These two topics sort of go together. I'll start with this guitarist first. Older guitarist probably in his 50's. I see him around at jams and such. He's not a bad guy, but he's one of those people that just finds something wrong with what everyone does except for him. No exaggerations. I think he believes that everyone sucks except for him and a couple famous guitarists. The thing is that he only sounds good when he plays by himself. Which leads to..why are musicians(not all, I know..but some or even a lot) so judgmental of each others skills or way others play? It seems like you have to be the next jimmy page or victor wooten to get any respect from other musicians. And if you like to keep it basic and simple, then apparently you suck. It seems like the only ones that don't judge by skills all the time are non musicians. I thought music was about expression and fun. Apparently it seems to be more of who's better than who nowadays.
