I'm gonna rant a little bit,

There, I've said it in the title of this thread. Don't flame me too hard guys .

I just wanted to thank everyone involved with this site that has taken the time/effort to post up their playing. Wether it'd have been a video or an mp3 etc.

Being willing to step up and post yourself up on a site like this takes balls imho. I feel that doing that kind of thing is as important as the people who do stand up in comedy clubs. The comedy club circuit is the breeding ground of new ideas and movements. Without the players who are out there, standing up in front of their peers,I worry that we might slip back into the dark ages.

Good luck too you!

Posting up examples of your playing is pretty much like having sex, even when it didn't turn out like you wanted it, it's still pretty good that you did it.

That's the truth !

I'm sure there are people on here who remember the days before we all had the internet. Most of us thought that we were probably the only people we'd meet that were interested in the stuff we're into.

It's cool that we can all share stuff now. I like this whole internet thing, being able to play music to each other across the globe is cool.

I know I'm sounding a little bit "old school" here , but what the hell.

Indeed... and also true for both, nobody on youtube would want to see me do either. Props to everyone who has the balls to do so.

Re: I'm gonna rant a little bit,

I agree man, some people give constructive criticism and you can actually learn from it, but some people just troll on your video, I posted 3 videos, 2 covers and 1 funny cover (using a kid's guitar) I got some support, feedback, hints and alot of people bashing me for "not playing real metal"
and it did anger me that they talked crap, but it felt good that someone found my playing good and actually gave me confidence,

Re: I'm gonna rant a little bit,

Rant away ol' man, I think this is a great thread! I'm digging most of the stuff posted here already.

I also have made some attempts at recording stuff but then think it's not good enough and end up not sharing it or maybe forgetting about it.

Here's some random playing with my RG:

I'll make sure to post something more finished when I get the time.

Keep posting your music guys!

Re: I'm gonna rant a little bit,

I've always been self concience when playing infront of people, I know it shouldn't be that way, because if you think of yourself as the audience, you want to see thay guy play the guitar, I guess it's natural.

Ben
Just don't go getting the two mixed up there Ben or or you could end up banned from here for posting "inappropriate material"

I love seeing the clips people post and i wouldn't flame some-one just because i don't necessarily like it. Theres been some really cool stuff on here

Re: I'm gonna rant a little bit,

i find these youtube posts actually quite emberassing, especially the ones when someone has a bag over his/her head. I have never understood the need to show off in whatever way. If you want to be seen and especially you (EGGY) since you can play quite nicely, go and play infront of an audience. I personally am pretty much turned off to see a halfnaked 33 year old sitting in a shabby apartment and the only the thing which is left is a weird video. Don't mean you personally. But would like to know why you see a need to do it. I think that pretty much goes for the whole youtube culture crap.

Re: I'm gonna rant a little bit,

^^ Wow...crazy post

Eggy does play in a band in front of an audience!! But how many of us can go see him play??? So he shares his stuff with us, which is so cool. It's not showing off in any way. If thats the way some-one sees it then they are the one with issues!! Coz under that train of thought no-one would ever join a band!!
