Hey there. I’d like to kindly welcome you to the Tone Taxi. This happens to be our fourth episode. Today we’re on Story Mill Road. We’re heading out past town a little bit. It’s pretty hilly. It’s nice. I’ve actually never been on this road. Today I want to talk about one of the most crucial things you need to know and need to have in your back pocket when you’re buying a guitar. That’s negotiation skills.
The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine
Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!
I’m not talking about negotiating with who’s selling the guitar. I’m talking about negotiating with your significant other, your spouse, your friend, that person that says, “Hey, I don’t think you need another guitar,” to which you would reply, “Yes, I do need that other guitar, and here’s the reason why.” Those are the negotiating skills that I’m talking about.
Now, some people say, “Hey, I just sneak it in. It’s a black case. I just put it right next to the other black cases and nobody ever knows.” That’s a great tactic. We call that the ninja tactic. There’s other people that say, “I know this guitar looks the same as the other one but it sounds totally different.” That’s the “Hey, I know guitars more than you so I’m going to use that tactic.”
I’ve used a lot of these tactics before, but I want to hear your tactic. I want you to tell us which tactics you use, maybe which tactics you have used in the past, and of course, stories of the tactics, successes, or failures. Thanks a lot for jumping in the Tone Taxi with me. I’ll see you on the next episode!
