When your dogs would rather sit at your feet and listen to you playing guitar rather than sit downstairs with the wife and put up with Coronation Street/Eastenders/Emmerdale/The Bill (insert crappy soap of your choice here)

When your 17-year-old daughter asks you to work out the chords to "That thing you do" by the Wonders.......not "Can you" but "will you"......

When the Mrs says she likes you playing "3 steps to heaven" better than the original.......

When the people across the back from you are having a BBQ and playing very loud, very crappy music ........you take the amp and guitar outside, turn everything up to 10 and hit the riff from Paranoid......and a head pops up over the fence and says, "Hey I can play guitar a bit, wanna come round and jam"........that happened to me yesterday.........

Hey I think I'm a guitarist!!!!

When the second bedroom is for the guitars, and guests can sleep on the couch...

Although I still think I'm only a so-so player, three times in the past week, while I've been playing guitar outside on my lunch break, people have walked up to me and asked "Where is your next gig? I'd like to come see you play"

How about when you travel six hours by train, or two by plane, or four by car to jam with friends?

You always take a guitar if you think youll be gone for more than 1 day.

You want to play it always.

....instead of falling asleep in class, you smile and nod while humming songs in your head and think about fingerings

And If I may add, you forego eating on your lunch hour, or alternatively, only eat non finger foods like yogurt, so that your hands stay nice and clean........ :)

I second that.

.. when the last nightmare you had was you snapping the B string on your acoustic with out having any replacements. - It probably isn't that great of an addition but I actually just had this dream.

It's not easy being green.... good thing I'm purple.

No, no - you secretly read theory books hidden inside the covers of Playboy.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

When someone says "Smoke?" and instead of taking a cigarette you hum E/G/A E/G/Bb/A...........

When you realize the difference between your wife and your guitar is one doesn't complain about being picked on.
