Re: WHAT SONG MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY.

i bought the ultimate ozzy video years n years ago and was mesmerised by jake e lee's guitar solo and though man i wanna play like that.i went out n bought a guitar (marlin sidewinder) and a amp.only lasted a few months cos there was nobody around to give me lessons.so a few years went by and i saw the video to heaven tonight (yngwie malmsteen) man that guitar solo is still the best solo ive ever heard,very melodic beautiful piece of music.so i started again,i bought a yamaha guitar and a dak 50 amp which i remember was a very nice amp,the delays were amazing and the rest is history

Rob, nice 'For The Love Of God' cover

Mine was probably 'Cherub Rock' by Smashing Pumpkins.

Re: WHAT SONG MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY.

Probably Sum 41 - Makes No Difference. Not exactly a classic, I know, but the opening riff from that was something completely new for me.

Re: WHAT SONG MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY.

Enter Sandman.

Heard that riff and my ears pricked up, I was only about 12. Then a band covered it at my school a few months later (by which time I was Metallica Mental).

Pissed me off, then coverered (what is now an easy song) it really badly. Out of time, out of tune and didn't even do the solos.

I went home determined to know I could play it, and I did! First real solo I ever learnt.

I was listening to Hendrix, Santana, Pink Floyd around the same time, just grew from there really!

Re: WHAT SONG MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY.

Was playing classical piano since age 4 and at around age 11 I heard Michael Jacksons Beat it with Van Halen on solo and went, wow what the hell makes that sound :P and I made the switch.. Well I demanded I quit piano and my folks agreed but I had to take up another instrument. so guitar it was..

Re: WHAT SONG MADE YOU WANT TO PLAY.

Hey guys! Funnily enough Aeolian that was the same album that made me want to play some 6 years ago! My friend who played guitar at the time lent me that album after watching him play his strat...i picked up guitar pretty fast with his help and hes recently just completed his degree at the ACM in london..lets just say hes become a great player now! He kept banging on about FIABD...but i took a better liking to the potato head
