I kinda doubt the majority of guitarists started just because of pop punk. I'd have to take a survey to be sure or something, but I don't think pop punk would necessarily win over all other genres.


Personally, it was just music in general. I just wanted to be able to make the sounds from the artists I liked, and guitar seemed a natural place to go. It's still much of the same, but now I like the fact that I can convey things through my own sounds too.

I had tried to learn guitar as a kid, but it never stuck, all i had was this crappy classical acoustic with nylon strings, didn't like it at all.

Then I hit 15 (i'm now 21) and the music I was listenin to inspired me to start to learn properly. I had alot of friends who played and they encouraged me to get into it. so I got a Squier Strat and started to learn. As I got better I got better gear (thank god, Squier = Shit!).

I wouldn't give up guitar for anything.

That is soooooo punk rock...


I wanted to know how to play "Whats this life for" by Creed. I saw a friend of mine play it perfectly. Thats pretty much what started it, I was about 14 or 15 I think.

You'll be suprised actually. A lot of the classic artists often get ignored by youngsters. That's what's great about pop punk rock: they influence so many young kids to play guitar. Of course, this is generally the case where I come from: the suburbs of London. Feel free to make a poll - i'd like to see the results.

I honestly have no idea. I was already into music (I play the clarinet since I'm seven) and I didn't discover metal or any kind of guitar oriented music until I started playing. I guess I just liked the instrument.

Pop punk didn't get me started, but they were the first songs I learned because Nu Metal was big at the time and I absolutely hated it.

Then of course you go into the past and find out some really good old stuff.

Chop Suey! - System of a down.


Once I found out about tabs, I got my acoustic and started learning on it.
Then, a couple of months later, I found out that I had an amp that my uncle gave me 7 years ago. Then, I found the gain switch.

Since then I have never stopped.
#18
My dad had an old guitar so I started playing and eventually I just wanted to learn seriously.
#19
Rock music. Then my cuz got a guitar and saw him play kickass after one year, so i got a guitar as whell.

Sweet..... did it go to 11?
#22
Probably the School Of Rock movie (with jack black).
And the Ramones and other classic pun bands were big inspiration back then.
Never liked any pop stuff.
#23
Guns and roses. The strange thing is, I actually can't listen to them at all, as I listened to them for 3 months non-stop. Still love Slash and Izzy, though.

some cool replies, mine, since your all dying to know was brian may, i was 17, and thought well everyone learns at like 14, so im like behind them all (stupid, but i dint wanna be destroyed by sum1 a lot younger than me) then i saw an interview with him n he sed he didnt learn till he was 17. so i picked one up n never looked back
#25
I saw this local band, Acid, perform a pimped-out version on Fade To Black (Metallica) & Alive (Pearl Jam); the guitarist being no more than fifteen! It was shocking! It was like watching a young Dimebag!

Nothing

But for the bass i guess it was just a genuine love to the instrument (i could play piano and flute back then), so i got one from friends (gotta love them) and fell inlove with it, since then i've never stopped.

When it comes down to it, everything relates back to getting women.

But if you mean a band, probably Metallica or Led Zeppelin.

Yep, thee are people in my year at school who actually make rap tracks. It makes me sick :barf

my brother went to india and left his telecaster at our house and since i was rather hendrix obsessed at the time i picked it up and started to learn to play.... after much jumping round the room of course but who hasn't done that at one time or another?
#36
My girlfriend's dad is very into guitars. He let me have a go on this acoustic and it just went from there really, though I'm far more into/better at electric.
#37
old punk records i discovered lying around the house, primarily XTC records... even though learning to play their songs was and still is very frustrating.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#38
This is pretty lame, but the reason i wanted to play guitar is Michael J. Fox. After The scene Back to the Future where Marty plays "Johnny B. Goode" and leaves them all stunned i realized then that that was my destiny.
#39
Metallica. I think it was the song Unforgiven and me wanting to play the intro that finally made up my mind.

My friend started guitar, and i saw how good he became, and he was selftaught, then i realized that i had a chance to learn myself.
