I searched, couldn't find anything

Just post bands/artists your playing style sounds similar to.

this isn't a post your influences thread, its more of like, post what the artists your playing style sounds like. sorry if I make it sound confusing, I'm bad with explaining things sometimes haha.

Mine would be

Darkest Hour
Destroy the Runner
I Killed the Prom Queen

With a little bit of Saosin/Anberlin type stuff.

Let it be known that I concur with everything this gentleman says, ever.

When I break out the Telecaster though, my influence is purely from AC/DC and Rush.

Rag Mop Do Do Duh DoDo Dedo Do!!!!!


if tom waits produced a soundgarden record thats what my band would sound like.
Send me off to bed forevermore.
Probably Zeppelin, Metallica, some Santana, Chilis, and (regrettably) a bit of Korn
Also, John Frusciante's solo work influences my acoustic playing a lot

Edit: and some Nirvana
Ozzy (so tony, zak, randy), then some stone sour, and finally the scorpions.
Megadeth/Anthrax rhythm stuff and Pantera-esque riffs and leads

I guess I'm kind of like a hippie. I'm anti-war, do drugs, and like communism.
Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

i love you more than words can express jean.

I saw Rick Astley in Quebec City, on April 10th 2009. Best day of my life!
Ozzy Osbourne (Specifically Zakk), Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Poison, and sometimes Eric Clapton. Plus, the tone that starts with the pick (the scratchy or popping attack) sounds like Paul Gilbert.

Generally, when I have my distortion on, it's medium heavy. Sometimes I turn on my Grunge pedal and give it some ballz. Plus, when I'm feeling bluesy, I turn on my deep sounding, lightly distorted, Bad Monkey OD pedal.

OOOOOR, I'll just turn all of mine on at once, ya know just for fun, and it sounds like sh*t.
A heavy dose of Guns N Roses, bit of ACDC, some Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Aerosmith and a sprinkle of Cheap Trick
iv had people compare me playin bluesy stuff to santana but i dont see it. i know the riffs i make up might as well be AcDc though

EDIT: although the other day i "made up" a riff and then discovered testament had already done it

Most of the stuff I write varies widely in terms of style. For example, I'm writing a song that's could be described as RHCP mixed with Tribal Tech right now, while I'm also writing a post-punk kind of thing. The last thing I wrote was a John Scofield-esque funk/fusion tune. I dabble in avant-garde metal, as well. I'm a stylistic chameleon, you could say.

My improv style is pretty varied, too.

my lead playing is most strongly influenced by Chuck Schuldiner and Kirk Hammett and i guess a bit of chris poland. People have told me i sound like Kirk Hammett without the Wah, the riffs i write sound a lot more like a mix of Children of Bodom, Celtic Frost, and Megadeth.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)
i forgot to add mercyful fates Michael Denner to that list, hes a huge influence on me and one of the reasons i got a flying V.

England is mine and it owes me a living
ac\dc usually but sometimes when i feel a bit more creative i try to write somethin like slash, nice blues sounding riffs/solos
Gary Moore, from my rhythym playing to my lead and even singing (slightly). And the funny thing is, i've been playing for 6 years and i only heard him just a year and a half ago.
I'd say my playing sounds a bit like King Diamond and Nile

bob dylan/zepplin/hendrix(if thats even possible)
In diesem Herz hab ich die Macht.

Fender MIM HSS Strat (Wine Red)
