Stop coming into guitar center, and playing shitty metal riffs. Its as if 80% of people think shredding some shitty melody, or vomiting power chords is somehow impressive lern2play properly

Thanks

If someone is looking to buy a guitar and happens to play metal, I highly doubt they'll try out guitars by playing some Grateful Dead.

If they're coming in to waste time, they're just as annoying and boring as the ones who do the same playing blues or classic rock.

I've lost count of how many guitar store employees have bitched about this happening.

If you don't like it, find another job.

The day I own a guitar store (or work at one), anyone caught doing this scrub move will get kicked the **** out. Im not gonna get mad that your parents didnt teach you proper taste in music, but for Christ sakes wake up

That's you out of business or a job in 6 months.

If you work there, let them play and say "nice chops" or something, even if you hate it. It'll encourage them to buy and come back in the future.

Well, luckily for everyone who isn't a master at everything musical like yourself, you'll never own a guitar store.

If you get angry at what people play in guitar stores then its perhaps time to give up on life really. Most boring, pathetic thing ive ever heard.
Is it hot in here??

TS is jealous of all those scrubs because they're better than him at guitar.



Ill admit. I cant do the stuff that these kids do. But why on EARTH would I sit and practice for hours on end on stupid shit (like the same power chord progressions, or sweep picking).

Like playing simple shit REALLLY fast is somehow impressive?

And loads of people find Dave Gilmour piling on the delay impressive (or 'emotional' as they like to call it). What is your point?

ok ok ill admit it

If I walked into guitar center as a 16 yr old, or blind folded I might be mildly impressed at what these kids are playing
#23
Sweep picking is the sh*t, and when kids master the sh*t they feel the need to show off. And because they spent so long practicing sweeps, they don't actually have a band, so let them have their little moment. For the record, I don't sweep in shops, I tend to play some Smiths. Don't know why.
Dude, where's my band?

When I go into guitar shops I'll pick up a guitar and belt out some Iron Maiden. Sweep picking is kinda cool but it makes you look like a show-off.

Who says they are trying to impress? When I go into a music store to purchase a guitar or amp or otherwise, I try all my techniques to make sure this piece of equipment can sound good and feel good with them. My specialty is technical death metal. So I'm not going to play reggae or some easy listening. I make sure this thing can handle everything from technical death metal to jazz. In order to do that, I need to perform some of my techniques. I recently went into my local music store. There were two kids there playing acoustic guitar absurdly hard and terrible. They weren't trying to impress anyone. They were trying some acoustic guitars and wanted to see what was good for their skill level. I didn't angry at them for not playing my style of music. They were playing Creed and some other stuff. I hate Creed. But they liked it so who cares? I'm sorry we don't all like your kind of music. Maybe it's you who should learn common courtesy.

maybe my problem is this part. Death metal is right up there with dubstep for me, and speaks measures about a person. Hardly music. Who needs to worry about making musical mistakes when your distortion is all they way up AMIRITE
