Bands that make you wanna just pick up the guitar! (or put it down...)

Hey all!
I've realized I've been listening to the same bands over and over and thought i needed some inspiration. I listen to Satriani, Steve Vai, and who I recently discovered, Guthrie Govan! Im telling you guys, give him a listen and you will know why i like him so much! Who would you guys recommend? I obviously like instrumentals, but thats not necessary! And who has been inspiring you?

(To the mods, sorry if this is in the wrong section, i thought it should go here since we arent discussing bands, but recommending them!)

This thread is full of fail.

I have also been a fan of Guthrie Govan. His phrasing is excellent, everytime I try to imitate him I put down my guitar. I think he is the best guitar player in our generation.

Someone who honestly makes me pick my guitar up is Buckethead. The fact that he's experimental as well is also very inspiring.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

First 3 answers are from typical pit noobs.


Not really...Taylor Swift, The Jonas Brothers and Lil Wayne are all so bad that it makes you wanna pick up a guitar just to prove to yourself that youre better.

I know cliched, but Watching the videos of Jimmy Hendrix playing at Woodstock makes me want to pick my guitar every time.. tbh, listening/watching most of the stuff from Woodstock makes me want to pick up my guitar.

I must say i agree with you, on BOTH accounts! I shouldve known these were the responses id get! And i know what you mean with guthrie, he makes me wanna pick it up, and then put it back right down after trying a song!

My friend's crappy band.

People only "like" them because they're popular.

She has better tits than me, certainly.
And probably is better at guitar, too.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.

But really...Every time I watch a Porcupine Tree video, I just feel like picking up the bass and playing Open Car.

No. Certainly not.

There is nothing about them to be jealous about.

I'm sorry, but her guitar is bedazzled... She could shred faster than MAB, Paul Gilbert and Yngwie put together and I still would have no respect for her.
