I'm dying to know if there are any other avid guitar players lurking in the Adisc forums. If so, tell me about yourself! How long have you been playing? What model guitar(s) do you have? Electric or acoustic? What styles do you most enjoy playing? What guitarists influence you the most? Tell me everything!!!:D
I've personally been playing since I was 13 so about 5 years. My most relevant guitars are a blacktop Fender Stratocaster and a my prized possession, my saphire PRS SE Custom 24. Needless to say, I strongly prefer electric. My style of playing greatly shifts with my mood. When I started playing I was a huge metal head and that's pretty much exclusively what I played, but lately, I've been really into the blues as well as more toned down, chill music. I'll still jam out to some metal whenever I'm feeling hyped up though :cool: Overall, I'd have to say I'm most heavily influenced by Metallica's Kirk Hammet. I listened to them SO MUCH and no matter how much I progress his style still shows through in mine no matter what style I'm playing. Lately, however, I've been taking notes from the great blues rock virtuoso's like Stevie Ray Vaughan and of course, Jimi Hendrix.
P.S. Can anyone tell me how to get pictures from my computer to show up in my post. I can't get it to work :/ I suck at everything involving computers.
