Now I know I'm not the only person who just shakes their head whenever they see Lil Wayne try to play guitar but I've seen some clips that just made me want to shoot myself.

Video 1

Video 2


And the thing that I hate is that everyone tries tot hype him up like he can really play guitar. I know I'm not the greatest guitar player but I've been playing only a year and I'm better than him. All outta tune and ish. smh Sorry rant over. /rant

Does this really affect you? Honestly? I'm tired of people here ragging on artists you don't like with the argument that they have no talent. It gets kinda tedious.

At least he's trying to learn how to play. At least respect that.
I'm pretty sure everyone was that bad at some point.

This.

Who cares, it'll probabl make more people want to pick up the guitar, which is surely a good thing, unless you're an elitist who thinks only the select few should play.

I see it as more of a publicity act than actually trying to learn.

But I don't really care. I hadn't even heard of Lil' Wayne until my sister started talking about him constantly. He's a mediocre rapper with sub par guitar playing abilities. Who cares?

lol i'm not an elitist at all only been playing a whole year. but someone said he's been playing for 2 years or 3 years now. and i think he should be better than that. yeah he's probably making others play guitar but the way he plays it makes me squirm, idk. i just think he should stick to rapping that's all.

He wants to widen his musical repertoire, which is probably more than can be said for many guitarists. He should whatever he damn well wants

Lil' Wayne's Guitar playing is already a known UG joke. He sucks balls, especially in My Leather So Soft.

I would agree with you, were it not for the fact that he sucks even worse than me after my first lesson, yet still insists on recording his stuff and playing it live.

My question still stands. Does this affect you in any way? Why does it bother you? Seems like plain and simple jealousy.

Thanks, but I was only joking. I really couldn't care less if people think Hendrix is a guitar god, or if Lil Wayne is the greatest thing to happen to hip hop. I'll just listen to what I like and have a good time.

I love the "high and mighty" attitudes everyone assumes whenever a negative comment is made towards rap or rappers.

Well these threads gets kinda repetitive in The Pit about people having an opinion on what other artists should do and can't do.

I'm more interested in the fact that I've seen him playing an Emily the Strange Epiphone.

I don't see what the big deal is.

He likes music enough to pick up guitar. Does anyone actually care that he is learning to play?

Granted, but just as repetitive is the guaranteed response by someone. No one can mention that they don't like rap without someone coming in and complaining about open mindedness and apathy.

we listen to lil wayne over here in college as a joke. his lyrics are so retarded they're funny.

but i've said it before, if he wants to branch out, then let him, i'll give him credit for trying.

I think it's awesome, Lil Wayne's crazy so it makes sense that he has some wacked out way of playing guitar and making music to go along with it.
