i heard smells like teen spirit on the radio for the first time and i was like wow i wish i could play that..get a croud jumping and be able to generate that kind of energy..but i thought guitar was like impossible so i didnt try to learn it and i didnt know about tabs. my cuzin then got an acoustic and we were trying to figure out how to play 7 nation army (lol) and i relised it wasnt that impossible to play a guitar so i picked up my dads when i got hoem and figured it out after a while

Well... Im really embarased to say this, but pre- guitar, I listened to Rap (haha) So nothing or noone inspired me... i just kind of picked it up.

bryan adams inspired me to like rock, and van halen inspired me to play rock.

I listen to more metal stuff (Metallica, DT, etc.), classic rock (Ozzy, Led Zeppelin, The Who, that stuff) as well as any guitar virtuosos (Satch, Vai, Van Halen still, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc.) and the occaisional power pop band. (no matter what else I listen to, I will always enjoy Weezer) now, but I still like those 2 bands. Special place in my memory...

led zepellin got me into tryin to play at a virtuoso level (which i'm gettin close to, but still miles away from. sweepin is a biatch).
rage against the machine was my original obsession around 6-7 years ago, but i've been playing for 12. lets just say, the first few years werent very productive

rockergurl09
05-31-2006, 10:37 AM
No band got me interested to rock.
It was t3h h0tt female 40 year old groupies.
I like 'em experienced.

well, it's gonna take a long time before you get groupies. Some stupid excuse.

"It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll!" - AC/DC

06-01-2006, 09:44 AM
Sum 41, Rage Against the Machine and Linkin Park

Ac!Dc
06-01-2006, 02:22 PM
for me the reason i picked up a guitar is all because of the killer riffs and unmistakable sound that acdc produced for so many years.heck i'm only 14 and i've never even seen them live and they still influence me

06-01-2006, 02:25 PM
the two biggest inspirations on my guitar playing have been Daron Malakian of System Of A Down for his melodic and heavy riffs, and Bryan Adams for being the greatest Canadaian guitarist alive a living legend

mickmarsfreak69
06-01-2006, 06:36 PM
so many bands inspired me... the top 5 in order are;
1. Motley Crue (Mick Mars is so god dammed amazing at guitar and the fact that he has spondlosing ankylosis and is still rockin at 50 impresses me and makes me wanna be jsut like him and how he just wants to play guitar in Motley Crue and everyone else in the band just gives it their all)
2. Metallica (James Hetfield, Kirk Hammet, Lars Ulrich, Cliff Burton, Jason Newstead, and I forget the other guys name since I dont listen to the new Metallica, they all showed me what music and playing means)
3. Ozzy Osbourne (Randy Rhoads, Zakk Wylde, Randy Costello, Jake E. Lee and of course Ozzy himself inspired me so much, especially Randy Rhoads how he wanted to just play his music and nothing else)
4. Pantera (Three words.... Dimebag Darrell Abbot)(R.I.P. we wont forget you)
5. Disturbed (Dan Donegan is amazing at guitar and David Draiman has damn near the best voice Ive ever heard and Mike Wengren is awsome at drumming!)

Originaly AC/DC during the shift into Classic Rock for me, but evolved into Motley Crue and Aerosmith.

I was watching a snowboarding video and there was a Mad Caddies song in the opening credits and thought i was so cool. so i begged my parents for a guitar. after that i lost intrest then i heard the alterbridge song "open your eyes" on the radio and the solo blew me away and now im rocking again and dont plan on losing intrest again.

I wanted to play guitar when I heard led zeppelin, but I thought it would be impossible to play as good as Jimmy Page. What got me started was Nirvana.

God I feel so OLD after reading through this thread....I'm so old school real lead breaks and killer dueling guitars (sorry kidz, slammin' 6 power chords real fast is NOT lead guitar...)

Actually, aside from the Stones and Duane Allman, it was actually a band I saw at a local teen center in 1968...bunch of punk kids who stuck with it til they FINALLY got signed by Arista records in 1975...the Outlaws.

Hughie Thomasson & Billy Jones' dueling guitars and intense vocal harmonies...man I wish I could play like that. The Spark and the Flame.

