When I buy a guitar, I take about a minute and slide around on the fret board to see if I like the feel. Then I hand the guitar to the shop pro and say "play the shit out of this thing". I want to hear the best it can sound, not the best that I can currently play it.

Unfortunately, I'm usually in....let's call it "Stringed Instrument Center" when I'm trying out guitars, so no matter what I want to play, it always turns into a game of "great the guy next to me is going to crank up his amp, stare at me like a hardass looking for a barfight and butcher some sweeping exercises". rolleyes.gif At that point I generally just wander around until Captain Gonads has left the building and give it another go...usually just improvise some clean and distorted melodies and chords over the entire fretboard to get a feel for the instrument.

No no no - no lessons on stealing chicks! I keep it for myself hehehehehe

But anyway it was so funny hahahaha


I guess keeping that secret to yourself is a good idea...All though I have heard there are lots of girls - so we shouldn't be compeeting.

How about trading cute girls for angry males... Do we have a deal? ( I have removed their genitals! biggrin.gif )

nothing but death and thrash riffs. No solos for me, although the last time I went I played some blues.
