Default My Precious Guitar... Raped

Are you afraid when somebody who doesn't know how to play guitar, wants to play your guitar badly, and he just does something weird with it that looks harmful, or he tries this 'slap' he's seen bass players doing, and just seems like he's f'ing with your strings???
Or something similar...

A friend of mine did everything above and I was just about to say, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! STOP!!!!!!

Tell us your thoughts.

http://www.musicbanter.com/talk-inst...my-guitar.html

the issue is pretty much covered from every angle in this thread.

just from your choice of words i'd say you're overreacting. it LOOKS harmful, or SEEMS like the strings are being effed. yet nothing is actually harmed or screwed up, because if it was it would / should have been addressed at the moment.

if they're trying to slap and a string pops then it pretty much needs to be addressed at the moment, otherwise the ONLY bad thing that would result from slapping is going out of tune (unless they have a big spiky bracelet and its being slammed into the body as well)

TL/DR version:
relax, it's a guitar it's made to be rocked out on.

It's like when my girlfriend wants to learn how to play and I see her grabbing the strings between her fingers and pulling them hard. I'm like "hehehhh see here, sweetie .. strum softly - like this". "Okay - BWANG! BWRANG!"

I know how you feel.

Yeah, it gets me really angsty when people f around with my guitar when they clearly don't know how to play. One, because I don't want it to get damaged, and two, because I love my guitar very much and I hate hearing it sound like it is being raped.

I used to have this little classical guitar, nothing fancy, but I really enjoyed playing it. One of my sisters friends come over to hang out with them one day and I let him play my guitar for a bit (i watched him carefully) and then made him put it down when i had to leave. When I came back he came running up proudly holding the guitar and said "dude I pimped your guitar! its so cool now!" he put stickers all over the body! 0.0 i still cant get one of them off all the way I was beyond pissed.

The strap on my bass guitar carrier gave out so I dropped it by accident. Now I have I small crack and dent on the bottom on it. Not noticeable, but still sad. I don't plan on reselling but still...

You could just tell people to leave your guitar alone or get the **** out of your house. It seems to work for my husband.

I wonder why no one wants to come by anymore???
