I was in GAK today and picked up a pedal and heard some guy trying out like a £1000 gibson and playing, dare i say it, smoke on the water.

so which songs do you think should be illegal from being played in music shops?
#2
None. Smoke on the Water is a good song, maybe it's his favourite?

1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

I don't even really play songs when I try out a guitar. I just do a few chord progressions and go trough a few scales. Nobody is interested in seeing some guy showing off anyway.
Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch

I dunno maybe he's just testing the tone if you know what I mean.

Smoke on the water isn't played fast, so you can hear the sustain etc...

I always hate the retarded 14-year old who trys to impress people with his ****ty, out of tune/off tempo version of shred.
#14

All songs should be banned...

Trying out a guitar should be limited to improvised doodling only

I hate it when a 13 year old noob takes a BC Rich off the stand, cranks up the line 6 to Uber metal and plays that song...

If I had a dollar for everytime that happened...
#18
Some people just like that song what's wrong with that.
It's annoying if they only play that riff for half an hour but if he only plays it once or twice I don't see where the problem is.The same thing with stairway , that's a nice song so why can't we play it when we check out a guitar?

I'm not saying that i don't like the song in any way, it's a good song, it was just that seeing him show off to his friend, and saying that he was the best, and to hear it drone on...
#22
Well if he keeps playing it and sais he's the best that's annoying.
By the way
does anyone else notice that people who tell other people that they are 'the best' at playing guitar usually suck at it. They just do the out of tune/time shredding and know nothing about theory.

But seriously, why should there be songs illegal from being played in music shops? What if like all the members from Deep Purple went to get some new gear and they played Smoke On The Water. You're gonna tell me you're gonna go in there and be like "lulnoobz, i leanered thit sung when i's wuz lik...2." No. You'd be like, "SSSHHIIITTT!!!!! DEEP PURPLE!!! "

No songs are illegal! Harumph!
#24
yes yes yes yes!!!

there is this boy in my class who has an ibanez gio and randomly does fast tapping so immediately everyone adores him...
#25
What's so wrong about trying Smoke On The Water? It's an awesome and simple riff that doesn't require any effects and give you a great hear on how 5th single octave chords sound.

When I get a new guitar, I'll go there and playing Stairway, Smoke, and Sweet Child because of people like you.


Anyway, you shall not play Dream Theater, Symphony X, Shawn Lane, and Angra stuff. You may make the staff heads explode.

I never play actual songs, unless they're fairly obscure. I improvise mostly. I learned my lesson after playing a couple Steve Vai songs and then having a GC salesman recognize them and try to sell me a Spider because "you can get a good Steve Vai tone."

This. There is nothing wrong with Smoke On The Water, and if someone is playing something simple it doesn't mean that he must be a bad player. Maybe he was the best guitarist ever, but didn't feel like playing complex stuffs, who know?

Smoke on the Water is damn cool if they play the solo.

The only time a song should be banned is when that particular song gets overplayed and monotonous, and even then it should only be from that one person and not for the whole store. In other words, someone who's playing the same thing over and over again for more than a few minutes need to be asked to stop.
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?
#33
I have only been in a small guitar store were you couldn't play anything anyway. I have also only seen one other guitarist up close playing, so I would love to see another guitarist to play any song or riffs

You certainly do... You're use (or lack thereof) of punctuation and ting hurt my brain.

there are no forbidden songs! everyone should play what they like a guitar shop is not a dictatorship. On the other hand I would hate it if someone who is only playing for some months would turn up the volume and floor the distortion and pull off some out of tune wankery
