Post influences that started off by accident
had a thought, how and who did you guys get into on the guitar in an odd way? here are mine

Paul Gilbert - a magazine (guitar player) with a flexi disc of 'scarified' was left in my grandmas old folks home! seriously!

Gary Moore - saw aclip on tv in 1985 of him demoing a Boss DS1 and a strat.

Yngwie - saw a tab of 'disciples of hell' and bought 'marching out' to hear it

any YOU have that are funny?

EVH: I had my alarm clock set on the radio, and one day Eruption was JUST starting as I woke up... I thought it was too good, and I'm like "WTF was that", then they said "there is Eruption, from Van Halen, this morning to wake you up!" :lol:

Not how I got into Eddie, but the same thing happened to me at four in the morning back when I was swimming.

Unfortunately I don't really have any stories like this.

my dad is an avid motorcycle rider. When I was very young, he would play the beginning of Hot for Teacher because the drums sounded like a motorcycle. I would rarely hear it play before where the solo would cut in. One day I heard Eddie kick in with that tapping lick and freaked out and picked up a guitar. From that day on, I've tried to play guitar as obnoxious as possible. Because thats why the electric guitar was invented.

When I was about 14 or so, I used to babysit for our neighbors accross the street for some extra cash.
The kids were grade-school age, and their parents were serious goody-two-shoes! Only let their kids watch "Mr. Rodger's Neighborhood", etc.
So I turned on this local rock station to give the kids a little culture, & they played "Over the Mountain" from Ozzy! I heard some of his other stuff before, but that one floored me!
I think it was probably brand new, at the time.

Post Re: influences that started off by accident
It all started with Queen, whom I was introduced to by a friend of mine in 2002.. then I discovered almost everything I know searching for music (for example, Brian May quoted EVH as a great player, so I gave EVH a listen, then he said Holsdworth was great, and I bought some Holdsworth stuff, and so on..).

PG was introduced to me by accident, in fact when I play the guitar I pick like PG.. same wrist's motions (but I'm not good as he is, heheh!).
Everyday I thank my guitar teacher, Gianluca Ferro, for the precious hint..

I'm sure there is at least one person who was introduced to PG and Racer X like you did :wink:

My sister gave me a Jimi Hendrix CD as a present when I was a kid and totally not into any form of music. I didn't really like it at first but I listened to it because it was a present from my elder sister and felt like I should give it a try. Eventually songs like "Freedom", "Room Full Of Mirors" and "Dolly Dagger" started to grow on me... but it still wasn't metal enough for my tastes. I think I understood the funky vibe of Jimi Hendrix's music much later.

I discovered Paco De Lucia, John Mc Laughlin and Al Di Meola the same way when my brother in law gave me a CD (which is called "The Guitar Trio" I think... the name is not on the CD case)

I pretty much really discovered Judas Priest when I decided to buy the Metalogy Boxset. It's really weird when the first thing you buy from a band is the entire boxset which cost like 5 or 6 CDs. I had only listened to a couple of their songs off Angel Of Retribution before that. I really just bought the metalogy boxset because it was the boxset of a band I heard was a heavy metal giant, it's totally not because I was die hard Judas Priest fan or anything... Retrospectively: I made a pretty fucking damn good decision that day 8)

That's pretty much it though... I've pretty much been an avid music hunter and didn't really have the occasion to accidentally discover music.

i hated solos, hated metal, hated anything but punk, hardcore, and some indie.

one of my friends from a message board devoted to a japanese pop band posted a clip of himself playing trilogy suite - i was absolutely floored.

while youtubing every yngwie video i could, i stumbled across a man in a space suit..
