For some reason, if you play guitar in front of non-guitar players they'll start screaming out requests like you're a god damn jukebox. I just want to know if there's any real diversity among different area about the requests.

If you've ever found yourself in a similar situation, what songs were requested?

Usually anything from Guitar Hero games. Since that's really as close to guitar as non-guitar noobs get.

Whatever the person's favourite song is, some people get the idea that a guitarist can play any song on request for some reason.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

"Stairway to Heaven", "Iron Man", "Crazy Train", "Freebird", "Hotel California", then just about any song by Eric Clapton. Doesn't happen that often. My friends usually ask me to play "Sweet Child O' Mine" 'cause they know that I know it and then everyone just sings along, which is fun.

On one occasion, a guitarist kept saying I should play "Hotel California" or Hendrix's cover of "All Along the Watchtower" then stated, if he had a guitar at the moment, he would play them. I handed him my guitar. He didn't know how to play the songs, so he played his own stuff and started singing...

Whenever I play in front of people I have a friend with me, so that way I can say: "Hey, what should I play?" and they usually reply "How about Enter Sandman/One/Sweet Child of Mine/Killing in the Name/Symphony of Distruction/something by The Toy Dolls, because those are the ones I know. So it helps.
