Well pretty much my whole school knows I play guitar, since I'm in a band and all. This mysterious kid thats a freshman always comes up to me and asks hey how long have you been playin, what songs can you play, things like that to judge my skill level. Obviously he plays guitar as well as he asks me things like do you have an American Stratocaster or Mexican Made Stratocaster, yet he never admits it. I was just wondering if any of you guys have these "closet guitarists"

My brother-in-law. When I was down in the States, I took him with me to get some strings and he was playing this great lick on an acoustic, but he has never admitted to ever learning or playing the guitar.

Guitar Battle, With or Without souls at stake

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.

I'm somewhat of a closet guitarist. I never talk about playing guitar in fear of being a gigantic dick with my huge ego. I played the talent show at my school back in June and everyone was asking (before the show) if we were good... so I said yes, we are awesome, when in fact the act kind of sucked and the song was even worse. Oh well

Yeah, some guitarists have a tendency to be over ego-ed dicks, for example theres this guy that plays guitar for this "Punk-Rock" band, we kinda don't like each other you see I call him a mediocore guitarist that plays powerchords and he calls me an old fart that plays blues licks.

Theres this one asian dude and looks like a complete looser and my friend Patrick told me he's in his band and i was like "lolwut?" and the kid came over to me and patrick picked up my friends acoustic and started ripping out some amazing sweeps and leads, put the acoustic down and said in all seriousness "Sorry, Im not the best" and i just said back to him " "

i wouldnt do that, the kids skill is a variable, he's unknown. he'll probably play Eruption with his c0ck or something and then TS will be like "oh noooooooooooes" as his souls is sucked into the vortex and his head explodes and grows back as a pineapple and then then the kid has a Quickening and becomes a forty foot tall minotaur and starts shredding the fvck out of the city and the cops cant shoot him because he's deflecting all the bullets with hes shreddage skills and then he'll be all like "OH HELLLLLSSXZZZZZZ YYYYEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH"

and thats what will happen

Ask him a question back... maybe?

Invite him to jam?

It sounds like he's asking you stuff and you reply and then just stare at him until he runs away and cries.

That's no good.

I do, I ask him if he plays he always tells me he "doesn't his dad plays" its usually an oh... and he kinda awkwardly walks away. Maybe I will ask him to come over with "his dad's gear"

Just once I want to go to a large gathering or something with someone playing guitar, go, "Hey, can I see that?" And then pretend to teach myself guitar, much like in 2112 by Rush. I would start by playing the open strings, then fret a few notes, then play a chord, then a chord progression, then start slowly soloing until I'm shredding. Then I'd just look at my hands, go "Whoa!" and walk away.

Ya Ya Mon. Reminds of one time I was at my friends party and that same "Punk Rocker ass hole was strumming on his n33t p0w3r choards" So I basically snatch the guitar from him and play a solo, a random solo in the key of B, so hes all mad and embarrassed he storms off to the bathroom, and hated me from that moment on.

I'm a closet guitarist. A few of my mates know, but I mostly keep it quiet. The one time I revealed I do play at a Prefects gathering earlier this year, this other guy who's like the best guitarist in school (seriously, he's almost a young Yngwie) who hates me felt a need to school me. Since then, I've kept my mouth shut about it.

How does what I said remind you of that, or have anything to do with this? Did you just want to open your glorious mouth and suck your own dick?

Me and my keyboardist friend are pretty much closet, mainly because if you play bass around here, no-one will care if you can play Jaco, playing the damned four notes over and over again (Ahem, Teen Spirit) is enough. Once, we invited a guitarist and a drummer to jam. Bad. We decided on some Floyd stuff, but no. Some chicks came to hear them play, so they insted played a ****ty RHCP song. Over and over again. Meh, if I even talk to them about some theory, they call me a nerd. They don't know a single kind of notation. That's actually one of the reasons why I switched to bass, and went on to form a band with my friend. Without guitars.
