Yep, I am.

Every time I go to a friend's house to jam, they always tell me to hurry up. Hurry up doing what, you ask?

Tuning my guitar.

I can't stand for my guitar to be out of tune, even in the slightest. Even when someone else's guitar is slightly out of tune I get annoyed, but I don't say anything because I don't want to be an ass.

Anyone else hate for a guitar to be even slightly off tune?

I feel the same way. It's not just guitars, though. In band class, I can hear if another trumpet player by me is out of tune, and it bugs me, so I adjust. Then I'm in tune with the person to my left, but the person to my right is slightly flat, and I don't want to seem like an ass and tell them they are out of tune. I also hate when my guitar goes out of tune. I like it to be perfectly in tune, which I know is pretty much impossible. I feel the same way you do...

I am the exact same way! Except I snatch their guitar and tune it before they can even finish their riff. Call me a dick, but they all thank me in the long run.

Ok, maybe thats not exactly how it happens, but you get the jist (sp?)

I'm the same, but I thrash the hell out of my strings so I'm out again in about 20 minutes, I should probably play softer and remember this is not a bass
Quote by thefitz
Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

Yeah I know.

The ex-bass player in our band refused to spend more than 30 seconds tuning his guitar, and it annoyed me beyond belief. Sometimes when everyone went to take a break, I would stay behind and tune his bass...

One of my guitar-playing friends tunes his guitar a little flat and it bugs me whenever I jam with him...I guess being OTD(lol) is a good thing, but it's getting in the way of jam sessions a lot....

i feel kurt cobain summed this one up best...if your guitar is out of tune, then sing out of tune.

hey, if the rest of the band wants to sound like sh*t, let 'em. thats how the people in my high school band were, it got on my nerves so bad!

the singer sucked, but thats besides the point, but i mean vocals are built in, theres no 'tuning' required. we had a good bassist at one point, the one that replaced him.... he kinda gnawed on his bass onstage, he couldnt really play. and the drummer? he was a rich kid with a ridiculous electric drumset (he claims his dad invented the electric drums)

so, sorry i didnt want to sound like crap i guess.

people in your band sound like posers if ya ask me

Everybody I know would rather take time to tune up and sound excellent then sound like crap... since they're all real musicians. To them tuning up isn't a waste of time but a necessity to sound good.

That said, I tune my Steinberger once every two weeks or so xD. Probably more like every few days if i even touched the whammy...
