But man, what a loon ;<

And how for real? Because there is a very large for realness that says I would rather not talk to the man at all. If I could put it off for another three and a half weeks my returning parents could deal with the crazy little man and leave me free to be the quite different crazy little man that I like being. :picklehat

you're always allowed to be for real, regardless of whether the other person does or not. but i wouldn't suggest offending the vicar (which always makes me think of miss marple stories :P) if it would in turn piss off your parents. plus, if he's just lost his wife, he's probably in a bad state already. you wouldn't want to push him over the edge or anything. :( and sometimes being nice to other people, even if you don't want to, can make you feel better, too. when i get really depressed, it's usually because i'm stuck inside myself, which translates to selfishness in its logical end. and now ends this installment of "ask pseudo dr. sadie." :(

I remember one time I sat on my wiener :) you should tell stories like that to the Vicar :/

hi, martin fowler. :/

Hi Sadie :/ I have a question or a problem...

I'm in a band now that has lasted more than a few sessions and I'm trying to just enjoy it and not be too critical like I have in the past. What's the best way to tell a guitar guy to stop doing never ending solo's and turn his amp down? I don't want to get booted out of this band but this guy is driving me insane. You can hear him in this short dark video of us...

If I may interject,

Having been in a few bands as a guitarist I think you problem is that you're just jamming (if the video name is correct) not playing a song.
While jamming, often the guitarist feels the need to make things more interesting with a solo or whatnot. It's not much fun playing the same riff over and over again if there arn't any vocals or other elements taking center stage.

If you want to stop endless solos try and sway the band into playing more structured songs. Or working on parts of your own songs which may not neccacarily be the guitar solo part ;)

Often you'll find a guitarist will go into endless solo mode just because they're bored and would be more than happy to work on something other than listless jamming if asked.

Thanks Metal...

That song we are playing is Creep by Radiohead. Most of the time we jam, but we do have structured songs that so far I've never heard him actually play properly. The rhythm guitarist is cool and play's the song note for note and sings, but not the guy playing lead.

I've been searching eBay all day and I can't find a glowing piece of the Aggro Crag.

GADZOOKS Nov 1st, 2006 10:30 PM

So what.

Pub Lover you should turn that fruitcake story into a horror story and I the end you find out that peices of the fruitcake has body parts of his wife.

And you can make it as fucking depressing as you want, it's all you buddy.

sadie Nov 2nd, 2006 09:30 AM

aw, you're such a sweetie, gadzooks.

martin fowler, i think you got some good advice from metal militia there (strangely enough), and i wish i could agree that it were that simple. however, it has been my experience that chronic guitar masturbators like the one you describe have very weak egos and react very badly to any kind of (even constructive) criticism.

it could be that he has been highly praised over his lead abilities by rednecks who love listening to the end solo of "free bird" repeatedly with lit lighters. it could be that he has a natural talent for free form notes that go along with chords, that he feels the flow. it could be that he just really sucks at rhythm. regardless, this is where he has found his validation, and he isn't likely to step out of it.

this is probably why you've been fired from every band you've ever been in; people don't really want to hear the truth, and they especially don't want to hear it bluntly.

my suggestion is to try to casually talk about how using an exclamation point at the end of every sentence it loses its power...just like a really cool jamming guitar solo gets old after 20 minutes. and ending every son with a really cool jamming guitar solo gets old after two songs...

You probably would. ;)

I was actually expecting something much worse from you.

I think that somebody who would get burned by hot steam,
crushed by giant, glowing, pseudo-boulders,
and live to get a piece of the hell they went through wouldn't sell it

GADZOOKS Nov 4th, 2006 12:11 AM

You are such a drip.

Oh wow, you're really busting out the hip vocabulary!
