Have a look through those threads.

But remember, music is not a competition, by all means be a little competitive but don't let a rivalry build up, you will get caught up in it, and rather than thinking clearly to see how you can improve in certain areas you will cut corners/rush and your playing will suffer.

There may be areas you are better in than him, don't let him become a rival, make friends with him and learn from him and he may learn from you too.

Yeah I don't know anyone who doesn't play better/learn faster when there's a little competition. All I'm saying is don't overdo it and get too competitive.

theres a thread asking about slap songs on the first page look in there.

and music isn't a competition, learn because you want to learn not because you want to be better than some other guy. just keep that in mind
