"Root" by the Deftones is what made me want to play guitar......As for drums, I don't remember, i think I just always wanted to after years of tapping on desks in school

I wanted to be able to play the Van Halen solo in Michael Jackson's "Beat It" when I was about 7.. but I didn't pick up the guitar for another 5 years.

Geez, it was so long ago i don't even really remember. Back then I was listening to crap like Green Day and Nirvana. Probably something like "Smells Like Teen Spirit", but I'm not sure one song alone influenced me to pick up the guitar.

Edit: *smacks forehead*

The pink panther theme song is what first got me interested in playing bass.

I started classical violin at age 6 - no choice, and I hated it untill I moved out and didn't have to play any more.

I still play, and have been listening to bluegrass, trying to move over. I listen to plenty of rock (recently the GD), but there's no fiddle in there.

I'd like to be able to play the music I like, but it'll take some innovation, since the fiddle isn't a rock instrument.

I think the fiddle has a melencholy tone, and won't fit into any music that is too pure angry/happy/anything else.

oh yeah, when i was 11 i saw the movie "Crossroads"
it starred Ralph Machio (Karate Kid) as a young classical guitar prodigy,
who breaks an old blues man out of a nursing home in New York,
to take him back to Hwy 61 in mississippi where the old man
had sold his Soul to Legma in order to become a famous musician.

@ the end of the movie, the Karate Kid has a guitar duel w/ Jack Butler (Steve Vai)
that's when i said "Mom, i want to learn how to play guitar" :smirk:

thanx for reminding me of that...

I play all instruments..so all music :grin:
I guess "my" instrument would be guitar though sooo.. I have to be honest..Bush.
Them and Nirvana back in the seventh grade ..I still think Nigel Pulsford? has a awesome sound..simlistic but clean.. and good.
later Hendrix and SRV gave me a sharp bluesy turn..and later again, my first book Metallica-Kill em All, turned me on to metal..
now days I get inspired everywhere!
from other guitarists ..to symphonies ..from electronic music to the sound of a river..music rules :laugh:

What turned me on to bass was PRIMUS
specifically The Toys Come Winding ..those triplet gallops ..ooo man thats cool
..also Led Zepplin's Ramble on

Rush 2112 got me wantin to play drums.. Neil pert is unbelievable..

most recently the jazz stations got me playin piano..I cant wait till im good ..im gonna make some cool samples on keyboard
I wish I owned a guitar center.. pretty much every instrument I see I want to play.

Actually, a friend of mine who played guitar made me want to pick up the instrument. However, it was "Galapagos" by Smashing Pumpkins that made me want to write music.

the only thing that inspired me to play the guitar was the want to express myself through music instead of words.

I will be buying a bass guitar soon though.. and what inrpires me to play the bass is oysterhead.

John Frusciante really inspires me in the acoustical guitar area.
he just makes me want to funk it out on the guitar while i wail in high pitch emotive vocals.  :stoned:

Anyone down with cryptopsy? Cause keeping up with Eric Langlois (bass) is my biggest goal ever haha. Ofcourse you cant jump right into crazy shit like that, but hearing Graves of the Fathers is what made me want to start out in the first place.

When I was a kid, my mom had a tape called "Jive Bunny and the Mastermixes"

it was a DJ mixing together al these old 50's and 60's rock songs. I must've played that tape 100 times and just danced my ass off in the basement.

First thing you hear is..
"Ladies an gentlemen! The one and only! J-J-J-JIVE BUNNY AND THE MASTERMIXES"
then it breaks out into Little Richard Tutti-Frutti

WELL ALLRIGHT EVERYBODY! WHOP BOB A LOO BA A WHOP BAM BOO!

memories right there!
LOL you can download the song if you want,

just search - "Jive Bunny and the Mastermixes - The Rock n Roll Party Mix"
