Hard to say. Maybe Pat Metheny.


Thanks a lot for the recommendation, I'm just got an album of his and it's fantastic!

Hillary Hahn -- my second favorite violinist of all time, and favorite living one.

Neil Peart -- greatest drummer ever -- yes, still.

Can't really compare the two, so I'll just mention them both.

Honorable mention to Steven Wilson, yes.

Buckethead -- while I'm a huge fan, he really needs an editor. He doesn't need to put out a record every single time he touches a guitar string. Cuckoo Clocks from Hell was an exercise in wankiness, I couldn't even finish listening to it. I refuse to buy anything from him without hearing it first anymore.
