#1 5 Tips To End Guitar Store Anxiety
Ever feel a little hesitant when about to walk into a guitar store? I know I have. Whether it’s feeling awkward when sitting down to play with other people around or you’re just not sure how to engage the over-zealous salesman. So, I’ve come up with the sure-fire tips to ensure your guitar store visit is as beneficial as possible.
Great show Tony and Noah.Music gratitude sound really good. Do it…
First time watching. Noel reminds me (looks like) Gary Busey in The Buddy Holly Story
I know exactly what Joshua W is going through. I found Acoustic Tuesday at Episode 70, and finally caught up 3 weeks ago. Good thing @Tony P puts a bunch of material out each week to keep my focused.
As always, great show. I can’t even begin to describe how much I’ve learned from your Acoustic Tuesday shows and TAC, not to mention how much fun it all is. Well, our paths are crossing. I’ve been running ultra-marathons for 30 years now and have just started learning to play the guitar in the past couple of years. Given how much I’ve learned from you in the roughly 1.5 years since I joined TAC, I just want to return the favor to you and offer you any advice you might need with your ultra-marathon goal. I would love to know which race you’ve signed up for. Also, I lived in the Schaumburg area (your old stomping grounds) for 24 yrs but now live in the land of Thompson and Breedlove guitars, Bend, OR. Hope to see you on the trails.
#small wins. I live in England just outside London, but visit Nashville most years where I have many friends. I always visit Gruhn Guitars, originally at the old shop on Lower Broadway, and now at the new store further out of downtown. On this particular visit I’d picked up a card with a couple of Sharkstooth picks on it, and was standing by the sales counter, which at the time was unmanned, and was reading the card. In my peripheral vision I saw a guy approach me and say, ‘Do you sell replacement handles for guitar cases?’ Without looking up I replied, ‘I don’t work here, I’m just a customer’. I then looked up at the guy and was sure I recognised him. ‘Are you who I think you are?’ I asked. he came back with the perfect reply. ‘Well that depends on who you think I am’, he replied. ‘Well you look a lot like Don McClean’, I said. ‘Guilty’, he answered. He chatted to me for a few minutes and even posed for a photo, which I would have attached, but couldn’t find a way to do that. As I drove away I mused on why Don McClean would want to replace a handle, he could probably afford to buy every new case in the store! It must have been a vintage case I guess.

#small win. Actually, big win. I recently had a friend offer me his extra ticket to a house concert featuring Mile 12! There were no more than 30 people there and the band was about 15 feet away! I knew that I had heard of them before, but wasn’t sure where until I got home. They were the featured artists on AT # 83! They were simply fantastic! I bought both of their cd’s and they’re both great! Thank you for turning all the viewers onto so many great artists we have never heard of before. You guys do a great job! Love the show. I learn something new every week.
I played my first public gig at our hometown (Red Hills) festival today! Had a great time and defeated the nerves to make it through the set ha!
Love the show! I have learned a lot from you guys, thanks for being genuine and willing to share your knowledge!
Thanks, Wes Stapp from Louisville (pronouced Lewis-ville here in Mississippi Lol!
