Inspired by the little discussion in the LP Covers thread, I decided I'd start this. Post your favourites, whether it's for pure technical proficiency, or songwriting ability. I'm going to leave the term 'new' fairly broad. I just wanted to exclude the obvious 'legends', like Malmsteen, Slash and Satriani, because I'm just an ass like that. Mine are: AJ Minette (ex-The Human Abstract) Luke Hoskin/Tim Millar (Protest the Hero) Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At the Drive-In, The Mars Volta). Purely for songwriting ability. Oli Herbert (All That Remains) How long until someone says Herman Li?
