Everytime I see a group of people (doesn't really matter who, it's pretty much anyone) watching some video or performance of some amazing guitar player playing something that's absolutely breathtaking, I always hear people say 'oh I bet he has no life'.

Has it honestly come to the point that if you're good at your instrument you're labeled as some sort of loser shut-in?

What the ****. It just pisses me off every time.. Now-a-days you can't do anything really well without some stupid dick saying 'he has no life' or something along those lines.

Anyone else agree?

It's their jealousy, not yours, they posses the jealousy.

Technically it's right in that context?

Who cares? You don't play guitar so people will think you're cool. That's what you start smoking for.

Yea, people say that about me x_x...."Brandon you have no life, all you do is play your bass and your guitar.." Me: "Nahh I got more of a life than you *insert long WoW making fun of rant because 90% of grade 10s at my school play WoW and thats all they do)"

If you hung out with people who played guitar, then you wouldn't see this.

ive noticed this too but honestly, i dont care much. Why should it matter, you play better than them, don't you? Hopefully you have a life on the side to prove them wrong


Saying the Red Hot Chili Peppers have no talent is like saying Guy Fawkes didn't have an epic mustache.
#26
They are just jealous.

However, when people say stuff like that, it is often true. many people who are amazing at their instrument are shut-ins.

That doesn't mean that the people who say it aren't jealous.
#28
You guys care if it's "cool"? I thought most people on UG got into guitar through someone else, not because they thought it would help them fit in better...

I originally got into guitar when I was 9 purely for sweet rock licks.

Not songs, just riffs.
#31
i play guitar for my self and no one else. i write more songs then i learn and i have never thought of it effect how people look at me. it your playing guitar to be noticed or wat ever then ur playing for the wrong reasons. music is an expression and the only thing you should be expressing is urself
#32
Lol since when was guitar meant to be "cool" in the first place. by the way if you're considered to having no life, that doesn't make you "uncool" either

It's there jealous, because it's not you who is jealous, but rather the jealous is over there, presumably in the minds of the other people.
