Mostly my fingers. They come up with the stuff I play and I pick the things that sound good, bad sounding things I don't pick then I guess, I play them with legato. Wink

But of course Hendrix, Yngwie, Satriani and even some traces of Tolkki as I started shredding along Stratosongs. Yes and from Romeo I got my way of tapping. Though my playing sounds very different from any of these, maybe closest to Satriani, weird in the same but different way. See, I do all the tricks without whammy bar Wink

Singing influences... Hmm, every good singer I've heard, too many to mention.

Same here. Wink Tolkki used to be the one that got me into guitar playing, but nowadays I just play what comes to my mind.
