Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield inspired me start playing. It was soon later that Dimebag and Alexi Laiho inspired me to work harder and get better at it.

Meshuggah and Fear Factory were my original guitar influences. I liked how fuxked up and low Meshuggah were, and I loved the fast-picked 'brrrr' sound of Fear Factory. It was my original motivation to learn tremolo picking on guitar, and I managed to learn it in a couple of months, only it took me a bit longer to get it tight.

I don't remember who or what it was that actually made me want to pick up a guitar, I was just madly in love with all music anyway and wanted to play something else besides keyboards. In all honesty it was probably David Gilmour of Pink Floyd, as his stuff was the first things I learned on the guitar. However one player who did inspire me to practice mad hours a day was Steve Vai.

I've always liked music from video games and other retarded shit like that. So when I played a game called guilty gear I wanted to learn how to shred. And I really sucked untill I got into children of bodom (my first metal band). So some guitarists that inspire me are:
Daisuke Ishiwatari
Alexi Laiho
Chuck Schuldiner
Jeff Loomis

to play in the beginning it was probably thrash bands,etallica,Megadeth,Slayer, so forth so on, but then I started to get a little more serious and watched this video that Paul Gilbert did(I think it was the second Intense rock video) from then on it has been shred, eat(and shred), shred, sleep(and shred), repeat.

Apart from the fellas I mentioned, the solo to "Return to Flesh" had a big impact on me wanting to play guitar.

Ritchie Blackmore. For both the intrest and devotion(sp?) to play well.

I think Child in Time or Highway Star first got me to go; "Fuck, I want to be able to do that!", and later Stargazer to make me want to perfect my bending and fretting precision.

But since then a lot of guys have influenced me such as:

Chuck
David Gilmour
Mikael Akerfeldt
Steven Wilson
and so forth...

Though I hate to say it it was probably Noel Gallagher when I first started out.

nobody really. i was 14 or 15 years old and just going to school and hanging out with friends. my parents got sick of me not doing anything but getting into trouble with my friends and made me pick something to take up a chunk of my time. they said they'd make me sign up for some sport at school or some shit and after a while of threats one of them came up with the idea of learning an instrument, the guitar.. thinking that was the least of all the "evils" they were forcing upon me, i started taking some lessons and got a used yamaha something or other..once i moved, i stopped the lessons, but kept playing.

now its about 10 years later and i couldn't thank them enough for forcing me to play haha. pretty ironic...

I saw a pic of Kerry King and thought "Fuck me!" but lately I've been listening alot to jazz/blues/fusion and it has rubbed on to me and it makes we want to get better.
