Cool biggrin.gif...


I find it really interesting to see just HOW personal music is, and how unique each one's influences are -- even if there are similarities.

I find I like the styles that can bring a lot of emotion out in me... I guess the tone would be sadder, darker, more powerful styles if I think about it... hehe...


Guess in a way I'm still discovering myself musically (like it's there... but I'm only seeing it now)

Interesting...I was just thinking about a thread like this and thought I'd see if there was one already. I'm surprised it's not more populated. huh.gif

Ironically, there is a big difference between (1) my influences and (2) the guitarists that I like.

In (1) is the music I like and the style I want to make:

Nightwish
Delain
Within Temptation
Sirenia
Lacuna Coil
Draconian

But I would struggle to point out any memorable (to me) guitar playing from these bands. Sure - the guitarists are great, but they tend to fit more into an overall musical landscape - epic and symphonic - rather than being at the forefront.

But in (2) are the great players I love to listen to, but I couldn't say they strongly influence my own playing or direction:

Mark Knopfler
Tommy Emmanuel
Marty Friedman
Kirk Hammett
Joe Satriani
Yngwie Malmsteen
Slash (G'n'R era)

The only real crossover there would be Yngwie, because I do love and am influenced by the neo-classical feel and I'm grateful for the tutorials that Marcus Lavendell has available here!
