    Default This has me baffled!

    So when I was looking at some covers the other night on yt I came across this guy. Now look I'm not one to EVER attack someone's playing or someone trying to get better but this guy has me so unbelievably baffled I just had to post about this. And it's not that he's posted like 5 videos, he's got 300+ and the playing is all like this!

    I don't even know what tuning he is using to play these weird chords that are all always out of tune anyway, but he does this on literally everything. And the soloing, oh my god I can't even fathom what's going through his mind when he plays these. And then to post them. And his facial NEVER changes on any video, it's completely expressionless no matter what. And then on top of that he has 32 subscribers! And even some comments like "great job!" You have to see these and watch some of them they're all like this.

    I'm seriously not trying to bash the guy I'm just shocked at his playing that he's put up for all to see. Even better is it seems the guy's name is Brett! Hahahaha!

    Here's Symphony of Destruction as an example, and this is one of his better ones. I couldn't stop watching them the other night my mouth just fell open.


    And yes he does do some VH. Check out Jump. Holy shit!!!

    You know what... It still sounds better than the plastic clicks of a guitar hero controller.

    Now that's true. Again I'm not bashing the guy for trying I'm just amazed by it and the fact that 300 different videos and it never changes or even gets better.

    A few ideas come to mind seeing these videos.
    1. Ears broken
    2. Tuner missing
    3. Skill lacking
    4. Emotions on vacation
    5. Jeffery Dahmer

    Very strange.

    Never seen this one. It's YRGM and it's a good view of what he's playing. Besides being horribly out of tune I think he's in Drop D or something. He's sort of trying to play the right chords, wrong positions and just a fucking mess but he must be looking at tabs or something. And the solo...wowee, I bet it would sound better if just hit all the strings at once open haha.

    This guy even plays the drums. Totally prolific and he really lays down a killer groove on the Greg Kihn classic, "jeopardy".
    Brett, you just can't teach that level of "feel". The music just flows.
    Ok, I am headed back to the "holy head case" thread. This guys playing is the musical equivalent to that chicks daily rants.

    The only thing I can think of is some sort of brain damage. I say that in all seriousness. It sounds like someone who's trying to relearn mechanics.

    Does the guy ever speak?

    No man he never says or does anything else. He doesn't look like he's got issues, looks like a normal guy. I understand being tone deaf but this is beyond that.

    Ok Ive stopped laughing long enough to type this. It's either A) a joke, or B) legitimately something wrong with him.

    There is no possible way those can be serious covers unless he's mentally ill. And I say that as a real scenario, not poking fun.

    I've been asking Jape to post clips for years... Glad he finally came through! Haha.

    But yeah, this guy's take was, ummm... interesting.

    Maybe if he is socially odd or something, using some type of hidden personally costume could really enhance his playing. Ya know.... something like wearing a mask, possibly some type of bucket for a headdress and and jumpsuit....... May allow the real him to come out and blow our minds.

    But, for right now, tuner operation is step 1.

    Look I've been laughing my ass of for two days but now I'm like wtf is going on.

    I think he's totally serious he must have a mental issue although he doesn't look like it. He knows how the songs go and he's able to know to change parts and stuff.
