For slide guitar? Duane. One of my most heartfelt "Bazaam" moments was reading that Duane used to copy slide licks off records by tuning to the song and then playing along 'till he "Hit the note"...Using his toe, he would lift the needle off the record and "relocate" it back to the spot and sound he was trying to emulate until he had the intonation down. I did the very same thing (Before reading that) on the DA Anthologies, song after song, when one day his signature riffs became habit. After Duane, I listened to Elmore James, Ry Cooder, David Lindley, Dickey, Roy Rogers & Bonnie Raitt. Dickey was a slide dilemma for me because I felt his style was "lazier" contrasted with Duane's commitment to "Sneaking up to" and holding on to notes....

Just players who influence(d) me?

Pretty short list and I would add more "impressed me" than influenced...

T-Bone Walker
Robert Johnson
Freddie King
Dickey Betts
Toy Caldwell (Palm dampening)
Clapton
Magic Sam

I doubt anyone has been inspired by Dickey's slide playing, but I like his slide a lot. Obviously he's not trying to be Duane, he's swampier and not looking to blaze a solo in the same way. He's more traditional. But Dickey laid down some really tasty licks on Brothers & Sisters, Win Lose or Draw, and those acoustic sets in the 1990s.

tough one for me to answer.

I try to play rock drums with a jazz type approach. I don't have the chops or technique to be what I would call a good jazz drummer, although I try.
with that in mind, I would say
Danny Seraphine
Jaimo
Billy K
Art Blakey
Philly Joe

Absolutely different than Duane, simpler in style. Still copied some but found one lick in particular showed up everywhere, "California Blues" "Out to get me" "Sweet mama" "Crazy Love". Not a bad thing, just less to "steal"...

Number 1 hands down is Jimmy Page. After that...it's an equal influence of hundreds.

I tend to listen to all sorts genres of guitar playing. More rock of course, but enjoy from Angus to Leo Kottke,Blackmore to John Lee Hooker,Peter Green to Barney Kessel, and etc....

Cornell Dupree is the guitarist on that King Curtis live Fillmore album.

The guys who I've spent the most time copying licks by:

Mick Taylor (and KR)
Tommy Bolin
Jimmy Page
Ritchie Blackmore
Dickey & Duane

Alas, at best, I sound like Ron Wood on a bad night.

All awesome players... Being I was a perennial heavy hitter in my youth, gravitating towards Cobham was natural. I appreciate jazz for the signatures and usually incorporate techniques as a nuance in between other stuff.

Guitarist that fire me up:

Lately, Allen Collins and Steve Gaines.

The usual suspects:
Tony Iommi
Ritchie Blackmore
Robin Trower
Dave Alvin
Wes Montgomery (do the thumb thing now and then)

Similar to jszfunk's statement, I sound like StratDal. Works for me! (Good thing I have a day job too )

Cobham is amazing. I’ve studied Red Baron but not much else
Oddly enough I grew up on LZ but just recently started delving into Bonzo. He swings and rocks at the same time. He must have studied Elvin

Usually I would say Garcia, Allman/Betts, Rice, Martino. More like “caused me to take action” rather than “try to sound like” if that was even possible.

Since I was fortunate enough to attend Kimock’s clinic at Fur Peace Ranch last August that influence is large at the moment.

Also doing jazz lessons from non-guitar players, Tyner, Rollins and some Coltrane stuff from sax man Jake Homes.

My crappy sight reading is getting a little better, at least is was. Halfway thru cataract surgery, when the left eye gets done is anyones guess. In light of the big picture not a big deal just annoying.

Thought maybe I'd elaborate how my list influenced my playing.

Bonzo - technique and timing
Cobham - grip, playing in between, subtlety/finesse with power
Bozzio- mechanics, poly rhythms, and syncopation.
Aldridge - Double Kick, cross over quadruples, style
Coz- some groove, some pocket, and some swing.

Dig the diversity, what is your take on players like Claypool, Jaco, and Sheehan?

Keef
Bob Dylan
George Harrison
Jorma Kaukonen
Jerry.Garcia
Jimi Hendrix
Bert Jansch (major - single biggest influence of the last 20 years, the only musician I ever copped chops from, the others just bled into my playing and writing)
