As far as guitar goes, you shouldn't talk down to anyone. Ignore the man.

It makes his e-penis bigger. You just have to accept the fact that some people don't know how to take advice and just assume that it's some idiot on the internet trying to make fun of them, they don't like having advice on their pages for other people to see, it makes them look bad...

However, I do appreciate what he played a lot more than what you played.

Who gives a fuck. Guitar isn't about being better than anyone, it's about having fun, doing what you love, expressing yourself etc etc.

Get over it.

I say, learn to fingerpick, or have him learn to tap, and let us see then, because that guy did a pretty good job. You're playing two completely different styles right now, but if I were forced to compare, I say he were the better guitarist. Not for lack of trying though, because he's obviously a lot older than you.
Plus, it's not a big deal. Intrnts not srs buisness.

yeah this is definitely true. hard rock and country dont belong together, unless your john5 lol.

i guess my main point is, im not trying to claim to be god of guitar or anything, but considering ive attemped stuff like arpeggios from hell or trilogy suite, i didnt feel like he could tell me im not worth anything as a musician.
#16
that guy is very skilled. finger picking and slide guitar! but he still shouldnt talk down on you. thats very immature of him.. especially if he's like middle aged.

He obviously has a small penis.
Why he would say anything like that is beyond me.

I think his piece is possibly harder than yours to be honest. Not only that, Tapping is quite an easy technique, and isn't it(Edit: by "it", I meant Eruption) generally regarded as a beginner song? Well whatever the case, if that is the video you gave him advice on, I didn't find anything wrong with it at all.
#20
again, forget the example, i was just using it as a general example. hell, forget the playing altogether, i just thought he was overcritical of my playing when i tried to give him some advice.

and no, i gave him advice on a different song

Tapping isn't hard at all.
#23
Well to answer the initial question, he isn't in any position to talk you down as discouraging someone like that makes no sense since just about everyone started at the bottom. Maybe he was just kinda offended that a teen thinks he knows more than he does.
#24
Going on just playing, I think his is more 'noteworthy'

Going on being an asshole, he has no excuse to be.

That made me laugh.

No girlfriend though, sadly.
