So my step-brother who cough, cough, "plays" drums came up to me and asked me if i wrote anything new on guitar. I said yeah i've got this new song I'm working on and he says he wants to here it.
so i start playing and the first thing he says is "uh that sounds like californication"

i say "listen dumb ****, the only thing this and californication have in common is they both are in a minor"

he just stares at me like i just spouted off some giberish and then walks off.


I guess what i'm getting to is does anyone else have the problem of someone who has no idea what they're talking about trying to give you their two cents about guitar playing?"

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

I think he ment it to be constructive. My band's drummer suggests stuff. You have to consider their ideas because they could really have a good one sometime. If their two cents sucks just tell them "I don't agree."

Stock Gibson Pickups from a 2005 V, I think they're a 498T and 500T set FS/FT
Duncan Distortion (regular spaced) FS

Looking for: an acoustic, recording gear, or $

You shouldn't take that so personally. If you really have a problem with it though, at least try and avoid blowing up at him, because that just makes you look like an insecure ass.

he always says stuff like that
i could play stuff out of tune and just hold the tremolo bar down the whole time and he would say he heard it already in a different song

EDIT: FFFDFEFRFKFFF and you can't really call him a drummer. he started 3 months ago and only has practiced for about a total of 2 hours

EDIT2: chris_122 just play some zeppelin for your dad and ask him if its crap
