I mean seriously nobody knows that I play guitar at all. Only about 5 people know excluding my family. I only tell people if they ask me if I play or what I do in my spare time. In a way it's kinda sad. I stay in my room most of the time just playing and writing stuff. Anybody else like this?

I somewhat used to be until I played at our school's talent show.
I think it's good because you don't brag to everyone about it like most people do. Those people that don't even play, but own a Squire.

I like to play guitar inside of my closet because it's neat to do so.. Does that make me a closet guitarist?
#5
Same. I was a closet guitarist until my school talent show too.
I hate guitarists who brag, so naturally i want to, as Ghandi would say, "be the change you want to see in the world."

Dude... playing in the bathroom is awesome for some reason. It's just you, the guitar, and the toilet. No other distractions. I love it.

But I was the same way. Only my close friends, and people that have seen me play knew I played. But on the last day of school, some people brought some acoustics and one electric and were jamming. I asked if I could play the electric and did some blues soloing. It was pretty fun.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

I realized not that many people know I'm a guitarista while back. And because I want to get in a band, I started advertising the fact that I play. A lot.

People tell me all the time that I "look like a musician," so it's not really a surprise that I play guitar when I tell them.

Yeah, not to many people know I play.
I only mention it whenever it's brought up.

Well during last semester I was in a music class so I basically had to bring my guitar everyday so it's not like I could hide it.
#19
Well seeing how I have a guitar necklace, have my headphones in a lot combined with wearing a bunch of guitar T-shirts and have long hair. People pretty much assume I play guitar, which I do.
#20
I'm like that too, but people aren't as shocked when they find out, because my main group of friends consists mostly of musicians.

yeah me to...

Well, I play guitar all the time at school and preform when I can.
People don't really pick up I play guitar from how I look though.

Sure, I wear band tshirts, but I also wear other mainstream clothes like superhero tshirts, hoodies, skate shoes etc.

I think I do have a rather big ego about being good at guitar because i'm finishing up my final year of graded guitar performance so i'm in the upper 5% of my schools music.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

quite a few of my friends know that i play, but i dont really have the chance to play around them. i generally play in my room but i have a coupe of friends with whom i jam. i do intend to join a band quite soon though.

Quote by Spoony_Bard
Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.
#28
It's just a matter of time really. I only tell em when they ask what I like to do in my spare time or what I want to do for a living. After a while most of the people I know or are befriended with know that I play.
#29
a few people know i play, but i try not to make it very widespread to avoid that awkward "oh! play me something!" moment

like...what do i play?!

also, maybe ille wait like 5 years and constantly practice and then when someones like "wow do you play guitar?" i can be like "yeah, you know, just a hobby..." then play some mad awesome solo and they'll be totally surprised...

Hey, watch what you say, that's my sister you're talking about!
She's honestly only played her Squire about three or fours total in the like 6 months she's had it.


Honestly, I think if anyone knew I played guitar, I'd brag about it... but I suck so I keep it quiet around people who've never seen my room/guitars
#33
I'm a 'closet guitarist' too. Only a few of my friends know I play guitar. I think its probably because I don't try to bring up the topic in every conversation. I don't talk about playing guitar because I am worried the person I'm talking to will say I'm not good at guitar, and assume I play guitar to be cool.
#34
I used to do this thing where I would tuck a pick behind my hear so I would always have a pick. I got the idea to do that when I saw Wayne's World. However when I did I had long hair so it would always cover up my ears so nobody could really see. However I had recently gotten my hair cut so it was a lot shorter. Not realizing this, I continued this habit until a girl saw it tucked behind my hear and asked if I played guitar. I said 'Yes' and went back to what I was doing. She then asked 'Are you really good?' Not trying to brag I said 'eh, I'm alright'.

During my music class when we were just jamming I would stop playing whenever anybody that wasn't in the class (it was a pretty small class) entered the room, I would just stop playing. So they wouldn't think I sucked.
#35
a closet guitarist i am certainly not... well not since i joined a band.
I love standing next to some hot chick in the line for a gig, that couldnt give a **** about who u are, then you announce to ur mates that they will have to pay to see you here as a joke, they ask if you're in a band, you say yes and suddenlly hot girly likes you and becomes drawn to your awsom e-penis.

I'm like that. I don't really go out to tell people I play guitar. If they ask I say yea but I never tell them what kind of music I'm into because they will most likely be turned off haha

playing in the closet sucks, being ganked by coats and ****, not my style of playing. Once i held a contest with a friend, he thought i gave up playing guitar after 18 months, then i raped him with who plays the best song.
