So earlier today, I was talking with a pianist who plays mostly classical stuff. We were talking about music, blah blah, but it somehow gets to where he calls the guitar an inferior instrument.

I tried to tell him that in the world of instruments there is no real inferiority, just different applications, but he wouldn't have it. I had my guitar with me, so I took it out and played some heavy classical stuff, and he said "well, do you know what any of that means?" He thought that I didn't know any theory. What. The. Hell. He explains to me like I was a child about how since I was a guitarist I didn't have to learn stuff like intervals. Apparently by his word guitarists go mostly 'willy nilly'.

So we pretty much had a music battle, classical style, copying what each other did and upping the ante and whatnot. After awhile of going nowhere, I just said "let's see you do this, asshole" and played a single note... and bent it up a step. And left.

Rant over. Point is, (seinfeld impression) What's the deal with the guitars cultural impact creating reputations of musical incompetence?

Inferior? He can take his 88 fucking strings and stick them up his ass.

People are assholes. Deal with it.

And piano is twice as cool electric guitar, even though acoustic guitar is a millions times cooler than both.

Even though I can think of a way to engineer a piano that can bend, this made me chuckle.

This is because quite a lot of guitarists are. It's stupid to generalise though.

You can do the same for piano. My friend has never taken a piano lesson, doesn't know any theory other than what he learned from playing snare, and when reading sheet music, it takes him a few seconds to find the keys. But when he's just making up stuff, he kicks my ass. I can play sheet music and stuff, but when he's just making stuff up, he pwns me.

I don't see how people can be saying guitar is better than piano, or "piano is gay."

Guitar was barely used in history because lutes and guitars can't project very well. Piano has always been one of the most technically demanding instruments and it has inspired many more works than guitar has.


It's much easier to play a melody well on a guitar than any other instrument. The reason guitar does stand out is because you can play many notes at a time with 6 strings and can play multiple rhythms on different strings since it's not a bowed instrument.


Yes, most guitar players are ignorant.

Guitar is better than piano for one reason. You look retarded doing a power stance while playing piano. Other than that, they are equal. Except bass is superior to guitar because it's bigger.

Actually, I'm gonna speak for all bassists when I say that we feel fine. All musicians, except guitar (ironic, huh?) recognize the importance of bassists in all genres of music.

The reason people think guitar players are musically incompetent is because most bands just play 3 chords repeated over for every song.
