    Yeah, first thing he said was "How many damn strings does that thing have?" After the 'groove' comment, we all played a song and when it was over, the other guitarist asked if I had a riff or lick to play around with so I played a funky bluesy thing I had picked around with earlier that day. All the other players on stage start kinda fiddling around trying to figure out a part to play along with me and the drummer piped up and said "Nah, I don't like that, something else, we're not playing that."

    I think he was drunk or something and maybe thought he was being funny but at that point I packed up my guitar and left. Better than sticking around until I got sucked into a fight with him, lol.

    Classic rock people are so tiresome to deal with...if it's not the simplest thing to understand and play immediately, they're gonna get mad about it. It seems like they're the ones who are most afraid of leaving their comfort zone.

    I've found that attitude common with a lot of those "jam guys" at open mics. That's part of the reason I stopped playing them on occasion. Usually it stemms from their being butt-hurt that they've spent 30 years trying to leave the garage only to end up sessioning during an open mic for free drinks.

    Thread related: This is from last night @ 529 in East Atlanta Village. They were kicking off their weekly Metal night there (Wednesdays of Mass Destruction). Horrible pic (IMO). I'm pic-right with my eyes closed LOL

    Dickish attitudes aside, jamming is still its own art form and I've met so many guitar players, especially metal players, who absolutely suck at it :lol: There's a reason you want something simple to build on that everyone can immediately understand because that comfort zone is what keeps the jam from sounding like a bad rehearsal. Jam sessions are meant to NOT require rehearsals, that's the whole point. The audience don't want to watch you spend 20 minutes, or even 2 minutes, learning parts for the next song.
