I used to get compliments on my playing and music but few people actually about my guitar sound.
Non-guitarists are way more easily impressed....play the intro to Thunderstruck and most people go " wow" even though its very easy..
I get compliments on how good my wife looks and plays (she's the bass player in the band)
Still waiting for the other compliments
Oh wait, I get compliments from my wife!!! haha.
