hi all wondered what song or tune artist whateve first inspired you to play guitar i had a lot of musical input but the one track made me wanna play was money for nothing what a riff. www.myspace.com/robhayesrockguitar :wink:
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
ive played violin since i was 7, wanted to play guitar since i was 4,
started when i was 10 after listening to rory gallagher's calling card, id heard it a millino times (being irish, although im in australia )
but listening to it then just made me feel i needed 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 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..
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 :razz:
I used to be able to play FIABD some 15 years ago, quite fluently too, then having stopped playing for 12 years and picking the guitar up again 3 years ago i find my fingers just dont want to play ball.
But yeah!, was the sole influencing album for me back in the day..!!
No one song as such but a combination of my Dad, who is a guitarist, showing me Hendrix Live at Monterey, that, and any track from AC/DC's 'If You Want Blood You Got It' (Live) album. That was the beginning of the end for for me in everything I had endeavoured to be up to that point.
My parents made me play the guitar when I was about 6, I hated it, so I quit... Then when I was 11 my parents made me play again, but I was pretty reluctant to play. Then, 2 years ago, when I was 15 I heard Satch Boogie and For the Love of God. I was just like "HOLY **** YOU CAN DO THAT WITH A GUITAR?!?!?!?!?" Then I fell in love with guitar...
