Well am 18, Im Scottish/Irish and am a self-taught Metal guitarist.
My life is just controlled by guitar now. Instead of listening to music in general im always listening to the guitar work and wondering weather i could play it. I get my inspiration from going to gigs and seeing bands like Slipknot and Cannibal Corpse. Slipknot are definitely my favorite band but most of my guitar playing inspiration comes from Machine Head and Trivium. I find Matt Heafy (Trivium) very inspirational as he was my age and he wanted to be a famous guitarist, so he worked for it and now he's in one of the most successful bands in the whole metal scene. I would love to make guitar my life however my main drawback is that i just can't get myself a band as i live in a small town and all the 'metal' people i know don't really play instrumentsor anything that is similar that matches up to the sort of fast stuff i play. (am no being cocky but i mean as in drummer wise. ie Metal drums are incredibly hard to learn).
The advice i would give to any starting guitarist is DO NOT GIVE UP! Also the ladies love guitarists =]. If you wanna know more I have bebo and msn so just ask. =]
