When your making a list using the alphabet and something odd happens when you get to the 8th letter, for example:

...and your using a pen.

A. Bread
B. Milk
C. Bacon
D. Eggs
E. Peanut Butter
F. Orange Juice
G. Mayo
A. Paper Towels
B. Potatoes

??????? ahh man!

:roll:

You could have a longer list if you add the b and #

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

When the grandkids would rather listen to you play than watch cartoons...now that's what I call "Satisfaction!"

:D :D :D

You sing along to music saying the note.

Your personalized licence plate for your car is a chord progression.

You make choker necklaces, and bracelets out of your old guitar strings.

You make chord tabs out of your customers' six digit account numbers.

Saw a customer account number the other day: 320003

Thought: That's a G.

Realized that I was losing it :oops: and went for break.

:lol:

Ha my wife just did that today.

You know your a guitarist when your cooking the dinner and slicing the onions and the knife slips and takes the top off your finger and you dont feel it. Of course then you have to hunt through the onions for the piece of fingernail and that callus you used to have on you middle finger. Oh and when you pick up the guitar you can really feel those chord changes again :lol:

pbee :D

... when your neighbour hears you practising with the window open and asks if you'd consider giving guitar lessons to his daughter ...

You go to your local music store for a couple of sets of strings, and they won't let you out till you've shown them how this new guitar they've just got in sounds with you playing it :?

(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 ...)

when you take half an hour to carry your 65 pound tube amp home from school so you can enjoy 20 minutes of playing time before your parents get back from work.
as opposed to walking home in 10 minutes and using your 15 watt 6inch practice amp to play for 40 minutes.

wherever you go, there you are.

.....when you break your arm, and someone suggests playing slide guitar with your feet....and you've actually got your socks off before you realise the slide will never fit over your big toe........

.....when you just want to pick up a guitar and play, but can't - have to settle for playing blues harp, ar one-finger melodies with the good arm on a keyboard,......

It's just not the same, is it!!!!!

:D :D :D

when you're playing guitar with the window open, and down on the street you hear someone singing the lyrics up to your window...

(btw, this happened and I was playing Wonderwall...and i actually knew the person who was singing)
