Favorite bands :
Nirvana,Led Zeppelin,Metallica are top for me. Other than that I like pretty much everythings that's classic rock, heavy metal, thrash metal, blues, and some country.
Other than those main bands and the ones that are "built in" for a rocker, I do like some indie or non rock bands or projects like: Built to spill, Pavement, Bob Marley, Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, among others.
Favorite guitarists :
Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Jeff Loomis, Joe Satriani, Kirk Hammett, James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine, Dimebag Darrell, Chris Broderick, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Yngwie Malmsteem, and Kurt Cobain.
Favorite bassists :
Cliff Burton, Les Claypool, Krist Novaselic, some others but not sure of their names atm.
I'm 15, been playing since I was 13, started with a classical (nylon) guitar.
I now have a pretty decent acoustic (Alvarez) and a meh electric which is a Cort-G250 which is a guitar that I find extremely similar in tone and overall feel to a cheap Ibanez guitar I once tried out. I'm going to get a GOOD Ibanez pretty soon though And I also have two 50 watt amps(?) which must go into a preamp(again ?) and then I connect to my guitar into the preamp which has 7 inputs which I use to connect my microphone when I practice with my band, Heavy Truth.
