    this is fucking painful.
    Why does this kid have a Marcus Miller bass? I genuinely feel bad for this kids. I knew people like him all throughout high school and college.

    There ya' go :yesway:

    EDIT: Why the fuck does he have to yell instead of speaking like a normal person would?! And yeah, that's right, every fucking body that's endorsed by Ibanez plays a 7-string. Also, I love how he goes "gives a low... BALLSY, chunky..." :lol:

    Well yea, actually if you look at his newer videos, you can totally see improvement. But gosh, no-one puts a video of oneself playing if you fail that hard. That's just plain stupid: You won't get any criticism + you sure wont get, but a bad reputation.

    This thread has reminded me that I truely would never want to re-live my life, all that suck...so much suck...more suck ahead.

    This thread has really pointed out something else that I've been concentrating on for the last few years, becoming comfortable and articulate with all of my facilities on the guitar. Yea Gates can sweep pick but it's border-line dogshit because he's just arpeggiating chords, not sweep picking. There are no shortcuts.

    That virtuoso guy :barf: That's why I really don't like delays unless it's integral to a riff in a song or used to harmonize with oneself but even then no more than one delayed note. Ugh..... And to be honest, that's not a whole lot different than what I think Malmsteen sounds like.

    Nathan had me laughing my fucking ass off :rofl: "So, here's how to play___. Well, I couldn't figure out that part, but it goes doo doo dee dah. Yeah."

    My first instinct is to say:

    Let's sign these guys up for the organ donor programme, there are more deserving people out there....

    However, my overriding instinct is : WE MUST HELP THEM!!!

    Take away the instruments and cameras!!!

    No I got it wrong again. if any one can figure out what to do with these people, put it up here for the sake of all that is toneful...

    Following them round with a big jar of ear plugs might work, for the innocence of bystanders who may accidentally hear these people.

    At one point I thought about going to shows and handing out business cards with "Music Teacher" to the noobs, but decided they might be more than offended ...

    Here is something better, depending on your point of view:

    Is it just me or does he sound cleaner when he's not playing? The delay sounds better than he does.

    ^+1 :lol: I feel so much better about my playing after watching these. The tech death bass guys was hilarious. Even moreso because I'm a bassist. I've had bassists from local metal bands consider lessons from me. It's awesome. And weird. I'm not THAT good but, you've loads of "hardcore" bands around here. It's annoying.

    Usually playing the guitar is all about harmonizing your left and right hands. This guys broke the rule for sure XD Even when he's saying "slowly" his left hand is ages b4 his picking hand XD XD XD:hbang::lol::lol::lol:
