I only play guitar sitting down. Although. I can play blindfolded so i was just wondering, if i were to sit down blindfolded play all my riffs not perfectly of coarse but still play them good. You think it would be a good gimmick?

In front of your friends/family, or on stage?

I don't think it would go over very well on stage, since it'd be a very boring show to watch. If you;re trying to impress your friends and family though, it would work well.

for 1 song (a slow chill number) on stage it would work if the song was somewhat complex and you nailed it dead on. but if you're not playing perfectly i wouldn't even try it. i recommend getting a strap and learning to play standing.

i can play standing bro. I just dont i sit on my bed, its where all my thoughts seem to go. Its my bed of complex thoughts. Iunno i dont like standing too much but w/e i prefer sitting much more comfterable and i can show more emotion through playing that way.

dn't do it at a show, unless it is at a party and you are off your head on 6 or 7 different kinds of drugs (including alcahol and glue)

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

I agree with Jackgnat, it seems kind of arrogant to think people want to come to the show to see you play well. Our bass player thought sitting was more comfortable too, which it is, but still a guitar isn't that heavy just don't be a pussy and stand up. I suppose it depends what type of music you're playing, if it's like slow acoustic stuff you could get by sitting down, but if its a rock show you should deffinately be up and moving around.

Yea. I want to do that to. My band is heavier rock, so I'd walk out on stage with a pink Hello Kitty guitar, and play a kick ass first song, then switch back to my Les Paul for the rest of the show. Maybe the HKS for the last song.

Nice! I want to play a show with that guitar too! I wouldn't trash it though, I would try to act like it's my regular guitar.

i guess it would be pretty cool if your riffs covered the entire fretboard, but if its just your basic pentonic shape, nobody will really care

People who don't know anything about the guitar will think it's "awesome", but guitar players will yawn.

if you need to blindfold yourself to get people to come see you, write better music.
