    Richard Lloyd...studied under Hendricks, is a seasoned touring musician, and by the looks of his contributions to Guitar World, is one heck of a teacher.

    I'd love to chat about things Fractal with Mr Z for a few hours, but my choice would be

    Jeff Beck... :eek:

    I doubt if I'd absorb much, but it'd be great to watch him for 10 hours from the next seat... :lol: :cool:

    Osmosis is my friend. ;) :rolleyes:


    Second choice: Jimmy Page. I probably could finally learn "The Rain Song" properly if JP watched & corrected me for 10 hours... :lol:


    Third choice: Adam Jones.

    I'd want lessons from Snooks Eaglin.
    Someone's gonna say - stantheman Snooks has passed away.
    I say "Snooks Lives!!!"

    Besides in New Orleans the dead are seen regularly and have been for hundreds of years.

    Laugh all ya want.
    It's True.

    Ian Anderson.

    I've always admired his picking/strumming combinations.

    No point talking about his flute chops - the only way I could make music with a flute would be to string up four as a wind chime......

    Neil Young, 'cause he squeeeeezes more soul out of a middling-to-okay technique than most maestros. And I'll be damn lucky to get my chops up in the poor-to-middling range.
