Wht's the best way to make parents see.....guitar is not a time waste!! any ideas? :help: :help:
Get good enough at it to become famous and make money with it.
play some nice tune......to impress them.....and when they are out......play rocking .....metalheaded tunes!:grin:
Show them that what they listen to sucks. And also play a catchy, impressive riff or solo.
like me ...hehehe!
may be u should play something they like...an old song,their favourite or something...say it was specially 4 them u prepaired it...
play guitar ..... instead of logging on IGT 24/7 ...... and telling them that you are working on guitar related stuff.
let action speak.
dude this is going to be very harsh ...
dont take it personally or taht it is directed towards anyone in particular but as they say
a person once makes his mind (usually in his youth) ...
it is almost impossible to change his perceptions when he reached middle or old age ...
You know what? If they start encouraging you to play the guitar, you'll lose your motivation in a few days!! : I know it's strange, but that's how it works! The more they discourage you, the more you'll fall in love with your guitar :rock:
Don't take it to heart yaar!
since when was music a waste of time??
tell them if u hadnt been playin guitar u would have used those energies to be a drug dealer,a rapist
and a dacoit.
PLAY SOME CLASSICAL STUFFS ON IT AT TIMES ....... AND SOME GOD SONGS !!!! They'll get bowled 4 SURE !!!!!!!
Show them the video of Lithium by Nirvana and tell them that you would do all those things in the future if they let you play guitar. :beer:
what about the VDO of Jeremy ... ?
Stick up a huge poster of Prince in your room and dress up like him. Also immitate his behavior. You are sure to get a new guitar as a gift.
i guess Poison n KISS are even better for posteer images ...
n get some biographies on Poison ... read em aloud at the dinner table
KISS in not just about poster .. class music too ...
They had their own doll collection series too !!!!!!!
and a comic book by Tod McFarlane and a video game
The concept of Glam Band came from them.
Kiss has a record too. Gene Simmons is the most influential bassist ever. Ranks way ahead than any bassist you might have ever know. Ace Frehley is the most influential guitarist ever. Kiss is the most influential band ever. There are more number of artists who took up music because of Kiss than all the other influential bands put together. Kiss had the record of breaking maximum guitars on stage.
hey that is strange ...
i never heard KISS :shock:
Check them out. Nice band. Rachael Bolan bassist of Skid Row calls them Heavy Metal Beatles.. Infact the entire band Skid Row was heavily influenced by Kiss. Rachael Bolan saw the cover of Kiss Alive after hearing it and wanted to be the person who was on the cover. It turned out to be Gene Simmons the bass player, so Rachael Bolan wanted to become a bassist. Talk about influence man ...... :beer:
