So yeah, post the annoying things that u have to put up with as a musician/someone that plays an instrument...

I'll start us off.

Dat feel when u set up for drop B and the saddles don't travel far enough to intonate properly. The two B strings and the C# is off by a couple of cents and I could get there with a few more turns of a screwdriver if the saddles had more travel room.;___;

TFW some artist has already written a perfect song, that resonates with you in every way, and you feel like not playing anymore because you didn't write it.

(It's an ego feel, and it's lame)

Also when you write great riffs and have trouble placing them in a song or writing parts for the rest of the band that sound as good as the original riff.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

It's not like I'm doing something that's totally lame like chugging. I'm doing it so I can play pseudo bass parts on guitar.

This isn't meant to be a serious musician talk discussion. This is meant to be a chilled out rant thread, not anything technical like what those losers in MT talk about.

Is it 22 or 24 frets? If it's 24, then you can capo the 2nd fret when it's in D and still bend up to the high E.

Yeah, it's like they keep pestering you 'play something for me', and you eventually play them something and they're like 'i don't know what you just played you must not be very good'.
It's like, I don't sing and all I've got here is an acoustic guitar, what did you expect?

I do this with my 7-string, but it'll be 22 frets.

A lot of the stuff I would gravitate toward playing would be in D and I've always wanted to write in D, but my 6-string is 30 years old, missing screws, rusted, and just shit.

I also have them feels of not knowing how to intonate a Floyd...TO THE TUNING THREAD!

Yeah, I played a finger style arrangement of You've Got A Friend In Me for my aunt, who has kids so has definitely seen Toy Story, and she still didn't know what I was doing/care. For ages she kept asking to hear me play and then she just complained

tfw you work really hard on a track and don't even really care for the finished result.

tfw you play something great whenever you're alone, but the first time you play it live, it doesn't go well and you feel like you misrepresented your talents as a musician.

tfw a girl gets 100X more props than she's worth simply because she happens to have a vagina and play an instrument.

tfw you don't really play for people, but that one time you do, they label you as a "show-off."

There was this one douche I had to play with in a band that would call me a show off at every thing I played, the reason he did was because he could only play bad Metalcore chugging.

He also called me Mr. Metalcore after playing a riff off of Focus by Cynic. I still don't understand that.
