Hey, looking for non biased opinions on whether or not my bands bassist and his other bands drummers are actually d*cks or not.

He joined another band a few months ago with his cousin and lately everything he says seems to sound like "hey, this is what my other band does" and it's pretty much, well, pi**ing the rest of us off.

Aside from that he is allways saying how the guitarist in that band is even better than me and more or less god like.
I am a good guitarist I am big headed enough to say that, I would also admit that somebody is better than me but I can't here, not with arguments like
1) He can tremalo pick (Bassist then remembers I can but sticks with his argument anyway)
2) He he uses the hungarian minor chord alot (Chord, not scale, I know it dosn't exist)
3) He uses a 7-string guitar (which is apparently 100x cooler and harder to play than a 6 string)
4) The above points = technical and as said, God like.

And their bands drummer, constantly having digs at us that we are shit because we are not heavy or metal enough, going on about how their guitarist is better (for the same reasons) saying our drummer is shit because he doesn't use blast beats (He thinks they are boring and gay) or constant double bass (he thinks it is boring) vocalist is shit (total opposite)

Really, I just need an unbiased opinion from people who aren't in the band that will obviously agree with me to say if
- these points are indeed a path to awesomeness
- They are genuanliy just being douches

All I can think is we don't play the genre they want, or that we are in some sort of wierd compatition with them and just don't know it. Or they are just metalhead elitist...Or they are right, you are crap without blastbeats and 7-strings.

Ps. I expect some people are going to troll. I accept that. I am ready for it. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I would need to hear both bands in order to give a full opinion on who is better and for what reasons.

However judging from the way theyre acting, your bassist sounds like a douche, and if the guitarist in the other band is better, then make him prove it. Prove to you and the rest of them that he is better than you.

And yeah they all just sound like douchebags. Plain and simple.

Don't sound like dicks to me... Maybe his guitarist is better than you what the hell does that matter as long as you guys are having fun playing. Kick the stupid shit head out I doubt you guys are about to be signed or have any huge shows lined up. Stop being butt hurt by some dude who likes his other band more and move on.
#22
I would recommend posting something by both bands. That, or at least post what techniques YOU can do. Also, did he specifically say tremolo picking, or did he say alternate picking? Because maybe he meant he's good at shredding.
#23
All I can say, is that if "using hungarian minor scale" means to them playing it up and down in the speed of light, then yes, they suck and you should punch them all in the face.

He said Hungarian minor chord. Whatever the heck that is
#25
You can't be better than him, he can tremolo pick AND use the Hungarian minor scale.

That's it, game over man...the other guy is obviously GOD.
#26
There is a hungarian minor scale, but I've never heard of a hungarian minor chord and google doesn't give me any results, so I assumed TS made a little mistake

I didn't post any links because I am not asking which band is better, I am asking are these guys being as much of douches as I think they are?

Yes I can tremolo pick -.- It's an actual argument by them, granted not a very good one.

Nope, it's an actual thing they keep talking about. From what i've been shown it's apparently pretty much a power chord with an extra note :/

Never botherd looking whether it was real or not, just assumed it was a chord I never heard of, nice to know this chord dosn't even exist xD

You don't sound very competent at what you do. You're both dicks. He's a dick for not being modest, and you're a dick for not just realizing you need to get better at what you do.

Technical ability doesn't matter for shit. You should be judged on how good your songs are, nor how technical they are.

In other words, yes, he's a douche.

So what you're saying is it's a power chord with another note to determine it as minor? Holy crap I am pretty well versed in Hungarian minor chords then.

But yeah it doesn't exist by anything I've ever heard unless you make your own chords and call them hungarian minor which would involve a sharp 4 instead of a 5 which is basically a flat 5 with a minor third which would make it a diminished triad pretty much... easy way of interpreting this those guys are complete idiots. But for real don't worry about it kick the guy out get a new bassist.
