitarists don’t get enough credit either haha)
4: John Petrucci
5: Dimebag Darrell
