It's Easy. Just check where you stand. I want to see exactly how much of UG is big and how much is small.
Nope. None at all.

I'm a poser, but I don't really understand your question. I have quite large genitals, if that is your enquiry.

The poll is pretty useless. What if you've played out a few times but you still spend more time on UG than practising? Do I choose 1, 2 or 4?
#9
Done a few small gigs, hoping we can get them more regularly.

How come there isn't a choice for 'guitar merely as a hobby as I'm too busy trying to further myself academically'?

Then you could be twice as good as you are if you didn't waste all that time on UG.
Nope. None at all.

So? I would be twice as good a physics student if I did some work too! Doesn't mean I don't have better things to do!

It's just a hobby.

I feel like the poll discredits people who are just casual players, and based on the initial question posed, you are the least amount of a "poser" if you are a professional musician. Plenty of professional musicians can be posers, and plenty of guitar players (like myself) have a passion for playing and bleed.....strings and frets? Even some of us amateurs just love to play!

Well thats it

I guess I just wanted to say that I hate Guitar Hero.
Nope. None at all.

Plenty of pro-musicians definitely do more posing than anything else. The poll shows the threadstarter's prejudices and lack of intelligence rather than anything about pit users.
#27
Okay this makes more sense with a poll aha

I've opened for the Reason, Social Code, The Saint Alvia Cartel, Hostage Life, Flashlight Brown, and plenty more that I'm sure I'm forgetting.

If none of those bands sound familiar to anyone, it's probably because they're all Canadian and they're not necessarily huge, but big enough to get almost constant radio play.

Seconded.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

no such thing as a poser. you are what you are if you copy somebody else's ideas then you are a copycat but you will still be you.
#35
I do gigs regularly.


If you use Ug as a benchmark for weather or not were posers, you realy must get out more T.s
