well it bugs the crap out of me when someone whos never heard me play ask "how good are you?". i dont really know what to say because if i say im good they might compare me to a guitarist like slash. so i usually say "im ok i guess but my friends say im good".

I brought my guitar to school once and I was asked to play 50 cent, I just walked away with my guitar.

OMFG

I always get the ...


"Damn Your So Good!" Remark.

and it'll be for playin some dumb cheesy chord progression that even a total newb could play.

when people say that to easy stuff, itmakes you feel so retarded.

and the "Can You Play :enter popular song here:?" one sucks too.

dude, don't even bother to ask those, whenever someone asks me something like that, or the more common "are you good?" I just shrug my shoulders and go "nah" in a way taht says "sorto, i dunno" then i tell them that I've been playing for two years and am mostly self taught (I've had one 'formal' lesson in which a guy taught me the Am, Em, G and D chords).

so, just ignore those questions and shrug them off because there will be always someone better than you or someone that people think's better than you, wether it's Hendrix, Vai, Satch, Malmsteen, SVR, Slash, Page, Young or any guitarrist that has ever achieved world fame. just shrug them off and keep going with life, cause it's not about how fast you can play or how you can abuse pinch harmonics while playing a live concert for Ozzy (I'm looking at you Wylde) or how impossibly complex is your music (Petrucci) but it's about how well you can consolidate your ideas and express them through the guitar

"Play the Mario theme"
"How good are you?"
"Whoa, that was awesome"

I'm usually pretty modest, so I don't like when non-players tell me I'm awesome for playing something that's really not that hard. And one of my friends always asks me to play the Mario theme, so that's annoying too. First of all, I don't know it, and second, what a random request, wtf?

i always say "not as good as i'd like to be"... i'm pretty sure that works for everyone always...

I get the "Are you good?" a lot. I'll try the "I'd like to be better" response, sounds solid and like it doesn't offer much of a re-response.

I was sittin playin the pilgrim in music yesterday on one of the schools Squier knock-offs (how cheap is that) and this girl comes up and asks if i play electric or acoustic.

When i asked her what the guitar looked like she replied "an electrical acoustic" then when i asked her if she knew theres not much diference between an electric and an acoustic she told me that "nearly all" electrics have 4 strings.....
Screw you guys, i'm goin home

"how much did it cost?"
then they proceed to tell me i got ripped for buying a 200 doller guitar.
i usualy respond with GTFO

i also hate people who ask me what the song is called when im just randomly messing around with scales.
its not a bad question but its anoying cause when you say "oh its just scales, im just messing around" they get all huffy cause its not a "real"( maby popular is a better word) song
