I didn't like Acoustic Sketches at all the first time I heard it. But, I wasn't a fan of Phil's at the time and I'm more of an electric guitar rocker. I fell in love with 220, the electric rock instrumental, right away. Premium Jams is sort of the electric version of Acoustic Sketches in that it's all just jam sessions from the 220 and Crimson & Blue sessions. For his best, IMO, electric work (non-instrumental), I'd check out Glass Harp Strings Attached.

I'll echo Burlap. There's some great pickers there. But I'm not familiar enough with the members to pick out who's who.

My favorite Christian guitarists:

Billy Corgan (formerly of The Smashing Pumpkins, now with Zwan; I dug up an interview that seemed to imply that he was Christian/catholic)
Pete Stewart (formerly of Grammatrain, now with The Accident Experiment)
Marcos Curiel (formerly of POD, now with The Accident Experiment)
Eric Weaver (of 12 Stones)
Pete Leoffler (of Chevelle; not a Christian band, but he's rumored to be a Christian)
John Petrucci (of Dream Theater; again rumored to be a Christian)

Tremonti is pretty good technically, but as has been pointed out, he's not a Christian (last I heard he was Universalist).

They never intended to be a Christian band. They accidentally signed to a Christian label for their first release and were mistakenly labeled a Christian band because of it.

Greg Togawa (Slick Shoes)
Mark Tremonti (Creed)*
Marcos Curiel (P.O.D.)

*note: Creed says they aren't a christian band, so they must not be a christian band. I like their guitarist anyways.

I don't listen to enough Christian to have a definitive list, but 3 I respect are...

Keaggy
Crowder (tries too hard to rip off Dave Matthews, though)
Ed Cash

Tommy Walker.... This dude can wail. praise and worship song writer, But this guy can play that ax. I've seen him play lots of times and he is every bit as good as some of the others already mentioned. Just not as well known. you can check him out at getdownministries.com

SCC and Stu G (Stuart Garrard, Delirious) are my favorites right now. Especially Garrard, though,... I love some of the stuff he does.

The interview I was referring to is this one.

Quote:
You sing a lot about God and your faith. In "Lyric," for example, you sing: "Here comes my faith to carry me on."

Well, I think faith is everything. Faith is the will to get out of bed, to write songs.

Your faith is also defined by the album's name, Mary Star of the Sea.

I just wanted to give a what do you call it, a shout-out? I just wanted to give a shout-out (laughs) to the Creator, the Mother of the Universe. It's pretty Christian. It's Christian theology.
I did find it odd that he referred to Mary as the "Mother of the Universe." That's what led me to believe that perhaps he was catholic. But then again, maybe he acknowledges Mary as a literal god....

Here's another article that may be of interest.

Hmm, very interesting. I had heard rumors of this, as well. I wouldn't say this really makes anything clear one way or another, but I defnitely will be looking for Corgan's statements of faith in the future.
