I know I'm not bad, but, on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IazPEnI4fYU, and said: don't go overboard, just because he plays shows doesn't make him a prodigy. He then removed it, and a couple of people went to my video and gave it 1 stars: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBSJntHO6Ug, it had 4 before them. Am I bad? How do we compare? And could my UG brothers go and teach this overhyped jerk a lesson?

Play guitar becuase you love it, not becuase you want to one up some e-persona. Practice hard and always strive to improve - who cares what some unknown rates you out of five stars on ****in you tube?
Do you feel warm within your cage?

Seriously, if that kid is a prodigy than I'm a fucking god. I also like to add that you aren't that good but with more practice you will get there.

To the guy who said I'm not that good, I agree, it took me hours to film that video because I kept screwing it up.

I want to tell you a short story.

When my Dad was growing up in Scotland in the 60's, he learnt to play Guitar, starting at the age of 12 he played for 2 years, and then was the same age as this kid. He had a band when he was 13 that ran till he was around 16. Did people put videos of him on the internet at the time and call him a prodigy. Was he in the paper saying "Amazing 14 year old guitarist shocks world"; no, no he works for a computing company .

Just because young people play, it dosn't mean there amazing, it just means that they started younger than a lot of people did, most people don't start till early to mid teens, because that's when music starts to really become important to you.


tl;dr?

Prodigy is a word used to describe faggot children of over bearing Parents who live their musical aspirations through, not guitar gods.

I don't want to brag, but I could play that well when I was 14.. That kid is pretty average for a 14y old that has been playing for 2 years in my opinion. (I also started at 12 btw..)

You, my friend, can't be more right.

Yea man. Keep practicing and don't listen to the douchebags on youtube. Now you can, however, learn a lot of stuff from some of their constructive criticism. Yea but practice to keep a steady tremelo strum (or whatever it's called). Like even alternate picking. keep practicing. My advice is don't post a cover unless you're 90% sure you did good on it. Of course i'm not discouraging you, but youtubers do tend to worsen the situation

I'd say it's just some Van Halen fanatic who's name is Eric. I woudln't call him up on it in case you end up looking stupid. When I used to jam with my mate Eric (coincidentally) who plays the keys, we used to joke around and I'd call him Eric Sherinian. Unfortunatly Rory Petrucci doesn't have the same ring...

I haven't looked at either of the videos though but it sounds like somebody's being a dick to you over the internet (not unheard of). Forget about it. Shitty about the ratings though, I don't blame you for being pissed.

Oh, I knew that, I just meant a Van Halen fan shouldn't be insulting me on bad music.
