Hi

I was just trying to explain to a friend of mine who plays piano what 'noodling' is. You know, when you just sit/stand there and play whatever comes into your head/hands and don't think about it at all. So, my question is, what strange terms are there that us strange guitarists have come up with that no one else in music understands? All I can think of at the moment is 'noodle' and 'widdley'

I liked the way Paul Gilbert compared the sounds of pick ups by saying one has more "Aaaaw" than another. I don't think non guitar players would have a clue what he's talking about.

I personally think the more "Aaaaw & Honk" the better. :wink:
