  8. Dave Larue is a good one. I also like Adam Nitti and I think I'd give him a little edge over Dave Larue, IMO at least.
  9. Stu Hamm for me, he can do all the flashy tapping and slapping but still know when to hold down a groove.

    Probably Pino, or maybe Dave Swift.

    Chris Wood is great but doesn't show off his versatility the way Pino does. IMO Pino's adapting to every situation and pretty much sounding like different players at times makes him an auto-win for this thread.

    Have you heard Chris' folk band? He plays some pretty amazing stuff with that group.

    I would also agree with Pino, he seems like he can do everything.
