I loved guitar like crazy but never played as a kid. I started playing bass at 14 (many moons ago) and what got me into guitar was a combination of good 80's music such as

- King Kong - Frank Zappa
- Call it Sleep - Steve Vai (never sure whether that made me want to give up as it was too good)
- Home - PiL (Vai again - breathtaking)
- Yngwie Malmsteen - Trilogy Suite - ok he is one bloated alky, but he can play
- Stevie Ray Vaughan - Change It - great song
-  Tal Farlow and Django Reinhart - I got a couple of albums when my grandad died: if you like music jazz gets you in then end.

I actually just remembered it wasnt that Santana song which sparked my interest in guitar! It was Beat It by Michael Jackson! I always used to put it in my tape player and just fast forward to the solo :lol: Is it evh on the recording? Sounds a lot like him..

Eddie on the Solo, Steve Lukather on the rhythm. To me it's Eddie's best solo on a studio recording, and I read once that it was actually a warm up that they recorded without him knowing, and they kept it as final take.

Adorable ...

I agree with that, its my favourite solo by Ed. Gotta learn it sometime, or at least try and fail  :P

Hunter: nice recommendation for the iBreathemusic site. I had never heard of it, but it is very good. Thanks.
