Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

People that borrow picks.

Seriously, you're a guitarist, you should have pics, you never hear of an artist borrowing a paint brush.

It's the worst when they don't give them back.

Actually this one kid I know always asks to borrow one, and as soon as you hand it to him he has it in his mouth while he does something.

SO ANNOYING

I have had the same Dunlop 1.0mm for over 2 years... How do you lose picks? Last time I broke a string? A long time ago... I don't have friends who aren't musicians that are stupid enough to touch anything I own without asking... I guess people always asking me to play Stairway to Heaven or Iron Man... Two songs I hate so much, I like Led Zep but that song was some serious faggage. Don't even get me started on Sabbath; no respect at all there due to Ozzy.

This next statement is based on every single part of your comment.

You, my friend, are not a real guitarist...

People telling me to play a song. If I don't play something, then "I suck at guitar." If I don't play something that the person likes, then "I suck at guitar."

Well, I'm sorry that I'm a funky-blues player with a hint of Ted Nugent. Here, I'll learn some Blink 182 just for assholes like yourself!

Losing picks...I lost one the other night and almost started cursing very loudly. Then I found it on my mouse pad. I know that I didn't put it there, but somehow it migrated.

I ask myself the same question but I think pehaps because the picks I use are of poor quality.

That and constant use.

random question here but, is a 1.50mm pick to thick? i play mostly 80's rock.(if that helps)

I prefer 1.14, but meh.. I don't play 80's rock

On topic, however... Breaking a string is not that irritating if you have a spare at home. However, if you don't, it can be pretty damn annoying.
#34
The 1st, surprisingly enough, doesn't bother me that much haha, good job really, although i'm not a gigging guitarist so I suppose breaking a string at home isn't quite that same on the stage in front of people

the 2nd doesn't really apply, almost all my close friends who are going to be in my house near my guitars are all guitarists, and other friends just stay away through fear of embarassing themselves i think

3rd has never happened to me, although I could imagine it being frustrating

and 4th is definitely the most annoying, i CANT stand thinking i've put a pick down somewhere and turning around to find it's gone, but i never learn and i never make any attempt at keeping track of them. I only have myself to blame
#35
I only have one pick, which I always carry in my pocket, so whenever I lose it I freak out.

Other guitarists annoy me. Especially here, where everyone plays Nickelback, AC/DC, and Foo Fighters.

Thick picks annoy the crap out of me.... 0.60 is the thickest I'll ever use, .38's and lower are awesome, but they snap really fast.

How is breaking a string not number 1? It's so annoying. Your're just playing along and then *twank* ......... MOTHER****ER...... really.
