Wow, I feel bad for you. Make sure you tell them that most blues guitar players were black which is what started rock...Tell them that (possibly) the greatest guitar player of all time was black, and mostly of all ask them why they are stereotyping a person playing an instrument...?

They made a great job arguing, they named basically the best (black or white) in each of their genres or at least one of the best.

Wow, black parents stereotyping against themselves. Thats new... ish.

Skin color is completely irrelevant. Simple as that.

Well...I have one thing to say.

My guitar teacher was black.

And he was into metal ie; Pantera etc.

On top of that he was amazing and he skated.

So I WIN.

Seriously though, there are many great black guitar players.

There's one black dude in my town who plays the emo-acoustic crap usually saved for near albinos.

But to find a lot of good black players just take a step into the world of blues, they're everywhere you turn.

Of course, if that fails, you'll be a magnificent bassist.

Edit: No one's even mentioned fucking Bob Marley! He can't shred, true, but he changed an entire damn nation and still brings in millions on millions a year!

yea. im not black but i play. i dont think i know any people that are black and play the guitar. but. i dont see why they would want you to quit just for being black. thats like saying i cant sing rap cause im white...oh wait..i cant...

Quote by R0CKER1220
You're supposed to play the bass.


Stereotypically speaking. Just find any old blues players from the '30s. They may not have been able to shred or anything but they played a damn fine guitar.

Dude....those guys are half the reason why guitarists BEGAN TO SHRED in the 70s and 80s

I hate to tell you, but without saying your kidding to a statement such as "Black people don't play guitars...they steal them" you come across as a pretty fucking ignorant hick.

There are a lot of great Blues and Jazz guitarists that are black. Hell, musicians in general, don't just search for guitarists, look for any black person, playing any instrument.

Wes Montgomery
Wynton Marsalis
Thomas Pridgeon
Vernon Reid
The dude from Rage against the Machine
Bob Marley
etc.

If Hendrix's parents said black people dont play, and he listened, we would have never heard his awesome music...

And boooo to the dude who said blacks steal guitars.
