Well Mr. Badname of Band with a Horrible Name, if you're so much better than him why don't you just pick up the guitar? Or kick him out? If he's as bad as you say he is than he doesn't seem that valuable to you or your band.

No, arrogant is the right word. He just used it in a bad place in the paragraph.


Edit: Also, tomes? Like....books?

*tones* that is my bad, all he does if crank the mids and gain and he just plays meaningless crap that sounds horrible and i try to help him and show him that music is more than just playing random notes and singing. then after i try that he just pouts, and we need him so there will be no kicking out of anyone, and im not the best at talking so i am wanting help with making him understand and listen to me.

To start with I think you need help finding the correct forum.

If he's that bad, but you need him there, then why are you bothering asking UG to help you. Just carry on as you have been, he's not likely to change and your band is not likely to progress.

So tell us; Why do you need him there?

what forum does this belong in then?

Is there any possible response to this thread that could make him change his mind about taking guitar seriously, even slightly? Not that i can see.

Try teaching him a bit yourself, if you're better then that shouldn't be hard to do. Maybe if you record something you could lay down his parts - that usually gives people a kick up the backside in terms of noticing they're not as good as they should be.

Any chance you can show us a clip of him playing against you/the rest of the band?
