  • inspirations

    I am not asking who inspired you. I am not asking who your favorite guitarist is.





    I AM asking:

    Who do you think has inspired the most people to pick up and learn to play electric guitar?







    Who is it, who is your best guess?




    I'm thinking maybe Cobain or Ace Frehley - if acoustics were included it would probably have to be The Beatles, maybe it still is... but **************** acoustics in this thread

                I think that these days people are more prone to pick up the guitar because of personal friends and family/or aquantances that already play. They usually dont become inspired by the big boys until they learn the basics. After that then they start looking to identify with the famous players.

                  For the kid's these days, its not "who" but "what". Definitely its "Guitar Hero" thats turning the kids on to the electric guitar.

                    When I hear baby boomer guitar pros interviewed, a large number of them point to the Ventures.

                    For the younger boomers and post boomers, I'm betting Hendrix and Clapton.

                      Jimmy Page, EVH, James Hetfield, and Cobain. Those'd be my guesses.

                      EDIT: Oh, Slash too.

                        They were definitely one of my main influences.

                          And again I would guess Mark Knofler....wheres the confusion here?
