    First of all, I think it's repugnant to judge another player we don't know.....we can have opinions (like the Warren Haynes thread elsewhere). But he's a pro, has several good gigs and is makes his living at it. People in that position are fair game.

    But here we have a bad recording showcasing a player that we know nothing about. If he's done 4 years at Berkley, Miami, MI etc. one could say maybe he/she doesn't get it. However if this is a person who's been playing for 6 months or a year (or 20 years) and is trying to express himself on his instrument, who are we to make the good/bad/indifferent call.

    A mind is like a parachute, it only works if it's open.

    I thought "bad guitar player" was just the name of the song.........
    Sounds like it is slowed down digitally, almost like a mismatched
    tempo for a loop or sample......I don't think the playing is bad at all...just
    a little weird, like digitally slowed down flamenco or Al dimeola..
    could def hear the grain was out of line, particularly in the 2nd half.
    My guess is this post should of been posted on 4/1/06......
