        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.

                  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.
