I always do, by accident, kind of. People always get angry at me for it.

Do you play guitar when people are trying to talk to you?

EDIT: I accidentally typed "tying" instead of "trying."
sup?

Yeah.

Some people get really bitchy at you, even if your looking them directly in the face and can hear them perfectly and everything.

Funny you should ask. I have a friend who always gets mad when I do this. He claims I'm just ignoring him but I'm actually listening. I just can't talk and play at the same time. That'd be weird.

Vagina's tend to be not all that great looking most of the time. It's all... flappy. Looks sloppy.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

My friend does that, but it's REALLY annoying because he will be hooked up to the amp and playing really loud, and I keep saying "Aaron, turn it the f*ck off! I can barely hear myself" so he turns it down, but still loud, so I complain, and he then unplugs it and plays acoustically. I hate it because it's really distracting for me, because he is really good and so I get impressed and lose my train of thought.
#11
Yeah, but it pisses me off especially when I'm recording when someone just starts talking to me.

I mean, I have my headphones on, I'm playing, why are you talking to me when it is so obvious what I am doing?

I can and do play while listening to people, and I can respond to them while playing. Oddly enough, I can't sing and play at the same time. :S
#14
Yeah I do.
People don't get frustrated with me though.

I discovered that I do that today actually. I was talking to a friend on the phone and just started jamming as she was talking to me, then she said something about it and I was like "oops, sorry. Bad habit."

Kai07 is usually playing guitar when I call him. He'll still play and talk to me at the same time.
It doesn't really bother me. As long as the person is replying and listening... who cares?
Holy hellfire. I seem to be back.

I usually finish whatever I'm playing because it annoys me when I just stop a song that I'm playing. No one's gotten annoyed at me because I look at them so they know I'm listening

I do.

If I'm sitting there playing and they come in and start talking, why should I have to stop if they are interrupting me?
#24
All the time!

A good way my friends have figured out to see if im listening is they shout out "Play a C chord!"

I do it, and they keep nattering at me XD
Quite likes Corrine Bailey Rae's new album Don't hurt me.

If I don't want to talk to that person, yes.

If I'm actually interested in the conversation I'll either stop playing or just talk whilst I play, but focus my attention on the person.

No, I don't. If someone's trying to talk to you it's rude to not give them your undivided attention.

The power to feel with others give.

my dad gets pissed at me for it; it's like people don't realize that we can play guitar using nothing but muscle memory, without even having to concentrate.
#30


Yeah I do, Online and Real life. Sometimes people are like "Jason? You there?", but thats on msn. If its real life, they tend to shout over the amplifier.

I get so wrapped into it i forget that I'm actually talking to them

Exactly, I don't get that. I don't usually even have the amp turned up, I kill the volume but I'll still be riffing acoustically, and they tend to stop talking. So I say "I'm listening to you, I'm not paying attention to the guitar." A couple of my friends who play guitar a bit don't seem to understand that it is possible to knock out some funky licks without really paying attention to what you're doing sometimes (at least once you've been playing guitar a few years).

I wish I could do that

I remember when my younger bro had his party, i was mucking around guitar, then i was playing sweet child o' mine on guitar and at the same time, i was looking at this chick and she was like "....how the f*ck do you do that?"

But I can't or listen to someone while playing guitar, it's very had for me to concentrate on 2 or more things

Only when I don't care what they have to say.

Or when they're telling a story and I want to make it more interesting. You know, theme music?
