Hi everybody yesterday I was sitting and thinking about music styles and what has inspired me over the years,there is so many great bands and players out there but not so many has really got to me as a few.

My first music experience that I have was a music company that sell record by postorder 1 record a month, and I saw this cool record called One More From The Road it was Lynyrd Skynyrd I bought it becouse it look cool.
Then I went to record store and heard Higway Star that really got to me I still love that song.

Next was a friends brother to me that had Led Zeppelin and Black sabbath record oboy man the riffs Toni is the king.

Then came kiss and I got poster all over my room and my father said w.t.f is that you call that music, I love them still.

After that it was Status Quo,Hurriganes,Rush and euruption with van Halen we played it over and over in school.
Then came Metallica and change my world,so fast so god I got an eargasm and those chugging guitars holy smoke.
Not since Metallica I have had that felling I got since I heard them the first time it was unlike anything else.

Then I started to play guitar and start listnining to Jimi Hendrix,Satriani,Vinnie Moore,Steve vai,Ritche kotzen.
Then it was Souther style again with Pantera what force what power,not since Metalica had I heard this.

That is my influences whats yours(mine nu is GMC so many great guitar player I can just sitt and look a lessons for days)

I've always been split between metal head and 70's rock as my main influence, but with metal Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica, Testament, and Black Sabbath have been my biggest influences. While I also really got into the melodic metal, and In Flames has influenced me as well.

Classic Rock:
I've always love Led Zeppelin so Jimmy Page is a huge influence, because he brought so many elements to hard rock. Because of Jimmy I got into some blues music, and some funk music. It just makes you appreciate the ability to bring any influences you have into your playing, allowing you to be more creative. Aside from Zeppelin, Pink Floyd is my #2 from that era. David Gilmour was great because he had such a soulful sound to his playing, which is probably why I love Slash, and Santana. Also some other bands that i was into were Boston, Cream, Hendrix, CCR, The Guess Who, The Doors, The Who, ZZ Top, Rush, Queen.

I'm not too deep into blues, but love a few blues players, and something about the music flows with me, BB King, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn. Can't get enough of it.

I grew up in the 90's so bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Rage Against The Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, Chili Peppers.
