Jeff Beck, Tomo Fujita, and Agata (of Melt Banana) when it comes to guitar, and Flea and Jaco Pastorius when I'm playing bass.

...

Go me for mentioning people nobody else did *originality dance*

And the prize for the most obvious statement goes to OWA. :wink:

Awesome! Two prizes in two days.........no wait.........three prizes!

I'd have to say my biggest influence is Kurt Cobain. He's even made me want a Fender Jaguar.

My influences? Anyone I've ever heard and enjoyed....

My biggest influence, though, has to be ME....I want to play guitar in my own style, so the songs I hear in my head come out the same way through my fingers....

About time I started influencing myself....

:D :D :D

Brian May - he doesn't get enough credit IMHO - and Alex Lifeson. A little bit of Slash, too.

There's less differentiation in the classical world - most people sound the same - so I don't have anybody from that side of my playing to mention.

Best,

Have to say first and foremost Øistein Sunde - fantastic norwegian guitar player! Unfortunately (for him!?) his songs are in norwegian only - however, some of his instrumental stuff is terrific too!

also EC, Mark Knopfler and more recently Robbie Robertson are important - not in the sense that I'll ever play like them, but because they remind me how cool guitar can be!

Oh - Mike Bloomfield together with Dylan in the mid 1960s too!!

Lars

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...
