I'm looking for some good inspirational music. I was inspired to start playing by my dad so I don't know what most of the greats sound like and I think my playing is suffering from it.

Listen to Hendrix's Red House, if you want to get that blues feel. Learn it and it will be really usefull. I learned it, you will learn a lot of good little licks. Also listen to his music, to see how he voiced his chords and broke them up. What kind of music are you into?

Thanx, I'm into everything really. But I enjoy alternative music the most.

If your into Alternative music the most you show look into the Stone Temple Pilots. Their guitar work for alternative standards is amazing they use really freaky chords in some of their songs....scarry really fun as hell to play though.

if you like alternative try listening to some of the old pearl jam. pick up on mike mccreadys technique. ive been using his soloing for inspiration for about 6 of the 8 years ive been playing. try some hendrix too. he may not be alternative but hes knows how to rip it up on guitar

Not really top 5 because I like too many songs

1. Paganini 24, 5, and 16 Caprice (in that order)
2. Anything Yngwie Malmsteen but if I had to pick: I am a Viking
3. Anything Randy Rhoads but if I had to pick: Randy's live Suicide Solution solo from the tribute album)
4. Anything Zakk but if I had to pick: His version of Crazy Train, and hate your guts (Pride and glory).
5. Dimebag Darrel: Cowboys from hell and cemetary gates

Anything Michael Angelo

I started learning guitar because of Randy Rhoads..but Yngwie J. Malmsteen is my biggest influence.

Ya well I haven't played long enough to get a huge collection of songs that I can play very well. Plus, my guitar teacher spends like 2 months on each song that I learn, so I'll just list the ones I know (this is acoustic).
1. 4 and 20 years ago by dude I really don't know
2. the wizard by uriah heep
3. oh **** I forgot what it's called by extreme
4. dead or alive by bon jovi
5. teach your children well

Go ahead and add Judas Priest's Painkiller to it. That song pretty much sums up what true heavy metal should sound like.

If you guys want somthing heavy, wicked and extremly sick, just listen to Messugah (spelling) from Sweden. These guys are music psychos and they are best in the world in doing that. However I don´t like but it´s cool in a way.

If you are truly a beginner then I would recommend that you start with some of Nirvana's stuff. I also like just about all music (jazz, blues, classical, rock, hard rock, metal, heavy metal, alternative, thrash, etc...) and I think that Kurt Cobain ripped on that Fender Strat with some of the simplest yet coolest licks you could ever play. A little bit of the right crunch and the right kind of power and you are on your way...

Have fun!

1-Time-Pink Floyd(even though the solo is easy, it sounds perfect for the song)
2-Sympathy For The Devil-The Rolling Stones
3-Stairway To Heaven-Led Zeppelin(the entire point of the song is the guitar)
4-Good Riddance-Green Day(just a catchy tune)
5-And almost anything from Keith Richards, David Gilmour, and Jimi hendrix

my inspirations stay mainly in metal and punk, some alternative stuff i guess.
I love Jimi Hendrix, but i dont' try to play like him at all, i'm just constantly in awe of him collosal talents.
I can't get enough of Randy Rhoads, i definitely suggest trying out the Ozzy good stuff he did avec Randy. I suggest "Crazy Train", "Over the Mountain"(i really only like the solo), and "Mr.Crowley" as starters.
Ozzy also did some work with Jake E. Lee, i suggest "Bark At The Moon" to sample his brilliance.
also, early Metallica have great soloing and riffing capabilities that definitely inspire.
i love punk energy and rhythms and the whole life behind it.
I would suggest Pennywise and any one of their six albums, i might suggest their latest one "Land of the Free?" but any one is great work.
Blink 182 is always good. anything, Enema of the State, The Mark Tom and Travis Show, but Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is too mainstream pour moi.
hope i helped a bit, i just love all metal mostly. oldschool had the riffs and solos that made it all possibe, so check out Ozzy and early Metallica and definitely Black Sabbath.
Thanks for listening to this small piece of me.
