Wow Tof, your fan club is pretty, and young - but there aren't that many fans, no? :P

About the OP's question: too many to name them. It would be unfair to even start, because I would forget too many :)

But yes, Tof is one of them - so he has a second (and even male) fan here hehe...

I don't really hear anything above 800Hz but I've heard about this instrument that can fill that space.... :-P

Joking aside, there are many very fine guitarists here who I enjoy listening to more that most 'professional' musicians. But to restrict myself to just one non-wikilooper I would probably choose....

Adrian Belew (playing with Talking Heads)

Cool you are a Belew fan GE.
Late 70's my band played the same local band circuit as Adrians band.
Some how my band managed to snatch his drummer "Mike Hodges". Great drummer.
Soon after Mike joined back up with Adrian and went on to play with Zappa and Bowie.

Hmmm guitars? Guitars? Wait... I always confuse these with egg slicers... :P

Still far too many to even start. But some others did already, and yes, those would be part of my list as well...

Thank you Rob. I am being very sincere in saying you and those in your list have inspired me mutually as well. Your acoustic is a huge influence on me even if I dont always comment. Thank you very much, Rob.

On a side note addressed to everyone...here is some Belew with the Heads.
