Hello fellow guitarists. I've finally found a place where I can share my knowledge and gain some in the process!
My name is Darryl and I started playing guitar at the age of 10. One of my older brothers had been playing guitar and I used to watch him and observe. Eventually, I felt I could handle playing. I only seriously started getting into the guitar at the age of 13 and by that point, I was hooked.
Having three older brothers and two musical parents in the house meant a lot of different music was around me, from country to punk to ethnic.
My main influences from a guitarist's point of view include (in order of musical impact): George Lynch, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eddie Van Halen, John Petrucci, Buckethead, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Al di Meola, Ravi Shankar (close enough to guiatar player!), Andreas Segovia, Paco de Lucia, and too many more to list here.
