The Guitarist’s Troubled Love Life

A fairly young, fairly attractive couple go to see a doctor and say they’re having trouble making love. ‘Could you watch us and correct any mistakes we might be making?’ asks the guy.

The doc thinks it a bit unusual but says ‘OK’

He watches for a while, offers a couple of suggestions and when they finish says ‘well things look pretty good to me, you don’t seem to have any problems’. To which the couple respond with ‘things don’t feel exactly right, do you mind if we come back next week for a little more guidance’. The doctor agrees and the couple return the following week. Once again they repeat the performance, get a tiny bit of help and leave quite satisfied. On the third visit the following week the doctor says ‘look I really don’t see any problem here, in fact I wish my love making was as good, why do you keep coming back?’

The young man says ‘well to tell you the truth, I’m a guitarist in a rock band, live in a smelly old squat and don’t make much money. she’s married to this other guy who works from home so we can’t go there. I can’t afford to take her to a motel. this place is warm and friendly, we get free coffee and magazines while we wait and I get all the costs back from Medicare.

Death of a Guitarist

David dies and goes to heaven. St Peter says ‘ how did things go for you back on earth?’ David says, ‘not too bad. I left a wife, 3 kids, a pretty good bank balance, no mortgage and my wife will get another 100,000 from the insurance.’ ‘Great’, says St Peter, ‘what was it you did while you were alive?’ ‘ Oh I was in Real estate.’ ‘Good oh, come on in’ says the St.

Bruce follows David up to the pearly gates and gets the same sort of welcome and questions. ‘yes well I left a wife and two kids, a little house in the suburbs, a few dollars in the bank, car’s paid for and they should be OK with things. Good oh , come on in.

Billy was next in line and gets the questions from the old guy. ‘yes well I left my 4th wife, most of my gears in the Cash Converters, cars rooted, never did quite make it to where I really thought I should have been.’ ‘Oh well’, says St P. ‘and which band was it that you played with?’

After the Gig

Guitarist finishes gig and is the last one in the place with the barman, who asks if he’d like a scotch before he goes home. The player says ‘sure’ and the barman plonks down a big glass of the juice and a little bowl of peanuts to go with it, then wanders off to wipe down the counter. This leaves the gun guitarist all by himself for a minute. From nowhere a little voice says ‘great gig man, you’re one hot picker’.

The player looks at the barman and says ‘thanks’ and the barman says ‘what for’ and the player says ‘for sayin’ nice things about my work’. the barman says ‘ I didn’t say nothing’.

The guitarist thinks it’s late and he’s a bit spaced so he’d better head off when another little voice says ‘yeah great licks man and nice moves too, you sure cut it up there’. The guitar player turns around and says ‘thanks’ but there’s nobody there. The feller at the bar says ‘are you ok?’ cause the picker looks a bit pale and the guitarist says ‘yeah, I think so’.

Then, as he empties his glass another voice says ‘hot licks, great look, wonderful style man, the chicks sure got off on you’ and the bloke says ‘OK! THAT’S IT! WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?’

The barman runs down and says ‘what’s your problem dude?’ to which the guitarist says ‘WHERE ARE THOSE VOICES COMING FROM? IS THIS CANDID CAMERA?’

‘What voices? What are they saying?’ when the guitarist tells the barman what was going on and what was said, the barman says ‘oh that’ll be the peanuts man, they’re complementary!’

Fifty Years in the Future

A guitarist dies and is quite please to find that he ends up standing
before the pearly gates of Guitar Heaven. St. Peter shows him in, and gives
him a guided tour.

“This is Stevie Ray’s room here…” says Peter, and the guitarist is saying
“Wow! Stevie Ray!”

“And this is Jimi’s room…” and the guitarist is totally over the moon.

Finally Peter shows the guitarist to his own room. Before Peter leaves, he
says to him,
“I have to ask. Is Yngwie here?”
Peter shakes his head sadly and says “I’m afraid he went… the “other”

The guitarist is disappointed but goes to his room and tries to get some
sleep. He is woken up in the middle of the night by someone playing a
really fast harmonic minor lick – and it sounds just like Yngwie. He
presses his ear to the wall, and listens more closely. Someone in the next
room is playing really fast neo-classical shreds through what sounds very
much like a vintage Strat. The guitarist is confused as it sounds so much
like Yngwie. The next day he tells Peter that he is almost certain that
Yngwie’s in the next room.

Peter pulls him to one side, and whispers into his ear,
“Shhh…. don’t tell anyone. That’s God. He thinks he’s Yngwie Malmsteen

Bass Humor

Late one day a local pub saw six guys walk in, obviously in pairs of two, sit down and order their favorite after-work drinks.

The first two to seat themselves and be served by the bartender were two guys working at a major university whose I.Q.s were so high they could hardly be measured! They began discussing from Quantum Mechanics to the fine points of Particle Physics, either one as brilliantly as the other.

The bartender then went over to the next pair who were “regular guys” with ordinary jobs, with average I.Q.s, schmoozing about how hard it was today to keep up with bill payments, how high taxes were, how corrupt politicians were and all the day-to-day struggles most everyone has.

The last two the bartender served were two very badly educated, ill-mannered dolts with very low I.Q.s that could barely be measured on any I.Q. test. As soon as they’d ordered the bartender overheard one say to the other, “Oh, hey, I meant to ask ya, d’you use flatwound or roundwound on your bass?”

How many bass players does it take to change a lightbulb?

  • None. They let the keyboard player do it with his left hand
  • Don’t bother. Just leave it out–no one will notice
  • One, but the guitarist has to show him first
  • Six: one to change it, and the other five to fight off the lead guitarists who are hogging the light
  • One. Five. One. Five. One. Five.

A guitar player comes to the doctor and complains about a serious deterioriation of his memory. He especially has a hard time remembering correct changes and is afraid to lose all his gigs. Since the doctor can’t find the cause, he asks the guitarist to leave behind his brain for a week in his lab for more detailed examinations. After seven days the guitar player fails to show up, and even after 2 more weeks there’s no sign of him. Finally the doctor runs into him on the street, grabs him and asks: “Excuse me, but your brain is still waiting for you to stop by and pick it up, so why don’t you show up?” The guitarist says, “Well, I think you can keep it; I finally switched to bass…”

A man gives his son an electric bass for his 15th birthday, along with a coupon for four bass lessons. When the son returns from his first lesson, the father asks, “So, what did you learn?”

“Well, I learned the first five notes on the E string.” Next week, after the second lesson, the father again asks about the progress, and the son replies, “This time I learned the first five notes on the A string.” One week later, the son comes home far later than expected, smelling of cigarettes and beer. So the father asks: “Hey, what happened in today’s lesson?” “Dad, I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to my lesson; I had a gig!”

A tour manager comes across the guitarist and bass player fighting at the side of the stage and pulls them apart asking what the problem was. “That bastard detuned one of the strings on my bass”, says the bass player, “And we’re on stage in five minutes.” “So what’s the problem?”, asks the tour manager. “He won’t tell me which string it was he detuned”, said the Bassist.
