funnily enough Guitar Hero III made me wanna start learning guitar and its also influencing some of my friends to start playing
Ah, Mike McCready, good dude to want to be like.

John Frusciante inspired me to want to play guitar. I wanted to play bass for the longest time until RHCP's By The Way came out, and then I changed my mind.

Lead guitarist in Pearl Jam

my two closest friends play guitar and they always played me stuff and taught me about the instrument. So, actually, once I got my guitar I already knew a lot about it and how to play it just from listening to my friends talk about it.

Then I stopped using it as a bongo in year 10 (after 7/8 years of nothing) because I found the works of a certain Mr Saul Hudson.

i wanna see a clip of a recto buying some groceries.
A cousin of mine moved away from the country and left me his amazing cd collection which included Metallica, Gn'R, AC/DC, Nirvana, Slipknot, Korn and then just about every other band that exists and I went like I gotta learn how to play guitar, spent 2 years on the acoustic and last year got my first electric.

We have a winner.
kiss was the biggest influence for me. As soon as i heard shock me ace frehley blew me away.
To deny our own impulses, is to deny the very thing that makes us human.
i first wanted to play guitar because i love music so much that i wanted to be able to recreate some of it, and i liked Guitar the most out of the other instruments typically found in a band so i bought a guitar.

- Epiphone Les Paul
- SX Strat (w/ Fender Vintage Noisless Pickups, TBX Control, and an active circuit board for +25dB mid boost)
- Marshall DSL40C

That's true for loads of people. Frehely wasn't exactly groundbreaking but jeez, he must have been doing something right.

I was just looking for something eqpressive, 'cause I'm a crap artist, mind-numbingly average poet, can't sing, can't dance, and dear god I am NOT co-ordinated enough to drum. And the piano was so BORING at the time. And then I saw a video of Van Halen playing You Really Got Me, which had been such a boring song before. It was like, I could do that.
Countless hours of listening to early 90s radio, Def Leppard and my Dad's old albums.

Then I picked up a guitar 7 years later.

Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

Tom Delonge.

He is by far one of the worst players professionally out there, but hey, everyone has a hero.
Cream, Hendrix, and Santana were the start, but Albert King, Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, Mississippi Fred Mc Dowell and other blues players hooked into the music and wanting to play. Listening to Robert Johnson, who sounds like a battery of guitars, still blows my mind.
