Tell me what pisses you off the most while playing guitar.

My all time piss offs:

- When I have to retune my guitar or simply want to do a 1 step down tuning -> FLOYD ROSE, yEAH!!

- when I look down to my guitar and i see all the dust and dirt between the knobs and in the bridge because the sun is shining into my room...

- when I sit there.. and just dont know what to play.. everythings boring.. but i want to play..


Tell me YOURs

When I want to piss about dive boming, but I can't because I have a fixed bridge.
Damn being a cheapass.

The dirt thing, underneath my strings is really dusty no matter how much I clean it.

I have 2 black guitars, and when I catch the light I just see lots of fingerprints and smears, I hate it.

When I have to play on a chair with arms.

parents that scream if you can't play something else... (more happy or whatever)

when you are playing a song that you've know how to play really well and you just happen to suck this one particular day .

same with the dust thing. even after i clean my black guitar, there is always some more to clean off.

and also with that tuning one. i hate having to play a song in drop C or somethin and then want to play a song in standard tuning.

ooow another one... that really really really pisses me off...

After a damn tight recording in which every little piece went wrong and even better then you had in mind...

BUT...

some 30 seconds before the end you get a phone-call, moms calling, someone walks in, gets distracted or just screw up

When my wedding ring taps against the neck. People can't hear it over the guitar, but I can.

EDIT: Also the playing in a chair with arms, although it's easily fixed if I rest the guitar body in my lap instead of over my left leg.

It's great having the Floyd Rose, it's easily the best thing about my ESP.

I hate it when the cheap lead I'm using at the moment crackles and the sound switches from Br00tal to clean, it's so annoying.

When my fingers are cold and don't flow properly I get so annoyed; and, when the strap buttons decide to cunt up on me, but thankfully I've never dropped it.

GAHH!!

I hate looking for a new song to learn, but all the ones I can think of are either too hard or just not challenging....

BIG FREAKIN EDIT!!!: Another thing that gets me annoyed, when I try tuning my guitar by ear and everyone NEEDS to be much louder than I am, then I get the tuning all screwed.

When my ****ing G string constantly gets out of tune, tough i have changed the mechanics and adjusted bridge and whatnot, it still goes out of tune...

Since my last band broke up i play with the schools music group: I HATE THEM ALL (turn the guitar down, NO metal, stop that noise, can't we play celine dion?) and the faggy little guy who plays classical guitar tries to play electric and stinks and do ****loads of feedback.
(yes i played with them earlier today, so i'm pisst now)

When i cook during i play and burn things because i forget the time

When you come from outside and sit down and guitar and fingers are cold so that you can't play

As you can see I am an angry person =) luckily metal is always there for me so the angrier I get the harder I play =)
