Seriously, I'm so sick of going on Youtube or UG and seeing ****ty guitar covers and what not and then somebody giving an excuse like "oh I'm sorry it sucks but i just did a really quick cover and there's a **** load of mistakes but i was to ****ing lazy to fix it because i seek instant gratification so please tell me i have potential and if i fix my mistakes which i probably never will because i was to lazy in the first place so ill just learn bad habbits, never learn a full song, just a bunch of half-assed riffs". Just look in the recording forum its full of excuses. And I'm not just talking about guitar covers look at all the ****ing spam effortless excuses of videos on youtube.

Just because any douche bag can get a hold of a computer mic now days or webcam and record some bull**** that they looked up the tab spent two minutes practicing and just through down in one take and posted mistakes and all.

And games like rock band, don't get me wrong, i love singing with it when im drunk, but as long as you have the pitch correct it doesn't matter if you sound better than the original artist or kermit the frog with a cold either way "You Rock".

Theres hundreds of examples mediocrity all over society today, I mean if your going to post something on the internet take two seconds to check your grammer, and put some ****ing effort into whatever it is you do.

I guess all I'm trying to say here is TAKE SOME ****ING PRIDE IN WHAT YOU DO.

So let me know if you agree, offer another example, or tell me I'm the biggest idiot you've ever met.

You might find this difficult to believe but at some point people have had to picked up a guitar and learned how to play it. Due to poor self-esteem they might not want to admit they really are terrible at it.

Interestingly it takes even less effort to go look up how to properly spell "douchebag". And see how that worked out for you.

Agreed with Jericho. If you are going to bash others for not taking the time to use correct grammar, you should try using it yourself. Thank you for using "Theres" when "There are" would have been appropriate, and for spelling grammar with an 'e.' You also spelled "habits" wrong, and used "to" when you should have used "too." I sincerely hope your post was a joke.

Edit: Here is a quick, crappy version of a song I recorded with an acoustic and a webcam. Please check it out. I know it is sloppy and has some mistakes, but I still enjoy doing it and hearing what other people think about it. Just know that if I really wanted to, I could make it perfect.

No one has to be perfect at everything, if it bothers you then walk away because you won't like everything you see.

A perfect example, rather than offering an argument or something constructive you just typed some random thoughtless ****. Seriously comments such as yours contribute nothing so what was the point, probably similiar to talking for the purpose of hearing your own voice.

It frustrates me, but if they want to get a guitar to be cool and not realize that learning to play guitar is learning to play an instrument, then they can suck. One less crappy guitarist once they feel it's too hard.

What about doing it for personal satisfaction and betterment? or maybe for the purpose of making good music that people want to hear rather than help stroke your ego.

Maybe if you took an attitude like that someday you wouldn't be playing for free.
