A friend of mine who plays guitar (like me) wants to start a band but he's like worse me...quite worse not to be a pompous idiot or anything. Okay I know it probably sounds like a waste of time already but I remember I didn't really get good at guitar till I started jamming with my friend who is a pretty good guitarist and I got better ALOT faster and now I jam with him all the time. Okay enough ranting...what do you think?

I'm in a situation like this myself. A friend of mine who is convinced that he is good at guitar but basically just knows a few chords and how to read tabs wants to start a band with me. I mean I think I suck, and he's probably only half as good as me, and he's been playing 3 times longer. I just don't foresee much potential or progress...

well unless you can play songs.
e.g. lets play master of puppets, u be guitar II i be guitar I.
if u can individually do it then its fine and u'll get better
but if one of u continually drags down, then nows not the time.

p.s dont do master of puppets do like strokes or something

I dunno, he's gotta be willing to give 110% and I don't know if he will

well, sit him down and tell him that you need 110 percent and ask him if he's willing to give that, and remember Rome Wasn;t built in a day, this will take time

Playing in a band is the best practice you can get. If you play with him and a drummer he'll improve much faster and some of your skills might rub off on him. I say go for it and if it doesn't work after a couple months just forget it.

Jam, and don't care if it goes anywhere or not. Just do it cause it's fun, and he's your mate.

+1, jamming really does help improve skill.
