So yeah, what do your friends like/loathe about you since you play guitar.

My friends hate it when we're talking and hanging out and I'll interrupt someone to tell them that I'm going to go play guitar. then I ditch them.

I also play my guitar over the phone. People think I'm not paying attention to them when I play guitar over the phone but I pay complete attention.

Well I've been playing I was 8, so they're all used to my guitarist-esque characteristics.

I guess the things that they hate are when I play guitar on the phone, and when we're downtown and we walk past the music store, and I force them all to go in.

I think my friends are indifferent to it honestly.

Save for the ones I play with most don't really care, it's not like I go up to my mates and be like "Oh dude I play guitar! Check it!". Don't really talk about playing guitar often.

DON'T PANIC! DON'T PANIC!
THEY DON'T LIKE IT UP 'EM!

they hate that me and my m8(also a guitarplayer) always talk about it.... if we're getting pizza or something, it always end up with either of us getting the guitar and jam some sweet tunes.... they hate that...

Probably because that it a really stupid and disrespectful thing to to. If you're going to talk to someone on the phone, talk, don't play guitar.

they encourage me to go into a career involving music, even my dad is finally. Life's pretty great right now.
#12
Well I play bass more and they think I can play anything. So one of my pianist friends will be like "I transposed [insert song]... do you think we can cover it?"

after i started playing, most of my friends heard me play , and then gave up
#16
Aye, when girls know that I play, I usually get a lot more attention, and it usually gets interest, but its' not my whole life. Sure, so in bands I take it seriously enough to not let anyone down as much as I can, but thats all. At the end of the day, shredability is not the only key to happines.

You ditch your friends to play guitar? That's not very kind to your friends..

My friends have known I play guitar pretty much since I met them, but it's never been a factor in whether or not we've been friends, if that makes sense.
#19
Most of my really good friends have taken it up as well actually. A few play other instruments too so we all jam together loads, it's great
My other friends mostly aren't into rock and roll so much, but they still think it's cool whenever they hear me or another of my friends and they generally come along to see us if we play anywhere.
#20
Whenever there is a discussion about guitars (or guitar hero) my friends always point out that I can play guitar.. "amazingly"

#22
The ones who aren't musicians think it's either cool or are indifferent and the ones who are usually are pissed off because I'm usually better than them. Especially the friends that play different instruments. I know a bassist who doesn't like the fact that I can play bass better than him.
#23
i play 24/7 even when im taking a dump , it pisses them off .. some dont care that i play and some r wiggers so they dont know anything about guitar and others r just jealous
#24
i hate when I meet new people and my friends are all "hes so awesome at guitar, he can play anything" Its just awkward. Plus I like to show girls in person, it was a harder impact, then explaining in words that you are good.
#25
Some of my friends pretend to think that it's cool or something...Most of them don't seem to really care. And, of course, it has not helped me score with the ladies....at all...
#27
My friends have no problem with it.

Last night a friend of mine hooked up his rock band drums and mic to Garageband and asked me to bring my guitar over to see if we could make anything listenable.

They don't care if I play guitar. Except if there's another guitarist with them. Then they hate me because I start talking about guitars.
Kinda like "Fighter" from 8-bit theater, but replace "Sword" with "Guitar".

probably that when we're in a group and there is a guitar around I'll start playing, that pisses them off sometimes. But they know I'm better then could be
