So i was thinking of playing at lunch, just like around. Its not like a set up thing. I just want to bring my acoustic and play outside at lunch or in a hall. But i never had courage to do it...incase someone walks by and is like "i can wreck you" or "you suck, il rip you apart with my dragonforce solo"

Dragonforce is overated i find lmfao..

K so what are songs i should play? and how should i build up confidence in my self.

Take your guitar to school and play whatever you want, and screw anyone who calls you or challenges you to a guitar duel.

I saw a guy and I was like... cool, now play something awesome!! Well I thought that..

Just get into the mindset that other people's opinions are inconsequential. That's the only way to build confidence. It'll take a while, but eventually you'll just be contented with yourself.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I do it. Other guitarists tend to think it's douchey, everyone else - staff included - thinks it's awesome.

Do what you want.
#15
Aslong as you're not trying to impress people then go for it, just play what you want. Why should it matter what anyone else thinks? I thought that was what music was about anyway?

Bark at the Moon... acoustic version ftw.

Nothing wrong with playing in school, just don't be a dick about it.

just dont hang in a populated area, take a back corner or outside.

I'd say go where people don't go a lot, so not in a super crowded place. If you do like others said, you'll look like a douche!

^omg we had the same though!!

Play classical or Jazz.

If you chunk out bull**** chords and sing, it'll accomplish two things. 1.) You'll make it apparent that you have no talent and 2.) You'll make it apparent that you only brought it to get chicks.

If you play "art music", you can claim you're practicing to earn the respect of your fellow musician.

The only people that I've known to do that are complete douchebags. Don't do it.

ah play something you can't quite play perfectly and practice it. Make sure you can sort of play it because.. you don't want to sound terrible.

Bring something you want to learn and learn it.

All the people that say only douches do it are arrogantly stupid. I agree: as long as you don't do it to impress people, it's okay. Bring it to school for your own enjoyment. However, when I used to do it at school, lunch was never long enough.
#31
It's acceptable if you're good enough to impress other guitarists

Please don't be one of those posers who buy an accoustic guitar just to bring it to school and don't even know how to play.

I know I always seem some douche kid at my school playing his ****ty acoustic in the main hallway bench thinking he's bomb and everything just because he's switching between different basic chords like E minor and A major while sporting his AC/DC shirt

elliott smith stuff dude

yeah but the tuning for that..


i bring my electric to school(without an amp) at least once a week for spare, not to impress ppl or show off or get made fun of, just to play guitar, write new songs, not just hang out talking. its my hobby, and i will do it where ever and when ever i can.

i think TS should go for it and just play what you usually play, dont worry about entertaining ppl, do it for yourself. but thats just me.
