About 1 in 10 guitarists actually get good at it. The rest learn shitty blink 182 songs to impress their friends. Some of these fuckwads form bands and spread their pathetic music around the world for many idiots to enjoy because they have never heard anything better.
Real guitarists include: Jimmy Page, Steve Vai, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, John Petrucci, Eric Clapton and many other non ass holes.
2. John Petrucci is one hell of a guitarist.
theres tribes within guitarists, based on the the style and veiws of the person playing
(for those who said guitarists are arrogant)
who's arrogant? they're rich, they're good at what they do. obviously they're proud of themselves. some are assholes yes, but some aren't. people who dont play guitar can be arrogant to...
"Yeah .. you're like.. such a good guitarist man..."
2. "Hey man, i really want to get a band together so i can get my music out there and hope that people will enjoy my music and can relate to it."
Guitarists often feel a connection to their instrument in the way that it is an extension of their self; many relate this connection to an energetic flow, as the sounds which emerge from both their efforts and their instrument combined seemingly flow from the tips of their fingers like energy all the way into their veins, connecting them to life itself in an obscure way many find hard to explain to non-guitarists, but understand and relate to instinctively with those of their own kind.
Despite popular belief or bias, not all guitarists are technically brilliant, but the sounds they produce are always full of emotion and most importantly, honesty. The way to tell if someone is a guitarist is their ability to tell a story through their playing in a style that is distinctly their own.
