...so you won't embarrass your self.
Seriously, there are a couple of things that beginners or even the experienced do that make you chuckle a bit.
Anything is okay, list them.

Here are some:

1. play "Smoke on the Water" or "Burn"
2. repeat the same lick over and over again
3. play the major scale on the key of C


Keep listing.

Songs to not play:

"Crazy Train" beginning riff
Stairway to Heaven
Sweet Child o' Mine

Effin posers...they're good songs though.

Buying something before you check what the Sale dates are. I bought my wah 3 days before a 30% off sale.

Improvise on the Blues scale for 25 minutes...you may think you sound good...but it gets old after the first 2 minutes.

I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.

When you're at a music store, it's vitally important to not use the searchbar before you post a new thread.

You should never pretend to be retarded, have your friend go up and ask to use a guitar, and make the guy that works there demo it. Then acting retarded throw a fit to play and then school his ass! They tend to kick you out.
We all started at the bottom. Unless you were Hendrix. It is a fact that he popped out of his mom with a guitar in his hands. I've seen the video!

i tend to act retarded when young clerks help out, i see if they lie or give out false information on guitars and if they do it 3 times i shoo them away lol

don't sit down with a $4500 Taylor custom acoustic when you're an idiot with a huge belt buckle, and then stand up and gash the back of the guitar and walk away like nothing happened (yes, i saw this happen.)
#20
Don't have the amps turned up all the way and then you switch it on and it makes loud feedback throughout the store and you turn it off immediately...

Well, one thing would be going in without prior knowledge. Unless you get a guy who knows what he's talking about, you're gonna end up with something crap probably.

- Don't play the song if you can't play it. How many times have I seen people play the riff of Walk This Way and totally screw it up?

Do this, but stop at the leading note. It pisses people off to no end.

What you SHOULD do is play what you want and disregard the advice of strangers on an Internet forum.

Do not under any circumstances play deathcore. I saw a scenester walk into a Guitar Center, fringe haircut and everything. I was demoing a drumset when i saw him walk in. I later decided to go demo guitars, and then wished I hadn't when I heard DERK-DERK-DERK-SCREEE! DUN-DUN-DUNDUNDUN-DUN-DUN-WEEEOOOWOOO! Coming from the direction of August Burns Red boy-girl person.

AND NEVER PLAY DRAGONFORCE.

So you're saying that, even if the kid is buying a guitar to play Deathcore, he can't try it on the guitar he's playing?

So don't play deathcor if your a scenester...

And i'm pretty sure that if you were to play dragonforce you'd either be
A) Playing it so badly that that rule could go for all shred.
B) Playing it note for note, so you'd playing the guitar well.
