I can't believe the wannabe kids that post their videos entitled "zOmg wAtch m3 pwn I pLay liek super aw3sum zakkk wylldie and s3iZe th3 dAy A7x omg" on youtube, and the video shows yome wannabe dork trying to solo on like a full stack daddy bought for him.

And the worst thing is, these people actually think theyre good because for every video they post, there's another 10 kids that dont know the first thing about playing the guitar who post a comment like "d00d that wuz liek totallY aw3sum!! u rok!"

The other day I saw some kid that actually put 53 videos of himself up playing Breaking Benjamin and Staind, and he just sucked. Technique bad, tabs bad, timing bad. How can that be?! And his gear was killer.

Meh, just had to rant about this.

Interesting. I know a kid like that who plays drums. He's an Idiot. He puts videos on youtube (He's taken them down now) of him playing dream theater songs that he can barely play. He misses beats and doesn't even play the right fills. Pretty lame. But whatever, its no that big of a deal.
#3
Yeah. Its an unfortuante fact of life. Kids that know nothing about music comined with parents that are loaded = Total 'trend' following morons across the Interent.
Thats why we have to rise above them, with worse gear, show them how its done. This should then crush their spirits and then they will sell their stuff to someone who deserves it.
Simple, eh?

I'm also annoyed by the people that do this, however, does that make them posuers?
It just means they're not so good and have a fair bit of learning to go through really.
*shrugs* I don't know...
#5
Let them think they're good, I just try to focus on my own playing and not on other people and what they are doing. There are some problems with the youtube "community" one fo them being people who just flame eachother when really it is not necessary. You can't change those people, complaining won't stop it. But a good thread topic.

People who use the word posers are usually elitist idiots.

I'm pretty sure you're one of those.

This one guy actually tried to move like Ben Burnley (singer from BB) does on stage. He thinks he's like so badass and a total guitar god. THAT, sir, is a poser.

All I'm really wondering about is, what drives these people to put all these videos up on the internet? They even have the CD playing along, how do they not hear that what they play is wrong?

Nope, I never said that I on the other hand actually own so much or anything.

I was just thinking alot about this phenomenon lately. I think I read somewhere here on UG where somebody said in the US its like a trend to play the guitar now, so alot of kids just pick it up to be "cool"-

ok then try and find a band called Sometime Next Tuesday

that will make you feel much better laughing at them

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

So it's a trend... it will fade away.

Ohhh fair enough, I just see quite a lot of people bashing their guitar playing, when we all had to start out somewhere.

Right, but did you post lots of videos of yourself "starting out" on youtube, or would you if it had existed whenever you started playing?

Let them do what they want, dont be jealous because you cant move like Ben Burnley!


Speak for yourself

Apparently, you're one of those elitist jerks though

That was harsh and uncalled for
How does not liking the sound of the Marshall MG series make me an elitist?

Hmm, I guess not, but I did used to get excited when I got a riff down and played it for anyone that would listen, so I can kinda relate to why they would do it.

I get your point though

All those videos make me sick >.<....Although if they have only just started playing its rather good...But if theyve been playing for 5 years or even 2 years its really bad.
