    For me it's Kiko Loureiro. He seems to know a TON, and he's my favorite player.

    Christian from Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist for sure. I know at one point he offered lessons, but when I sent him a message on Facebook concerning his guitar tone on Cosmogenesis I never heard anything back, so I wasn't sure if he would respond if it were about lessons or not.

    Paul Waggoner from BTBAM also.

    Bulb or Tosin. The stuff they do is so crazy, and Im trying to branch out from my Melodic death roots.

    Loomis hands down. He's probably my all time favorite guitarist.

    He's just a wizard. His skills cannot be transferred to another through lessons.

    Masashi Hamauzu

    His sense of harmony and arrangement is unlike any other, and his compositions transcend anything beyond this world.

    John Petrucci man. :bowdown: he actually went to Berkeley :bowdown: and knows a lot of theory and how to tastefully apply it to songwriting. :bowdown: He could teach you anything you need to know. :bowdown:

    but it would also be cool to get inside the impossible intricate mind of Fredrik Thordendal, and have him teach me how to write complex rhythyms, although i'm not too shabby at that already. he could only teach me that one thing, whereas JP could teac me everything :bowdown:

    Vai.

    That man will teach you things about music and life that no other person on earth could tell you. Even if the majority of it is just sitting there, talking to the guy, with no guitars in our hands, but just talking about music and all that other stuff he's on about...it would be more priceless than anything I could learn from anyone else.
