Would like some opinions on this.
We have a very informal jam session after work on fridays. It's been a weekly occurance for about 6 years now.
There are 3-4 of us that are usually there and another 2-3 guys that show up fairly regular. (couple guitars & bass sometimes drums and keyboards)
Someone just throughs out a riff and we spend 5 - 10 minutes bludgeoning it to death and then someone else does the same until we are all pretty much dead.
Anyone is welcome to join in and we almost always have another 3-4 people showing up. Skill levels range from a guy that just bought his first guitar an hour before he showed (honest) to people that are professional touring musicians (again honest).
What drives me nuts tho are the people that I am going to call "parrots". They know 15-20 songs or maybe more but if you don't play one of those songs they are completley lost. And when they do play a song and everyone starts to jam along they quit and say "Thats not how it goes" and get mad. Now some of these guys can really play the shit out of the songs that they do know, but thats all they know.
So I guess what I'm asking is am I wrong if I tell these guys to learn how to play or else just drink your beer and leave your guitar at home?

You should surgically attatch them to a pirate's shouldar and feed them nothing but crackers.

Or just call them Polly. All of them.
