    hmm

    Probably someone like Chet Atkins or Roy Buchanan. Guys who could just plug a guitar into and amp and sound amazing. A lot of choices here wouldn't catch anyone's attention if you turned the gain down on their amp.

    These three individuals are the biggest influences on my guitar playing and style. So either of them I would love to play like.

    This would be my second pick.

    The guy is the most gifted player alive right now I think.

    His technical command of the instrument, knowledge and everything is god tier.

    I really like cool ambient and dreamlike soundscapes done with guitar, but I can't pinpoint any one artist there.
    I would love to be able to play like Carl Perkins or The Reverend Horton Heat/Jim Heath.

    Nuno is way underrated. Probably the most badass sounding of all the guys you listed. A great combination of technique, feel, rock n roll flair and charisma.

    I’ve seen all of them live and simply no.You want flair and charisma watch any SRV live performance,never mind his tone,technique,feel,stage presence.
    Do you even know who Alex Skolnik is?Nuno more badass than even him is blasphemy.

    Nuno is still more badass though. SRV is probably the electric guitar GOAT. Skolnick is fast, technical and awesome, but Nuno's sound is still more badass - kind of a combination of EVH and Hendrix. That's a badass sound to me and he more than fits in with the others you mentioned.

    Probably Brent Hinds, I'm not even a Mastodon fan but I just like how weird and unique his lead style is.
