Oh, look! He brought an acoustic guitar! Maybe he'll play songs we all know so that we can sing along!

...alright, it's a little out of tune, but maybe we can sing over it.

Okay, he's playing Sweet Chil- Trying to play Sweet Child O' Mine. I dunno, I like the song, maybe we can sing to that? He stopped. Now he's playing Iron Man.

Just wanted to summarize every party I've ever been to. Why must the six string ruin all forms of partying?

Because he can't play it...

me and my friends don't play in front of people we don't know at parties, seems like something a tool would do.

I also only have one friend with an acoustic guitar, but he's pretty good, and plays gigs and stuffs, he wouldn't bring it to a party.

Because nobody likes the arrogant dick who brings his guitar anywhere it shouldn't be. Unless you're invited to play, don't.

I bring my acoustic to parties. I play it. People sing along.

Must suck to have someone who can't play it.

I hate it even when they are good... these people just like attention and stop any decent conversation that could be happen - they always choose to do it in the quietest part of a party!

I was down the pub before and some **** brought his guitar for the open mic night they were having. He was insistent on standing about outside in the beer garden playing it whilst constantly looking to make sure someone was watching him. If he was being ignored he would walk up to people and kinda force the recognition. I just wanted him to **** off.
#15
Cause the guy is a tool and does no know how to play! Stop inviting them or just tell everyone ahead of time that these guys can't play for shit.

This indeed, the only way to party.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

Playing guitar at parties is just a no no. Unless you're drunk, then it's funny, but still a no no because you'll end up ****ing something/someone up.

I like when people cover the 'comfortably numb' solo. That's amazing.

My little sister's sad friends used to do this when she had them over for drinkypoos and to soak up each other's awesomeness. And then my sister would attentionwore and be like MAI SISTUR HAZ A GITAR TOO LOLZ and all these spotty, greasy-emo fringed little twats would be trying to get their greasy hands all over my ibanez

No guitars at parties, losers.

Im the guy that ends up finding an old acoustic somewhere in the house and then takes requests for the rest of the night.

.Actually at my friends house, teh party started to center around playing guitar, cuz everyone there but like 3 people could play, and the kids setup costs about 4x more then my car does.

Which is fine as long as you can play the song the whole way through. Which sounds like the douches problem in the TS's post. If you can't play at least a hand full of popular songs that people can sing to, then you're not ready to play in public.

Playing guitar at parties is almost up with hair gel and fist-pumping on the douchebaggery scale. It's like saying, "Hey, I'm not attractive, funny, or clever enough to get girls attention, so I'll make enough noise that they have to pay attention to me!"

I take my guitar to parties. Mostly because I'm asked to bring it. People know I play and like to have a sing along. If I'm not asked to bring it it's probably because I'm playing at said party haha
#35
I find that this solves the problem most of the time

But seriously, I sometimes play at parties, I just leave the guitar in the car, and don't mention it to anybody. And if asked to, then play some sing-along songs. But you NEVER arrive at the party with a guitar and start playing, that's just douchy.

I've never seen someone bring a guitar to a party. I wouldn't really mind it if someone did, as long as they actually know how to play it decently. It's a bit of an attention whore move, but whatever.
#37
Lesson learned - Unless the very reason you're invited is to play music, don't.
Also, at parties, easy-to-play sing alongs are usually more popular than guitar solos, no matter how awesome the solo.

On a side note, I only play guitar at parties when I'm explicitly invited to do so.

Depends on what kind of party it is, really. If I'm partying with nothing but musicians, then go ahead and play one of my guitars. I don't care. But if it's a general gathering of people, please leave it alone.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I tend to have my acoustic in my car all the time, just for convenience sake for when I happen to need it for something. The other day, some people wanted me and some other guy to play guitar, so we ended up playing a really nice rendition of "Wish You Were Here", it actually turned out fairly nice

Anyway, I never play unless asked. Dick move.
