Girls have to put up with hearing their boyfriend guitarists play all the time..

If you actually try to give a girl the gift of song, you will fail in an epic way.

Just play her a wicked awesome penis-tapping solo.

Seriously, though, just improvise over the basic theme of "Yellow Ledbetter."

if you and your girlfriend have like a "special song" that you both love you could play that and get her to sing it as well so it doesn't matter if you can't. examples: "Summer of '69" or "November Rain"

or you could do what i did and buy a little dog holding a bone that says "I WUFF YOU"

Did you guys shake it hard? Mine has a callus on it maybe that's why it worked for me. Also my pubes are like little arms and helped make me sound like a badass with some extra harmonized tappage.

at the risk of sounding stupid, what's a build a bear dog? haha... well i just walked into a store with stuffed animals and bought her the cutest one. and i'm sure it'll work.


i asked one of my friends for advice. he said to take her on a picnic, and he went on for ages about what to do, and then at the end he said to drown her in a picnic basket!. he's a funny guy but i was annoyed at him. anyway the lesson learnt is: you have to decide what to get her, and don't ask your guy friends for advice unless you want stupid answers!!!

O RLY?

Then try this - no singing, though. "The Lord of the Dance," as I played it with my orchestra. Just improvise some bullshit over this basic idea.

On the A-to-B bit on the G string, you can do what I do, and bend it. I play loud and distorted - very cool.

You watched the same video? Small world, dude.
