The Pros and Cons of being the best rock/blues guitarist in you town

#1
PROS: You are the best rock guitarist around. Everyone looks up to you. You respect for that. People know you for it.

CONS: You have no idea how good you really are. Everyone in your area is an amatuer to you, so when you get out into the world, you may be discouraged by the loads of talent out there. If you live in a town where the Jonas Brothers and Dragonforce are considered god, and you like AC/DC, GNR, and Aerosmith; so people respect you for your talent, but don't give a crap about hearing you play the real rock. You aren't around anyone who can play like you, so there isn't many ways to learn new things (except for youtube, but it isn't that helpful).


Hmmm, seems like a much large cons list. I wish there was someone better than me in my area. Or two or three. Watdoyathink, pit?

Post videos and audio samples of you playing. Now.


EDIT: I listened to your profile. Your playing is very generic. Sorry, but you must live in a very boring, untalented town.

Cons: Large egos give you butterfingers.
Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Mhmh why would you even say that TS?

If you struggle getting a band together, look in yourself and see what you are giving back to the members.

Am I misunderstanding your question?


EDIT: Not to be an asshole, but I listened to your samples and frankly you're too sloppy to play blues. I don't have any samples but that's because I'm too ****ing busy to actually record some....maybe I should just to prove my point.

Again and I'm really being honest...Just see what you can give back to a band.

Also: I always struggled keeping members together, practicing, etc. For me, a member is much more valuable if he really wants to play and be with a band, than a guy that is a GOD but really gives a damn about taking a band somewhere.

AGAIN:::::::I'm not perfect but this is my point of view.

Dude I really do not think people look up to you. You wanna know why? You are a ****ing ass. You probably think they do and they try to be nice. You may not even be the best, but even if you are stop bragging. People tell you you're good and you let it get to you. You aren't gonna get better if you have that attitude. Damn I wish I had this quote by Jimi that would of went along well. Anyway GTFO.

Cons: I'll be hiding in your closet waiting till you come home so that I can disembowel you, carefully so you stay alive, then hang you from your own intestines.

Ya, you're kinda arrogant.

Well u lie because it says under your name you live in paradise city. And theres some impossibly hot girls in paradise, and i'm guessing they're as good on guitars as I can imagine they are at sexing.

whoa whoa! dudes, I've been told this by like 20 people (not including parents, etc.). I don't consider myself amazing or anything, people tell me this stuff. That bit about being an amatuer to you, that doesn't mean I think everyone sucks, that means that other people compare them to me. sheesh...sorry if i look like an asshole. though being the "rock n roll" guy in my school probably doesn't help me ego.

To the dude telling me to upload a vid...I'm on vacation without a camera. Plan to do so as soon as I get home (tuesday). I really do need feedback on my playing from good players.

I'm willing to bet that there's someone in your town better than you, your an arrogant prick.

And yes, you'll get out in the real world and realize your playing is boring/generic/at best a mediocre skill level.

Guys, he means that everyone THINKS he's awesome, but he says that he's not! He's saying that he doesn't have other guitarists around that hit any milestones past him, so he can't measure his own playing ability.

As far as technique and speed (and classical music), yes there is. As far as blues/rock...not really. I know I sound like a prick, but if you came here, you'd see. there really isn't that much talent in the kids in this place.

To the people saying the songs on my profile suck, I had been playing for about a year or two on "acoustic playing", and the blues thing I did in about five minutes. I was bored.

if by town you mean within your house, yes u are the best guitarist around.

i get wut u mean though, its similar for me (cept i dont claim to be the best after i receive compliments) cuz im blues/rock based then started playing metal, it alows me to filter the petatonics (blues box) in and out of my playing, but it also has a technical sound to it that came from playing metal. most people i know do either one or the other and im constantly combining the two, but thats bout my only challenge when playing with other players.

also: maybe show of ur skills in the guitar battle thread which someone should create.

I do see a lot of people that are better than me. Problem is: they're on the internet, in some othere place. I can't talk to them, learn from the (in person is the best, ya know), etc...

if you want demotivation, go on the internet. if that still ceases to amaze you, then you are apparently god of guitar?

whoa whoa! dudes, I've been told this by like 4 people (including parents, etc.). I consider myself amazing and everything, people tell me this stuff every year or so at Christmas time when my whole family is together and they don't want to be jerks. That bit about being an amatuer to you, I think everyone sucks, tthey don't even compare to my talent. sheesh... i look like an asshole. though being the "rock n roll" guy in my school probably will get me all the chicks.

To the dude telling me to upload a vid...I don't want to laugh at me. Plan to do so as soon as I get home (3 years). I really do need feedback on my playing from far worse players.

Fixed.

Just kidding TS, all in good humor.
