OK, so i know the pit has quite a few "what should i do?" threads, but i think you guys will appreciate this one.

so, not too long ago, my high school had our annual multi-cultural assembly, where we perform talents from our heritages and cultures. it was all goin well, with some cool performers, when this freshman (who's actual name is Steele) comes on stage with a shiny new gibson les paul and a line 6 half-stack. i didn't expect much, but i got much less. he called his act "the history of rock", and started of playing the intro to thunderstruck (not well, many mistakes and inconsistent tempo), and then plays the intro to crazy train (again, badly), and played other over-played intros, and the crowd went wild. my friend and i were a bit pissed off at this guy for a) having expensive gear and being an inexperienced player, b) thinking he was good enough to perform for 1000 people, and c) playing rock intros at what should have been, as our school puts it "a cultural embrace"

i decided to let it go for a while, but recently, a buddy of mine gave this guy a flier for my giving guitar lessons, and said i "thought he needed them" (i didn't say it, but i thought it), and this guy got pissed off! he came at me like "what the hell", and i tried to get him to chill out, but he wouldn't expressing a need to "settle this". I suggested a guitar battle, which seemed like a fair and legal way of putting him to shame. he's hell-bent on fighting me, which is stupid, cuz i'm 9 inches taller, and much stronger.

you guys think i should fight him? im thinking i should persist for a public guitar battle, but he doesn't want to do this. i'm thinkin this guy is not gonna let me breath if i don't get violent, but i still feel a guitar battle is far more relevant.

Guitar Battle, but then for the hell of it after ask him to fight just so you can punish him more.

That guy sounds mental. He's probably just being a douche for attention cuz he knows he ain't gonna get none as a guitarist.

Was his line6 halfstack a Spider?

Yea, Sublime is a great band. You have an Underoath icon, so I think your opinion doesn't matter.

/ignore that stupid midget, cant be a bitch for something thats a clear fact: that hes just a kid with Way too expensive stuff that sucks. its becoming a stereotype im affraid. (allthough if he really thinks hes so great you could do a live guitar battle at the next school thing and totally shred his ass of with tapping, which is really weak but the audience wont know :P )

first, of all, i wanted to show him respect, and im not the one who gave him a flier. second, its not like i don't perform, im a constant performer, so don't think i don't have the guts to get up on stage.

Guitar battle, i know what you mean, i hate it when people that are inexperienced either have a) have more gear than me, even though i know they never send the other one to drop c or something

b) think theyre better than me cause they can play this and that song, HELLO! i can improvise! eat that.

c) think theyre better than me cause they can 'set up' a guitar even though hes scared ****less to the touch the truss rod.

so yeah theres my rant.

but srsly if you can beat him up easily, thats a sign you dont need to fight. just guitar battle.
SATCH FTW!!!
NSW Group FTW!

There's nothing incredibly interesting here.

kick his ass where it matters. take "clear" nailpolish, and paint the insides of the cable port of his amp., he wont see the polish, nor will he be able to hear his guitar. and if all goes right, you can buy the amp from him at a fraction of what he paid for it. and right there is yous last laugh!
