There’s a time in every young kid’s life when they look at an electric guitar and think, “wow that looks so cool”. Sometimes those thoughts lead to nothing more than a far away appreciation for guys who can shred. Sometimes they cause an unexplainable reaction that results in a total obsession with everything and everybody related to guitar playing. The great thing about it is that even if you never made it out of shredding alone in your bedroom, you still have that one thing in common with the guitar gods of the world. Take a look at Kirk Hammett from Metallica talking about the guitar influences and feelings that make him tick, and then go home and relive all of those emotions on your own axe.
