Hello Jealous Monte. I'm afraid that the name doesn't suit you....
Nope. Best not.
Del Monte then?
I'm not sure that our Monte would want to be associated with "The Man From Del Monte".
Hmmm, where to start ....
Here's ten examples, just to get started ...
1. Bedroom rock stars who's gear related claim to fame is their prized Line 6 Spyder. That btw sounds just like a Plexi. No. better!
2. Garage rock stars who have never played a gig to more than five friends, yet they posses all the knowledge and experience of a tour hardened road warrior.
3. Self proclaimed expert "techs" who think Fenders set up specs are the end all be all of guitar set ups.
4. Those who believe luthiers work at Guitar Center.
5. Wiki educated "experts"
6. The "My Squier is better than your Custom Shop" crowd.
7. Tube haters and tube snobs. I'll group them, because they share the same defective DNA.
8. The "This modeler doesnt sound like a real amp" crowd. Who btw, have never heard the amp in question miked up in a studio.
9. All the resident experts / Pros that offer all their knowledge, yet we've never heard so much as a note from them.
10. Anyone who says "whammy bar".
Ok, the last one is a personal peeve
Or may be just people not cutting others a bit of slack?
I like whammy bar...I called them wang bars when I was kid cause I thought I was getting away with swearing...
ok lets start this out with I am from Canada.
Around here folks say eh.
When I was really young, I used to think Eh was a swear because I only ever heard it when adults were in the room.
And thats where it all started.
my friend and I had this game called Mr Guy.
We would seriously stick our lips out and pretend to smoke pipes and just say Eh to each other. we thought we were getting away with murder. our parents probably checked the house for led paint shortly after.
11. Those pickups sound sterile. I still can’t figure out how anyone can use the word sterile to describe a sound. This is usually directed at EMG pickups by people who’ve never heard them.
This is what I really like about this forum. Yeah, I laughed out loud. But no spit, I’m learning.
Now that is well put
People shouldn't talk the talk if they haven't walked the walk.
Isn't that a bit pretentious?
While I've gigged out a time or two, I've never been 'in
the band' (for lack of a better description) and most of my playing nowadays is by me, to me, and for me with me as the audience and critic. I've been playing for nearly 50 years (which is longer than a number of people here have been alive) and since joining here, have been playing, experimenting and exploring nearly every night, sometimes for several hours at a time. I've purchased 3 new guitars and a new amp over the past summer. Not bragging about it by any means, but by your interpretation this would mean my opinion is worthless and I should stuff a sock in it when it comes to recommendations or personal opinions.
While my recommendations may not carry the same weight as possibly yours and others here who are pros or working musicians, I think everyone here regardless of age, stature, profession or country of origin has a valid opinion...if for nobody other than themselves...and should be free to exercise it.
I hope that didn't come off wrong, no offense intended, but I feel I needed to air that given your statement (which perhaps I misinterpreted?)
You misunderstood my post @Strat Jacket
Your opinions and recommendations based on your experiences definitely hold their own.
You arent pretending to be an all knowledgeable guru with years of touring and recording experience either.
Youre being yourself, and offering knowledge based on what you know.
You're not the type of person I directed my comment at.
Guitar players are often pretentious.
You're being kind
I wish I was good enough to pretend to be pretentious!
You dont have to be good, just pretentious
Ha ha, I’m going to tell the wife that. Wish me luck!
