ever walked into a guitar store, plugged in and ended up jamming with another guy you didn't know, perhaps even got an audience going on ?
I personally haven't experieced a guitar store jam yet, but i always find such stories very entertaining, so post away yours (lots of details, please )!



(PS: made up stories are allowed, as long as they don't sound like it )

I have stopped playing when someone tries to jam with me. I don't go to stores to practice I go to shop.

If I'm playing something it means I am serious about buying it and want to check it out.

dude, there's no need for the over the top seriousness.
this is about when you kind of accidentally start jamming, you didn't mean to at first but it started happening, you know what i mean ?

lol - i work a lot and don't really go to guitar stores unless i'm buying something.

i try to be respectful of the employees at the shop as well as the other serious customers.

if you're in there dropping a 1k or so on a guitar it makes it hard if some guy wants to play with you.

when I do go to a store i go during the week when school is in session.

well, one time i was tryin out a few guitars to consider buying in the next few weeks (never ended up gettin one though :/) and some dude was tryin out the same guitar next to me, and a dude was tryin out a bass as well, and we just started exchangin solo's over a 16 bar blues :P i ended up buying the pick i was using, and the other guitarist bought the amp i'd been using, god knows what the bassist did...he started another jam as we left lol

Yeah....I brought my Shecter into a GC once and started playing an Arch Enemy riff....I think it was Revolution Begins. Some other dude about one row over started playing the other pieces and then ANOTHER guy started playing the harmony to what I was playing. We got all the way through the song....twas pretty badass

The guitar store that actually has capabilities (decent guitars, more than one MG10 plugged in etc) has a sign saying "no Jamming" and when you ask to try a guitar, you need a deposit down on it first. So you're a bit ****ed unless you know the exact guitar you want eh?

Some guy with only much experience in the open chords guitar rythm department (basically acoustic player) was trying to show me the chords to "happy birthday" even though they didn't sound quite right, and I just improvised mex over the chords while he attempted to singer happy birthday, it sounded okay, even if the chords didn't fit the song he was playing. ^^

Yesterday I jammed with an old death metal player from the area, he was trying out an XXX and I immediately said "Old school death metal player?" and he says "yeah how'd you know? I go "well there is a disctinctive sound" and we jammed and talked for like 45 mins, he even told me I could shred, and this guy had been playing for like 20 years, so I was pretty happy.
