    How about Herb Alpert. This is the guy that made me take up the trumpet.

    I have heard some of Gib's musical work and it's quite impressive.

    BTW Gib, I play a vintage Gibson Ripper bass guitar, as well as the banjo and acoustic guitar.

    As far as choosing favorites per the OP, this would be tough..as I like so many in various genres.

    Some Icons of mine would probably be Robert Fripp, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, Adrian Belew, Martin Barre....I could go on and on....and on.

    I like this old dated video of Belew...if you ever see him live, you can tell he really loves what he does and has fun.

    While not strictly an instrumentalist, I still feel like Michael Hedges deserves mention here.

    The first time I ever saw the guy was on Don Kirschner; he played a custom instrument which was a double neck acoustic; bass on the top and six-string on the bottom. It was set up as an open tuning and the song he played featured tapping, hammers and pull offs almost the whole way.

    It was one of the most amazing performances I've ever seen!

    They didn't call him "the guitarist from another planet" for nothing!
    "Social networking" is an oxymoron.

    One more for the list....Wes Montgomery.

    You don't think Clapton is better than him? What about Neal Young?

    I liked Eric Clapton better when he was on drugs and I do like Neil Young's music (with Crazy Horse), but his off key chords and singing get on my nerves after a while.

    This has always been one of my favorite bands...very progressive. Growing up I only found one friend that appreciated them as much as I did.

    Wonder if there are any other fans of these guys out there in HTALK world.

    Gregg Allman released a CD about maybe 1 year ago that I think is some of his best work. Called Low Country Blues. I grab it a lot. Maybe clean and sober works.

    While I like Neil Young's work, it is very simplistic...just major and minor pentetonics. Very easy to solo to. People like Satriani use phrygian, myxalodian and other modes which makes their music more complex, and interesting IMHO.

    Dickie Betts was my favorite.
