Steve Howe of Yes is a great example of a player who incorporates intervallic string skips into his style. Check out the first few minutes of Close To The Edge and his soloing at the end of Wonderous Stories. Steve has an immense catalogue to choose from, but these are a great place to start. To hear a rockier context, try Nuno Bettencourt, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Morse or Steve Vai, where you will also pick up plenty of ideas.
Steve Vai uses string skipping as an integral part of his playing style
