Zsolt Galambos

Location: Budapest, Hungary
Date of Birth: May 25th 1976
Been playing guitar since: 1992

I started playing at the age of 16, but the serious practice started only around 2000. I am a completely self taught guitarist, although I learned a few things from my friends.

My first guitar was an acoustic, and I learnt almost all the solos from Metallica on this acoustic guitar by ear. My first electric guitar was a "Melodia" explorer, a Slovakian brand I think, but I literally
turned it to an ESP using a hammer and a chisel...

Now that's R'n'R!

Next to guitar playing I studied electronics. I'm also interested in self study, yoga and meditation.

Playing and Influences

I pretty much dig all the guitar music out there, but my favorite is hard rock and metal. I also love classical music and Flamenco.

My first inspiration was James Hetfield from Metallica. Kirk Hammet was my first guitar god - I didn't actually want to become a solo guitarist until I heard Joe Satriani, and later Dimebag Darrel.

My favorite guitarist are: Jason Becker, Paul Gilbert, Michael Romeo, Zakk Wylde, Dimebag Darrel, Joe Satriani, George Lynch.
