A Conversation for How to Buy a Guitar

Smoke on the Water

Post 1


Nice entry!

Is it true that this song is, as the urban myth goes, blacklisted by every reputable dealer in guitars, and that any customer daring to play it in the shop will be threatened with (for instance) having their fingers broken?

Do any other songs attract the opprobium of musical instrument dealers, eg "Stairway to Heaven"? What would the Anti=Top Ten look like from the ponit of view of music retailers?

And I would think dealers in keyboards aren't altogether thrilled by people wanting to try out the kit with the Doors' "Riders on the Storm" or Deep Purple's "Child in Time", either)
