Youtube demo w*nkers

Recommended Posts

God I've always thought there should be a collection of the best (i.e. WORST) tutorial and 'demonstration' vids off youtube here.

Everytime I want to buy a new pedal or other music stuff, I always go onto youtube just because 10 out of 10 there will be some moron out there showing the world how his pedal sounds. And his wonderful skills (note: it's mostly men). So I am kind of grateful but am mostly just annoyed.

The video's almost always start with "I have been asked to put this on youtube" which I don't believe anyway...

I don't know, I can't find the best/worst ones that annoyed me the most but please share your own here.

Is it just me? Any idea why people do this???

- Rant over -

YouTube - PIGNOSE 7-100 & FENDER + KINMAN MK-2

YouTube - BOSS BD-2 Blues driver and VOX AC-15 demo

that's because guitar players are twats.

are we just talking about people showing off their gear? or their 'wonderful skills'? cause there's some amazing videos of guitarists just playing whatever in their bedrooms 8-)

Nothing beats

for sheer sad geekery (though still somehow impressive). ;)

Thankfully real music isn't all about technical prowess or I'd be screwed.

What?! Even Joe Satriani??? No fucking way. He's a top bloke. :popcorn:

Erm. I used to be really into Joe Satriani actually. Still listen to his stuff.

But yes. Even him.

Don't get me started on Steve Vai.

Stripey, that is a huge crock of shit.

Every guitarist there has ever been is a twat. It doesnt even make sense as a generalisation cos it covers such a broad scope of people.?(

Have YOU ever met a guitar player that isn't a twat? I haven't.

I'm extending this out to all musicians. They're all tossers.

How about all people?

All things ever?

Everything that has ever been or will be.

Any yes I've met fucking LOADS of guitarists that arent twats.

No you haven't. They just are.

Still not as bad as drummers though of course. Christ, they want shooting.

True. Egotistical morons.

Anyway. We were speaking about idiots on youtube demonstrating their horrible skill or demoing a pedal in the most unhelpful manor imaginable. Not 'proper' musicians that actually play in a band. With other people. With an audience.

This planet is one giant twat filled with lots of little twats running about blowing things up and making silly faces while wanking off their guitars at home.

heh.

The close mindedness of some of the people on a music forum is unbelievable.

Dispite the hugely over exaggerated comments about all drummers or all guitarists or all musicians being twats is not even worth merit, even generalising a group of people like that is rediculas, thats like saying all catholics fuck kids, or all muslims have terrorists tendancies,

the thought that some people here even can call that an opinion is shocking.

Being a twat is a personality trait not dependant on what instrument you play and thinking otherwise is unbeliavable halarious
