    I was just reading another topic in here and it brought back some memory’s of when I first allowed music to grab me-

    I was 14 years old watching a Nirvana video tape (I loved nirvan back then)
    I was watching Kurt contain play aneurysm (my fav song back then) and it hit me that I could do that. I remember being so excited at the realization I called my father who had been a musician for years, and told him I wanted to learn. Soon after, I had my first love. Her name is Jessica and she is a Washburn D-15 acoustic. There have been many more lives, but Jessica has my heart-
    I still have her. Please share your memories, music is such a big part of my everyday life, I would love to hear all of your inspirations!

    I was so into nirvana as a youngn , I still listen to them on occasion, but not like I did.
    Went from nirvana to Sabbath, jethro till, Pink Floyd.... etc not sure what made the turn.

    Today I vary very broadly, a good song is a good song no mater what the genre or bad.

    I smashed three acoustic guitars before I learned to tune the damn thing.

    The guy in the guitar shop was not too pleased.

    Seriously, I was taken with Brian May's guitar solo in Queen's "It's A Kind of Magic." I taped the song off the radio and played it over and over.

    Then I thought I could play jazz. Because no one knows what the Hell you're doing with that stuff.

    A little. Used to go and see live jazz in pubs in East London. Mostly a Sunday afternoon thing.

  15. I had a failed attempt at learning guitar, as a boy, during the glam rock era, so I’d be about 10. It was the bands around at that time that were the inspiration, I suppose. Didn’t work out, anyway. Didn’t have the patience to work at it.
    Then when I was about 18, I’d been writing lyrics and wanted to learn to play, to turn my own lyrics into songs.
    As it happened, an older guy I knew wanted to get back into playing, and while he was relearning, he taught me some stuff..

    My biggest inspiration was not Skrillex, or Hardwell or some other huge artist. My biggest inspiration was my friend who introduced me to producing and started a few years before me.

    Being able to witness his improvement over the course of the years, and see him go from terrible at producing to damn near professional level through hard work and perseverance alone has been the biggest inspiration to me and my music.

    This work inspired me to learn the piano.
    My music teacher was not happy about me giving up the violin. He told me that the piano was a cross between a percussion instrument and a record player, where you just press a button and the music comes out.

    I'm fond of electronic music and Skrillex, Hardwell and David Guetta inspire me a lot! I even started learning how to make my own music on https://bluebuzzmusic.com. I check all tutorials, blogs and youtube channels about music production. Want to build a budget music studio in my house one day. That's my old dream.

    You should have asked him why he is teaching music instead of just sitting down at a piano and pressing a button to be the next Elton John.
