It wouldn't be a problem for me to transpose a song from E (insert mode here) to F (insert mode here) because my entire instrument is tuned symmetrically.

Nobody would be better than you if you put all of your time and effort into playing your instrument, but nobody would like you because nobody can relate to putting in that much effort. It'll only make it hurt worse. At least if you suck people compliment you and can relate to you because you don't intimidate them.

Yeah that means all of you fuckers. You aren't any different from all the other fuckers I've met in my life. You don't want anyone to be good. You're ok with the already established guitarists being good, but you don't want anyone to be better otherwise you'll feel bad. Buckethead might be the master but I'm the student and one day ill surpass the master.

Lately? I've played sports my whole life. Musicians are fucking pussies. They don't wanna compete. They wanna be cute and claim they play with more feelings. Man the fuck up. Practice. Act as if your life depends on it because it does.

It doesn't work like that. I am already amazing. You don't want me to be good because if I'm good that means you suck.



Suck it. I know you would because y'all a bunch of fags. When I become famous all over the world I'm gonna tell people about you guys and how everyone sucked and it's not until now that people like me. Which means all you suck too and I'm gonna lose my whole fan base but at least I'll feel justice. I'll be rich and talented and you'll just have your shit to talk. You can talk all the shit you want but it just makes you smell bad.

I've been playing guitar for a long time and I think people tagging me in lame stuff on facebook is the least of my worries.

But with that attitude, no one except you will give a shit.
Assuming you actually manage to get better than Ryan Roxie for starters. Go practise instead of being so goddamn annoying. Whew.

Anyway, I picked all three poll options.

You are honestly, the biggest douchebag I have ever seen. On par with Kanye West ego maniac traits.

You must be loads of fun at parties.

As one of UG's only guitarists, I can honestly say I've never had this problem; having only been tagged in something guitar related once or twice in life.

Nobody even bats an eye when I post a cover lmao.

No one tags me in anything though.

Theres this homeless guy here that just plays the intro to purple haze all day.
He plays it then ppl r like "oh shit this bum knows Purple haze" then they give him money. He waits for them to walk ahead a bit then just plays the intro again.

Basically if you don't practice enough, Peppers will come to your house and make your head explode with his shit tone.

He's like Santa, only real and with a grossly inflated sense of self-worth.

get some lighter strings and a proper setup


Too late, light strings and whatever you are calling a proper setup is no match for my 30 years of callus building through playing stringed instruments.
