I don't. Unless theres some excuse like you wish you could but you aren't allowed to or you say your planning to.

Long hair just looks alot better and alot more hardcore, and shows that you have been into metal/rock for a long time.

Yeah 'cause you know, hair gives you skillz and credibility. Satriani, Gilbert, Suicmez > you.
FYI, short hair is what's popular with hardcore musicians so long hair is not hardcore.

I agree long hair adds to the rocker look, but not taking a guitarist seriously because they have short hair is one of the most stupid things I ever heard.

Check out Muhammed Suicmez.

Wow. I haven't heard a load of shit like this in a LONG time.

Long hair shows you care about how you look. Most guitarists have long hair because they THINK it makes them look like they know shit. But all it signifies is that you give a rats ass about how you look, rather than how you play.

Basically. Long hair = fashion, not skill.

BULLSHIT!

I've got short hair but I listen I think since I'm 8 years old to rock/metal (and I'm 17,5 right now)... I just don't think it's pratical to have long hair and it doesn't fit me!
So... cause it doesn't fit me I'm a shitty guitar player?
And cause I'm almost bold right now (3-5 mm of hair) I'm listening to dance-music right?
No Way...

This is just the most useless thread I've seen in a long time you know
So... congratulations!

And does every good known or less-known rock/metal-guitarist has long hair?
If I'm not wrong Petrucci minimized it?
Satriani doesn't have... well.... long hair... HE HASN'T GOT ANY HAIR AT ALL!
Should I continue the list?
And by saying these guitarists suck you propably doesn't know a damn thing about music...

that's about the dumbest thing i've ever heard.

I had long hair and had it cut off, am I now a shit guitarist who shouldn't be taken seriously as a result?
#27
Paul Gilbert and John Frusiante (sp?) both currently have short hair, and they still own the hell out of you.
#29
hair isnt everything, its about the music man
frusciante, satriani and me have short hair

Okay if like idk the greatest guitarist had short hair i would still admire him but id still dislike how boring he'd look.

it is a fashion thing but if i saw them at first glance id be more weary then someone with long hair.

Just to clarify myself, I'm not implying that guitarists with long hair are automatically fashion-**** posers. Some of the worlds greatest have long hair.

But long hair doesn't cover you if you **** up on stage.

Les us compare you to for example someone like Gilbert, Petrucci, Satriani of Frusiante....
Let's see... who would bethe one that will win this battle... hmm... hard one!
I think you would run away if it came to a confrontation!... (and struggle cause your hair was to long...)

Oh honey, i'm disappointed.
You came here to ask this question?

It's not about how different they look, it's about how well they play.
