getting a job and paying for it yourself.

Works like a charm.

Beg and negotiate.

If neither get you anywhere then I do not have enough experience to dictate what to do next.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.

i suppose you're still in high/middle school right? then i'd wait until a holiday or birthday and agree to pay for majority of it like 65/45. then again my mom thinks that spending 1000 dollars on an amp to upgrade is stupid

That's be intense, you'd pay for the majority, and they'd pay for the rest until you make the 110%.

I don't, i work and save and buy everything i need myself. They already feed and clothe me and put a roof over my head, why should they buy all my guitar gear/fund my hobbies as well?

Well, this is a little off topic but when my friend's parents are being a little harsh on him, he'll go to school and pick up an armed forces pamphlet and take it home. He just leaves it out for them to find. Rather ingenious if you ask me.

You ****in' get a job.

1000 dollars is an assload of money. No one of sound mind should drop that kind of scratch at the drop of a hat. She's right to be skeptical.

Don't tell me you dont know the bunny shaped marshmallows !

Well, say its for your musical developmental skills and just ramble on about something, if theyre stupid enough they'll go for it
if not, get a job and buy one like the rest of us.
#31
My parents would never buy me a new guitar.
1) I'm not rich
2) I'm not as spoiled as some people are; I'm somewhat spoiled, but not get whatever I want spoiled. I'm do whatever I want spoiled.

...unless it's Christmas or my birthday.

get 98% in all of your classes, then tell them you're thinking about art school
#33
be consistent
Get good grades
Don't be an asshole (too much)
Get a job (unless you are too young)
Don't milk out the most expensive gear
Don't complain
I don't even shred
#34
getting good grades and doing chores is usually a good way

or as stated before, you can use brute force and show them what their leader wants
I see no sign of fortress.

practice in front of them. show that you really love playing guitar. worked for me.

dude man. just keep askin them. be really nice. try harder in school. like tell them you'll do anything. if they say soemthing like be more polite, do it, clean ur room, do it. just do whatever it takes. eventually after u keep nagging them, and they see that you have done everything they'll just buy you one to stop u from bugging them. Trust me, if u believe in yourself and you're sure that you want experience this craft, then you can do it. I remember like back in gr 8, i thought I would never get an electric guitar. I thought that i'm different than everyone else. no one I knew had a guitar. except for this one kid but his dad used to play in a band and works at a guitar store, either than that no one else i knew had one. but I just tried really hard and asked my parents so much. it's all about attitude, show ur parents that you really want one, but that you're not a spoiled little kid, but that you will actually appreciate it if they buy you one and say thank you and stuff.
