Okay.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dq4Hj2_5EeI&feature=related

Read the description.

Like seriously, why the freaking hell do people upload videos of them playing when they've been playing for ONE DAMN WEEK?

I don't understand it.
I can understand recording yourself and watching it back but why would you upload it to youtube when you're so terrible and have such little experience?

love the song choice...

feel free to enjoy this beautiful video
=)

Discuss:
This kid.
Kids who upload terrible covers of themself when they've been playing for like a week or a month or something.

feel free to raid his video and flame him

Warnable.

Besides, why would you do that?

To discourage him from playing at all?

Don't be an asshole.

The answer is pretty much simple.

Kids who needs more attention. That's all.

"and also i have two "tone" knobs on my guitar?!
what are they for and what should i set them to?"

I lol'd.

Not because "OMG NUUB", but because he can't seem to figure out that the "tone" nobs are for setting the tone of the guitar by himself.

And that was really the only funny part of the video, and it wasn't even in the video. The video itself was just some guy who was excited because he learned Iron Man.

isn't there a thread for this?


It's not so much on the actual video but the point that people upload stuff this bad.. and wondering why.

So no =)

He doesn't know. So?

Did you dumbasses know what to do the moment you stepped in a car? Probably not, and based off the average user, some of you probably STILL can't drive. How would you feel if your parents just made fun of you for not knowing what to do?

He's a newbie and doesn't know. Lay off, idiots.

They upload them for the same reason everybody else uploads videos.

Good for him.
He's been playing a week and is confident enough to demonstrate his ability thusfar and ask other people for help.

Don't be nasty. Everyone was a beginner once.

I love the tiny string slide (can't remember the term) he does right at the end. I bet he feels UBAR-MEHTULZ!!!

You're missing the point entirely. The point is I wouldn't RECORD myself driving for the first time and then upload it for the world to see.
#21
Where do I start?
The playing itself marvels that of such virtuosos as Steve Vai and John Petrucci. The tone is somewhere between the perfection of David Gilmour and Brian May with a touch of Jesus thrown in, and your stage presence is like Nickelback and Greenday combined. Nice job dude, +subscribed

Maybe he felt proud? Is that so wrong?

I lol'd. Gotta love his lil' wanna-be rockstar move at the end. But seriously guys, he's just some kid who's excited about learning stuff on his guitar. The fact that'd he's learning to play guitar is already a 1up on all the other kids of the world... like... the skaters... and... WoW nerds... *shudder*

Is that statement directed toward everyone or just the people being assholes?


The people being assholes. But honestly, a person has just picked up a guitar, wanting to try something new. He must have practice his ass off to learn what he's playing, and having finally learnt that first riff, it must feel fantastic. He wants to share it with his friends. What the **** is wrong with that?
#37
why does anybody do anything? you know what, **** guitar playing. guitar players are so useless, wasting all this time uploading stuff on youtube and trying to learn. people should be INSTANTLY good right away, and if they're not they should give up, amirite?

To be fair, the kid is probably just psyched that he's learning guitar.


And that's a great thing.

The reason a lot of you had't posted videos of yourself after a week of playing was most likely because youtube was either non-existant, or still rather new at that time. And as "fellow" guitarists, you should be encouraging him to continue, and teach him, instead of being dicks. It really says a lot about you if you knock a kid, or anyone, who's just learning. As far as I'm concerned, that makes you the idiot. All he did was put a video on youtube. Crime? Not really.

Too true. But you see, there are people who have nothing better to do than troll new guitar players.

Eh, whatever. The video was amusing, I must admit.

What always amazes me is that people who upload those vids don't understand the concept of editing. I don't want to sit through someone fiddling around with the camera for ages. It's not that bad of a problem, just something I find annoying.
