The cliche's. I've seen:

A ~14 year old with a guitar made out of plastic, shaped like a B.C. Rich, doing tapping licks and Slayer-esque stuff, loudly and obnoxiously.

A ~50 year old man doing his best Van Halen impression through a Marshall stack, drowning everyone else out, shredding obnoxiously

A ~18 year old male, dressed in black, black hair, playing (very pretty) songs entirely done via two-handed tapping.

A ~10 year old, trying desperately to play Iron Man, oblivious to his suckitude.

A ~55 year old man, playing amazing blues

A ~25 year old god of acoustic guitar

A ~45 year old man playing awful blues

A ~16 year old male playing Hammett and Rhoads solos

A ~15 year old male playing Guns 'n Roses

Etc. What types have you noticed seem to frequent GC? It's as if I'm always playing around the same people, only in different clothes, with different faces.... quite annoying actually.

you know the worst guitar center cliche? the assholes that work there that think they know anything about guitar. and its never one person, either you get a whole guitar center full of really helpful people, that know what theyre talkin about, or a giant shit hole comparable to the 6th level of hell that know NOTHING about guitars, but they have tattoos and wear really tight jeans and chuck taylors, so theyre qualified

What about the 18 year old guy playing Hendrix and blues?
Or any kind of classic rocker.

Most of the time my guitar center is pretty normal and most of the employees are pretty cool.

But this one time I saw a kid in all black standard emo/goth look with his girlfriend also in black hanging off of him and this fat salesmen was trying to sell them a line 6 spider stack. There was just heavy feedback and crap noise coming from it.

Meh I really didn't care, just chuckled a bit because everyone on UG keeps talking about stuff like this happening and i've never seen it till now.

What about the 15 year old girl playing Metallica riffs and attempting the solo's ?

What about the 8 year-old Asian kid that blows everyone away? Those little ****ers are amazing!
#22
I always go and play Tool through the Orange or MesaBoogie halfstack with a Gibson Les Paul Studio. I always get approving looks from one of the workers, probably cuz noone else in this town seems to know Tool except the two of us.


I wish I were rich...

The really cool <insert age here> years old man that instead of show off and tell you that you suck, teaches you cool stuff.
Or, in the case that is a girl, also gives you her phone num and ask you to call her so you jam together

yeah, the young teenage boy in all black with various facial peircings. I choke him out from behind, silently. I drag his unconscious body into the soundproof amp room and hide his body in the back of a 20 year old Marshall cab. I then ask the the quiet older teenager that was playing Megadeth if he could show me Hangar 18 on that Marshall, full volume...

i hate the 13 year old kid in guitar center playing air guitar to a solo on the music playing from the intercom

Wow. Good list. Works with my local guitar center.

Now, the question is, which group are we all in?
METALLICA.
