    Twice this week our guitarist said during rehearsal, "That lead break is too long, we need to cut it in half."

    This is the same guy who plays with a Marshall stack and gets told to turn UP by soundmen.

    I play with an SVT and Fridge and I often get asked to turn up by soundmen too. I can't remember the last time I was asked to turn down. When I was young and poor, I used an SVT and Fridge for every gig because it was all I had. If you know how to use the volume control, there is no reason for playing to loudly.

    Perhaps he's heard of your ignore list?

    Isn't everybody? Sometimes I wonder how you manage to have a conversation. Nice to see your thread attracting so much attention.

    I play with a guitarist who keeps telling me to turn up and almost demands I play more.

    He even asked for a bass solo in one song

    Could be he runs out of riffs to play, and wants the lead cut in half so he doesn't have to repeat them?

    I played open mic blues jams with a guy who played the exact same licks for every key there was. Could only do one 12 bar solo, and repeated it in whatever key was appropriate for the song. Heck, he even played it in Em and then again in G major in the same song.

    I just woke up from a nap, read this and almost believed it.

    ...In all seriousness, I have on especially rare occasions encountered the elusive wise guitarist but I wasn't fast enough to snap a picture.
