ok so i was a guitar center one day,and im only like 14, but this arrogant 23ish year old walks in while im sitting there getting a feel for this telecaster and he starts to play this crappy AFI riff horribly on like the biggest line 6 half stack they have,and i mean AFI isnt even that great of a band to begin with,espacially if SOMEBODYs guitar is out of tune.so the first thing that pops into mind is to show him up and i start to play the cliffs of dover intro,and it really sounds good when i play it,im a good player.he then tells me to screw off because i apparently suck horribly.after a pathedic attempt at the crazy train intro,i go into the Metallica solo,One and he throws his F*ucking guitar and me and leaves! honestly i was stunned.You do not want to get a BC Rich thrown at you

I think that part being a good guitar is properly putting up the people who think that they can play guitar, but that just seems outrageous. How banged up was the guitar that he threw at you?

lol yeah i read the same thread also, maybe you are a dick, just because someone can't play as good as yourself doesn't mean you have to show off, nobody likes a show off.
#14
usually i just come on this website to read a bit of stuff and learn a song, but tbh m8 what you wrote, made me get an account so i could post in the thread.
I think u deserved to have the guitar thrown at you for being so arrogant, i mean okay maybe he didnt have to drown out ur sound, but thats no reason to go and make him look ****
everyone has to learn, and thats everyone, hendrix, Clapton all had to learn, so why be a dick and try to show him up, for all you know by being such an arrogant arsehole, uve just totally destroyed someones passion for guitar

Seriously, this cliché gets so old. Same for that obnoxious kids at guitar stores thread. I mean, no one buys it anymore. And even if we did, it kind of loses a lot of it's mystique after being repeated for the 2,9276563983*10^700 time, just with different names, trendy songs/bands and shred pieces.
