Veteran ;) I am getting close to 30 years of practice.
It depends ; what I like in the guitar is that it is very versatile. I sometimes like to listen to soft, accoustic Jazz guitar and sometimes to Jimi Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan!
My favorite musician is probably Django Reinhardt, and it should be every guitarist's choice ! After that, there are guys like George Benson who can still impress me... I love Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass and many others. In a more electric style, I love Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. But I also like not-so-famous guitarists (and who are still alive)... like Wayne Krantz for instance !
I am a computer guy who sometimes thinks he should have been a musician... and now that I am past 40, I am trying to palliate to that decision ! I started playing the piano at the age of 6 and the guitar at 13.
