Guitar isn't cool in my opinion it's quite nerdy. Lot's of people play it and most are self taught and aren't that good to be honest. It think it's a bit common and mainstream and attracts to many posers. So anyone agree that guitar isn't cool.?

Shut up.
A recent study shows that 98% of people don't give a flying fuck about what you consider 'real' music is or not.

I never thought that playing guitar is cool, I just wanted to learn all these amazing songs I heard, but too many play just to be cool and try to attract attention with it.

well, I've never considered it to be cool. It's another instrument that I like especially. I have teachers and take formal band classes.

When I first started playing there were barely any guitar posers around. It's a shame the instrument has become so popular, because it has increased the prices of equipment and has given proper guitarists a bad name.

I'm self-taught, but I can play Satriani songs. It's just these morons who listen to Fall Out Boy and take their guitars into school to strum a few power chords that spoil it for anyone with a real passion for the instrument.

I'm not against people taking up guitar, if they enjoy it, they enjoy it. But, alot of people, contemporarily, only play for the look. I despise that.

Anyway, why are you on a guitar forum if you don't like guitar? Leanring guitar is anything but nerdy.

EDIT: Hold on, you only asked if it's cool (I didn;t read most of your post, I just thought you were abusing guitrists). I see. Well, whether it's cool or not makes no difference to most guitarists, they play because they enjoy music. However, what's cool and what's not is really your preference.

Dude. Unless you are pushing 80 then guitar was popular before your lifetime.

EDIT: But guitar is nerdy in the typical sense. I know a bunch of metal heads with no social skills who literally spend all their time practicing in their room. So in a standard sense, I would say guitar isnt cool, but to me its awesome.

I love how cool = not popular to kids these days.

It's not supposed to be cool. You like playing it, play it, you don't like playing it, don't play it. Not much about it.

On a sidenote, that was a rather sad attempt to start a flamewar.

whats funny is when people who think guitar is kl and pose with it get pwned/shredded to pieces when a guy who can actually play comes along

You are dumb. You come on here and complain about people who play for fashion rather than trying to better yourself or give other people advice at guitar. Save your complaing for Ultimate-Suckmydick.com.
#29
well i didnt start because everyone around meplayed, i started cause i just wanted to play the music i listened to. to me guitars just a fun way to escape everything around me. and what do you have against people who are self taught? im self taught and honestly i wouldnt have it any other way.

thats possibly the stupidest thing to say on ULTIMATE GUITAR.COM

sometimes people (me included) can't help but want to play the music they listen to, i mean, if you hear a song sometimes its better to be able to actually play it than sitting there air guitaring away and pretending your cool and can play. now that really is pretentious.

not the wisest statement in a guitar forum. HELL WERE COOL WE GET MORE PUSSY THAN YOU SO F UCK OFF PUNK!

About 2 and a half years ago. It was before my town flooded with posers and the local guitar shops flooded with idiots playing smoke on the water on American Deluxe Fender strats.

No, I don't mean back int he 80's when if someone learnt to play a guitar, they learnt to play some awesome solos. I mean now, with kids playing guitar and having the talent of a drunken baby (They play only for the look). Guitar has always been popular, yes, but now, with the access to tabs and cheap models of guitar, there are alot more guitarists than there used to be.

I actually think having tons of guitar players and easy acess to info will really help. We will obvisiously get some great new players soon.
