When I was just a youngin' my guitar heroes were George Lynch, Yngwie, Nuno, and CC Deville (ok, stop laughing, I was young and impressionable) So who are your guitar heroes of yesteryear and today? My heroes of today are mainly from the Death/Heavy metal scene. So here is my list of some of my favorite players today....this list will hopefully change as new players emerge.....so let me know your faves......

Alexi Laiho---Children of Bodom
Bill Steer, Michael Amott--Carcass, Arch Enemy
Dimebag----Pantera
Vogg--Decapitated
Jesper Stromblad, Bjorn Gelotte---In Flames
Peter Wichers, Ola Frenning---Soilwork
Dominic Cifarelli----Pulse Ultra
Galder--Dimmu Borgir, Old Man's Child

Just realized you listed In Flames' guitarists up there.

They're my absolute favorite band right now. STYE is an absolute clinic on writing tastefully heavy metal riffs.

Wow, that's a great list. I've been to clinics by Zakk, Petrucci, Morse, and Timmons, and Jon Finn was one of my teachers... I think my lost would be identical, and for sure, lynch would be at the top. NICE!

I absolutely love Lynch. I do a ton of 1st-5th fret pull offs for fills like he does. It's not an intentional cop of his style, but I grew up wanting nothing more than to be like George, and his style grew into mine. I don't think he gets enough credit outside of guitarist circles. Someone could toss in a CD of him playing Jingle Bells, and I would probably recognize his playing. He definitely has his own distinct sound and tone, and it's fantastic.

Hell, who else could record a tune with the Nelson brothers singing and make it cool?

As far as Finn, the guy is amazing. I saw him open for DT a few years back, and he played a song called "If Stevie Ray Vaughan went to Berklee and studied Jazz". 15 minutes of jaw-dropping, yet tasteful, jazz acrobatics that never once strayed from the groove of the song. Instead of him sounding like a guitarist shredding over a backing band, it was a band simply tearing the .... out of a medley of SRV tunes in perfect unison. Once I picked my jaw off the floor and cleaned up the mess in my pants, I'm pretty sure he played something else cool too.

My favs:
Alexi Laiho
Rusty Cooley
Jason Becker
Eric Peterson & Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT!)
Paul Gilbert
Michael Romeo
Zakk Wylde

as far as 7 string influences:
Carcass - Im pretty sure they used 7's and not baritones
Nevermore - Jeff Loomis \m/
Dream Theater - JP
Rusty Cooley(As above)
Chris Broderick (Jag Panzer)-- I Cant wait till his DVD comes out, he's one of the coolest guys ever.

I also think that George Lynch , Glen Alevias/Craig Locicero (FORBIDDEN EVIL!) and Jon Schaffer and the maiden guys get runners up ;p

Skolnick is awesome. When I was a wee lad, "The Ballad" was one of the first tunes I learned how to play. Chuck Billy had a bunch of health problems and I don't really dig his "new" voice, but still, Testament ....ing kicks ass.

I need to mention Criss Oliva in this thread too. Awesome player.

I'm a HUUUUGE Testament fan, i've gotten to see them live, got pics with Chuck & Eric, Got Eric's guitar pick from that show, i got 2 signed albums, the works lol
I think Chuck's new voice on the Gathering and First Strike owns hard. If i'm not mistaken, he's completely healed now. but Eric just broke his leg in 3 places...
