E-minor7 Posted March 4, 2012 Report Share Posted March 4, 2012 They are too much. You arrive with serious intentions of trying instruments high on your wish-list and meet nothing but strezz. It's like proposing on the Central Station in the middle of the rush-hours. The chairs are strange – the stools are stranger. Maybe there's only amps to sit on. Nowhere to put your coat, which must be taken off in order not to scratch the instruments. Suddenly you see your jacket lying on the floor beneath a co-customers ignorant feet. Those co-customers who sneaks around spying on your test-licks or trying to overpower you with out of tune Neanderthal-strumming. Then the fact you are out of tune yourself and somehow unable to get things under control. Any sense of a regular 440 hertz A totally vanished. Whining electric guitars in the background sawing their way through Smoke On The Water or dated grunge with the volume on 10. Guys, I'm investigating the flageolets of a 1962 C&W here. Over-smart salesmen who think they are 'something'n'someone in showbiz' just because they earn a living by selling picks. Supplied by the fact they know virtually nothing about Gibsons. The lame feeling when leaving the shop with a set of strings after sitting there trying HQ guitars with a humble smile on your face the whole afternoon. The sweaty feeling of absolute exhaustion when hitting the pavement with only vague fragments of what just happened remaining in your brain. The conviction you have to come back. Allrite, a grain of satire, but do you recognize the film. Seriously – I think it would be major to be able to 'rent' the shop after it's closed (or before it opens). Maybe a bit too deluxe, but how about the possibility to bring, let's say 3 guitars, home over a weekend – for a smaller price. That would ideal – nothing is better than A/B/C'ing under completely remote and peaceful circumstances. It's there and there only you are able to create the right kind of skinless encounter. …................................................…....................................Ask her out - Take her home Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
