    This is exactly why I hate social media so much. The easier it becomes for everyone to share their thoughts, opinions, hobbies, etc. with the entire world, the more glaringly obvious it becomes that so few people actually have anything worthwhile to share. Thus you have phenomena like fatty there: he barely knows how to play at all; he has horrendous equipment; he doesn't know how to explain things very well; he doesn't know the right way to play any of these riffs (Paranoid was basically right, although you wouldn't know it from listening, but Iron Man and Enter Sandman were so laughably wrong that I almost want to hear a competent musician write new songs around those riffs); he keeps saying that he "can't find" how to play parts of songs that could easily be found the second you type the title into Google, meaning that he either made no attempt to look, or was too embarrassed to admit that he just wasn't good enough to even fail at playing them; maybe worst of all, all the things he's trying to teach you are songs that are 20+ years old, and any guitarist who's been playing for more than a couple weeks probably already knows how to play. There are hundreds of resources for learning how to play guitar, whether basic technique or those specific songs, taught by people much better than you both at playing and teaching, and who know how to play the riffs correctly. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY MAKE YOU THINK THAT YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO TEACH SOMEONE? WHAT VALUE COULD YOU BRING TO THE DISCUSSION?

    The answer is simple and obvious: Facebook, Youtube and the like are just symptoms of a pandemic narcissism.
