So who do you guys like to jam along to most?

I usually jam along to Red Sparowes to get the ideas flowing. Then once I come up with something I really like I'll turn off the music and let the riff carry me away.

Post a sample or a link to the bands' material so we can get a feel of the music you jam along to.

BB King. He's one of the few people that actually leaves some space for me to play in. :D

Hmm. This sounds like fun.
I'll go ahead and say first off that a lot of the stuff I play along with, and listen to for ideas and the likes comes from none other than classic videogames. Unorthadox as it may be, maybe I'll spark someone elses interests.

A lot of it translates really well to the guitar.
I'm a guitarist, and a gamer. A lot of old games have superb music, and it just doesn't really get any recognition.
There are a lot of reasons why I
I'll try to give some examples of what I mean.
Here's a midi from one of my favorite games, which also has great music.

The link doesn't complete so copying and pasting it in a blank browser window should open the file.

Here is a rendition of the same song, played on the guitar.
http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00206/ (Make sure if you listen, that you listen to the section between 2:40 to 3:05. You can be creative and write solos to "VGMusic" as well.)
Click the download tab, then one of the mirror links provided.
Files download fast from there, so don't worry about it taking forever.

So, I like to mess around with that kind of stuff and see where I can take it, it's like combining two loves.
Also, even though my main interest is in music from videogames. It's not the only area I'm interested.
Reading through the posts, I haven't seen one group, or artist whos music I don't enjoy listening to.
Anywho. Guess this also works as a heads up, that you may not recognize many of my recordings if you don't play videogames. (If I ever get around to recording anything that is >_<)

Hey Fretted Fingers, I used to learn songs from video games as well, and that Terra song was by far my favorite. It's really beautiful and I think it's the best videogame song ever :)
I used to play FFIII and FFVIII songs, as well as Wild Arms (the intro song kicks butt, you can listen to it here

), and of course, Zelda.

Now though I exclusively jam to blues and rock. Albert King, BB, Cream, Johnny Lang, you name it.

Status Quo, if I'm in the mood to boogie - any of several greatest hits compilations.
CCR, on the acoustic. I play mostly rhythm anyway, and CCR have plenty of great acoustic-friendly riffs to play along to.
A couple of favourite albums - Travelling Wilburys, the first album, and (since Demo Etc's recommendation last year...) The Stones, Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out.

:D :D :D
