    Hmmm... Fits me. Except number 16. Does that make me not a guitarist?
    I took it as lampooning the idea of 'being a guitarist' because of certain things you do and thought it was hilarious
    Excluding a few points, this article doesn't identify a guitar player. It describes a cartel member.
    Thanks for wasting my time once again, UG.... I love the tabs but man your articles ares struggling to be pertinent and or just make any sense at all....
    I think the writer got the list for "You might have Schizophrenia if.." and "You might be a guitarist if..." mixed up.
    i seriously just wasted a minute of my life reading this garbage?
    Most of y'all seem to be lacking in the humour department. From #1 this was hilarious. Good job.
    Way Cool JR.
    Sorry, I accidentally up-voted. I have a great sense of humor and even I find this absolutely terrible.
