I'm with TaronKeim on this one. While i wasn't too impressed with his playing, i decided to hold my tongue. Not sure how you guys are getting this egomaniac stuff from. Maybe the photos, or a few poorly chosen words in the ad, but aside from that he just seems like someone who is eager to play with others. As for playing tips for this fellow, i'd just say put in some more time and practice. I was never a 20hr a day practice fiend myself, but getting out there and jamming with people could very well be what the doctor ordered. Say, that's just what he was trying to do . I will give the old on his paragraph response above. Surely a period or two wouldn't have hurt.
