Well, what would you like to hear? Lets do this, since you're fairly confrontational and straightforward, as opposed to myself... play your best guitar playing, or stick-playing where you overdub and do all kinds of nonsense, and I'll play it back to you the way it was supposed to be played.


First, you were the one who posted repeatedly how you can do it better when Josh posted videos of his band. No one else is claiming to be better than him, so lets use that as the standard. Pick a video, play the parts the way it's "supposed" to be played.

The onus is on you, since you're the one making braggadocios claims.

We are waiting.


I think I made my questions pretty clear in the first post. After all, this is my thread and not, like you come across as if, a thread where I've attacked all the stickists for not producing anything "exciting"? For sure, I can guitar something for you, and that other delusional guy that feels like I attacked him, and posted a plethorea of videos to make himself feel better .. I expect you to play something back to me. So what should we should we play? Bring on the suggestions.

All those videos i posted are of mey solo work or with my band. Would you mind telling me what time signatures are used in the 1st and 3rd videos of the 2nd post I made?


Oh, it's probably 5/4. No wait, it's 7/5,with a touch of jazz, no, I mean with a spice of 4/4 jambalaya ... lol, you trying to make yourself feel better by saying I can't say what timing that stuff you produced was supposed to be in? GIVE ME A BREAK. Give yourself a fucking break.

Mind you, you insulted my tone, my bandmates' tone, our playing and our note choice, comparing us to teenagers who feel the need to go to guitar center to show off on the floor models. Prove to us why those sentiments should hold weight.

"That video sounds okay, but I, and not bragging, can play much better and cleaner using bass and guitar. I think the tone is awful. A bit like the videos where guys go to Walmart and take a $10 guitar to show they can play slayer. Guess the stick sounds like a $10 guitar, except it adds a $10 bass to it, along with poor note choices. Any videos from here where guys rip the shit out of some metal and do crazy stuff you couldn't do with a bassist or guitarist? Or am I frontier?"

Or maybe

"Something that sounds like you're not showing off your right hand and left hand coordination at the same time, only for the sake of showing off, which I can do, but more showing it off because you don't have to put up with a crappy bass player degrading your guitarism. I've done a little bit of Chapman, mind you, but I can't come to terms with how poorly it sounds. With the video I posted, maybe it's not possible even, since the dude overdubbed the melody onto the bassline. If that's the case, I'll be fine with it and just look for a more competent bass-players. As for now, it's just I've not seen anything on the Chapman that blows me away."

I guess our ideas of confrontational are different then.

I'm starting to think "crappy bass players" aren't your real problem. Regardless, please post some examples of how my bands' music is supposed to be played, as you so offered.

OK, gear up and post an audio with video where we can equalize our differences musically.

I don't think I went that far, but if you say so, it's probably true that not only your tone was suboptimal, but so were your friends, and the tone must've been suboptimal. Or maybe you already felt so and now posted it. Sure, what should you and I play? Gear up and play something with a clock and newspaper or some shit in the background and I'll play it back to you. Instead of just whining about what awful of a person I am who dares to say your shit sounds like shit and then drag your bandmates into it. Or don't post anything at all. And in that case, shut the fuck up.
