I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

@Tim I suppose there are some reasons to be very loud on stage -- some guitar amps only produce the desired tone at high volume (ZZ Top put an amp in a soundproof box, with a mic). If you're trying to produce guitar feedback, you need loudness.
