CC Deville, Eddie Van Halen, Angus Young, Slash, and Allen Collins were probably the main ones who inspired me. My dad always likes to play the stuff he listened to in the 80s on the radio, when he saw I liked it, he just got me a guitar hoping that I would be playing his favorite songs all the time. Nowadays...not so much, and he still doesn't grasp the fact that there is SOOO much more to guitar than cover songs.

I actually originally wanted to play drums for the longest time, but my parents didnt want to get me a set, so scratch that idea. Well one day I was at my friends house (back in gradde like 5 or something tongue.gif ) and he played Back in Black on an acoustic and i was astonished (I was a big ACDC fan) The next day I bought a guitar and haven't looked back on it. smile.gif

Hendrix, Clapton, Hammett, Slash, Page, Richards/May, Angus Young and Niel Young are my main reasons for playing the guitar. smile.gif

But lately Lavendell, Wallimann and Muris, and the rest of the GMC instructor team joined their ranks. biggrin.gif

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

When I practice I have the album 'Get Out Of My Yard' by Paul Gilbert on my desk.

On the front he looks really grumpy and disapproving, so whenever I start to get bored or tired I look at the picture and think: 'Paul is still not happy with my playing'.

[font=Arial][size=3]Jimmy Page, EVH, Jimi Hendrix, Herman Li, Yngwie Malmsteen, Kirk Hammett (before the black album), and Robby Krieger all inspired me to play guitar better.

I like BB King, SRV, and Steve Miller. My favorite axe man is James Young of the band STYX. Check out this video of him in action.

Mine is kind of weird.
When I was 14, I saw this movie "Eddie and the Cruisers 2"
I watched that movie about 50 times total. It totally inspired me to play.
I'd be curiosu to know if anyone else saw it. It's an old late 80s movie...


I remember that one. Heck I remember the first Eddie and the Cruisers. "On the Dark Side" was a great radio play hit in the 80's by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band.

I've been inspired by many different guitarists over the years, but if I remember correctly, I think it started when I was around 13, and I saw the video for "Yankee Rose" by David Lee Roth (featuring Mr. Steve Vai on guitar), and was totally amazed...got my first electric guitar soon afterwards. smile.gif

I'd have to say the first time I ever saw Wake Up Dead and Peace Sells on the old Headbangers Ball, (It wasn't even called that back then, I think) I immediately got an insatiable desire to learn to play guitar. So I blame Dave Mustaine.

I suppose the first person who inspired me was Richie Blackmore I still think his playing with Deep Purple was superb.

Other guitarists that I like and would love to emulate are Dave Gilmour, Steve Lukather, Mark Knopfler, Santanna, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Alex Lifeson and Neal Schon

i remember about 2 years ago i was only a guitar n00b and didnt know much at all, i listened to Red Hot Chili Peppers often and saw like one video of john frusciante, playing on a gretch jazz guitar, so i thought "im gonna get one of those and start learning guitar!" then as my knowledge grew in the guitar world, found out loads of things, and somehow got myself into satch and vai and co. lol strange, but yes, i am inspired by a former 24/7 drug abuser tongue.gif anyhow hes reformed a long time ago now and is a healthy person again smile.gif except all his teeth had to be pulled out and replaced with fake ones coz he got horric gum diseas that wouldve killed him

i'v always wanted to learn since i was little but i never really had the patience and then when my father gifted away his acoustic the thought to try again hit me. But as far as inspiration i'd have to say Slash and Eric Clapton are the biggest ones.
