while I was Sitting in class today, staring off into space while my teacher talked about transportation during Geography, I thought, you know what,I am bringing my guitar tomorrow. so is there any songs I should learn last minute that'll impress people.and what do you do if people start mobbing you while your playing?


I am good in where I live but here on UG, I am classified as an intermediate player, becuase I can play any songs that say Intermediate Difficulty, so good and reletivly easy songs would do the trick

around here, we call guys like that chordsharks,
because they sit out front and play 3 chords on
an acoustic and girls flock to them like they're f*cking jimmy page
theres like 10 people tht do that at my school

i'll add an exception, a friend of mine last year would never have lunch money, so he'd bring his acoustic and sit next to the lunch line and take requests, then get food with the money and go somewhere and play

haha i remember one of my friends brought his guitar to school and everyone was like "whoah" when he played raining blood after people asked him, and then he started doing like a bunch of shredding improvisation, stuff that included some pretty damn good sweep picking, but none of the kids where impressed by it. haha the only reason they knew about raining blood was guitar hero, tisk tisk. people are idiots.

edit: i know no one knows that friend of mine but i dont want him to seem like a douche, so let me make it clear that the guitar wasnt his, but another kids, who in fact is one of those douche bags who tries to look cool by carrying a guitar around. my friend only played because of the requests of others.

Bringing a guitar to impress people... you should give up the guitar right now. Seriously. If that's why you want to bring it, you will make a lot of enemies.

The only reason I would bring my guitar to school is to practice during the day because I had hours of break time and it was spent practicing or learning stuff from other guitarists there.

Song to learn? How about Suicide is Painless (MASH theme). And then take it as some advice maybe... because you shouldn't learn music to "Show off." Its an art, its fun, its you, not "Hea look I'm cool." Seriously.

Don't bring your guitar to school to impress people.If it's a gibson,fender or other high end brand you will look like a poser.Likewise squier will do the same.For some reason only the mid range guitar won't make you look like a poser.
Btw I took my guitar to school the other day because I was going to a friends house after school for practice and had a gig the next day.I got kinda distracted from my school work cos I kept on thinkng 'has it been stolen? has someone knocked it over?'

See, that's smart. That's prostituting for a worthy purpose (Yeah I know its an oxymoron but it sounds funnier). Seriously, whenever a bunch of us guitarists bring it its to show each other what we can do and we learn off of each other. We all play different things. I know mostly chords from acoustic and they know mostly riffs and stuff from playing electric. I bring my acoustic and teach them stuff, and I learn other things off of them. Its not "I'm better" or "Look at how cool I am." Its like "Here I'll teach you this" and "I'll teach you that" so we all get better and increase our skill.

You had best reconsider why your bringing it.
#23
I suggest don't.

If you do, play it in private. People WILL think you're a prick/poser.

ummmmm if you are trying to get girls and impress people because you have no other friends, learn poopular songs that for some reason drive preps nuts (wonderwall, creep, etc...)

otherwise just play what you feel like


are you bringing electric or acoustic

You really shouldn't play to impress people. Play because you enjoy playing, not just because you want to score with girls and look cool.
Not only that, but you'll look like an idiot if you don't have a real reason to bring it to school.
#37
thanks asswipe, people like you make me look stupid. i have guitar lessons after school so in the morning i bring my guitar in the band room, leave it in the instrument room (locked), and pick it up on the way out of school, i never take it out of the case but people still give me weird looks and talk **** about me for it.


thanks

Tell that to Slash.

Sophmore through senior year Slash failed for skipping class. You know why? everyday all day he would be playing guitar under the bleachers in the gym.

Of course he wasnt trying to impress anyone. you sir...

I SAID GOOD DAY SIR!

ya fieyad

Btw i bring my guitar to school sometimes, just to jam during lunch. i dont sit there plaing what people wanna here. I just have fun with it. Eventually a group of people form around look over, call you a poser, say it isnt gonna get you chicks. I just ignore them and keep playing.
