    • Eric Clapton: specifically his work form Derek And The Dominos to how Slowhand album. His guitar work is just dripping with feeling.
    • Dick Dale: whose stuff is just so much fun to play
    • Joan Jett: proof that you don't need to be monster guitar shredder to write good rockin' music.
    • Jimmy Page: specifically, the layering of textures and the way he mixes the tracks in Led Zeppelin songs is incredible. I strive to be as good as he someday.
