Re: The ultimate question: Long Hair or Short?!

I posed this question to a guitar teacher I once had...

he said:

short hair is not rock n roll

you will lose your ability to do runs if you cut your hair

your creativity stays on the barber's floor, along with your long hair

people with short hair can't play their axe as well as they could (see EVH)

go figure....

Re: The ultimate question: Long Hair or Short?!

well on your teachers theory, petrucci cut his hair before train of thought and that and octavarium are DTs worst albums (just my opinion of course), they sounded very half assed and uninspired to me. Hes growing his hair again now so their next one should be awesome

Re: The ultimate question: Long Hair or Short?!

He said that guitarists who had long hair and then cut it went through a crisis of their sexuality...this doesn't explain the 80s make-up question so often discussed in psycology circles....

The question should read:

The ultimate question: Long Hair or Short Has anybody else lost sleep over this...?

I could have grown it long during the holidays, since my hair has a fast rate of growing. Even after I leave school I'd still keep it short.

Re: The ultimate question: Long Hair or Short?!

...long or short, who cares. that guitar teacher is an idiot and in need of counseling. i think what he forgot to tell you is that he likes to dress in women's clothing as well on the weekends when home alone. this guy is vain, and, pretty much a poser from what i hear. tell that to paul gilbert as one example. i used to have really long hair, loved it, took care of it and cut it very short, hated it, grew it back even longer than first time. cut it again; it's been short now for 4 years; got the spike thing goin' on. from everyone i talked to, they like it shorter. as far as "pretty boys" go, well, i can see that thought but there is also the poser side of the fence with long hair. don't forget that. Anyone who thinks the ability and creativity is in their hair is simply an idiot.
