I used the searchbar, but it came up with nothing... (i admit i couldve searched harder though)

but i was wondering -as the title says - which song/artist inspired you all to pick up your guitars

mine was 'since i've been loving you' by led zeppelin

Kiss and Queen for the most part.


If I get to listen to Opeth and Cynic, then yeah. I'm damn proud of devolving.


Not like that. Opeth, Cynic, Nile, and Dream Theater are incredibly talented bands. Most of the people that say "I listen to metal" usually like Metallica, Pantera, and Cannibal Corpse. (At least i've noticed on this forum). While they have individually talented musicians, I don't consider the "band" as good.

Parents took me to a ZZ Top concert when I was 7 or 8. Watching Billy Gibbons up there in all his glory along with the fact that my dad plays guitar for a living eventually made me learn it.

Nirvana Unplugged in NY. The whole album.

Me too actually.

Then I got into Zeppelin and wanted to play electric, then Beatles made me refine my playing more. Pink Floyd made me experiment more. Neil Young made me want to be totally kick ass.
Whatever happened to sweet Jane?

Shut up. There's no such thing as "devolving" when it comes to music tastes.

Back in the 70s I got Deep Purple, Machine Head and Thin Lizzy JailBreak and knew I wanted to do that.

I see. I thought you were just saying it's all just shit. My mistake.

I sometimes just feel the need to learn a song, or tune. It started with Drive, by Incubus. I got my friend to teach me the chords, i was terrible at actually playing it of course. The first song i really put lots of effort into playing it well was Everlong by the foo's.

Waylon Jennings, Neil Young, Darius Rucker, and Clapton. I have been playing near four year now and these guy have inspire me to keep on playing and write.

when i was younger my mom played a lot of Clapton, BB King and SRV, i really got into the music, i initially wanted be a drummer and my brother wanted to play guitar but as time went on i got into a lot of my own tastes, Metallica, Black Sabbath and some of the more current stuff like Matchbox Twenty and Barenaked Ladies, me and my bro basically switched rolls in music and he became the drummer and i fell in love with guitar

Muse. The Origin of Symmetry album.

Years later, I'd still have Matt's babies. He is a genius.

Metallica, Maiden, Floyd.. One of the first riffs I learned back when all I had was my brothers bass was the intro to Iron Maiden's Phantom of the Opera. When I got my first guitar it was either Enter Sandman or Goodbye Blue Sky

Come back if you want to
And remember who you are

And everything must pass

To answer your question in the sig, he's mostly mechanical, bio-mechanical most likely, so he's going to have a different way to excrete.

Was noodling around on mine until I heard

Inferno (unleash the fire) by Symphony X. The first time I ever heard music like that and it blew me away. I started practicing properly then, I have got no where still...
