Guns N Roses - Slash - You Could Be Mine - Terminator 2 Movie

That's what got me. Use Your Illusion 2 was also the first CD I ever got. Talked my mom into it despite the parental warnings. Really though, that song along with that movie at the time was over the top and Slash, well, to say I wanted to be him is an understatement.

Death band and Chuck Schuldiner's playing made me to pick up guitar.
He is still guitar icon for me, despite the fact, that I'm not listening to metal a lot now smile.gif

Oh oh! I remember that song and the video, maaaan, I was in the 7th grade and had a Sony Walkman laugh.gif Each day when going to school and when coming back, I was listening to a tape with Guns N Roses, which I had back then. 'You could be mine' gave a lot of power to the fat little boy I was back then, especially when he had to go through the excruciating ordeal of having to talk to...A GIRL laugh.gif

biggrin.gif Well, you are not the only one - that tape was made by using the tape recorder to get it from the radio - that meant I was hunting for it for a very large amount of time on a radio station which I knew it was broadcasting it pretty often back then.

It was hearing A Voice In The Dark from Blind Guardian. Some awsome rhythm work there smile.gif

It didn't take me two months from there to get a guitar and start practicing.

I've had an acoustic Guitar knocking around for years and always wanted to learn, but always got discouraged when I was younger by how difficult it was!

A few years ago I "obtained" a cheap ass Ukulele when my mum got divorced and started teaching myself to play. Long story short I kinda got stuck in a rut with my Ukulele playing and figured it was time to finally tackle Guitar! ( that and I stumbled across GMC and was amazed by the quality of the videos biggrin.gif )

It's been about a week since I purchased my guitar and I don't think I've put it down since tongue.gif

Yes, yes smile.gif I am curious to know what sparked your curiosity and irreversible love towards the 6 string instrument.

My story? Mom is somewhat responsible for observing my interest towards rock and fueling it up with a few CDs back in 96. I can remember even now - A Metallica and Guns N Roses greatest hits biggrin.gif Well, I noticed Slash and... the rest is history tongue.gif

How about YOU?


Me ??? It was the love of rock music, the bands Linkin Park and Three Days Grace got me into music in general. Then, I wanted to play guitar because I liked the heaviness of Linkin Park songs (Crawling and Papercut) and I knew it came from the guitars, the wall of distortion, so I wanted to play, and I had a good voice back in the day and my friend told me I could sing and we could start a band. I liked the idea, begged my parents and finally got one in December 2010. Although I couldn't play till March 2011 due to some reasons like exams dry.gif But I started playing. And after a month or so, the guy who was supposed to be the founding member and be doing drums quit even before BUYING the drums because I started to like early Metallica laugh.gif We had a fight and haven't talked since tongue.gif

Fast forward some time, I am not so serious with the guitar, I hear about a band called Megadeth, whose lead vocalist is their lead guitarist, I hear the song called "The Mechanix" and BOOOM !!! I now know that I can do Lead Vocals and Lead Guitar, some people told me it was impossible laugh.gif And now my new inspirations for the same, Alexi Laiho, and our very own, Cosmin Lupu biggrin.gif

I think we already know the answer to that one. I can think of 1, maybe 2 that spring to mind....

Mates! I totally agree with Gabe's observation and I must add the following one:

Have you ever noticed that we all tend to enjoy metal covers done after pop songs? The issue here is not the music, but the orchestration biggrin.gif Add the big hardcore drumming and the loud guitars and there's a pretty big percentage of a chance that you will like the result smile.gif


Yeah biggrin.gif I liked the Children of Bodom cover to Britney Spear's Oops, I did it Again biggrin.gif laugh.gif

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.
