Some people asked me to do a post on this one :)

Here's a populat highschool myth: If you play guitar, chicks will digg you.
... this can be true in most cases =)
It can bring you some unwated attention tho ;)

Here's a common problem. You're unpopular. Wich is totally fine. Some people say that, in order to be successful in life, you need to be unpopular in highschool... And I tend to agree. How does that work... well.

If you are popular, you tend to stick to some rules. Don't do this and don't to that in order not to appear "uncool". Slash said that in highschool, he was viewed as the "always new and weird kid"
He was considered uncool because he sticked with what he believed in. He didn't switch clothing styles, he didnt change his way of thinking, of acting, of talking. He did what he felt what's right.

So what am i saying basically:

1) Stick to what YOU believe is true
2) Never follow trends / fads
3) Never humiliate yourself in order to please the popular students (NEVER)
4) Never listen to what other people think about you. They might say you are weird, that they can't understand why you dress a certain way, or act a certain way. If they don't like who you are, it's their problem.
5) Never start playing guitar for a girl

Related to point 5 , never start paying guitar for a girl. Beacuse this can go multiple ways. You could get the girl, then you'll stop playing guitar, because you got her. You could not get her, and you could stop playing guitar because you get frustrated. Either way, it goes bad.

Play guitar because you like the sound of it,because you love the magic. Girls are just a bonus.

6) Never show off

If someone sais "dude, you can't play guitar" don't try to prove him wrong. He could play guitar better than you. Even if he has no idea how to play guitar, you still get off as the guy who got played easily.

7) If you want a social circle, go out with people that share the same interests. They can be popular, unpopular, who cares. All it matters is that you have a great time!

That should be about it. If you have questions, any ideas, or anything, just leave a comment and I'll make a new post, just for you :)
