I've got one that has been happening to me lately that pisses me off a ton.

That feel when you're playing a song, original or cover, with your band and you feel everything is going well, then the singer says, "I can't sing this, can we drop the tuning a whole step?" or whatever. It annoys the shit about of me. Takes time, and it sounds lame.

Also, once in my dorm building's lobby people were having a karaoke night. That was fine and dandy, but my friend and I were playing guitar in my room, which is quite far from the lobby. My friend started doing a crazy solo he had been working on, and these three girls run by my room. They open the door and say, "Whoa, what was that? Was that guitar hero?"

My friend and I laugh and say "No that was the real deal" then my friend starts to play the solo again. Then the girls just say "Oh, okay then." and leave, without even complimenting him.

This, hits me right in the ego.

I used to get it all the time in high school. Girls would always ask, "Can you play 'Hey, Delilah'?" which is a song I hated. Anyway, hits me right in the ego too.

When you're in the middle of a solo and about to play a dramatic bend on the E-string.
And it snaps.

When you're rocking out like a bad-ass and you step on your cable and it pops out while your backing track is like LOLNOOB.

And lastly... that dust that collects inbetween your pickups..FFS

When you write music your bandmates can't play, because they don't know how to play anything else but 4/4 Nirvana cover songs.

Even worse: when you live in an area where all the other musicians around your age are that way, except for a select few who don't have time for anything. Seriously, unless you live in an area loaded with music school graduates, or if you just so happen to know the right people, DO NOT expect to get anywhere in a progressive metal band. Just don't even try.

tfw when youre a lefty and you want into a music store

when you write something none of your bandmates can play cause they dont know how to play in anything else but common time

tfw you pay an awesome solo and the last bitching note is stopped by a broken stirng and youre on a floyd rose guitar and thats the first song on the list and you dont have a back up because you cant ever find a left guitar that isnt either a shitty starter or ridicilously expensive mark up from the rightey version and you cant borrow a guitar frmo anybody so it pissed you off and you strt drinking

also tfw when you write a cool bassline groove and your bassist plays it all in 8th notes

tfw you're talking to the person you normally jam with, whose worse at guitar and can't really sing, about covering a song, and he's like "yea so I think I'll play the lead and sing, since playing lead will make it easier to sing" and I'm like, wtf. I wish musicians could stand not being the center of attention all the time.

TFW when you haven't changed the strings on your two guitars for almost a year because you've had other stuff you've had to spend most of your money on groceries and other essentials.

TFW you see people on YouTube who have been playing guitar a quarter of the time you are and they are twice the guitarist you are.

TFW you know you want to practice properly but every time you just know where to begin, and get distracted too easily.

I have no problem finding an audience. Just bastards who know how to play the stuff. If it's mosh-able guys like it (also not an easy thing to do with Prog, but possible).


Another trouble I run into is when you find the perfect bandmate for the part and he doesn't have sufficient gear for the part. Like he's the greatest guitarist ever, but has a SS Spider/MG or Crate combo that cant' keep up with my 100w tube amp, or a bass player still using his 15w starter amp.

Everyone's also very poor around here.

I have been playing gigs for the past year with my Spider III. It sounds horrible, feels horrible, and looks horrible. I am lucky, however, that the band sounds worse than a Spider, so I somehow get all the props.

I'm actually finally upgrading my guitar now after years, and once I get a job soon I'm going to try to get a decent amp.

I would suggest that those guys look at pawn shops to find something at least somewhat better and tolerable for live shows. I can't imagine you guys need great gear to gig and shit, just good enough that it doesn't sound like ass.

Tfw You're too poor for new gear.

Tfw Your bandmates think you're "too serious" about music, and just wanna have fun.

Tfw 8/10 guitarists play just chords, and the 2/10 are gods.

That feel being a shredder and your room mate plays random chords and you're like D: AMAZING

That feel owning 7 mediocre guitars and seeing your friends 13 nice guitars

That feel when drummers give up on the jam, get stabbed, or work too much.

That feel when you play bass

That feel when you buy a new set of strings and never actually put them on your guitar.

Um...can't you just have the guy with an "inferior" amp mic his amp? Seriously, if his amp can't be loud enough, then mic the damn thing. Don't they usually have you all plug into the house sound system anyway, when you play gigs?

ppl aren't stupid and annoying just b/c they don't shower you in compliments. guitar playing isn't that impressive and it's not very fun to me those who can't play guitar, whereas guitar hero is. perspective mang.

You're really not experienced with serious gigging, are you?


To start with, Spiders and MG's sound like total ass, especially in a band situation. It's not all about being loud enough, it's also about sounding good.

Also, I don't think you get the concept of projection. The purpose of having a 4x12 cab setup is so the sound is dispersed across a wider area and upwards, so you get a more consistent and even sound across a more open stage, versus a single 12" speaker with a limited range. It's not just for "looking cool."

Sending all guitars through the foldback system is a mess, especially if you're also a vocalist (like I am). And around here you're lucky if you even get a decent PA system that isn't made by Behringer or Yamaha. I'd rather hear the organic sound from my amp rather than a cheap reproduction through a $50 Behringer foldback.


You learn these things when you start playing more gigs aside from you're 7-year-old neighbor kid's birthday party, you know.

I've tried to help them get new gear but most of them either blow their money on weed and cigarettes, or are overly attached to the sound of one specific amp that's so out of their price range that they'll never obtain (like one guy who really wants a Mesa Dual Rec but he really can't afford one right now).

That's another annoyance: broke bandmates...
