Topic: WHO'S responsable that YOU started to play guitar
I think this is a hard one to answer. We pick up with our ears, so many sounds.
I AM NOT ASKING THE WHO IS THE BEST GUITAR PLAYER, but I am so curious to find out if a guitarplayer, young, old I don't care.
BUT I do care for answers like why not playing drums or bassguitar, because I am a guitarman myself, I just know that the rythmsection is definatly underestimated. To play alone: you must be a damn good fingerpicker.
In my case, acoustic (I am NO FINGERPICKER AT ALL), I do remember leo "machinegun" Kottke, who amazed me how beautiful his play sounds. Same category: Neil Young & Bawb Dylan, they both play electric as well, but look it up, Dylan makes a fenomenal song using just 3 accords, also 4 and very rare 5 accords. It is unbelievable what this man does with 3 accords. Everyone knows the song KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR, you should go 1 step further and listen to the rest of the songs, in wich he plays almost every song with 3 accords, BILLY THE KID, album. Every song exists almost by the grace of 3 basic chords, also they look alike (FILM MUSIC) it is in my eyes the best stuff he made, in a technical way+melody.
Electric: JOHN FOGERTY, simple, but straight from the heart, with CCR. That is the reason why I started to play guitar: FOGERTY YOUNG DYLAN <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_cool.gif" border=0 alt="Cool">
- MY GUITAR PLAYS EVERY STYLE = BLUES, ROCK, METAL, so I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT.
