Sorry if this has been done before, I had a look at the "suggest me a song" thread but that doesn't really have anything to do with what I want.

I'm looking for some new music, to listen to and to play, and I don't really know where to start. I was hoping that you guys could just recommend me any songs that you like or are listening to ATM. Genre isn't an issue, any metal, funk, rock, jazz, blues, country rock, jazz, blues, country... Preferrably stuff with interesting guitar parts. Maybe a song or artist that inspired you to pick up guitar. It doesn't have to be just a song though, maybe a band in general or an album?

Thanks for your time
Liquid Tension Experiment
Anything by Nobuo Uematsu
Meshuggah (some of the most rhythmically interesting metal out there)
Dream Theater
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
