Guitar Lesson #5

No one likes the guy who brings a guitar to the party when he wasn't invited to do so. Don't be that guy.

    Hmmm. I'm not sure I agree with that-- at least, not all the time. It's one thing if it's a large party with bunches of people the guitarist doesn't know, and another thing if it's a gathering of friends. The guitarist doesn't have to play the guitar after all--I've gone to places where the thing spent the whole evening resting against the wall. It's nice to know that if someone says, "Hey, let's have a sing-along!" the guitar is ready. Of course, I've usually just told the host, "I have a guitar, let me know if you want me to bring it."

    Too true. I had in mind the scenario of the larger party with the guitarist playing uninvited. A friend/family gathering is different. Family and friends are more likely to know you have a guitar, know you like to play it and know it's likely you brought it along. The former just comes across as, I don't know, uppity.
