    Hi Guys,

    Bit of a weird topic, but just wondered if you guys were anything like me in this respect.

    Ok, here goes...

    I "sing" guitar parts for songs. Everyone who knows me well enough, thinks that it is hilarious, and are convinced that I was a guitar in a previous life.

    I'll sing guitar riffs, solos... You name it, if it's played by a guitar, I'll be singing along to it.

    My favourite to sing ? The intro to Meanstreet. I just love doing a screechy thing to try to mimic the feedback sound.

    Now, am I just weird, or is this something you guys do as well, being guitarists yourselves ???

    Just wondering... [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    It's strange you should say that cause I learn stuff by singing little passages in my head. If I like it, I play them over and over till they sound like what I heard in my head.
    Not too insane huh?

    Crap, maybe I am insane. I thought I would be in good company on this board (you're all crazy mf's ! Ha ha ha ! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] ) but it seems as though I was wrong. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    But no, I meant listening to a song on the radio or tape or CD that you know. I always sing the guitar part away. Annoys the hell out of the Missus.

    But I'm not good enough to execute the stuff I hear in my head, it never even sounds close. But then again, my hearing is messed up so maybe I hear it wrong in the first place, I dunno ! [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    As for other people's stuff, I can hum/sing it, but nah, can't really play it !

    There's no hope for me is there ?

    Now excuse me while I go and eat some worms...

    yes, you are insane, but that´s good, every guitar-player must be insane

    BTW: did you ever try to hum the "beat it" solo?

    Dude!...you make a great guitar, Peavey should release you!
    Just don't expect me to touch your leads after you've plugged yourself in!
    You give new definition to the term 'Wang bar' and I'll never be interested in your volume knob!

    On original songs I usually hum the melody of the solo and then match it with the guitar. Saves me a ton of time and in the studio, time is $$$.

    Also when I was in my band, the other guitarist and I would work out our two guitar-harmony that way. It's just faster and takes the guess work out of it.

    Plus it's good vocal practice.

    Not all that wierd at all.
