Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum today.

A lot of you have been cool and helpful, willing to help out a guitarist brotha.

Others on the other hand have been rude as hell for no reason for one.

Two, there are a lot of guitar politicians. Your favorite music is the best and every other style sucks. I know.

...This is called being a guitar snob, a.k.a. douche bag guitarist.

No one has to play a certain way or think the same thing as you about playing guitar.

Whether you're a shredder, anti-shredder, jazzer, alternative player, etc... Everyone has their own taste in music. Let it be.

Anyway, I just thought I'd say that it would be cool if you turned non-douche bag and decided to be helpful to other guitarists...

I doubt we'll be seeing much of that in this thread.

As much as I appreciate your gesture, the douchebag people are generally the ones that tend tonot change, and telling them to change most likely won't do anything.

I'm not a douchebag though.

Not for you! You're the good ones!

I just like to preach this stuff every once and a while. I just hate to see guitarists negatively bash each other over stuff.

You know, somehow, I had a feeling you'd show up here and say something about that. Seriously. After I posted that, I was like, "You know what? I bet that darkstar guy is gonna find my post and call me a scenester again."

Idk, you are either becoming a douche bag guitarist, or are just whining like all the other little kids. It's the internet, on an online forums where you may not know anybody in real life, and if you do, it won't be too, too many; in light of that, why not play the part of an ass. Why not harass the noobs, we were put down just as much as you back in our time. Get used to it, and have fun here-- aka be a prick right on back to them. That is about as much help as you will need to survive... o, and if you get in a debate and lose-- admit your defeat, often times, you will find greater acceptance in submittance than in ignorance/ arrogance.

Eh...I think that the large majority of the people here understand that whoever they like is their opinions, and often times when they talk about their favorite guitarists, they think it's a given that people understand it's their opinion. Eventually with time spent here, I have learned that people will reply in fury if you don't slap a "in my opinion" on your post somewhere.
#12
Don't get me wrong. They can suck my ba***, =)

but I like to stand up for the guitarists who feel like they have to play a certain way to impress other guitarists, and not play or listen to what they truly dig. That junk is a tragedy.
#13
meh, I'm kinda both those guys rolled into one.

I try to be as helpful as I can (while still cracking a joke or two in the process) to anyone who is showing the slightest effort in helping them self and posting with a modicum of thought.

On the other hand, I feel no guilt or shame in exposing douchebags who simply whine about things, try to make themselves seem important by making others look bad, or are bigoted. I tend to "out-douchebag the douchebags" wherever I find them.

Sorry, but I don't really feel a need to change.

You might even call me a douchebag with a cause.

I'm just messin' with ya. It was a wonderful opportunity to seize after you said "I'm not a douchebag." It's not very often I get to post right after you, and if it is relevant to discussion, you WILL be called a scenester.

Yeah, I know you're just messing. I knew saying "I'm not a douchebag" at the end left a good opportunity, and I had a feeling you'd be the one to take it.

douche bag.

ah its an interesting term when you think about it. i mean an instrument used to clean out the vaginal region of a female? its a great invention. but we use it in vain when we call our friends vagina cleaners.

but is the douche the vaginal cleaner and the douche bag is what it comes in? if so we are calling each other bags.

it disappoints me

How can you expect someone not to be a douche bag when your profile says

hey, tell me I suck.
High as tits
#23
That's just because I want honest responses to my guitar playing...

But I definitely don't want someone to be like, "Hey, you freakin' gaya**, go light your guitar on fire because you suck so bad the one armed man from the Fugitive can play better than you!"
#24
TS, you suck. Also, Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, etc. have no emotion.

...Maybe they'll accept me now

Yikes! Using a used condom as a douchebag would lead to even more unplanned pregnancies than we have today. I'm glad we got this sorted now, TS. I'd hate to think of the trouble you might have caused.
