Yes, yes, we all know guitars are the best thing since boobies, but to every good thing there IS AT LEAST ONE BAD THING. Name it.

For me it'd be the calluses. I can't feel with the tips of my fingers on my left hand - it sucks! Sure, you get used to it, but I'd prefer to be able to feel things. But if calluses didn't form playing guitar would hurt.

Strings breaking, expensive hobby, and callouses.

Ya well when i wrestle/play with my dog he sometimes jumps on my back and starts humping me. But should he be doing this if he is neutered?

When someone finds out you play, and they ask you what kind? Its like well I play guitar...and their response is "oh can you play an acoustic or an electric?". For some reason that drives me crazy lol.

Not having enough money to buy a new amp and thus having to put up with a piece of **** Fender 15R Frontman for years.

Ooh, I have the same amp.
Sad, is it not?

It'll be forever until I can afford a decent Peavey.

I find that funny... and I have a good story about that too. I'll tell it if you like.


Well the worst thing has to be getting shown up by a much better guitarist. That's just the worst feeling in the world when you're playing with someone in a totally different league and all you want to do is keep up, but you can't. That or getting told that you're worse than someone else that can play something from top 40 radio, and you're playing cliffs of dover or something.

It's too expensive.
The pain in forming callouses.
Being afraid of using my tremolo bar, due to a floating bridge and finicky tunings.
Tuning in general.
The overall ignorance of guitar players, especially when it comes to elitism.

The uncomfortableness of sitting down in my arm chair and trying to play the guitar at the same time

Floating bridge tremolo's. I hate tuning and re-stringing the bastards.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

The worst part is that in order to get rid of it I have to drive all the way to Mount Doom to have it incinerated.

What a piece of **** it is.

Having bad days (playing wise). It just gets me so frustrated at everything.
It all makes sense
We're capable of beauty
Through sounds that make on cringe
The dogs only hear us now

LOLz play Ir0n M4n!!11!!!
Yeah and the next worst thing is that if you play guitar, people wont recognize you for anything else.
Say you are asked to go somewhere but you cant for some reason.
They'll say, "oh, are you gonna go home and rip it up on guitar?lolol he plays guitar!!11!"
WTFux, I have other talents!

when your better than a noob at guitar and they are all cocky and say they are better than you cause they just learned how to play a really easy song, like the ones they give you to practice at school, then when you show them a hardcore song they are all like "yeah i thought you that".
i hate stupid fags like that.
there was so many at my old school

Probably callouses.... Expense in gear. People asking you to play a certain song, and if you don't know that one song, you suck.
