my brother says that me taking my guitar to school just to play with my other guitar-playing friends is lame and i'll look back on it and be embarassed. so what i want to know is do you guys play your guitar at school just to play, not for a performance or anything? is it appropriate?

I have taken mine before as entertainment during downtime.

You'll regret it if you go with it to try and pick up chicks, but otherwise...

I played my bass at school for this little performance. Me and two friends played "Yellow Submarine" (it was more of a joke thing than anything) and then we jammed. It sucked, but it was funny.

I bring my guitar to school a couple of days a week. As long as you don't make a big deal out of it or anything, it's fine, I just bring it in to entertain friends on. They don't even play guitar.
#6
Why would you be embarrassed? I have guitar class, so naturally my guitar is at school. Well, my acoustic at least.
#7
no, not for the chicks, just for jamming with my other guitar-playing friends.

I dunno but I see alot of people at my school just bring acoustics for really no reason, and they just play em randomly, so no i think its ok if you do
uhhhh, yea
#10
i've done it numerous times. twice to audition for a talent show and another to kill time in the music storage room during lunch. it's stupid people stare and make requests like im a jukebox.

I think it would be a bit odd to whip out a guitar in the middle of class... I've never seen anyone do it.


Play during lunch.
#13
meh just dont be one of those kids who thinks theyre awesome because they can strum some major chords in the halls during free periods. if you dont pulbicize it then its cool, if you do then its annoying
#14
Well, i think you should take it to school every ****ing day, i mean, its extra practice and hell, who the **** doesnt liek a rocker?
#15
i play my guitar at school, thats where my band has pratice. we just break into the band room for a couple hours.

IMO - don't take your guitar to school to try to pick up chicks, if your only way of getting girls to date you is a piece of wood with strings, you're pretty pathetic.

I bring it for jazz, which is first period, then I leave it in the jazz room for the rest of the day.
#18
I only bring mines when I go to my friends house after school to jam. But that rarely happens. But if you bring it for no reason just to show it off, then you would have lost all your dignity.

Never brought my guitar to school and I wouldn't without a reason....just bringing one in seems like showing off IMO.

Might bring one later this year for theory class though.

It seems to be more of a white middle class middle school thing. People bring their guitars to my highschool occasionally.

Always seemed like showing off to me.

One time I had this chick setting on my lap, sucking on my neck, unbuttoning my pants when one of my friends walked in and ruined the whole thing. To be fair though, she was his girlfriend.

I wish I had an acoustic

It must get really annoying carrying that hunk of wood around.

Just dont be show-offy and realize other guitarists WILL critizise you and your playing, dont let them bring you down. Above all else, do not let this practise interfer with your grades.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
#27
Yeah, every time I see someone with a guitar at school it seems like showing off. They just have that sort of look on their face and attitude where the guitar makes them "cool."

I bring mine every day that i have a study hall. I just keep it in the bandroom until 8th period and then jam out in one of the practice rooms or in the main room, it all depends. Usually its my acoustic but once in a while ill bring my electric in if im gonna jam with a drummer or if i have jazz band that day. Its all good though
#31
Last semester I had Jazz Band so I brought it to school every day and played during lunch with my friends/ random people who wanted to jam. This year My friends and I bring a guitar and a practice amp each every Friday and jam in the newly built building (no one likes to go in there yet). Chicks definitely don't dig it because they're all into rap, but we don't do it for them.

I bring mine in all the time. Me and a few other people just play around. Its fun. I dont get what there is to be embarrassed about. Just dont try picking up chicks like that or else you will look shallow!

I first read that as bathroom. I just imagined someone coming in to take a piss, and VOILA a guitar right next to the urinal you are about to piss in.

when people play guitar at my school most of them suck. except 3 people that are ****ing amazing. i leave mine at home but when all those little emo kids take thiers out and try to show of i just ask to see it and play some awesome metal songs.

I bring my guitar to school. The only time I play it is during jazz band.

yeah, me too. i don't play during school, except for jazz band, but that's a class. otherwise, nobody really cares that you can play guitar, because everyone and their mom knows a G chord

so did I. I laughed, but I laughed more at your reply.

I don't have a cheap acoustic to bring, but some of my friends have brought their guitars in and I jammed on them. There are like 5 or 6 teachers at our school (besides music teachers) who play guitar. One of them even used to have a guitar company (his guitars) and he's been playing for 40+ years. He's insane.
