I got my sister pregnant once. Yeah, that was awkward, but mostly because she's 6 years younger than me.

Murderface uses his pen15...or you could try using a pick to hit the strings/...kinda abstract I know.

Man, be creative.

Jimi didn't ask people if he should play with his teeth. He just did it.

First of all, this doesn't matter.

Second, if you really want to find something "cool" to do, you have to make it up yourself. Just think out of the ordinary. But i really don't see what this would have to do with making good music.

Totally agree with this guy.

I just realised...what the Hell is this doing in Gear and Guitar Accessories?
Shouldn't this be in Guitar Techniques?

how about trying to play with skill? playing cleanly with good technique and good timing?

You could try tapping with your clit ring?

Ha, clit, I bet that comes through just fine on the forums, while **** and **** don't.

I like to do this thing where I use fingers 2 and 4 to move 5ths very rapidly, versus just moving the shape up, with fingers 1 and 3. It can be fun I guess, especially if you like death metal.

Pull a Michael Angelo Batio. Halfway through a song, rapidly swap from playing with your hand coming around the far side of the neck to going around the top side. Watch his Speed Kills video and you'll see what I'm talking about. Guaranteed instant popularity, so long as you're doing it around people who aren't experienced guitarists. Easiest trick in the book.

I've always wanted to try swapping hands and doing eight finger tapping using my right hand towards the headstock and left towards the bridge. Just for the retardedly complex look. The more moronic and difficult it looks, the more star power you just deployed.

Now rock. Rock until the rock starts rockin the rock on your rockin' rock.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.
