What can I say, I have been playing the guitar for quite a while. I guess my main inspiration would have to be the movie Desperado where Antonio Banderas plays the guitar at the beginning. Ever since I saw that movie, I was eager to learn how to play the guitar. I got my first crappy 5 cent guitar when I was thirteen. It was such a piece of crap that I didn't even play it until the next year when a friend of mine taught me how to play Romanza on it. Then, after I heard a few songs by Eric Clapton, I was real eager to learn how to play like him. So I learned a few songs by him. As the years progressed I was inspired by such artist like Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Frusciante, John Mayer, and Santana. All these great guitarist have paved a way for me to become a better guitar player.
