*Jonas Brothers comes on*
Can you play this.
No.
Awh...

Seriously, ever since I played in the talent show, I get this. And I played Trivium and August Burns Red. And Thunderhorse as an encore.


i always listen a couple second say its way to boring they call me on bs i play the same three chords everyone these days uses looking bored as hell unplug do some tapping arpegios over the chords (still bored) then i lay down close my eyesand start snoring to the melody

whenever i play an obscura/early metallica/carcass/death/whatever technical metal song, people always ask me to play jonas brothers or some other dumb crap. it really does get on your nerves. (i played incarnated, blackened, and blind bleeding the blind for a talent show, and afterwords a bunch of people asked if i could play sos and paranoid, and i was like "sabbath?" and then, "no the jonas brothers! whats sabbath?")
#166
Did you actually play that?

I still think the question 'Do you play acoustic or electric?' is valid. There are people who focus on just acoustic guitar, and there are others that just play electric.

if they havent seen your guitar or you playing then i fully understand this statement. how are they meant to know unless theyve seen it.

"Heh, did you pick bass 'cuz it's got less strings and easier?" "Yea, I bet guitar was too hard for ya,"

No, dickweed, less strings does not mean less difficulty.

I have to go with the "Do you play electric of acoustic?". Someone mentioned that it's valid because some people focus on one over the other, but I don't really agree that they are two distinguishing categories. Either way it's still playing guitar.

I'll never forget this comment I heard one day when I was seen playing my acoustic guitar. "Oh you play acoustic guitar too".

bass players deserve a **** load more respect. the other day i was talking to my mate about bass guitars and he was saying **** like 'you can't spell bass without ass' and it seriously pisses me off. i play an electric so im not some pissed off bass player but without bass most songs sound incredibly ****, just cause they arent flamboyent and dont show off as much doesnt make them worse musicians.

i get the "can you play (guitar hero song)?" question a lot, its almost always One by Metallica.

also a friend of mine asked me to teach him Sweet Child o mine and about 5 other songs knowing he had never picked up a guitar before in his life. but he was good at guitar hero so he thought he could do it.....

This one time I got mad at a kid for asking me a question about something that I didn't know myself until I started playing guitar so I yelled at him.

Oh, and this other time I got mad and made up a story about another kid asking me a stereotypical question that guitarists say they hear but really don't.

As many others have said:

-Do you play electric or acoustic?
-How good are you? Can you play fast?
-Can you play with one hand?
-Can you sound like Buckethead?
-Can you do that sound Zakk Wylde does?
-Does your guitar have a whammy bar?
-Can you play (one of the following): Smoke on the Water, Iron Man, Crazy Train, Enter Sandman, Thunderstruck, Back In Black, Highway to Hell, Sweet Home Alabama, Sweet Child of Mine, Stairway to Heaven, any guitar hero song, or some other stupid song.
-Do you have distortion on your guitar?
-Can I try your guitar? or people sometimes don't even ask and strums all the strings over and over again, and move the whammy bar side to side instead of pushing down, then says my guitar sucks.

Or just stupid things people tell you:

Noob: Yeah, I have a Fender Strat.
Me: Oh cool! What model?
Noob: Uhhh...I don't know.
Me: Well, how much did you pay?
Noob: Ummm 300 dollars, and it came with an amp and everything!
Me: So it's not a Fender. It's probably a Squier.
Noob: Yeah, same thing. Whatever.

Or

Me: You play guitar? What guitar is it?
Noob: Uhh idk. It's the kind [enter guitarist's name here] uses.

Or

My guitar is better than yours! [Enter guitarist's name here] uses it.

The dumbest thing I've had is a girl I brought home after a night out asking why what my amplifier was. I explained to her it was what electric guitars need in order to make sound (putting it simply).

She then asked, "So... guitars can't make those sounds normally? Oh! I thought people just played guitars differently to make different sounds"

Lets just say she slept in the sofa in the living room :|

a few days after i asked him how the guitar felt while playing,

he said "oh its great theres just one problem, i cant find the slot for the whammy bar"

Quote by Shredder Guitar
I'm really allowed to say as i want, i wasn't insulting you.

And "screamo," as you so bluntly put it, wouldn't have sweeping in it. I was just saying.

It's not like i would say "Oh, you play blues. You must be black."



i didn't imply you were insulting me, but in American dictation,as you should know, that word has romantic meaning rather then the way "dude" has. accept where you live and deal with it.

how can you really say that screamo has no sweeping? have you heard every screamo song? you can't honestly make such a generalization....my statement was an example.

"Do you play electric or acoustic?"


I don't think that's such a stupid question... if someone random joe who knows nothing about guitar asks you it along with all his friends I can see how it would get annoying but from one guitarist to another and in the context of "which do you prefer?" then I think it's a very valid question.

Why didn't you get a guitar with a whammy bar?

Because I didn't want a whammy bar, why is that such a big deal to people?
