I'm usually not someone who criticizes other people's music, but I came across this video on YouTube and.... Just watch.

This is a joke, right? I mean, seriously.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49RLDbW70j0

From his YouTube - "I am Rick Washbrook. Ive been playing music for 40 years and teaching for 28 years."

If he's a guitar teacher, I don't think I want to hear any of his students.

I just watched some of his other videos.... I think he IS serious. At least he takes himself seriously.

One time at school (I was maybe 15/16), we had an assembly and there was this talk given by some middle aged guy
can't remember what he was talking about, but afterwards in the PE changing room people were talking about/laughing at the guy, calling him weird etc
and then one of the guys in my class said it was his dad
silence
you could see the resemblance, though

He wasn't too bad. If you listen to a lot of older guys play blues, youl notice none of them really know how to fluently shred. This guy wasnt bad. Was it amazing? No. Was it bad? No, it was better than what 75% of the pit can do.

No, it's bad. Just because it could be worse doesn't mean it isn't bad.

No, she's called Rick. Learn to read, you freakin' ignoramus. It's right there in the video title.

That's the thing though.... It wasn't just that video. His other ones are just as bad.

And the fact that he claims to have been "playing for 40 years and teaching for 28"

I was trying to find a way to make his name equal 150.


I failed.

The first d (d1) = 12
The second d (d2 or d^2)=144

Added together you get 156

Since d1=12, a=6 (c=10, b=8)

So (d1+d^2)-a=150

Thus dad=150

Simple really...

I think the video shown by OP would be a bit better if he sorted his tone out. It sounded terrible.
But also it kind of sounds like the "shredding" of some 12 year old who has just hit puberty and has only been playing guitar for about a month.

EDIT:

GOOD F*CKING GOD HIS FACE
I have nothing important to say
#38
His playing is very unfocused...

It's technical, but it barely even establishes a key. And that makes it bad.
