You know you're a guitarist when you break a finger on your left hand, and you try to use the metal splint as a slide (yeah, I tried that once -- doesn't work!)

When you're watching TV, and your friend tells you to mute it, you instinctively try to palm mute the remote.

(It was an Indie - anyone else ever heard of them? The company's based in the UK, instruments made in Korea. Quality instruments, a little Godin-like ...)
Nice guitars, so I'm told. Only one I ever played was the dragon one, and that one certainly was nice to play (even if it was a little cheesy to look at) :)

When your wife says lets go for a drive and you start looking for the address of that little known small unknown used guitar store two hundred miles away. (happens all the time)

when you break your arm and you ask the doctor to set it so you can play! (happened last year!)

when your living room has more equiptment and guitars than furniture!

When the local guitar shops call you to fix the guitars their guys can't!

When you are louder than the next door neighbor who is a drummer!

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

You know your a tastefull young guitarist when you can name more songs off the radio from your parents teenage years than your parents can.
Who needs a signature?
I mean really...
It's almost always lyrics...
or a cliche...
or garbage about me...
Lets just save YOU from the pain, ok?

You buy a new guitar, place it amongst the others you have, and your girlfriend does not even notice the new addition.
It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

You know you are a guitarist, when afterwards, you inadvertantly comment (with envy) about the long slender fingers on the young guy who drove you and your girlfriend home from the car rental shop... :oops:

You've invented one or more complicated systems for mapping letters to notes, and then use them to create chord progressions for the names of everybody you know! Then you actually tell them that their names make terrible chord progressions :-P

You break your first string and you have the other string right there for replacing. :D

After a romantic dinner, you look at your wife's eyes and say:' let's do some hammer on's and pull offs, babe.'
