Andrew Baena has been playing extended-range guitars for nearly 10 years, and during that time he’s received his share of remarks about his instrument of choice.

So he decided to put together a video counting down the top five annoying comments players of seven-, eight- and nine-string guitars receive.

“I hear these comments almost daily,” Baena says. “I’m sure anyone else who plays a seven-, eight- or nine-string guitar can relate.”
