Yeah so my brother asked me this today, and it was a really hard question for me to answer.

Would you rather have a $10,000 shopping spree at guitar center, or have a backstage pass and a jam session with your favorite band?
#4
I'd probably be too intimidated to jam with my favorite band. I'd take the cash.

The money.
God knows I'd probably make an ass out of myself in front of Mikael Åkerfeldt, causing me to go into deep depression or some shit.
#8
Are you kidding?! Money all the way! I'd burn every record I had by my favourite band and never listen to them again for $10,000.

Just kidding. But I would take the money.

Dude, that's only £5000. And everything in Guitar Center ****ing sucks from having 13 year old retards play Pantera on it.

Jam. I'm pretty satisfied with my current gear anyhow.
#14
Man, That would be tough to play in front of mike McCready and Eddie Vedder. But would be damn awesome. I'm gonna Jam with Pearl Jam
"We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment"

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.
#15
Money, easy. First of all, I'd never be able to hang with my favorite band. Their talent far surpasses my own. Second, $10000 is so much money!!!
#16
i was tempted to say cash, but hell id rather jam with eric clapton, before he goes too...

EDIT: also, 10grand really isnt that much, and id pay way more for a jam with a player that i really respected. 10000 would go by pretty quick at guitar center anyways.. 3000 strat, 3500 amp, etc...
#18
i wouldnt even know what to do with 10k. I would buy a PRS 24 and some tube amp and a new drum set but that still wouldnt equal 10k.

If i could chat with the band for a good 4 hours and whatnot then i would choose the band.

If $10k was all it took to get Kyuss in the same room and playing together it'd be worth every penny. They've turned down offers of over a million though.
#22
jam with pantera. dime was such a good guy he'd probably convince rex to give me some of his gear.

I voted for the 10,00 dollars, but now that I think about it...a jam with Led Zeppelin would be absolutely priceless...

Jamming with a favorite band, by far. How the fuck can you take money over that?
||=(|''''|''''|''''|''''|)>-----
#28
Jam.

I mean, if I could jam with Opeth, I would be literally like a ****ing giddy schoolgirl, I'd be talking a thousand miles per hour and probably shake Mike's hand at least ten times (and probably hug him..>>

Play a dual solo of Under the Sun (Everyday Comes and Goes) with Tony Iommi? I would gladly give my life away to do so.

Money.
I could just imagine the jam....

Petrucci: So, how many notes can you play per second?
Me: I dont know...
Petrucci: Is it under 451764589164579164756249756279451405102405? If so, GTFO!!


If it was solo artist, I might do it though, I wonder what it would be like to jam with Buckethead...

EDIT: TS, does it have to be guitar center? Or can it just be any music store of your choice?

10 000 dollars is not impossible to get. Tracking down Sirenia or Moonspell, and getting them to jam with me? I'd say that's pretty much impossible.

that, and I dont even know where a guitar centre is around here.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
#37
Also, seriously $10,000...I'd spend that at home, not on GC., (I lie a bit, I'd buy a PRS and an ENGL Blackmore, but I'd still have roughly $7,000 leftover)

I would love to hang out with Tool. I would probably sell my little sister to be in the same room as them. Band all the way.
I'll be your number one with a bullet.
