What every guitarist should know- Funny!!!!

Post by Ron's Brother » Thu Jan 13, 2011 9:49 am

a list of pretty funny things that all guitarists should know. pretty much works out to a what "not to do"

full article here:

1. Play really fast solos- The more notes the better. Please do not concern yourself with good phrasing or timing or expression; only play the notes as fast as you can. The best place to practice these techniques is at the local music store. Ask to try out a guitar and amp, turn it up really loud and then proceed to play really really fast. I bet everyone in the store will stop and say; "Wow, he is really good, I wish I was him." The store employees will also want to become your friends. They won't be annoyed with you at all. The true musician only plays fast.

Hysterical! I've definitely worked with a few guys who've "got it down."

only a few???? LOL

I can seriously say, i have have seen each one of these things... except for maybe the "frown at the bass player" and that one is just funny! And I just might do it at my next show.

#18: When you fluff a chord because you're too drunk and/or stoned and/or totally in love with yourself to admit you don't know which friggin' song you're playing, simply turn in the direction of your rhythm guitarist/bassist and hold your guitar out in front of you to show him which (wrong) chord you're on. It should be easy to see across a dark, smoke-filled stage. Bonus points for attempting to disguise this move as part of your usual on-stage shtick.

3. Learn the intros to popular songs such as crazy train. Stop playing when you reach the hard part with chords
This is me. I know 'em all.

You have to wonder sometimes about the back story.
