OK, we all love Randy here and obviously he played a huge part in the musicians that many of us are today.

I thought it would be cool to hear where some of your other influences came from that shaped you as a player.

This is NOT a list of the greatest players of all-time. It is simply a list of the players who inlfuenced you the most as a guitarist.

My list:

1-Randy Rhoads
2-Eddie Van Halen
3-Alex Lifeson
4-Jimmy Page
5-Andy Summers
6-Stevie Ray Vaughn
7-Steve Howe
8-Pete Townsend
9-Joe Satriani
10-Tie: Slash/The Edge

Of course I love many other players, but these are the guys who I hear most in my own playing.

James Hetfield
Kirk Hammett
Jimi Hendrix
Ritchie Blackmore
Franz Beckerlee. Danish guitarist in 70's band Gasolin.
Scott Ian
Dave Mustaine
Randy Rhoads

Usally everything that is cool and inspires me to play/learn whatever is cool.

I love Randy's work but I'm not inspired to learn it note for note. I prefer my own style.

Here are my 6 major influences from the older 'top 5' thread:
Chronologically:
Brian May
Randy Rhoads
Michael Schenker
Pat Metheny
Yngwie Malmsteen
Ronni Le Tekro

...and I'll add:
Scott Gorham
Terje Rypdal
Jake E Lee
Audley Freed

There are so many others who influenced me for a period, but I don't hear in my playing or writing anymore.

I'll just paste what I had in the other thread...

1.Slash
2.David Gilmour
3.Randy Rhoads
4.Gary Moore
5.Rory Gallagher
6.Joe Satriani
7.Jimi Hendrix
8.John Butler
9.Brian Robertson, Scott Gorham
10.Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Janick Gers.

Yeah, I cheated on the last two, but it really is more the way their styles play off each other, and all of them as a unit that have influenced me stylistically more than any one of the combo.
