I used the search bar and couldn't find it mainly because my search bar is messed up.

Mine was when I just got out of lessons and was waiting for my ride to come.This happened last week. A black guy came in looking for a bass and when the guy at the counter asked him how long he's been playing the guy said 8 years. So after the guy finds a bass he likes he sits down in the back where the used amps are and plugs into a guitar amp and turns it up and its hard to describe the noise of the speaker blowing without using the word boom. everyone laughed and the guy ended up paying for the amp.

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

my funniest one was when i went to buy a q-tron at steves music and the guy spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how it works and eventually he told me that the huge volume cut was supposed to be like that and the peal wasn't broken, which it was

my funniest moment is when my friend and i went to our shop (just a little one and we're friends with the owner and his son) and my friend had this big theory he was getting is penis peirced, so we told adam (the owners son who is about 23-24) and his reaction was laughing with a look like you have no idea, then he goes on telling us this story about his friend getting his nipple peirced and how if your body rejects the metal you need an operation...and my friend just went silent, and walked out lol

I was in a store, and someone played 'Stairway To Heaven', and of course this is a No Stairway store, everyone grew silent, and the guy left with his head down escorted by a bouncer.

Here;s mine...

I was in a local shop about to plug in, when I lifted the guitar (Fender Telecaster) the headstock hit the ceiling and made a loud noise. The ceiling is about 7'5 feet tall and I'm 6'2, so you get the point. A couple employees looked over, awkward, let's just that never happened again...

LOL A black bassist! Anyhow, my local store is total crap, nothing ever goes down there. One time a guy broke an acoustic. Wow. You do get a lot of the poseurs in though, showing off to their mates. They may have just been beginners though you can never tell with Nirvana. Saying that though, at least they have the balls to play in public.

Me and my friend we're both plugged in into 2 amps side by side playing. He gets bored and goes onto something else. But instead of put his stuff up, he leaves his amp on, and tells me to hold his guitar. So here I am, alone while my asshole friend is playing acoustics in another room, while I have an unplugged, high wattage amp still on, an unplugged heavy guitar in one hand and another one plugged into another high wattage amp, both of them with heavy feedback, becuas my friend is a lazy asshole. The employees got mad at me. And this is the same guy who 2 days ago, got pissed off at me for asking him to hold a guitar for 2 seconds so I could tie my shoe.

And for those who remember my story about my gig from hell with my old lead guitarist, it's the same guy.

I picked up a Gibson SG and plugged it into a Marshall JCM 800 half stack. Well, I was total noob so i didn't know how the hell to turn the thing on. I hit the standby thinking that was the on switch but nothing happened, so i turned all the knobs, still nothing. The my sis hit the on and WHAM! It was a massive explosion of sound. i almost dropped the SG. I was hella scared and walked out, all embarrassed.

I was buying this new amp a while back when I was a noob (2 weeks ago )
the guy there was like you should try it. I said no thanks. He's like so you know how it sounds? No. he just looked at me like he was confused. but I got it any way

Having worked at a music store, i can say THIS is the way to turn on a tube amp.

1) Turn all the volume knobs (master or otherwise) to 0.
2) turn to standbye, wait for it to warm up a minute
3) slowly turn the volume knobs up starting with the channel volume
4) turn up master volume.

Dam kids will leave the volume all the way up. Next person doesn't check and WHAM, 100 watts of Mesa Boogie sound blows out our eardrums. And since everyone plays solid-state nowadays, no one can ****ing turn on tube amps right. We have a big sign in front of them now that says "please ask for assistance" since people just pop it all the way on and start playing which is bad for the amp.

I was at guitar center, and some cowboy hot shot douche wanted to play the $40,000.00 taylor with the vine of life inlay on the back, and he scratched it with his belt buckle!!!!!!! As soon as i heard it scrape, i cut out of there. FAST.

When I first started the Master of Puppets solo, I couldn't quite play it to speed. So I played it the locally owned guitar store, and I kept slipping up. And the guy beside me who was playing a guitar to, he's like "Is this how it goes?" And he played the entire solo perfectly. I walked out with my head up my ass.

I was playing a Gibson acoustic guitar in my local guitar store, and this guy started beat-boxing along to it, and an employee who was already playing a bass, started improvising to my improvisation. It was sounding pretty good, and when I got up to leave everyone went silent and stared at me, like I was ruining their fun (it was 10 people, but very awkward) so I kinda shuffled/jogged out.


Another time I was in this huge place and I asked a guy who workled there "Where are the Ibanez's?" and he said "We do ESP instead". He kicked me out for laughing at him

EDIT: I also get kicked out of this place called Waltons all the time for playing a harp. There's a big sign that says "Do Not Touch Harp" but my defence is I was playing it and hence had become one with the instrument which means they shouldnt touch me. That just makes them angrier though...

i watched this fat guy sit on an amp while he was playing a very expensive PRS SE custom. the amp wasnt a great amp. (little fender priceton combo) and the amp gave out under his weight and one of the sides broke and he fell flot on his ass. as he fell he dropped the guitar and cracked the neck when it hit the wall. so he broke an amp and a $3500 about 2 feet away from me. it was very hard to stop my self from bursting out laughing.
