Thread: Calling All Guitarists!!!

  1. #1

    Cool Calling All Guitarists!!!

    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.

    I'm been playing since I was 18. Never took any classes and because I didn't start earlier or pratice that much I'm not great or very good, I'm just ok I guess lol.

    Right now I have one classical, one electric and two acoustics. One of the acoustics and the classical (my first one) are not known brands, the other acoustic is a Fender CD60 and the electric is a Epiphone Les Paul honeyburst. I like playing mostly rock riffs or acosutic songs. I got into Led Zeppelin around the same time I started playing guitar so Jimmy Page has been a huge influence, I'm into a lot of the early rock and classic rock from the 60's and early 70's as well as music that is similar or kind of evokes that classic/vintage vibe or attitude.

    Although as a guitar player I play mostly rock, blues and some metal, I'm a music lover so I listen to a lot of different genres and music from different eras and countries.

    It's funny you mentioned Kirk but your avatar is Dave Mustaine haha. I Like Metallica too, one the first bands I listened when I started to get interested in music in the late 90's.

    Yeah man I love Zeppelin. I thought about mentioning Jimmy Paige but I didn't want to... Ramble On Anyways, bad puns aside, I also have an Epiphone acoustic which is quite nice, as well as a tiny classical guitar from when I took lessons for a couple months when I was 8. I also have a cherry red fender squire, which was just a crappy beginner guitar, but hey gotta start somewhere.

    My musical taste actually differs a bit from what I like to play on guitar at times. For example, I love playing the blues but oddly I find that it gets on my nerves if I listen to it for more than short bits of time. But, I really enjoy music all across the rock genre. Everything from Sublime and Incubus to Pantera and Slayer. And yeah Kirk is great and I enjoy their music more, but I think we both know who wins that battle and slightly off topic, your avatar is unbelievably awesome.

    You're the third person that compliments my avatar, I don't think I thank the other too but thanks to everyone who likes it, it's not mine though. I found it while browsing and because I'm huge Star Wars fan and Han Solo is my favourite character I've decided to use it.

    Well I don't know who wins the battle but I think I prefer Kirk to Dave to be honest haha. You asked about guitar styles, I'm definitely on the side that prefers more feeling, holding notes and serving the song.

    dayum I've been playing for around 8 or 9 years and went to music school. I have 5 or six bc rich's, an edwards, two grassroots, a couple other random ones I've received for free over the years, and a couple I made myself. As a player, I'm mostly into metal and jazz fusion players like allan holdsworth, marty friedman, chris poland, josh christian, jason becker, alex skolnick, andy la roque, jeff waters, jake e lee, greg howe, Roger fisher, I could go on forever really. I have an acoustic but I'm much more an electric player. I only have like one or two that don't have floyds on them, so I'm pretty much just interested in rippin it.

    I've been playing since my mid teens. I used to be in a band in college. I'm influenced by many: Joe Satriani; Eric Clapton; Eric Johnson and Steve Vai to name a few. I like to play rock and blues and just diddle up and down the neck. My current gear consists of: Fender Telecoustic; G & L ASAT; Gibson Les Paul Futura; PRS SE Dave Navarro Signature; a custom SG I had made for me; a gold Les Paul copy and a Squier Strat that just seems to scream.

    I've been playing for 4 or 5 years now. I am ok. I only have an acoustic, but plan on getting an electric soon. I started out playing classic rock, but I more enjoy playing Indie rock. I don't have too many influences, I should listen to more Hendrix though.

    I have only one guitar, a Taylor 810WMB (with more bass) which I bought used from the Taylor Dealer in Tulsa. The 810 WMB is one of about 5 guitars, as I recall, that was made in limited quantities for some Taylor milestone or other. If my memory serves me, there were only approx. 265 810WMB's made, and mine is serial number 137. I basically just strum along with whatever I am listening to, and try to pick up some of the leads that get played. I started playing in 1962 when I was going to Radio school in the navy, on a Sears Archtop (read Harmony, as they made the Sears Guitar) that fretted like a barbed wire fence., but I didn't know any better. I bought the 810 because the same store had a used Dan Crary model Taylor that I thought I wanted, but the store said I really wanted the 810, because of the type of music I tend to play. I don't regret buying it, but I never really go to play the Dan Crary model other than for a few minutes in the store.

    I've been playing for 8 years. Been touring with a band for a while. Just ended since they moved to Nashville and signed up with a record label and I was ready that.

    I have a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Studio, 2013 Fender American Custom Shop Telecaster, 2 American Standard Stratocasters (1991 and 2006), and a 1962 Silvertone Hollow-body Electric
