Why the fuck would you want to pass yourself as Bon jovi
Do all the YouTube assholes poorly covering shit count in this thread?
if you are doing spur-of-the-moment original riffage or noodleling, then it's okay to pick it up and fuck with it for five or ten minutes. That's what instruments are for. But immediately busting out a full Stairway ("and everyone on down the road...") expecting an engaged audience full of deep eye contact? Heh.
I'm so glad my friends don't have guitars just laying around, waiting for some schmo to pick it up and play a silly song that he isn't very good at. Wasn't this played out in some show, or skit? Where the guy has to constantly start over.
If I could play, and did this, I would only play metal songs.
No one has said Dave Matthews Band yet?
Edit: sunn-bro mentioned 'You and Me', so, yes.
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
We used to get out mouth harps which might be just as bad. Bongos, ok I know ... cr****

Two things I've learned from this thread:
1) Your parties are boring if there is someone getting enough attention to pickup an acoustic and do this
2) All those friends you have who perform such acts already suck scrotum because obviously the greatest group party acoustic song of all time is
nick drake songs and handing them back the guitar still in open D tuning so they don't know what the fuck to do with it
+1 on Blackbird
northside groove...southside groove....eastside groove...westside groove
My best friend (the dude who regularly did Radiohead/The Misfits at our parties) was a quiet dude in the dorms. The first time we spoke, I saw him with a guitar and asked him to play something. What he did was impressive, so I said, "Now play Over the Hills and Far Away by Zep." He played it perfectly, I sang it horribly, and we've been friends ever since.
The first time no, but he brought his 12-string when we got an apartment with two other friends and it was a constant request. I also forced him to learn John Fahey stuff to hear it on that. Dude's a better guitar player than anyone else I've ever met, and most people I've ever seen.
Wonderwall. Every Fucking Time.
when i was younger and way more naive and would play at parties (mostly by drunken request, with som bullshit "no, no i cant...ok" crap)
it was mostly the decemberists. unless i wanted to have sex, then it was asilos magdalena by the mars volta.
Whilst attending college, I was asked to come into one of the dorm rooms and play for a girl I knew and some of her friends. By the time I was done, I was one guy playing for about 20 coeds. I ended the evening having one of the best encounters of my life, up to that point.
Being "that guy" can have its advantages.
Why do young women want to fuck guys strumming an acoustic and singing tired covers?
You would be amazed how many times I would get approached after playing shows. I thought it kind of silly, to be honest. Not that I didn't enjoy the attention, of course.
so how many of them did you bed that night?
