Everything that came out of motown made me want to play piano. Shine On You Crazy Diamond made me want to play rock.

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.




You should check out Bob Dylan's Desire album, particularly "Hurricane". His band had a fiddle player at that point.

Old thread, oh well. I can't remember why I took up bass many years ago but just recently I have put the bass down for an acoustic guitar, I want to learn classical mostly because of 'Cavatina' by Stanley Myers (theme song in The Deer Hunter)

Not a song, but a traditional blues riff, played by my dads friend, inspired me to play guitar. 

But what really got me to keep playing was the entire Alice in Chains Unplugged album.  :grin:

Honestly, I'd have to say what got me started playing guitar was Drop D tuning. So long ago, my friend showed me how to play a simple power chord on any fret in Drop D. I took that and ran... I've been self-teaching ever since.

However, here are a few songs/riffs/pieces that have inspired me to keep at it and get better: (God, this is going to make me look young...)

311 - Beautiful Disaster (especially the two-guitar solos... god I love those. Easily one of my favorite things to play with another guitarist)

Incubus - Just a Phase (Especially the intro riff, but honestly, the whole song just blows my mind...)

Incubus - Mexico

Shinedown - Simple Man

Third Eye Blind - Thanks a lot (particularly that solo... it just zings right into my soul)

Chili Peppers - Under the bridge (intro riff especially)

Nonpoint - Hide and Seek (intro/verse riff)

Eric Clapton - Layla (live acoustic version)

i remember the first stuff I learned how to play on guitar was Nirvana, cuz it was so damn easy.
And I don't really like Nirvana.

so I can't really say




Deff Nirvana

Kurt Cobain got an electric guitar for christmas..had no amp
His mom got pissed at her BF (after her and kurts dad's divorce) and told kurts sister to throw all the guns in the house in the river be she shot the dude..
Kurt paid some kids 5$ to fish the duffle bag of guns out of the river and turned around and pawned them for his first guitar amp..

I got so into guitar and inspired by kurt's "anything for guitar" motives..
At age 16 I did some pretty illegal shit (stupid now that i'm older) to get money for this amp:


ANYTHING FOR MUSIC MAN!

On top of that piece of inspiring dedication..
Nirvana in general, the whole 3 man band, emotional passion nirvana entailed..

Nirvana - Lake of fire (Meatpuppets cover from Unplugged in New York)
Made me pick up a guitar and learn...

Since then I've aquired over 30 guitars, written 22 songs, recorded on analog reel to reel
(going digital soon, look for link in my sig)

^ Wow, got carried away there for a min. ^

Summary: Nirvana - lake of fire <- good stuff..
