I'm surprised to see quite a few fellow Frusciante followers (whats that called when a group of words in a row with the same first letter like the last four words of my previous sentence)

A few fellow Frusciante followers is called alliteration, just like a group of Green, Guy and Gilmour geeks :D

Ten. Hmmm. Top four or five in order, but no preference amongst the others

Andres Segovia

Good call, Alan! Talk about an innovator, my goodness.

That's the word I was looking for, alliteration, 11th grade english, it's all coming back to me now!

I must say Billie Joe Armstrong.

Some people may find his guitar amazingly simple , yet it pumps me up like no one else. (and not to forget Mike Dirnt's bass and Tre Cool's drums :D )

Man, too many regrets:
Sorry, Lou Reed, I should've put you in my top 10, but I'm Beginning to See the Light, haha. (Hope you guys get that)

It would be easier for me to list those that I DON'T like. :?

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

To make this easier, no restrictions.

We'll make this a thread where you can come if you think you're going to explode if you don't say which guitarist(s) you're digging.

LOU REED!

Phew! That was a close one!

I didn't see anyone mention Eric Johnson; got to have him, even if just for his perfect tone.

And, I second Alex Lifeson. What a catalog of great music, and largely ignored when people talk of guitar gods.
