    Who's your favourite Australian guitarist?

    Just wondering if the rest of the world has heard of some of the great guitar players from Australia.

    Cheers.

    I really like James Muller and Peter O'Mara (the latter being a very talented instructor as well).
    But since they play jazz, they are probably not well known

    I keed, I keed. The riff on INXS's "The One Thing" was pretty bitchin'. But that's the extent of my knowledge of Aussie guitarists.

    Ross Hannaford was a cool player, especially with Diana Kiss back in the day. Monday night Espy front bar.....it became a tradition.

    I like Doug de Vries' playing when he's "on" too......has a great trio with his wife on vocals.
