Perhaps the Most Influential Artist in My Life is Robert Smith of The Cure~!

Wow, seeing that old Siouxsie & the Banshees on YouTube started giving me memories on how grateful I am to Robert Smith. I don't think he would ever realize just how much he has changed my life. I literally would be so lost in life without his influence.

I first picked up the guitar because of Robert Smith. I was so inspired by how he is able to turn such deep, profound and sometimes even dark feelings into a beautiful canvas of lush symphonies of ethereal tone that is so extraordinarily beautiful to listen to. I wanted to reproduce that art for myself, also so he inspired me to learn the guitar.

Fast forward about 3 years and I got heavy into the classical guitar because of the same thirst to seek beauty in tone. What got me heavy into it was when I bought a cheap 3$ classical guitar album with someone playing the Six Suites for Unaccompanied Violincello transcribed onto guitar. I was like, what the heck, it's only 3$ and I do need to listen to as many types of guitar music if I am ever going to master this instrument. I swear they actually sound better on the guitar then it does on the cello as if it was meant to be composed for the instrument. Bach is known to be so mathematically precise his melodies and harmonies. I listened to it stoned once and I swear I heard 5 different melodies I didn't hear before and a very complicated bass line to go with it. I swore that I would one day be able to play that entire album, which consists of Suite I and III BWV1007 and BWV1009 if you are ever curious on listening or learning it, and I learned both suites within a year because I was so motivated and practiced 12 hours a day to learn it!

Anyone else had his/her life changed and defined by listening to a similar artist?

An old postcard that I saved! Sweet, beautiful guitar that he probably painted himself.

I would have never intimately known the beauty of Clarita, my guitar, if it wasn't for the extraordinary man above.
