Actually music just interested me, and thats how i got into it. Started doing vocals at first, then moved to guitar. But i mean i guess you could say i have a lot of thrash(Overkill, Forbidden), groove(Machine Head, Pantera), nu(old Staind, old Slipknot) metal influences from those guitarist.

kurt cobain

People always said his songs were easy, so I started playing his songs on my dad's accoustic and thats were it started really. I like how he could make nice songs with simple stuff. Good to impress non-guitarists.

Dave Murray, Kirk hammet those are now my biggest influences. Also Ac/dc and Priest.

Growing up there were only acoustic guitars in the house. Didn't decide to seriously make an effort on the guitar until I heard Alexi Laiho play. I'm not a Children of Bodom listener anymore, but I have to attribute where I've gotten today to him.

I don't care what anyone thinks but the two guitarists that inspired me to play metal were Mick Thomson and Kerry King.

Yes, I'm sure I will get alnog just fine. I've moved on a bit since then though you have to understand. Cannibal Corpse are the main band I look up to these days (guitar wise).

I guess my first "push" into the guitar world was by watching Jack White of the White Stripes. Then later on it was Matt Heafy of Trivium (-_-...) I hate to admit it but I think learning Trivium songs was what gave me a really strong base for my learning. I built up a lot of down-stroke speed and accuracy.

It was the metalcore bands I liked back then which acted as a springboard to bring me onto harsher music, and eventually up to brutal death metal- the likes of Wormed, Amputated, etc

Of course, my inspiration up till this day is Buckethead. A friend introduced me to his work a couple of years ago and I was blown away. Definitally my favourite guitarist of all time. Ever. Ever.

..

Ever.

Chuck Schuldiner and Jeff Hannemann were the ones who made me want to start. These days I take influence from pretty much everything I listen to, anything from Wu-Tang Clan to Disgorge, but it still manages to be brutal.

I also expect a happy birthday tommorrow. Fags.

Oh man, that movie kicks so much ass. Always pissed off that Vai/Jack Butler had to lose to the Karate Kid. Like I said before, Vai was one of my #1 inspirations to put in "the work."

No offence taken. Slipknot just got me into heavy music, I never listen to them anymore though.
