PostSubject: Musical Instruments ?   Thu May 28, 2009 9:14 pm

This is for all of us that play a Musical Instrument , Why do you play ? Who made you want to play ? And last who is your idols ?

My reason for playing Guitar is my step dad . When i was little i remember the sounds of bluegrass coming from his old d -18 and my uncle ( step uncle ) leo's dove . My step - dad wanted me to learn to play to keep me out of trouble .. It never worked i was alwas in trouble ..

I love the music i make . When i was about 14 things changed for me , I was tired of the **** music that people was making and i wanted to see if i could do better .. And no i suck for **** .

Well my idol on guitar is 2 people .. EDDIE VAN HALEN & TONY IOMMI ..

I play guitar. It's kind of a stress reliever for me, I still suck at it though.

My inspiration for it was Bob Dylan.

I'm a bass player. I just always though basses were cool.

Main inspiration for taking it seriously was Dee Dee Ramone.

I picked up the guitar after I fell in love with rock & roll and metal. I had played the violin first, but I needed something louder and heavier. The violin just didn't do it for me. I picked up a guitar and I never looked back. I still play my violin, but my guitar is my main instrument. I would gladly set my $800 dollar violin ablaze to save my $100 guitar. I have a lot of music influences, but I will post just a few of them.

Blues/Acoustic

Guitar. My inspiraion was Ace Frehley and listening to KISS. A modern idol would be Steve Vai. Been going for very nearly 15 years now...

Piano. Ketboard lessons were a mandatory part of music class for me and it grew from there. Once I heard I Don't Like Monday's, I wanted to be Johnny Fingers. Chopin's work was a big influence too.

Drums. This is something I've taken up in the last 9 months or so, with no real reason other than the drums are ****ing cool. Keith Moon, Flo Mournier and David Murray are all inspirational to me.

I love Chopin... he is by far one of my favorite romantic composers.... and one of my favorite classical composers in general. I also love Keith Moon, I've wanted to try the drums just because of him

I play guitar and my inspiration was my father, my cousin, and my uncle. My idols are Paul Gilbert, Muddy Waters, Beethoven, and Blues in general I say. I like to think of my favorite composer as Mozart mainly because he has sooooo much material.
