OK so I'm gonna say 2.

Ok so i was talking to one of my friends who thinks he so good at guitar and is all showoffy and stuff so he make excuses for himself and stuff.

So just to see what he says i say:

Me: Hey what you think is better for guitar long or short fingers (knowing long is better and he has short i wanted to see what he says)
Him: Well long fingers better for sweeping but short is better for shredding.

Next one:

I went to that same kids guitar lesson. His teacher has guitar hero out. He said "You should buy this game and play the songs you are trying to learn on the game. It helps."

What have you guys heard?

i don't know if this fits what you are asking...

but I really hate it (especially on forums or youtube comments) when someone says a certain band is this genre, and next thing you know there are 5 comments on it, and the people sound like they are ready to shoot someone because I called opeth melodic metal when they are in fact death metal. who really cares?

They're just trying to pump the crowd up, I would much rather have the lead say lame things than have no stage presence.

When a guitarist you're trying to work with, plays a riff, then plays it again a different way....then again, a different way.
And says, "Have you got it?"

Of course I haven't got it you stupid prick, you play it different each time. Pisses me off.

How would it not? It singles out the guitar part and builds (or at least maintains) finger dexterity. Spending all the money to buy the game seems a bit far-fetched for the small benefits though.

Dammit I was gonna say that.

Personally, I've none that I can remember off the top of my head but if I can come up with one I will.

Oh, just remembered one my bassist told me:

Me: "Natural Harmonics are at the 5th, 7th, 9th, and 12th fret I'm certain of. I know there're probably more."
Bassist: "Dude, my fretless bass has natural harmonics all over the fretboard."

"Modern music sucks" - Bob Dylan

Not sure if I'd actually call him a musician though. A disemboweled car impersonator, maybe.

Edit: I just realized that I put "disemboweled car" instead of "disemboweled cat" which was what I had meant to write, but I'm leaving it because I think it's funny.

"So you're looking at a good practice amp for playing metal? Well we have Spider III's right over here..." Some salesman at best buy. Being the drummer of a sick local deathcore band you'd think he'd know better. Well he is a drummer I guess.

I'm not disagreeing with you about that being a stupid quote, but when did you say that?

I assume you mean "when did he say that?"

It was in an interview with Rolling Stone or something, I think. Probably not verbatim, either, but he definitely said something to that effect, at which point I refused to ever listen to his "music" again.

Sorry, long day. I'm pretty out of it.

I don't blame you, that's pretty dickish of him.

He has said it several times, I've read Dylan say that in a Rolling Stone years ago and here's a slightly more recent article where he says the same thing;
