Do you have that douchebag friend that has been playing less than half as long as you, but thinks he is better and knows more about guitar then you?

I got one. However, I must admit he's got insanely good writing skills, but he just gets overzealous and thinks he's better than me for knowing a power chord. But then I say, play an F#m7 chord and he goes, "Show me where that's actually used in a song."

And I play him quicksand by David Bowie.
Hey look, a stoner/doom album.

I do have one, he is an arrogant shit. All my friends tell me I'm better than him, but he still believes he's the dogs bollocks. I don't really give a toss about him anymore.

Yeah, I have a friend who will play the tapping from crazy train and then some incoherant "shredding." Then I play Capricho Arabe and make him wet himself.

I have a friend who has being playing half as long as me but he doesn't brag about being better ... i'm sort of like his mentor.
#15
Yeah, if stuff like that occurs, you just have to say: 'Look at this man, you gotta place your index finger here to play that chord.' Then you point at some place on the fretboard and while he's looking and doesn't suspect anything, you kick him in the balls. That'll show that dumb f*ck.

EDIT: I'm a douche when it comes to equipment though. I know what's good and what's bad and I know it better than anyone else, especially you.

What is it about guitarists that they have to prove their superior skills? Have a friend who thinks he's better than you? RAGE! Someone plays Guitar Hero? RAGE! That's lame; we as guitarists should perpetuate the music, not stifle it.

Yep or I HAD a friend like that. He's actually very talented in a lot of things he does but he used to think he was great at guitar and he wasn't. He was such a D-bag, we aren't friends anymore so doesn't matter.

yeah, as players of a far tougher to master and cooler instrument .

To TC, I hate to admit it, but I am that friend. I've been playing for half as long as my drummer (who's main instrument is guitar) and yet I sing, do half the solos in the whole band and write most of the songs. What can I say, I don't try and put my friend down, he's probably better technique/theory wise anyway. but when it comes down to it, he acknowledges I am at least a more proficient songwriter.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

hmm yes.. and the annoying douchebag, thats just a douchebag all the time, and he thinks having a "big ego" is good.. some people think it is, but he cant back it up cos hes shit with women.

I have a friend who plays drums and thinks he plays guitar & bass. I was talking to him the other day, he's like, " I got $300 bucks..I think I'll buy a new guitar. " I'm like "What? Why would you need one? " Him " Cause I play guitar. Bass, too. " Me- " Since when" Him- " Since I was like friggin eight I was over my aunt's once and she taught me! "

He then went on, claiming he was a better guitarist then I could ever hope to be. Now I've only been playing for just over a year, but I'm confident I'm not that noobish. So, I asked him to demonstrate his mad skills. He grabs my guitar and plays the first three chords to Master Of Puppets.
