    Canadian blues-Rock guitarist Colin James has long been a favorite of mine...

    Hayden Nicholas from Clint Black's band. I got his first record for my 7th birthday so those were the first guitar parts I remember hearing.

    Rick McRae from George Strait's band.

    John Sykes from Blue Murder and Whitesnake. He has a killer vibrato.

    Good question. I'd hazard a guess that guitar players like other guitar players who improvise. Page seems to work out his solos ahead of time. He also will comp a solo together after several improvised takes. This is very much my own personal take on things, so maybe most people don't feel the same way that I do about improvising. There are other majorly good guitarists who don't improvise much, as far as I have heard. Chet Atkins being the best of this type.

    Back to Page. His solos on record are really, really good. They contribute to a song in much the same way that Harrison's solos do.

    Ditto. My band plays Hoochie Coo Chickie, which is a blast.

    I'm not sure that's the reason (if indeed, Page doesn't get discussed much at all). David Gilmour is well-known for doing both these things too, but he is frequently talked about by guitarists (rightly!).

    Bit of a paradox, Jimmy Page - it is often said that his playing is "sloppy", yet, as a former in-demand session guitarist with all the musical discipline that role demands, you would think his playing would be absolutely textbook.

    I'm thinking the "sloppiness" comes from certain substances though.

    But Page is certainly discussed on a weekly basis around here ... ? At least his "Dragon" Tele ...

    Yes, I'm sure all that excess will have taken its toll!

    Also, I agree, I don't think I've noticed a lack of discussion about Page anywhere.

    Jake E Lee. The guitar work on the Badlands albums is great. I love his twist on Fogerty's Green River in this song. The slide solo at the end of Whiskey Dust is one of my favorites. :cool:

    Pretty sure the original "no one talks about Jimmy Page" comment was a joke (rather obviously).
