James Hetfield, lead singer and rhythm guitarist for Metallica, is an amazing rhythm player. The speed, precision, tightness, complicated riffs and different time signatures are great. And he also keeps the vocals going over that.

Jeff Healey, there's a name I haven't heard in many years. He had some great chops and a very unique playing style (because he was blind).

Your pick of Susan Tedeschi is awesome. Saw her in a YouTube vid playing “The Sky is Crying” at the Royal Albert hall. Fantastic. Hair on my neck stands up every time I watch that vid.

Nice to see another Duke Robillard fan, Doug. I've been a big fan of his for a long time, and being fairly local have seen him many times.

I can't help but noticing he is the last man standing in your list. Hopefully he will be back out playing when things resume!

Allen Holdsworth, who, unfortunately, is no longer with us. Had a very unique guitar voice that influenced folks like Eddie Van Halen and others. His solo starts around the 3:40 mark.

I think I saw Eric Johnson mentioned twice and no mention yet of Andy Timmons. Let me help. Along with all the usual suspects everyone has mentioned:

Eric Johnson
Andy Timmons

To me, generally deserve more recognition in these type of discusions:

"Rik" Emmett
Gary Richrath
Eddie Hazel

Best,

Mac