RIP Billy

They inspired me but I never got off my ass to do anything about it til I saw a friend of mine from my high school guitar class makin' young boys stare openmouthed at his guitar playing and and girls stop talkin' and WATCH the band...not big stars (YET) just a band from Orlando, The Wynn Brothers Band. (see em on myspace). Thanks Uncle Leroy--you kick ass!

Greenday. I'd had a guitar for a couple of months but not touched it cos I had no idea what to do with it. I saw the american idiot video and thought guitar was cool so i spent the next month learning to play and the next three learning the american idiot album. I listen continuously to chilis now though as the riffs are so cool.

because of their stage presence thru their music.

Little different than most peoples':

I first got my acoustic guitar because of Neutral Milk Hotel and their album In The Aeroplane Over The Sea.

I got my electric 4 months later becuase of (odd combo) Issac Brock of Modest Mouse and Jimi Hendrix

I didn't get into Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, or Led Zeppelin until after I bought my electric, before that I was into more acoustic stuff, like Cat Stevens and Bob Dylan, also reasons why I first got my acoustic

So there you go.

itson!
07-14-2006, 11:32 PM
Led Zeppelin was what made me want to play guitar after hearing "Black Dog" i knew i must try this instrument. then Korn and SOAD got me to get off my ass and play heavier stuff. Metallica and all those others never really influenced me to play. to me it all sounded the same....well only metallica. they always sound the same. i never was a huge fan of metallica. all the songs either A.Sound like the same chord progression x10000 or B.Just plain suck

The first band that made me want to play guitar was Blue Oyster Cult, but long before that Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler made me buy a bass guitar, and I'd still rather play that.

I got my electric 4 months later becuase of (odd combo) Issac Brock of Modest Mouse and Jimi Hendrix

07-19-2006, 12:23 PM
well, in 2003 i remember getting the maiden greatest hits. But i was like ill neva be able to play like that. Then i got sabbaths first album, but i found out iommi had no fingertips and that made me annoyed. Then i saw the darkness. Then i got a guitar, but didnt play it much. Then i went to a local jam night and thought, i wanna do that. Now i can play fairly well. So the lesson here is: The Darkness and local jamnights ROCK

I Walk Alone
07-19-2006, 01:17 PM
I know it's sad, but Linkin Park made me want to start playing guitar. After my teacher started recommending music to me, then I got into the classics like AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zepp, but the artist who's kept me motivated to keep playing is Slash. He's stuck to the real path of rock and metal and showed me what it takes to make it in music and what rewards you get in the end.

FreeBird09
07-20-2006, 07:14 PM
well a long time when i was getting into older bands, i picked up my parents aerosmith greatest hits and i listend to both cds and listening to joe perry and brad witford just inspired me to pick up a guitar. joe perry has been my idol ever since then.
some of steven tylers harmonica solos also triggered me to start playing harmonica too.

Aerosmith was my first obsession in rock, but I didn't really progress untill I discovered Zeppelin and from there I started listening to all the rock bands that have made me the person (musically) who I am today.

Three words: Stiff Little Fingers. They are an awesome awesome band. Their music might not consist of 3 minute guitar solos or ridiculous amounts of effects but they know how to rock and they do it (Even at the age of 50 something). They are the ultimate live band. Not only is their music an inspiratioinal collection of punk rock classics but their beliefs and the stuff they have the balls to sing about is what makes them different. That is rock. That is why I was inspired to rock.

Also, contrary to popular belief, Green Day do rock. Their old material definitely more so than the new stuff but they have energy and style (musically that is, please drop the eyeliner Billie). The same issue pops up here as with Fingers; they have the balls to sing about whatever they want.

Blend these two together then you have the reason i wanna rock. Amazing lyrics and musical equality within the band from Fingers, and f*cking endless madness and energy from Green Day. That is what inspires me.

ROCK!

