    Did anybody bumped into this advertisement??
    It says:
    "If I can show you a way of mastering the most notoriously difficult Bass guitar skill ever known to man, the very same skill Pro's use to play spine tingling lead guitar, incredible lush sounding chords, tear inducing riffs and the ability to jam like they were born riding a guitar in less than 60 minutes guaranteed...

    ...how would you react?

    you can read the all thing HERE

    This is so pathetic, I don't belive anybody is stupid enough to believe this thing... :scowl:

    The funniest promise they give is "...become very popular with everyone, especially the opposite sex!" :D :D

    First off, he put Kurt Cobain in the same league as Steve Vai.... :eyebrow:

    I'm rather speechless aside from that....just wow

    One these TBers with a lotta cash lying around should make use of his money back guarantee and tell us what this guy is trying to feed us.

    This certainly doesn't sound too good to be true.... :rolleyes:

    Wow, I read half way down the page and then quit. This types of things are marketed to those people who have sat for years dreaming about being a musician, but never made that dream a reality. I wish people would realize that it takes years of dedication to become an accomplished musician; there are no short cuts.

    .....Well, at least Esteban is a little better. :D

    One of the best reads I've had in a while. I'd love to see what his secret is, but even if I had the money to just throw away, I can't imagine giving that man a penny even to satisfy my own curiosity.

    Somebody did that a while ago and posted the results, it was just a strange way of learning note positions.

    "...play any chord in any shape anywhere on the guitar neck in the speed of light"

  7. Well thats good, I thought this was just s sham to get our money. :rolleyes:
  8. I find it funny that Kurt Cobain pretty much ripped off Sonic Youth in guitar playing, and they called him a genius.

    Kurt and Sonic Youth rub drumsticks against the strings.

    Genius to me, but to your average stereotypical wanker guitar player, you'd just get laughed or screamed at.

    Reading that kind of makes me want to cry.

    In fact, it really makes me want to cry.

    Here is another quote from the end of the advertisement

    "Because for a limited time... how limited I don't know... you can get the system for just $27.99... that's right! Less than a night out on the town or 1 hour of guitar instruction...

    And remember... you're covered with my no-questions-asked guarantee...

    Face it... you have absolutely nothing to lose, do you?"

    Duh, 27.99 dollar on this wonky system is more than too much money to lose.
  12. Is it safe to say that the quality of the product reflects the quality/level of professionalism of the webpage? :p
