You know you're a female fingerpicker when you break a fingernail and your first thought is "Dammit, lost a pick!"

... happens to us guys, as well.

... you go to a wedding and hope the live band will let you "sit in" for a song or two.

...you just can't get used to wearing your beltbuckle in front.

...when you're walking to the office and see a guitar pick on the sidewalk and think, "Wow, score!"

...when you're absently tapping your fingers on the table at a staff meeting and realize it's a scale pattern.

...when you see a concert either live or on television and are the only one around you who thinks about breaking down after the gig,. while every one else is simply enjoying the music.

...when the guitarist in said concert flubs a note and you go, "That's okay man! Keep rockin'!"

...when someone asks you what strings you use and you say, "I dunno, whatever was on sale that day. Zero-tens probably..."

...when you're stuck in traffic and see a kid with an electric guitar slung over his back, waiting at the bus stop and think, "Hehe...yah, band practice...."

...when you're walking somewhere and suddenly hear someone strumming a guitar nearby and stop to listen.

...when you sit and remember all these things :)

When you come up with something from the top of your head on the bus to camp and someone near you says "hey, i know that song!" (happened like 5 times! was flattering then annoying).

When you listen to a wedding band, and you think "They're not playing it right - I could do better!"

It happened last Saturday. Some bands should just lay off certain songs...

You're probably right. It's not so much that they were "bad" - but they were "off". It made it hard to dance to some songs. But the singers were excellent, which helped. And it's true I wanted to go up and play on a couple of songs...

But you're right, I shouldn't put them down.

....when a "date" consists of sharing a bass, teaching each other how to play your fav songs, and comparing playing techniques

When you are driving to work and you pull up behind a taxi where the meter is visable. Said meter reads 4.40 and your mind goes to A 440 hz

Yes this really happened

first of all people I can't play the guitar at all just starting so I reckon your a Guitarist when someone else says " you play guitar "

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am

You get a guitar for your girlfriend, and you'll miss her a little anyway.