Well, if I had to pick a particular moment that inspired me to play guitar, it's something that is probably dissimilar to most people's moments that inspired them to pick up an axe and melt faces (a lot of people say Metallica and Van Halen - standard "revolutionary" bands). However, the moment I found myself really wanting to play guitar was my first time hearing the chorus of Tool's "You Lied" - nothing like those big booming dropped-D power chords to make you want to rock.

:devil: Guns N' Roses :devil: !! I was browsing in my Dad's CDs when I was just 10 and saw this CD of Guns N' Roses (I thought this is some kind of Enigma Sh*t, although I like them and respect them and no offence to all) and the CD was one of the CDs "Use your Illusion II".. and there was "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" on track 4, I thought to myself this is some crapy old country song.. (little did I know that it will change my life, when the track was over). I heard it and said " Oh My God, what a band" and from that day onwards I dedicated my life to Rock, although I started playing guitar earlier, Guns N' Roses inspired me to play rock, i've been playing for 6 years now and had several bands and success and now I'm 16.

Sorry for the long story lol

RHCP for me; my cousin wanted to see if I could easily transition from Arabic Lute to guitar, so he's like "Here- play this song, it's called Can't Stop." Within a few mins, I was kinda playing it and was thinking to myself "holy crap I can actually do this." The rest is history.

Iread his biography and was blown away...I also like Jim morrison...His lyrics just mean something to me...(i dunno..?) ...and Kurt Cobain...I'm currently in the middle of reading his biography..(406 pages long) =\ .... His story seems just like how i am now..so he's really keeping me going...PeaceOut ...R.I.P Jim morrison, Jerry Garcia, and Kurt Cobain. True Poets.

But way back in the day I used to want to play something like 28 Days, the Living End, Grinspoon, Silverchair etc. They were my idols.
Wow, my rebelish young days :'D

From the top list, though, songs like Overkill by Colin Hay, The General by Dispatch, Fortunate Son by CCR, Of course, More than a Feeling by Boston, great ****ing song, The Animals: House of the Rising Sun, much? Haha. Don't Stop Beleivin' and Wheel in the Sky by Journey.

But, to top it all off, THE song that got me into guitar, however simple that song is, would HAVE to be Live's "Lightning Crashes".

Well, I remember as a kid I would occasionally pick up some of my parent's new cd's. At the time I listened occasionally to pop etc. (whatever was on the radio really).

And one day my dad bought an Ozzy Osbourne live album. I knew he had a song called Crazy Train, so I skipped to that on my little personnal CD player.

And when that chorus riff hit, it blew my head ****ing clean off. I had never heard music like that, with the whole band merging as one to create this massive, powerful sound. I didn't know Ozzy only had Zakk on guitar, and if you had told me there were 500 men playing that rifff at the same I would have believed you.

Finally my mom bot me one for my birthday, and I started just playing like GReenday and Sum 41, but as I got better, I got more into technically proficient stuff, but I still love the old school punk rock!

A band that started up around my immediate area (Dead Poetic) inspired me to start playing the guitar about 6 years ago. But sitting in my old living room with my dad when I was like 9, listening to Muddy Waters or B.B. King with him really inspired my entire love for music.

Of course, I've branched far out from those two artists and the entire Blues genre in general, but blues is what started it all for me. :D

System of a down...dont really like them as much anymore but, for a numetal band, they got me into real metal.

I studied the guitar before I really got into playing it, but my practicing then wasn't consistent. When my friends made me listen to My Chemical Romance and taught me how to play it, I guess I really got into it, then, from MCR, I found AC/DC, Queen, Judas Priest, Hendrix, Zepplin and their like...

I started in the punk tradition as a form of release and expression, and I loved the ethics and ideology behind the punk movement, thats what really attracted me to music. Classic and new punk was my inspiration.

Now a Days I play more rock, I've taken lessons and progressed very far as a musician. Many different things inspire me, although the two bands that kind of gave me an epiphony were: Motion City Soundtrack (as far as lyrical writing) and My Chemical Romance. Now before I get flamed, if you havn't seen an MCR show then you don't know what you're missing, these guys put on a great show, and Ray Toro really knows how to play guitar. If you don't believe me listen to the song "Thank you for the Venom." One of the things that keeps me playing, is that I wanna get to that level.
