    You're one of the minority who still use vacuum tubes.

    You read musicians friend,even though you can't afford most of the stuff in the catalog.

    You always have someone knocking on your door to "turn it down".

    What? WHAT YOU SAY? I can't hear so good......

    you can read tabs better than sheet music.

    When someone says "Tube" you say,better than solid state.

    you know everyone at [big chain music store] by name because you go there a lot,but you never buy stuff from there.

    Instead of re-tuning your guitar to open G, you just buy another guitar and keep it tuned in open G

    You not only know what a "Bigsby" is, you want one.

    Ya know, I never used alternate tunings when I was younger, because I thought they were "lazy".

    I use them all the time now, I guess age makes you lazy. Also, some tunes just don't sound right in standard tuning. Take the Rolling Stones "Can't You Hear Me Knocking?"...it's in open G, hard as hell to play in standard and it sounds like crap in standard.

    o.O

    I know that some songs call for tunings like drop D and such.

    Two bands that use Drop D:

    Soundgarden

    Alice In Chains(actually it's C#)

    Drop D is easy, that's just detuning one string. I have a Les Paul that spends most of its time in double drop D tuning, and I have a Strat that has never been out of Open G.

    I bought the Strat to try to get a better David Gilmore sound, but when I played it, it was much more Keith Richards sounding, so I put it in Open G and it's been there since.

    I play Pink Floyd on my Gibson SG with P90 single coils.
