I searched, didn't find anything in the first 5 pages so...

I think it's kind of self-explanatory.

You know you're a guitarist when...
-you can talk about lubrication, nuts, and fingering with a straight face.
-you order a gin pentatonic at a bar.
-your girlfriend got a new G-Sting and you ask “phosphor bronze or nickel wound?”
-you fail math class, but you've memorized the equations for converting tube wattage ratings into solid state.
-you are dreaming about your next amp while unpacking the one that just arrived today.
-you try to match the pitch of your guitar with a vacuum cleaner.
-you can sing guitar solos.
-you go to a party at someone's house, find the guitar that nobody ever plays, tune it by ear, complain about how old the strings are and take requests for the rest of the night.

When you make fun of bassists but still cannot explain the major scale.

You ignorant guitarists.

When you can play the guitar.

More seriously:
When you can put out cigarettes with your fretting fingers.
When you make lifestyle changes around playing your guitar.
When you think of song ideas when you aren't playing guitar.

You're a pretentious twat that tells everyone music is your life and will haughtily dismiss any pursuit that doesn't involve music.
Quote by Vornik
Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

When you poke the tips of your fingers on your fretting hand with sharp things and feel no pain.

or when you poke a finger on your fretting hand and immediately scream "Dammit, I play guitar with that hand!".

or is that just me?

I seem to remember that one of the best things in the previous threads on this topic was that you know you're a guitarist when your fingertips smell of nickel.

I've literally never done anything of those things. I don't think anyone really does any of those things.

You know you are a guitarist when you make a living playing guitar.
AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitutes.

This was me one night! I played the guitar for about two hours. Then I finally gave it to some other dude who promptly snapped two strings by yanking the whammy bar upwards. Turns out he didn't play guitar... He then blamed me. He got kicked out of the party.

I do none of those things, and I play guitar.

Plus these threads irritate me for some reason.

They are supposed to be humorous, and true on some levels. I've only done a couple of them, but I still find the others humorous.

I think I'd rather have my left hand fingers pricked. My fingers on my right hand are really sensitive to pain, while I wonder if my fingertips on my left hand still have working nerves.

2. you realistically air guitar to songs you like

3. you blow two months pay on a guitar you dont even like and then think about the next one

When you use your pick on the seam of your pants

or

You carry anywhere from 2 to 6 picks with you.

or

You know you need gas for your car, but you're about $20 away from that new pedal you want.
