Who are your influences?

who did you rip your style from?

I'm "Self taught" but it's more like I brought a couple of books and a load of tabs and just went from there.

Smashing Pumpkins
Nirvana
RHCP
Pantera
Metallica
Rammstein
Machine Head
Black Sabbath
Stevie Ray Vaughan
David Pajo

Which ones are dodgy?

Dodgy as in "oh my fuck what are you doing?!" or dodgy as in "oh my fuck, that's odd!"?

You wouldn't have heard of my influences anyway

seriously though...i dont know. off the top of my head i guess chris cheney, malcolm young, brian setzer, scotty moore, danny gatton. stuff like that. really getting into some players like james muller and pat metheny now.

that could just as easily be a list of players i like. my "influences" change depending on my mood.

Yeah, I mean the start of a song like There's No Other Way is so fucking good. The only problem I currently have with Blur is that I have their albums saved onto my Xbox 360 and used to play Battlefield 2: Modern Combat constantly with it on, so all I can think of when I listen to them is playing that game

Dunno what my favourite Blur song would be, Good Song, Coffee and TV, This is a Low, Best Days, argh there's too many to choose from.

I'll have a look into that band

Hot Chip are great!

I cite them as a guitar influence because they slot guitar into a dance format without it becoming gay like pendulum
