[font=trebuchet ms]I've been going back over some of my older material, and I have to amend my list as follows:

  • Pete Townsend
  • Jimmy Page
  • Mark Farner
  • Leslie West
  • Albert King





It's funny how some guitarists that I really admire have very little effect on how I actually play, and others stand out clearly without me recognizing them.[/font]

These guys are better than everyone else. You might think that they are overrated, but they heavily influenced me. Joe Satriani ,Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Yngwie Malmsteen, and John Petrucci. :cool: :cool:

:) it could be, but i just enjoy the music...im usually quick to judge bands, but i have stuck with system and i have liked them constantly alot...i also find alot of the music i write to "have the same feel" of a soad song...but there are plenty of other armenians in rock i dont listen to (Apex Theory(liked them for a while), and the guitarist of Dream Theature is Armenian (never bothered getting into them)...........Soad is closest thing to "pop" i listen to, everything else is black or extreme (slayer, kreator, etc.)
