So if you had a genie grant you the ability to play guitar as good as anyone you wanted, whom would you choose? Jimi? Stevie? Robin? Chet? Mark?.....?
<div class="signaturecontainer">WARNING: TC Electronics Pedals Are NOT REPAIRABLE. Instead of fixing my switch they wanted to charge me $72 plus shipping on a $99 pedal to replace all electronics, when only the switch was defective. This is their blanket repair policy on ALL repairs. They have no replacement switches. The switch is on the board so substituting a different switch can't work. Do not buy pedals from companies that cannot repair their own switches.</div>
My "hero" choices would be Lifeson, Gilmour or Angus Young; but believe it or not, I would love to play like the co-guitarist in my band. He never plays a solo exactly the same twice, but he doesn't lose the signature or feel of the meaning either. He always plays what he feels at the moment with the confidence and poise of a pro.
I can think of a lot of guitarists I'd put on the list, but today, the first one that popped into my head was Albert Lee.

"The music business will be revitalized by musicians, not the labels or Live Nation. When the musicians decide to put music first, instead of money, the public will flock to the fruits and the scene will be healthy again."
My serous answer... I don't know. There were two elements of truth to my previous answer.
1) I wish I had cleaner technique and dexterity, speed, physical reach, cleaner bending techniques. 2) Wish I could play finger style quickly, including crazy tapping techniques like Andy McKee And to add to that 3) Wish I had that innate musical theory to fretboard knowledge to put all those physical tools to better use.

I think i attempt to sound like other people but im just not good enuff or too lazy or just know better than to ape someone elses playimg. I try to cop what they do, then fail and what i wind up with is how i sound, but i embellish my interpretation of them with stuff that trips me out .
Im a big Trower fan and he stresses that you can study someone be influenced by them But dont copy them!!!
