What type of guitar player annoys you the most?

I'll get it started... I'm living in a college town, and I can't stand the frat boy douchebag kind of dude who learns chords on acoustic to try to play Dave Matthews Band songs so he can get chicks. This kind of dude doesn't give a crap about guitar - he's only in it to try and impress the ladies. That **** drives me crazy.

A close second would be wanky trying to show off lead players.

People who think that the songs you can play on guitar only consist of chords that you strum.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

The arrogant lead guitarists who think that if a song doesn't have a solo, then it's not a good song and if the solo isn't how they want it then it's abysmal.

Seconded, I hate it when people would rather show off with a solo than actually try to compliment the song.
#13
I hate the people that don't have their own style. If you are a guitar player and a good one it's not that hard to come up with something original.
#14
I would say when kids first start out they are most annoying because they think they are way better then they really are. I bet a lot of them seriously think they are an undiscovered guitar god, or a legend in their own mind if you will.
#15
I cant stand the guitarists who constantly bash shred/fast guitarists and say they have no feeling/emotion or that its pointless guitar olympics that anyone can play. Its an attempt to justify the fact that they can only play the most basic E minor pentatonic licks and cant be arsed to advance further in any sort of direction.
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.

I DISLIKE (see, not hate aren't I original and/or unique) Guitar players who seem's determined to ruin a perfectly good jam with a Double tapping solo played badly, S'long as it impresses the girl who just popped her head in to check what we were playing.

Almost every lead player to be honest. Like, the ones that I know. All they do it try and show off and mess around when you're trying to be serious and practice. Drives me nuts.

The people who complain about other people playing guitar. Stop being so arrogant, he can play what he wants, and if you're better than him, or you care more, great . I'm sure he doesn't give a fuck.

IT'S A FUCKING HOBBY!

Not a particular style, but a particular person. Back in school when I lived in the residence there were a bunch of guys that were really talented and liked to get together and jam. There was one more guy who thought he was god's gift to music. He played and accoustic with a pieso-electric pickup, he knew three chords and he ALWAYS came running when the others started to jam. He'd plug it in, crank it to full volume and drown out the others banging out his three chords - always without any rythm or pattern, just 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4, he never even tried to get the same tempo as everyone else. If anyone ever said anything he'd go on about hey they just don't understand music. Jesus! that tool pissed me off. ruinned every good jam session the entire year.

What's wrong with learning DMB songs to score chicks? IMHO that's better than learning James Blunt or Green Day to score chicks . And don't tell me you never learned a song a guitar to impress someone else (preferably girls).

Yeah, and are you saying that Bob Dylan the singer owns (very true), or me?

1. the ones who play 10 seconds of stairway to heaven really loud at guitar center
2. The ones that solo for 15 minutes at local shows... but the solos consist of bits of Crazy Train and eruption and don't make up anything(unless they're just scales up and down). It really makes it worse when the treble is too high so it's ear piercing.

People who think shredding/sweep picking is the pinaccle of guitar greatness. And people who've suddenly picked up a guitar because James Blunt has made it "cool".
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name.
