2. Mike McCready and Stone Gossard to teach me simplicity
3. John Frusciante with his Nianda LaDes to make me wear T-Shirts
4. Frank Zappa to make me love Young Pumpkins
5. and John Abercrombie to turn completely insane

and, as #0 I'd put Mr. Hendrix. He is the fire itself...

1. Tony Iommi - He lost two of his finger tips on his fretting hand the day before he was suppose to quit his job to tour with Black Sabbath. The doctors all said he would never play guitar again. He went on to INVENT HEAVY METAL. It was his idea to "write scary music". Anyone who's ever loved Metal owes this man a debt of gratitude, and yet he's rarely mentioned in lists like this.

The rest is in no particular order:

Iron Maiden - Their songs conjure up strength and courage in me where there was none. Theres a word for that, its called Magic.

Eric Clapton - Dont need to explain

Kurt Cobain - for his melodic haikus

Jimi Hendrix - see Eric Clapton

QUOTE (rokchik @ Sep 30 2007, 06:57 PM) *
1. Muris and Gabriel ( Gabriels lessons made me want to join when I first looked at GMC. His style of play was simular to what I noticed mine becoming and since Muris has joined I've found the wonderful world of finger picking smile.gif Both keep me motivated to learn and practice harder.)

Amen. I would also add Marcus to that list.

Equipment: Classical/Jazz hybrid guitar. blunt/black humor.

Success is the best revenge.

In no particular Order :-

1. Kristofer Dahl - This guy without a doubt is my first and biggest influence, i listened to everything he had to teach when i first picked up guitar and its still paying off today. (lucky too that as a then new player i had no bad habits to start with laugh.gif )

2. Paul Gilbert, because he is an entire package when it comes to music, and he just makes me want to be as good as i can be. Not just a shredder, he has perfect rythm, timeing and musicality.

3. Buckethead, for the shame reasons really, this guy is music! From the cleanest fastest most face frying shred runs, to his beautiful melodic acoustic playing. Generally leaves my jaw on the floor laugh.gif

4. The Edge, Ok so he may not be the most technical guy in the world, but im a proud fan! This guy is very talented in my eyes, not about ego, he sets the mood for each song perfectly.

5. Muris, Gabriel and Pavel tongue.gif

mysql> SELECT * FROM master_name WHERE ((firstname = 'Paul') AND (lastname = 'Gilbert'));

"The Fundimental Difference between Paul Gilbert and Buckethead is that Paul Explores the Good side of the force, while Buckethead Explores the Dark Side of the Force" :)
