I hate to admit it.
Korn
Limp Bizkit
System of a Down.

But I've come a long way to learn how to play some Disgorge, Soilent Green, Deeds of Flesh, and Suffocation.

Kirk Hammett, James Hetfield, Jeff Hanneman, Kerry King, Dimebag and Slash all inspired me to START playing guitar. Ever since then a lot of other guitarists from various genres inspired me to be a better guitarist.

Actually my sister got me started playing guitar like 3 years ago, it was some stupid bet where I said I could be better than her in two weeks of playing. She had been playing for 4 years at the time I think.

The guitar players that inspired me to go further and work harder.

Friends - They have given me advice along the way

My guitar Teacher - He's been around since I started playing

Of course my sister all those years ago.

Metallica - They helped pull me into the metal world and play guitar.

Megadeth - They made me want to work harder and get better at my instrument.

Mohammad Scuimez - I've listened to a lot of different guitar players since I got into guitar oriented music, and the band I always go back to is Necrophagist. So he definitely is my favorite guitarist, and has pushed me to work harder.

That's about all.

i've listened to metal since i was maybe 9 or 10, but only began playing guitar after 20 so it's hard to say who made me go start. the guitarists who always made me wish i could play guitar were zakk wylde (i don't like BLS, i am talking about "no rest.." through "no more tears" era ozzy and also his pride & glory side project), jeff hanneman, kirk hammet, marty friedman, bill steer & mike amott. i would say randy rhoads too, because i always thought he was insanely talented, but the recording quality of the records he was on just sounded dull compared to the newer stuff. i came to appreciate him much more after i started playing guitar. still he always sounded incredible to me on "tribute" so that's probably one of my most favorite guitar albums of all. there were also some bands who i was not a huge fan of but loved their guitarists playing and tone, like rocky george of suicidal tendencies, allen west and james murphy in obituary, eddie van halen, and probably others.

Actually, the guitar itself interested me 1000 times more than any other instrument when I was a little kid, and it was only a matter of time before a guitar and I would meet (when I was about 14). But prior to actually picking it up, I went through a breif nu-metal phase, which was soon forged out of the picture upon discovering Slayer and Metallica (typical late-'90s kid's birth as a metalhead). But since I started playing, Chuck Schuldiner has been by leaps and bounds the single most influential figure on my playing and on my general take on music. I remember the first time I heard Death, it was surreal.. I was an instant fan, to say the least. Some other greatly influential players for me were Marty Friedman, Jason Becker, Dave Mustaine, James Murphy, Hendrix, Slash, SRV, Dimebag, and plenty more..

This is easy. Mr. Allshouse, my Jr. High choir director. He had an old Gibson ES and couldn't play piano so he'd play guitar. I heard "Joe Turner Blues" and was hooked.
