Nobody really influences how I play per se, cos I'm too lazy and ignorant to really study them. But in terms of making me want to pick up a guitar:

Zakk
Dime
Satch
Dave Murray
EVH

Probably most consistently over time. But I've been swayed by everyone from Angus Young to Zachary Breaux.

Checked him out just now. Seems pretty good! I'm moving away from the 80's sound but I enjoyed that.

I forgot to put Rick Graham in my list, whoops.

I'd only seen a single out last time I checked. I know what the kids are listening to in the car tomorrow now though! :mrgreen:
