Note notch at the back of the heel.
I didn't vote as the option "Yes, unless the safely of the floor depends on it" wasn't listed.
(Ya'll know which model guitar I'm referring to here)
Do you throw pens in the office? Tools on the job site? To me it's uncouth, always.
No smashing here. My thinking is that if you want to destroy a functional instrument, you should find another player who needs a decent guitar.
"Uncouth" is an overly kind way of putting it. And I hate waste.
Once its been done every time afterwards is just a copycat. Pass. Maybe dropping the drummer or a keyboard player would be something new.
What about whacking it against the amp first?
Pagey just grins as he knows he could decimate the entire stage and reduce to mere splinters should he wish to…
When I work myself into a frenzy on stage and arrive at a state where my artistic expression directs me to trash a perfectly good guitar, I take a deep breath and find a deserving kid who would love to play but doesn't have an instrument. YMMV.
Sometimes, yes. But to your point, it's not something that should be done or seen often, or ever. I just happen to like it on occasion.
Wouldn't have bought strap locks if I intended on spiking my guitar.
I saw The Who play way back in '69. At the time, Pete Townshend had made a name for himself by trashing his guitar (smashing it to bits, in fact) at the finale song, "My Generation." The thought appalled me.
Then I was at the concert and noticed that just before the last song, Townshend carefully placed his concert axe (I was too far to discern the make or model) -- the one he'd been using the entire concert -- carefully into a guitar stand, and picked up an "el cheapo" that he plugged in, played once, and then turned into toothpicks.
It kind of ruined my whole image as The Who being a reckless, careless group of carefree bad boys.
But it was an awesome concert!
(By the way, the opening act was by a relatively unknown -- and pitiful compared to The Who -- band called "Led Zeppelin"...)
I throw it up, then it comes down
Works with tequila, why not guitars?
...many times, the timing is reversed. goes down easy, comes back up.
Wishbone Ash say it's only ok to Throw Down The Sword.
I agree. It's primal, and at this late date, it's also unoriginal.
I guess the song would be lame, except we're talking about Joh Hiatt here. Hiatt is the ultimate badass.
