  • Do you resent guys who just strum cowboy chords with their acoustic guitars?

    You know, the guy at every college party who knows the basic major and minor chords, and has all the girls swooning all over him while he strums Greenday.

        Every party I've been to it's guranteed there'll be a guy strumming a popular pop song who knows nothing about guitar except for what he needs to play those songs.


        I'm not resentful, though. That's his perogative. Plus, it really does get chicks (at least attention).

                  most folk in those situations wouldn't know the difference between mindless strumming and guitar playing

Chugging, will get you drunk faster so I'm saying I could have chugged 5 beers. Using the beer to weight relationships that have been taught to me in drivers education, we derive the equation 160/9 = 5/x. Solving for X we can estimate that if a woodchuck could chug bud, he'd be able to chug .28 Buds before passing out and getting drawn on by fellow woodchucks.

                      Not at all. I've come to realize that that's just as vital a skill as any other if not moreso. Good guitar playing starts with solid, basic rhythm playing. I always begin every practice session with reviewing all of the open chords.

                        Funny thing is, a lot of the time those guys are pretty damn good.

                          That's how I got my start playing in rock bands. Some kids came up to me at a party and asked if I had an electric. The rest is history.

                          One thing that I discovered was that as much as girls like a guy with an acoustic guitar, they like the guy with an electric guitar who sings in the band even better. Yep

                              I don't understand the hatred of open chords around here.
