You know, those dudes that take their acoustic guitar to public places (parks, parties, etc) and play soft and simple songs/chord progressions just to get all the girls. Sometimes these guitar douchebags just "practice" guitar to get girls, but sometimes they are skilled players that feel a little horny. These skilled players will stop playing metal, put down their electric, pick up their acoustic, leave their basement and head for the park. After getting girls and getting laid, he will go back to playing what he always plays.

I hate to admit it, but sometimes I'm a guitar db. I love metal but I also love girls, and I know that playing megadeth will not get me a girl as easily as knowing how to play "patience" by GnR. I can't remember the last time I was a guitar db, but I will be this weekend during my beach trip with friends. I will sit on the beach playing my acoustic just to get some girls. It has worked for me in the past and it will work again this weekend.

So pit, are you guys ever guitar douchebags?

EDIT: it seems like a lot of people have missed the point. keep in mind that a guitar douchebag will play in public with the intention of getting some tail. its not just some guy that plays in public.

I used to play my guitar at lunch nearly every day since I had to bring it for guitar class. I never got laid. Should I try this again?


Yes. Wait til your hair's grey though... Only then will you be able to go back to your highschool and play for pussy.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

Personally, I set up shop downtown with a Peavey XXX fullstack and serenade everyone with metal.

I get laid a lot.

All the time. It wasn't to get girls as much as it was as something to do during lunch.
Right Now, you're thinking "Bullshit."
You are right.

I've only ever taken an instrument into a public place in order to panhandle.

all I ever get is food. from hippies. it makes no sense.
#14
All I listen to nowadays is top 40 radio, so that's all I really perform too.

And yes, I do like to use it for the sex advantage.

Sounds like I'm a guitar douchebag.

edit: I sing too though. Does that make me a singer douchebag?

There's so many guitar players at my school that being a guitar db doesn't really get you girls.
#16
Only halfway...I don't bring it with me but when I see one I ask them if I can play it. Not only has this gotten me girls, but also new friends.
#18
If someone wants to hear me play, then why not? I'm not carrying my guitar everywhere though. Bedroom guitarists ftl.

Let's get real here, who can honestly say they have never used guitar to pull tail? It doesn't have to be the whole acoustic serenade thing, the speed of the fingers of a metal player can excite a girl as well, and, to be honest, I have used that to my advantage with the ladies. Pull out six string sweeps and very fast movement of your fingers and a suggestive remark and the girl will wonder what else your fingers are capable of, and there you go, you have used guitar to pull tail. Don't get me wrong, I'm completely against only playing guitar in the attempt to get some, but I don't see anything wrong with occasionally using it to get some if you do actually care about and enjoy playing the guitar for the music.

and since when has being a metal guitar player been harder than being a skilled singer/songwriter?

creating unique melodies and chord progressions, and having an element of subtlety to your playing are just as difficult as acquiring speed.

not all singer songwriters just play 3 open position chords.
#21
**** the haters. I do that shit just because I love being outside and playing guitar, if the girls want to get to know me better, than so be it.

Its funny how it does become the douchebag effect though, and everyone around you ends up envying the shit out of you because they're jealous.

dude, I know that. I just used metal as an example because of how much different and "extreme" it is compared to other genres of music

I haven't done what's described in the OP, but I did bring my les paul and double neck to school and covered Stairway To Heaven and Moby Dick with my band for that exact reason, so I guess, yes I have.

lol douche.

A kid in my class brings his Ibanez les paul shape and just shows off before school in the hallway. Bugs the shit out of me.

No. I play acoustic primarily but that is because my acoustic guitar is nicer than my electric. Also I play in public occasionally but not to get girls because I do not like being touched.

Edit: Also I don't know very many popular songs, mostly just obscure ones. That doesn't really get girls.

This ^

You can put the douchebag effect to almost any pastime/occupation that a woman finds attractive in a man. A guy could be using a pnumatic drill in a street and a woman could find that attractive, does that make him a douchebag? Of course it doesn't.

The thing is, is it just the guitar playing, or are there other factors involved here? If the guy playing in the park was really ugly for instance, would he still pull the girls?
And if not, how much can anyone blame the douchebag effect upon his playing? Fair enough, he may be drawing attention to himself (which is something we all do when ever we wear a loud shirt) by playing a guitar, but it may actualy be his looks or his personality that get him laid rather than his guitar playing.

It makes perfect sense, hippies never have any money so they give you food instead because they assume you are starving because you're busking.

Why don't you bring yours and show them up?

Or better yet, spread word about your band and get them to show up and be impressed?

As someone said earlier, bedroom guitarists FTL.

I don't think that ever actually works, since everyone in my town knows how to play. They are usually ignored.

ive tried, its just that these kids always happen to be leaving whenever i walk over to their table or whatever, but I guess i could do this finally,

as for the band thing, its a rather small town with only a few bands wich are a combination of scremo/really bad deathmetal/christian scremo

so as you can imagine, the lack of good musicians to play with is very present here

but i plan on moving to a bigger city so its all good
#34
I take my guitar to parties all the time. Never "uninvited" though; usually somebody asks "can you bring your guitar?" beforehand, so I don't see what's wrong with it

ZEDIT: As for playing guitar to get me laid, no.
#36
I'm quite subtle with my guitar douchebaggery. I don't bring my guitar places, but if I see someone else playing guitar or a guitar on a stand in a public place, I usually ask politely to play. Or this happens:

"Hey Sam, don't you play guitar?"

"Oh, a little bit. Let me see here..."

*pentatonic scale*

Does jamming your band's songs with your other guitarist in GC count as being a douchebag? People seemed to enjoy it.
