    Ok i'll start.

    pick stealing gnomes

    a person saying a guitar is out of tune when it's in dropped D tuning. DADGBE

    People who forget that playing guitar is supposed to be fun.

    People who mess with the settings/knobs on amps,pedals,guitars.

    Freebird!

    people who play the solo from Stairway to heaven with the distortion on

    "That song sucks,play something popular" Grrrr.

    Other guitarists that insist the anything other than a Les Paul is a POS.
    "Best guitar player" lists.
    The "tube vs. solid state" debates and purists on either side.

    I know a little musical theory, but only a little.
    So why do guitarist tune the lower E down one step to a D? What is gained? And what if your song calls for a G chord, for example?

    Primarily for a "darker" sound, and it makes low string power chords into a simple straight barre.

    There are "G" chords all over the fretboard, just find one that you can make that sounds right.

    Something to do with being 14 years old, having long stringy hair, and want to play "power chords".

    What's wrong? Need those dual humbuckers to cover up the sour notes?:D
    I also prefer tube amps but would rather hear a good guitar player through a Line 6 than a bad one through a Marshal half stack or a Fender tweed.

    Of course many classic recordings used tube amps.

    You know Line 6 makes tube amps as well don't you?

    Plus the fact that tube amps sound best when cranked,compared to Solidstate amps which lose their tone when you crank them up.

    To add.

    One time when i played metal,a friend of someone singing a rap song loudly.

    People who keep saying that metal is emo,it isn't.

    I changed my opinion about the Line 6 when I saw Yes a couple of years ago, and Steve Howe was playing through an all Line 6 setup.

    The guitar I play most often has P90's in it, but I do love the humbucker sound. Also, I do own and often play a Strat, and a Rick, and even an Ibanez. I'm thinking of getting a custom made Carvin in the near future.

    Yeah,one thing i don't get is the line 6 hate.



    Saving up of course for the FBV MKII shortboard,it's impossible to turn on the distortion boost by turning the drive knob past noon.
