Ive been playing guitar for a few years, and im taking my grade 6 electric in a couple of months. My friend is at about the same skill level as me, but he learns faggy acoustic riffs instead.

I have nothing against acoustic, i think its a really good form of music, but it always gets the lady's better than my shred stuff.

any sggestions on how i can show him up?

also, dont say things like "its not about that, its about the music." i know. but he's being a total dick about it so i want to crush his measly acoustic ass.

i had the same problem with my brother. i do shred stuff and he does some sweet finger picking music. he always says that i cant do what he does so what i did was to learn every song that he was going to learn and i did better than him. i kicked his acoustic ass at it.

Lol acoustic + singing will always get more girls than shred unless the girl is in to like hardcore or whatever. Seems like your a bit jealous, you could always just let it go.

Buuuut just learn a few well known songs and play them for people, Freebird, Eruption- also a lot of the stuff on guitar hero should turn heads.

if your playing guitar to impress the ladies than you suck. cause it shows you cant talk to them or impress them any other way. and it sounds like your friend isnt trying to be a douchebag by liking to play acoustic music, and if i was him i wouldnt be your friend.

or even better, shave the bum fluff beard off, learn to be witty and articulate and they will love you even more than your acoustic loving friend.

Learn to play love songs and read a lot of romantic poetry. When your friend starts trying to pull chicks from you, play a nice slow love song and after say something poetic that you ripped from someone else. Not many people(well not many people who can easily be won over by a single song) read poetry books anymore, they'll never know.

I didn't realise there was a grade system for electric guitar, besides jazz.

All of the points I would have thought to make have already been expressed. Flirting is better than relying on your guitaring. Learn acoustic as well. Grow up. Stop crying. Sabotage.

But, if you're content on letting the music earn you pussy, then learn what girls actually want to hear, and play it. But really, it'd be easier to learn to flirt.
#18
There is no hope for some people. The reason your friend has more luck with the ladies has nothing to do with how you or he plays the guitar. It's all about personality and how you treat people, and you my friend, need a personality transplant.

something doesn't make sense with TS's story. do you go out to a street corner with your guitar and amp, start wanking off to get the attention of girls?
i suspect that most girls aren't into how fast you can play guitar.

Haha, thats totally what i was thinking.
Also: shredding isnt playing guitar. Its playing notes and scales. Stop doing that. Learn riffs and solo's. Learn vibrato, learn to stretch notes to put soul in them, learn to bend, learn playing with your gain down, learn something else than sweeping and *widly widly widly widly stuff*.

If anyone being a douche bag. It's you. quote 'having nothing against the acoustic' while just seconds ago wrote "faggy acoustic". Sounds like someone is jealous...
If you want to get the ladies, first learn some manner.

You are a cunt.

Stop creating drama and act like a responsible human being. Guitar is not a competition, and of course chicks are gonna be more into acoustic shit than some shreddy shit, why do you think metal music's fanbase is still primarily made up of guys?


Also, if he's really being so much of a prick about it, you may want to re-evaluate your 'friendship.' Just being a prick back and trying to show him up makes you a worse prick than he is.

learn how to talk to girls well, and then just smooth talk your way into their pants.. beats a riff any day of the week.

rockschool is one graded thing (although I think it's crap). In the U.K. there is a few. I do the RGT ones that work with LCM/ thames valley uni.

And TS: If you play the guitar to (try and) impress girls, then give up. If you play guitar because you enjoy it, then you shouldn't care about anything else.

This is true. Go out to a bar for a beer or ten - there is more ways to get girls than instrument playing. Do you think a relationship based upon the fact that you're a good guitarist will last with just that?

EDIT - Just realised you probably aren't old enough for a drink (if you're worrying about this situation, anyway) But everything else i said still stands.

most chicks don't care about shred. Women tending to be more emotional creatures, they enjoy touching lyrics more than unforgiving technical scales.

its the way life is.

I'll also say that if you're just playing guitar to be better than your friend or to pick up chicks.. perhaps you need to drop the guitar and play COMPETITIVE sports.

You're ****ing retarded...you want to show up your friend b/c he's being a "douchebag" by playing acoustic and apparently being a better person than you? You're the douchebag...grow up you ****.


BTW, shredding isn't cool. Never has been, never will be.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!
