Re: Who was it that finally made you pick up the guitar
Well,.. I figured I wanted to play myself.. And bought a real crappy acoustic for $10 from a friend ( still have it,... unplayable!! ).
And then magic happened..
A friend of mine who was a drummer introduced me to dreamtheater's music.
I bought an electric ( epiphone SG, hey, what did I know? )
I met my guitar teacher! The biggest inspiration I ever had. It was like having John Petrucci, Yngwie and/or Steve Vai in my bedroom teaching me. The guy still is an amazing player! He made me progress sooooo much. Now, we're good friends and he still amazes me with his playing. Great motivation !
