I have seen another John Gomm related thread, but what was not really discussed was the complexity and sheer difficulty of how he plays and what he does:

The technical skills and construction make this guy jaw dropping.

Techniques include: Simultaneously using 5 finger plucking, fret tapping as well as body tapping.
Add onto that the fact he sings.

Many guitarists have difficulty even doing one of the techniques-bad singers aside.

Nice! I wish I had incorporated that style as I began learning so long ago.
Reminded me of Justin King's 'drift' style:

Very similar; a couple other I dig are:

Laurence Juber


and of course: Ewan Dobson-Dobson is interesting, he mainly does 5 finger and fret tapping, but he gets effects from his timing that sound like electronic enhancement.

Thanks for posting, the guy has some amazing talents!

Very much reminds me of Tommy Emmanuel.

Sweet, Juber's playing is soothing and Dobson's is very cool(thought he might have been Bucket Head for a sec there). I love how so many styles(anti-styles too) can be applied to the guitar. I think I'll go work on my arpeggios now.

Thanks again for sharing...

These are my guitar gods.


Dimebag


Wylde


Satch

There are many others but this should be a good start. I agree that the guitarist in the OP is very good but not quite sure he has reached godlike status yet.

Wow that was sick! He really gets into it and I l dig the way he uses the entire guitar for sounds. I love the wear marks all over his guitar too.

peace

Awesome, was hoping people would post more people-realized later that the thread name was a little off of what I meant-was hoping for a long line of goodness.

My favorite guitar solo ever: goosebumps everytime he changes notation. Ladies n gentlemen, Steve Rothery

This is Tosin Abasi. He is an absolute inspiration, and I've had the extreme pleasure of seeing him play live with one of his bands. Custom 8 stringed guitar, and he makes playing look so effortless!

PLEASE LISTEN if you have never heard Ocean.
While I respect all of the guitarists mentioned so far, I've yet to listen to anything that GETS ME the way that John Butler's Ocean does. I feel like it puts me in the right mind to view the world around me, if that makes sense. He used to bask on the streets playing this; I can't imagine him having to play this more than once
to get off the streets. Seems like a great guy too. Listen to his other stuff for "common" form songs. He's a good singer as well. I posted one of my favorites below Ocean.

I love that. His timing is incredible...machine-like
