Your Styles:

Rock, Alt Rock, Prog Rock, Punk Rock, Grunge Rock, Rock 'n' Roll-
I listen to a lot of rock. I picked up guitar to learn a few rock songs. I am pretty much a rocker fool... Creed really first got me into guitar because their songs were so darn easy to play. I got into some better rock guitarists, Hendrix, Satch, Vai, Led Zepplin, as I got better. Soon, I was just making up my own stuff... Rock is still my main style, and the one I love to play the most.

Metal, Alt Metal-
This style has just about broken off from traditional rock. I first played just a little of the eternally power chord crunching of a few Christian metal bands, but soon I started listening to a bit of Metallica. Metallica surprised me, beacuse the songs were very melodic, challenging, and had all that fun power chord crunching. Playing their songs has drastically improved my lead skills and a lot of my fingerpicking skills.

Jazz, Fusion-
I first got exposed to little Jazz when I got the first G3 album, for the Satch and Vai stuff. Eric Johnson was one of the other players on there, and I just listened and thought... "You know, that is some really cool challenging guitar work there." At the beginning of this year, i started playing in my school's Jazz band, and got to play a bit of Jazz stuff (although none of the fusion type guitar solo work) and learn all those fun Jazz chords... Cool style to learn, and has definitely expanded my chord vocabulary.

Blues-
Ah yes, I remember my first attempts at lead work while playing over Jimi Hendrix's classic Red House. Blues was the first stuff I started soloing off of, and now I really got that shuffle feel pulsating in my head, and that altered minor pentatonic running through my fretboard as I wail away...

Funk, Ska-
Yup, I comp them 9th chords. Funk is a very energetic percussive style of playing that I enjoy. I also like playing funk bass... some of the funnest stuff to just jam out on. Ska is also something that I started listening to back in 98-99. Ska may be a short-lived craze, but I still like playing it...

CCM P&W-
I play as guitarist at church. Playing and leading people into worship. Most rewarding style that I play.

Biggest Influence: A lot. Mark Tremonti early on, but now more of Joe Satriani, Jimi Hendrix, Alex Lifeson, Jimmy Page, Santana, Kirk Hammett, and a few others. :yep:

EDIT: Was looking through old threads to give a few better answers to these questions...

What Song Was It: don't remember

Funnest Song To Play: hmmm.... lately, "Sick Sad Little World" by Incubus has been pretty fun. "New Skin" was always a fun song to play with a full band. "Deep Inside" is definitly a fun one to play alone. I dont learn many full songs any more because its pretty pointless unless my band is gonna cover it. I just learn the first part or the one riff I like and play it to warm up or something.

Martavius 04-14-2004 04:08 PM

Looks like I'm one of the old men around here.

Quote:

Name:Jonathan aka "Rainer"

Age:13
You've gotta be kidding me! :o I was nowhere near as mature as you seem to be at 13. Must be vitamins..... :lol:

Anyway....

Marty, aka Martavius

Age: 33

Years Playing: Roughly 16-17 and still learning

Current Guitar:
- Guild D412-NT acoustic 12-string
- Takamine EG330 C acoustic-electric 6-string
- El Cheapo Santa Rosa "classical" (that's a stretch. this is the guitar my 3-yr-old is allowed to play with ;) )

Amp:
- None. Well, there's a Crate we use as a monitor at church. Other than that I ,plug my A/E directly into the mixing board for the PA.

Effects:
- My hands :lol:

Longest It Took You Learn A Song: ?

What Song Was It: ?

Funnest Song To Play: Whatever I happen to be playing at any given time.

Wierdest Chord You Can Play: Define weird.

Favorite Chord: Any chord with the D note fretted at the third fret of the 2nd string. ;)

Dream Guitar: How much time have you got? I've always wanted a Martin (my namesake), but lately I really want a jumbo guitar. 2 reasons: A) I'm big - 6'4" tall; and B) I like to strum like there's no tomorrow at times :D ). Maybe a Guild JF30 with the Baggs iMix system intalled, or one of the high-end Larrivees with the B-Band a2.2 system. That Transperformance acoustic somebody linked a while back would be nice. More reallistically, I have a Washburn J28SCEDL jumbo acoustic-electric on order from Musician's Friend (Fiend?), if it ever gets here.

Your Style: G-C-Em-D ;) :D

Biggest Influence: I could never nail it down to one, but here are a few biggies (and I'm sure to forget somebody): Pink Floyd, Jerry Garcia, Beck, Thurston Moore / Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth (for the spirit of experimentation and disregard for conventions moreso than actual tone/style), Doc Watson, Jimmy Page.....

ApparentlyNothing 04-14-2004 04:19 PM

Ha, yeah I was thinking the same thing when I saw rainer was 13. I always thought he was older.... kinda makes me think where I would be now if I had started guitar at 10 like him or even at 13 instead of obsessing with sports..... *sigh* so many wasted years....

gg7 04-14-2004 10:43 PM

i'll answer some of these too i guess :)

name: jeremy

years playing: hard to answer. got my first guitar roughly 9 years ago. didn't get serious about it til later on though, took a foray into the world of electric 4 string bass for about a year playing it almost exclusively. also experimented with other instruments along the way. right now it's acoustic guitar the vast majority of the time.

guitar: my main one right now is my rainsong parlor.

can i play and sing? yes, but that doesn't mean i'm great at it ;)

gauge of strings: acoustic light

picks: medium to thin-medium

style: folk, folk-rock, acoustic-driven, folk mixed in with other stuff...

thud 04-15-2004 05:08 AM

Throw me in with gchord and the guy who wouldn't say his age.

thud - the sound of something falling
age - 43
years playing - 31 but still just learning
favorite guitars to play - son's B.C. Rich, daughter's Ovation
only guitar you youngsters would think is cool - '83 Gibson Flying V
strings - played em all - will play more
picks - " " " "
style - no longer important
looks - " " " "
musical philosophy - music's greatest innovators weren't good enough players to learn anybody elses stuff - they played from their hearts and identified with their audience.

I have the distinction of owning the loudest guitar amp of anybody here. It's an old 100W Carvin tube half-stack. When I was in a metal band I only had to turn it up to 1.5 to be heard over a Tama mahogany double kick drum kit. On 2 it causes injury!
