      Muddy, Chuck, Christian, Oscar Moore, Chet...and I don't play like any of them, but all influenced how [and, perhaps more importantly, what] I play. There are many others, and naming 5 took me a while.

              Since I'm only going to list five...

              My father
              Ritchie Blackmore
              Jeff Beck
              George Benson
              Robben Ford
              Mark Knopfler

              And a host of others. who actually changed the way I approach the instrument. Jimi, of course, changed the way we all approach it.

              I started listing the main influences and when I got to a dozen I stopped. I then started to eliminate the ones that were a little less influential than the others.

              As a human being, you come with the whole range of inner possibilities
              from the deepest hell to the highest states.

              It is up to you which one you choose to explore
              .

                I'd love to get lessons from a guy like Mark Knopfler or Richard Thompson !!!!

              1. Mason Williams. In college one summer, he taught me basic chords, strums and finger picking patterns. I bought a Martin classical guitar just like his.
              2.Wes Montgomery
              3. Bo Diddly
              4. Muddy Waters
              5. BB King

              Not that I have been able to play like any of them.........

                It's not about money or popularity , although some money would be nice.

                      The 1st four are carved in stone but I'm always indecisive about the 5th. Right now I feel like it might be Ronnie Montrose.

                        Keith Richards
                        Jimmy Nolan (James Brown)
                        Mike Ronson (David Bowie)
                        Peter Frampton
                        The Edge

                        Though when I comes down to it, I'm much more impressed with good songwriting. There are a lot of great guitar players, but if they're not playing a great song it just doesn't appeal to me.
