  • Name 5 guitar players you stole the most from.

    And I use the term stole in a respectful way.... Perhaps I should've said influenced the most by.
    I'm inspired by so many that it's so hard to choose from really.

    I'm gonna go take advantage of an empty house, so after I jam a little it and dissect my playing and who influenced me in that area the most, I'll edit my post. There really are guys I like who do certain things so awesomely, and I try to model myself out of all those guys combined, except for the talent.

    Edit:
    KK Downing
    Allen West
    Brian Hoffman
    Andreas Kisser
    Andy Sneap

      James Hetfield (really the reason I started playing guitar)
      Gus G
      Jean-Francois Dagenais
      Jesper Stromblad
      Andy Gillion

            Only three come to mind:
            Chuck Berry, who of course influenced generations of players such as Keith Richards and Angus Young.
            Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd of Television.
            I own one signature model guitar - the Elliot Easton Gretsch Duo Jet. But I bought it because it looked great and not because his name was on the pickguard.

                  Well you know what, you learned from some of the best that's for sure man!
                  Every single person mentioned were inspired by and borrowed from all of those players and many more. Without those old blues players, we wouldn't have had Clapton,Richards,Page,Beck,Blackmore,Iommi...and without those guys, we wouldn't have VanHalen,Rhoads,Yngwie,Gilbert,Moore,etc...

                  Its the trumped up trickle down effect...

                    Given your username, I'd expect Kurdt Vanderhoof to be on your list...

                      That's what everyone says and I guess I can't blame them. While I do like Metal Church's first 2 albums a lot, they really don't even crack the top 20 of my fav bands. Probably not the top 40 actually.. I used this name on a local PA musicians forum back in 2002 and because I'm forgetful, I kept using it for other forums. Kurt does have some good riffs and they are cited as big influences by a lot of metal guys.

                        I always think I can easily make lists like this one, then I start writing and it becomes impossible haha.

                        I could make a list for that initial influence that made me want to pick up the guitar and drove me to keep practicing and developing at a young age - the "holy shit, guitar is awesome I want to be just like that" influence, and then there's a list for influence that really helped shape my playing and my own style once I was writing and recording my own stuff. I'll go with that one here (hard to do only 5, lol).

                        Henrik Danhage
                        Jesper Stromblad
                        Peter Wichers
                        Jerry Cantrell
                        Chris & Michael Amott (had to name both)

                        Edit: I'm cheating here! Big honorable mention for Jon Donaise from Shadows Fall. He's probably the reason I don't use trems. I remember hearing his vibrato and thinking it HAD to be a floyd or trem, and it was just his hands. I have pretty aggressive vibrato and I think it's because of him.

                          That's what I meant when making this post....
                          I meant for everyone to list guys that they can attribute their personal style and playing to. NOT those who inspire you. Its really two different things.

                          For example, I feel as though some of my slower riffing comes from listening to Allen West from Obituary and more notable Six Feet Under. I feel as though some of my faster riffing I get from Eric and Brian Hoffman of Deicide...
                          Yngwie inspires me, but none of my playing is like his really...

                          Hopefully everyone got what I meant....

                              I think this is very good representation:
                              George Lynch
                              Warren Dimartini
                              Steve Vai
                              EVH
                              Reb Beach
