One quick statement, and I know I'll get shut down fast... but if someone hadn't closed the damn thread...

If you're a newby to guitars and are keen to go to a guitar store to try some axes out but are worried about what to play or who might hear you, hears a tip... take some decent headphones. Many amplifiers have a headphone jack and you can really open the taps up and no one will hear you (thats not true really, everyone will but no one will hear what you're playing).
