Members Invader.CC Posted June 18, 2010 Members Share Posted June 18, 2010 This is good..I was in an area of town dropping off some demos to a couple of places that have requested demo's and booking info for our band...Anyway on the way to the place i passed up a guitar store and like always when i see a store i never been in before made a mental note to stop in on the way back... Upon walking up to the store i noticed a couple things..One was that it had very nice woodwork on the outside of the windows and a very nice window display..What this told me is this may be a little more upscale then what i am used to.. So in i go and i was right..It catered more towards high end acoustics Martin ,Taylor,Guild,Breedlove..The manager was speaking to a older lady and what i assumed was her son ..I kinda of overheard the conversation the kid was wearing a slipknot shirt and the store person was telling the mother how if the kid wanted to learn to play guitar he must learn the basics first and start by learning classical guitar and sight reading..I'm a guitar instructor also and although there is some merit to this i do not believe it is the only way to learn to play the guitar. But this was non of my business..So i nodded and walked on.. Well a few minutes later the previous mentioned person asked if he could help me...I asked if i could check out this PRS amp that i had never seen before and also wanted to take a look at a Yamaha hollow body with a little to high of a price but not unreasonable..He went and got me a cable and set the amp at volume levels that he felt was appropriate..I noticed at this time that this guy had certain female qualities to his talk and manner plus had that kind of whiny way about him..Which makes no difference to me ..Its not my thing but to each there own.. Well i settle in and start playing..He comes back a few minutes later ask what i think i start to respond when all of a sudden his eyes go wide open and he in a loud manner says what do you think you are doing..I'm like totally struck by his change in character and start looking around for some one else doing something when he yanks the guitar out of my hands and shuts down the amp.. He starts going on about how i could come into his store and risk damage to one of his guitars and who do i think i am...Realize i still have no idea what he is talking about..I try to respond and he puts one hand on his hip and the other in my face like to silence me from answering...I still have no idea what he is talking about and he says just leave so i start myself out of the store but i finally got to ask what did i do to offend him.. He starts bitching at me because i play with a shaved down quarter for a pick like many blues players.. He was going on about how it can damage or break strings..I left without saying another word in total disbelief... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
