Both of these were in the same art class at school


this kid played bass that was in another art period, he always left his bass in its case in the closet, he let me play it a few times when i had nothing to do


so im playing and this kid comes over and looks at the tuners and says "shouldnt all of those be facing the same direction"

another day the bass kid came in cause he was in a free period

he was playing it and it was so out of tune
i kept telling him "mike thats soo out of tune"


a couple minutes later, this kid goes "why dont you just buy a new one and stop wining about it"


i was telling my mom how much a jsx is for christmas, and she says "why are they so much, all it is is a speaker"

GENIUS!
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

My mom said just the other day: "You want me to spend $100 on this "Gibson Flying V"? That's way too much to pay for a guitar!" It was a beautiful guitar too

My friend said there's no point in trying to learn Pink Floyd on guitar cause they don't have a guitar player.

The same friend told me my guitar was way out of tune in C.

Some kid who never picked up a guitar in his life had the balls to tell me Fender is better than Gibson. I kicked his balls to prevent such ignorance again.

That's probably because Fenders are better than Gibsons.

pfft.. F*** that. Gibson better. IN my opinion. Anway. This Kid at my Middle school is going to learn how to play guitar. And his guitar he's gonna start on is a Dean Razorback. (Good luck with the floyd rose a** wipe).I told him, "After the first few weeks You fingers are gonna be sore because you haven't built any callesus" (spelling?) and then he said "No its ok, I'll just use a pick." =|

Not EXACTLY what this threads about but after my friend started playing bass, this other guy comes up and goes, "How many chords you know?" My friend tells him that you dont play chords on a bass, and the other guy flips out. He said, 'I've been playing guitar for 2 years, you play ****ing chords!" So my bassist friend proceeded to kick the guy in the balls. The reciever of said kick was, of course, a metalhead.

I started playing him some of the guitar-heavy Pink Floyd and he told me that it's not them

Apparently, every Pink Floyd CD and vinyl I own has a misprint on it that replaces a Pink Floyd song with another

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

My mom asked me "Why do you play all the way up there? (8-9th fret) The guys at church never go that high! You must be doing it wrong."

Then she asked me "Why doesn't your guitar have a hole in it? How does it make noise without the hole?"

I was playing my friends bass in music class one day, and a girl came up to me and said I'm good at the air guitar. After I called her an idiot, she said "aren't those big strings filled with air? It's an air guitar."

Wtf.
