i thought it'd be fun to share what bugs us most about guitar shopping, like manipulative salemen, loud show-offs....etc.

personally, i hate those people who go into the store and try to impress everyone with quick riffs and shredding, not realizing that the salespeople have probably heard every run in the book.

I always get riff amnesia.
And like you said.. I always get shown up by the dudes shreddin with the volume on 6

Hell, one time I walked into the acoustic part in guitar center.
I was playing Dee by Randy Rhoads and some dude starts strummin harder than I've ever seen on an acoustic.
I couldn't even hear myself =[

why do they have to take a break? or strum a power chord? you realize EVH did this exact same thing for hours a day right? do you hate him too?
just because theyre shredding doesnt ALWAYS mean theyre showing off you know.

sales people (usually), not knowing what to play, and being self conscious when testing.

I play with a lot of effects. People usually tell me to "turn down the reverb, and up the gain."

thank you for making my day sir.

The salesmen that try to get you to plug into ****, and tell you things that are completely false. There's a ****load of them.

i also hate those kids that plug into SG's and think they are the most brutal **** since Obama because they can play the before i forget intro. Grow some balls, kiddies.

Deciding which one to buy, it took me literally two months to decided what guitar I was going to buy last time I bought one. I ended up with a '96 Les Paul which was a gutar I had initially said no I don't want one because the only LP's I had played were the new ****ty faded ones but this one was gorgeous... If I could I would take them all home

You're an idiot. I'm not saying "0Mgz 4ll d3y d0 1z shr3dz pl4y sum c0rds 0loo0olo0olol"

I'm saying it gets on everybody's nerves when you are the loudest guy in the store and you shred non stop. It's not pleasing to listen to when you're trying to test out a 15 watt fender deluxe...

I didn't say they were showing off. i said it's irritating.

i did read it, and it seems like you hate people who dont play power chords and dont take breaks for extended periods of time, just because "you dont like it". i hate your avatar, but am i sh*tting bricks and whining about it in a thread? no.

Quote by Mean Mr Mustard
I get paranoid if anybody else can hear me, so I turn the volume down really low


this happens to me a lot, one time I was trying out an amp ant the guy was like "to get a good sound you've got to get some volume on this thing" *he promptly cranks the amp* I played one note and was like "Ok I'm done with this one."

I'm better with it now that I can come up with a decent but humble thing too play while a try things out.

bugger off. you're irritating now. the whole thread is about things you don't like in guitar stores. I stated mine. don't like it? tough, fuck you.

the whole thing about power chords should be read as "these guys can't even take a break and maybe play a chord or 2 or something"
grow the hell up asshole. I know it feels cool to be tough on the internet, but nobody else really cares.


let me rephrase the whole thing that way you can understand it and get the hell off my back.


"Shredders


I can't stand when i go into a store and there is some dude with an obnoxiously loud amp shredding obnoxiously fast, with no rhythm or anything, for an obnoxiously long amount of time, while there are other people in the store trying to do their own thing, but are being overpowered by this one guy sitting there fret wanking for 40 minutes with a 100 watt amp cranked up to 7."


get it now?

I don't like you at the moment.


Is he not allowed to hate people who shred alot? That's like telling me that I can't be attracted to women, or that I can't play basketball aimlessly in my driveway in order to procrastinate doing something important.


Because no matter how many times you could tell me these things on the internet, it won't matter, because I will do them anyway, and you will make yourself look like a very grumpy individual for trying to argue with me about it.

I can't even believe this shit. are you just trying to pick a fight or something, but don't really care if the post in question is argumentative? go read my edit, and then come back and discuss like a normal person who isn't disgruntled and illiterate.
I can't even believe i've just been attacked for a personal dislike, and then told i shouldn't voice these dislikes IN A THREAD ABOUT DISLIKES.

seriously man... figure out this whole "opinion" thing. you'll be happier.

You really don't get it, do you? People shredding at loud volume can be very annoying. Even if you're a shred fanatic, if you came to a shop to test out a guitar, but you can't hear a damn thing over some idiot playing loudly, then it gets annoying.

Also, the main problem people have with you is you attacking the guy for no reason, and then responding only to certain parts of people's responses and ignoring the rest. People are entitled to their opinions. Except you. Change that avatar, damnit.

im not disgruntled. illiterate? maybe. but disgruntled, no. im just trying to say that nobody is a d*ck just because they shred nonstop in GC. nobody HAS to take a break or play a powerchord. and ive noticed that most of the people who shred like that are friends w/ the owner of said shop or friends w/ the workers there, and theyre more or less just hanging out.
