This is kind of an offshoot of the other thread, but I didn't want to directly hijack it, so I thought I'd do a new one. My question would not be who's the best, but who's the most influential. IMHO, I think it's Brent Mason. I hear so many picker's who are very derivative of the licks he does. A close second would go to Danny Gatton, probably only because he's not as well known.
