guitar PLAYERS

Now, I have nothing against guitar players, since some of my best friends are guitar players. My issues lies with guitar PLAYERS(chach)
Again, I have no problem with guitar players, in fact i'm learning(slowly) to play. However, it becomes a problem when all the three chord wonders begin to congregate in high traffic areas and assualt my ears with their best john mayer/dave matthews/iggy pop version of Awesome God or blessed be your name or whatever other song. Mayer and matthews are very popular for more than a few reasons, not the least of which are, a) they have a song selection that is greater than 2, b)they are musicians c) people pay them to play

Now , chach's can be found just about anywhere these days, playing there guitars in hope to serenade the freshman girls into thinking that because they can play guitar(never more than three chords) and loosely know the words to Awesome God they are meant to be together forever, atleast forever in the sense for a semeseter, and by semester i mean week. Also what's funny about chach's is that they'll be playing and trying to make eye contact with girls, the funny part is, that most of these guys are not good enough to look up and keep changing chords. So as they finally make eye contact they go from a G minor to a beet red because all of a sudden their skills have fled the scene.

Chach's shouldn't be limited to musicians, anyone can be a chach, the only requirement is nominal to no skill in an area of interest(sports etc) and use that skill in attempt to pick up freshmen.(chach's are not effective on upperclassmen, or anyone capable of feeding/dressing themselves for that matter) Also common here at school are jock chach's playing with their shirts off constantly, but only in high traffic areas, in between classes. My friend has a paintball gun that says topless jock chach's can still scream like school girls.

So, if you have a nominal skill, keep it to yourself, it's embarassing .
