Which band inspired you to rock scociety and work your little fingers to the bone?!
The first band that really got me into rock was Van Halen. First song I heard was "Unchained" and it blew me away. I was then obssesed with VH for like 2 years. Now I listen to diff. things like classic rock, shred, and progressive mainly.

well, it was a combination of bands. first there was in flames, then came pink floyd, led zeppelin, and disturbed. i remember listening to down with the sickness thinking, "wow, i want a guitar." then i heard the quiet place by in flames a bit later and im like "ok, im going to start to play guitar." led and pink floyd just helped it along the way.

I think it was mainly Green Day and Offspring that made me want to pick up a guitar (yes, I do know how painfully easy that stuff is) but atm I'm getting inspiration from bands like Tool, APC and Incubus.

METALLICA!!!!!!! They changed my life.I couldnt believe somebody could make such awesome music.The end solo in fad to black gets me everytime. My friend then sent me an MP3 of him playing fade to black and it rocked.Then i just knew it was time for me to take that next step....so i did. Decided to teach myself master of puppets after about a month....I was so ****.I still practice it everyday and it sounds way better than it did when i first started (not perfect though).Got an electric last year in November and have been playing a couple of hours everyday for a year.

When you pick up the guitar for the first time, weeks go by where you think you can never get better so you give up.If you press on then you hit a point where you cant imagine your life without the axe.

Metallica got me into it, but i also get inspired by Nirvana,Guns N Roses, Velvet Revolver (mainly because of Slash),Dream Theater (Petrucci is a god),Incubus etc

I love the six string :-)
