Hey, thought it would be fun to post the 5 albums (No order) that influence your playing the most. The albums that are the reason you play the way you do today. I'll go first...
1. Led Zeppelin- Mothership
2. Every album with Takayoshi Ohmura as guitarist
3. Guthrie Govan- Erotic Cakes
4. S.R.V.-Live Alive
5. Iron Maiden- Dance of Death

Hmmm, doesn't exactly fit in one genre. Go ahead! biggrin.gif

1. Gun's & Roses - Appetite for destruction
2. Ramones - Mondo Bizarro
3. Steve Vai - Passion & Warfare
4. Incubus - Morning View
5. Dream Theater - Scenes from a memory

Too many. Lately Papa Roach's "Infest", Maiden's "Piece of mind" and Linkin Park's "Meteora". The list could go on forever.
