David Gilmour - I am adding an 11th.

Nexion - Don't want to take the hijacking of this thread any further. Sorry. I wasn't trying to rag on you. It is just election time again and I get so frustrated with campaign speech because nobody talks about real solutions. They just say empty tag lines that appeal to voters. So I saw what you said and even knowing that you knew the improbabilities of not grading, I still had to respond.

It's not easy being green.... good thing I'm purple.

There are more but these I've heard and sort of know.

I don't know any of the big names, on a personal level like everyone else listed, so I'm going more on an intimate level.

Wow, I don't know what to say....[sniff, sniff], but Thanks, Bish! 8)

I may not be the best guitarist, but I do have a deep love for the music and I got a little bit of heart and soul.....

Well, it's been a longgggg time since I've logged into this forum and I thought I would update my favorites:

Guitar
1. John Frusciante- specifically solo material and Ataxia material
2. Adam Jones- the master of riffs and mood
3. Johnny Greenwood- his stuff is so ethereal, I love it
4. Guy Picciotto- Fugazi rules!
5. Josh Homme

Bass Guitar
1. Joe Lally- undisputed, the best
2. Justin Chancellor- insanely creative
3. Colin Greenwood
4. Jeff Caxide
5. Bryan Herweg

Drummer are a completely separate realm, I can pretty much appreciate any drummer's unique qualities. :D

Well now, Bish raises a good point. My favorite guitar music to listen to, or players whose artistry I most admire, might be a different matter and would certainly change from day to day. But lots of my favorite guitarists are right here on this board. 8)

Here's my list. I've been obsessively studying The Stone Roses lately so they're at the top. The rest aren't in a particular order.

1. John Squire
2. John Lennon
3. Jimi Hendrix
4. David Gilmour
5. Joao Gilberto
6. Slash
7. Jack White
8. Jimmy Page
9. Prince
10. Mississippi John Hurt

Not a definitive list by any means, just a few standouts off the top of my head.
