are the coolest.
I talked to one farmer in work boots and dirty jeans who played some mean bluegrass and jumped right in when I played Redemption Song by Bob Marley.
And then this senile couple stopped in front of me while I was playing an american strat through a Vox AC30 and didn't leave until I played somethin they liked.

most of them just seem to be glad i'm not brutal...

Anyone else have any old people stories?

One time this old guy was jamming out with me in a guitar store and we played The Trooper together.

This old motherfucker gave me a mean look when i was trying an SG.
I was in a "test room" with a window, and he starred at me as I played.

So that would be a "No"

Quote by Cheesemaster
old guys are usually the best players at guitar center


Most likely because they have many years of playing experience.

I saw this old guy in bright green cordouroy (sp?) pants try to plug this Squier into a Marshall. He put took out the cord and put it in the headphone jack and got frustrated, so he bought a pack of strings instead.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup,
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns...

I jammed with some old guy. it was sweet. he was using a huge Conklin 7 string bass he just got fixed. looked like a boat.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Be careful how you talk about guys 50-55+ with beards. We may be lurking about at any time I have more fun with the young kids than the old guys.

The old guys are the best. I hate kids in there (what's sad is that I'm a kid.) I was playing with my friend one time in the acoustic room, and this couple was watching me and he's sitting next to me trying to play some Nirvana song (not succeeding) and afterwards he asked me, "Did you see those creeps staring at me and you? Did it scare you?" And I was thinking

Yeah, when I went in to get my bass/amp/pedal, some old black guy in a jazz hat was playing a semi-hollowbody guitar with a drum loop the whole time. He was good.

You can get warned for that now.

Anyways, the kids at Guitar Center always suck. They get annoying. There was once an old guy at a guitar shop like right across the street from the closest Guitar Center - 3 hours away. He was playing some awesome jazz. He even taught me some music theory!

I rarely play in GC, because I sucked. Went in for a minute or two with my friend the other day for the first time in like a year, played "Crystal Mountain", and some guy standing behind me starting head banging. So I guess I don't suck that bad anymore.
