Get that a bit, but then I just grab the darkest secret I know that person has and expose it. It helps to be the local shrink.

I think it is just as pathetic to challenge someone to a "guitar battle"

I have a freind who can't play literally. He's been playing at least a year longer than me and he picks the strings like a 7yr old does, virtually hits them. And, he told me I should get better at tapping And then, he said the easiest thing he can play is Sanitarium. He struggled with the intro.

But you get these people who are like "OMFGORZ I CAN SHRD THIS RIFFAND I PWN IT INTO THE GROUND!!!!!!!!1111111oneoneoenoeneoneoneeleven". And so what?They might be able to shred but it's all about what you want to play, if you can put all your soul and emotion into a few notes, then you've just beat there face to the ground in about 3 seconds.
It's never personally happend to me (and hopefully won't), but everyone is good in their own right, whether it be the ability to pcik up and play tabs quickly or have long fingers or whatever. There's just some people with huge egos who like to make everyone else feel bad to boost their own morale.

I like it when people pick up a guitar, and you hear "hold on a second" or "wait" about five times as they **** up consecutively.

Who cares? IF you know you are better, then why do you care what they have to say? Does it embarrass you? Then suck it up.

Then the kid isn't a real guitarist.

See I realized something, unless your starting to learn how to play a fret on the guitar, you are good at the guitar, it's just there are people out there who have been playing longer then you and since they have more experience they are better then you.

Usually my friends (that are guitarists) call me bad because I'm better than them. Everyone else who says that either hates me or doesn't like rock.

A few months after I started playing 2 of my friends came to pick me up, they came in to see how im doing with my guitar. I played the intro to "stay together for the kids" and the first solo in metallicas "fade to black" damn good. They were like you suck and made fun of me later on. I can still remember them saying that, did not do good for my confidence at all. Same with my dad, about a month into playing guitar he kept telling me I suck (he used to play), the outcome of that is, now, 4 years later(after dropping and picking up guitar) I still cant play when he is in the house.

Now when I bought my guitar a few friends came over with thiers and they showed me the basics, I sucked so bad I couldn't reach 2-4 but they never said a word. Even a few months after I started playing they still taught me stuff and pushed me to be as good as they were.

I guess what Im trying to say is that unless they play guitar and know their stuff don't listen to them. You will get crap when you play but you have to put that behind you.

Someone is ALWAYS going to be better than you.

The only thing I don't like is when people think you're bad because you don't know a lot of the songs that they listen to. I mean, I know a decent bit of songs, but it's not as if I spend every night looking at tabs for every piece of music I listen to. I just think there's a Hell of a lot more to Guitar than playing what someone else created.
