I found a Fish Stick in a music shop in Belfast today. I was about to get a demo when some guy walk in with he's 14 year old son wanting to buy a line 6 amp. One of the guys who works in the shop "a terrible lead guitarist" plugged in an electric and spent the next half hour playing crap in various settings while the Father and boy looked on.
I was sitting with a few acoustic guys,looking on in horror as this BRAINLESS IDIOT took over. I'm an ex lead guitarist,but never in my life have I ever done that.
WHY! do most electric players assume they are better guitarists, "OK they love to shred their licks" but why do they think we all love it. Why don't music stores have a booth were they can turn it up to 11 and spare the other customers the embarrassment of listening to some FAILED Yngwie Malmsteen.
I will phone the shop on Monday and explain why we all walked out!
