Hey guys I was sitting around the other day thinkin bout why I started playing guitar and basically came up with the fact that you look so freakin cool doin it AND that I wanted to be able to play like my favourite guitarists................


and I'm talkin bout the FIRST albums that made you wanna play cos if this list was my top ten all time albums now it would probably be totally different.


so what did you listen to that made you wanna play guitar?

My top ten is as follows:-

1) Rust in Peace- Megadeth
2) II - Led Zeppelin
3) Apetite for Destruction- Guns 'n' Roses
4) Nevermind- Nirvana
5) Bon Jovi- Keep the faith (before you laugh listen to the solo in Dry County AWESOME!)
6) Master of Puppets - Metallica
7) Best of Fleetwood Mac (with Peter Green) - Fleetwood Mac
8) Stoosh- Skunk Anansie
9) All right now- Free
10) Collection- Creedance Clearwater Revival

edit: misread question. answer is, none. nobody influenced me. last year in september I sold a night vision device for $2,000. I had reached the point in life where it was going to be either a Motorcycle, a Younger Woman, or an Amplifier. We all reach this stage eventually, no matter how hard we try to avoid it. As I could not get very much in the way of quality in either a Motorcycle or a Younger woman for $2,000, I opted for amplifier and guitar.

oooo, cool topic, I'd have to say, in no particular order:

1. The Offspring - Conspiracy of One
2. Strung Out - Exile In Oblivion
3. Bad Religion - The Empire Strikes First
4. Afi - Sing The Sorrow
5. Less Than Jake - Anthem
6. Streetlight Manifesto - Everything Went Numb
7. Mad Caddies - Just One More
8. Lagwagon - Lagwagon
9. NoFX- Punk In Drublic
10. Blink 182 - Enema Of The State (come on! wink.gif)

Okay, the blink album ain't guitaristically AMAZING, but the songs are catchy! (mind, I was 11/12 years old when I started smile.gif) Made me want to write cool songs, which I still haven't got the hang of.... smile.gif

Like fkalich, I was not influenced into Guitar by any bands etc. I just really wanted something technical to sink my teeth into, to acheive excellence a to have fun so the guitar fitted perfectly smile.gif

Hard to name actual albums.. I don´t know what got me in to guitar except the fact that I found one at home. But I can name some bands/albums that I did listen to a lot! So in somewhat of an historical order...


Rage against the machine - bulls on parade
(my first metalsounding album ever, before that.. All eurodisco.
Remember buying it after listening to it in the store with those headphones already plugged in with the weeks 4 top records or something.. Sounded brutal.. )

Megadeth - Rust in peace
I remember buying this at "nice price" sale having no idea what it really was. But I liked the guitar riffs. Sounded just awsome.

Metallica - any album availible at the time
I was already warmed up with some metal but these guys made me "all into metal" for quite some time.

Nirvana - unplugged mtv record..
This were the riff I started playing. Mainly because it´s a good record, it was my sisters and I could actually play them. Simply and nice!

Millencolin - Life on a plate
Listened to this so many times... Borrowed from the library over and over again.. tongue.gif Emotional lyrics sort of. Energizing sound.

Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising force
This made me want to play fast =) Awsome record btw.

Blind Guardian - Somewhere far beyond (and all other records later on)
I remember having this record for a year or so. Never really got hooked. And then when putting it on in a very long time I just was blown away. Bought them all =) Think I apreciated it more when I had started playing guitar.

So much influence by other bands but I think this were the ones going over and over again when I was young..

The only album that really inspired me to pick up the guitar was Judas Priest's British Steel. It really blew me away at the time.

Ooh, fun.

When I was a young lad, it was when the alternative movement was really getting mainstream, SO...

Frog Stomp - Silverchair
Dookie - Green Day
Smash - Offspring
Load - Metallica (I was young and it had jsut come out, I worked backwards through their catalog, I dont' touch it at all now tongue.gif)
Superunknown - Soundgarden

Then I grew up, went to college, needed a hobby that didn't involve bars and loose women to entertain myself during the week. Then there it was, sitting on the shelf at target on my lunch break. The name was so ridiculous I immediately knew I had to buy it. The font reminded me of the one other band I knew that played Power Metal (at the time, was Freedom Call), DragonForce - Inhuman Rampage. I immediately took the CD to the front and bought it and popped it in and was floored.

So for my triumphant return to the 6 string.

Inhuman Rampage - DragonForce
Surfing with the Alien - Joe Satriani
The Odyssey - Symphony X
Kill Em All - Metallica
And, as cheesy as the CD is: City of Evil - Avenged Sevenfold
