Okay, I got this from the "Are you a Nerd" thread, but guitar folks are nerdy.....but in a....er......"different" way. So, what makes you a guitar nerd? Here's a few of mine. * I got Guitar Tab mags all the way back to 1982 with the 1st full guitar song I learned "Bark at the Moon" * I still play "Bark at The Moon." * I seem to have too many guitars for some.....I think like 17 right now. * Yep, have the ol' digital recording studio and stuff. I had a Mackie Spike, but it turned out not to be too good. Okay, so I'm not so nerdy maybe cuz I don't have all the cool computer recording stuff. * Pedals, peadsl, pedals, and more pedals. * After 25 or so years of playing, still trying to get "that sound" that I can live with the rest of my life. * getting that sound includes spend every cent (not spent on gun stuff) getting pedals, swaping pickups, cables, strings, and of course...Amps. * I absolutely HAVE TO bring a guitar and amp where ever I go. Be it a vacation, to the girlfriends' hut, to my folk's place, work related trip, even the friggin' US Border Patrol Academy when I was there (had my Pignose amp and Stienberger set up, now I got rid of the Pignose and got the Roland Cube X10 better!). Even if I don't play it......it HAS TO be around. * Have transceded the point where I now want my guitar playing to be creative and express with my feelings vs. just trying to get laid. Well......at least with younger girls in their 20's, after all I'm forty! * I have to get a guitar everytime I break up with a girlfriend (2 guitars for a marriage). Thus why I have...er...17 guitars.......that I've kept. * I have too get guitars that resmble the women I've dated/married. Example, I used to date this girl from Czech republic while in Grad school. So when we broke up, I had to get a Alpine White Les Paul with Golden Hardware......Ooooo! On the other hand.......I don't wanna say anything about my old Gretchen Hollowbody. What about y'all?
