Mine is a constantly revolving and changing list.

The usual staples are Vai, Satch, Hendrix, SRV.

Latley it's been Gilbert, Cooley, Jimmy Herring and Bonamassa.

Steal from one person, and they call you a copy-cat. Steal from everyone and they call you a master.

My biggest influence is my older brother, because if not for him, I probably wouldn't play that there guitar...

Buckethead - my biggest influence, and what got me into seriously learning the guitar :bowdown:

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez - I love the textures he gives his guitar, another person who is influencing me to think outside the box, whatever box that may be. xD

John Petrucci - No explanation needed.

Brian May - one of the most seriously badass guitar players out there

Tosin Abasi - He use of extended range and music theory knowledge, just mind-blowing.

I have numerous others, but these ones definitely have influenced me the most.

It all started like,

John Petrucci, got me into seeing the guitar seriously.
Paul Gilbert, his technique and style got me even more into this.
Al Di Meola, John McLaughlim, made me love jazz and fusion.

I can name a lot guitarists that would actually inspire me and influence me, at the moment at least, I am into fursion so players like are analysed and played the most,
Greg Howe
Brett Garsed
Tom Quayle
Allan Holdsworth

Petrucci pushed me to the limits of my own patience
