    Absolutely agree on feel. (By the way, speaking of that, watch my video on Clapton above. He has more feel in 3 notes than I'll emote in a month.) Which brings me to realize I'm ashamed I didn't include David Gilmour in my top 5. Can we make it top 5 1/2?

    5-1/2, 10-3/4 is it really enough? I really was not thinking straight when I said 5. At this point, add as many as you feel, there are so many.

    nothing wrong with Neil Young, I'm actually surprised nobody has thrown Steve Howe's name in the ring

    I can't tell you how happy I am to see Tommy Bolin's name on a list of favorite guitarists! I've been a Bolin fan for a long time, but sadly he's almost a forgotten man except to those of us that...um, have a few miles on the clock! Tommy could play it all, from jazz to hard rock, it's just unfortunate that he stayed at the party a little too long.

    Getting down to 5 was extremely hard, but here it is, in no particular order and subject to change daily depending on who I'm listening to:
    Randy Rhoads
    SRV
    Brian Setzer
    Freddie King
    Peter Frampton
