    It's a good thing you're doing.

    If he was a member posting videos here, you'd probably offer the same assistance.

    The guy knows. He's been told a gazillion times already I bet. Just enjoy it for the comedic worth.

    As a guitar player, I think what Brett did was admirable and it's something many people wouldn't do. They'd just prefer to make fun of the guy behind his back or in his comment section. As evidenced by your posts.

    There have been players here who didn't sound that much better than Brettify and they were always praised and given props. And they had been playing for 30 years. Much like I'm sure the people and friends around this guy tell him he sounds good. The guy is putting himself out there and playing which is more than most people are prepared to do. It takes balls. He's not saying he's hot shit or that he's nailing anything. He just needs more practice still.

    Default This has me baffled!

    Yeah the one thing you can say is the guy isnít arrogant, heís not coming off like heís a good musician or something. Heís just playing songs and posting videos having fun. But at least if heís posting the videos, he should understand to get his guitar in tune. Yeah I agree it was totally fun to laugh at it because itís so ridiculous, but Iíd kind of like to see if he would actually get better if he tuned, and stopped doing those ridiculous solos. Iíll consider it an experiment. So far he hasnít replied to me, and when he does Iím sure heíll take offense to it because he seems like he might have a little bit of an emotional thing going on so weíll see. He doesnít seem like the kind of guy that will take criticism, even constructive criticism that isnít attacking him, well.

    And yes if he were a member here posting videos like that, we would all try to help him not berate him. We know that. Well maybe Chris would berate him, the rest of us probably wouldnít.

    I really donít think he has and donít think he quite understands. Like I said maybe thereís a mental thing going on so weíll see.

    Maybe he thinks you are making fun of him by even asking him if he needs help? Maybe he thinks you aren't sincere. If he has his guard up, I'm not sure we can break through to him.

    Brettify has forced me to look at my own playing as I've been playing since I was 15 and admittedly not a great player. Not terrible, but not great. Just a bedroom player with a decent rig that manages to squeeze in 30-60 minutes of practice a day (nearly every day). I can play a lot of songs, and a lot of VH / RR solos, but I can never get them pinpoint - just OK or "pretty good"... and I mess 'em up a lot, even ones I've learned & have been playing for years. I should be way better guitar player than I am. Some of the players on this site amaze me.

    I guess my point is... I improve, but very slowly. Brettify has been pumping this garbage out for years with zero improvement. Not one iota. You watch a 2016 video, it looks like the one he put up last week. Meat hands, hopelessly out of tune... I've never seen fingers come that far off the neck during a "solo". He's a freaking miracle.

    I don't think he is delusional enough to think he's good, but I have no idea why he would keep spitting out these videos. I doubt he would ever accept any help, but I don't know why. If you enjoyed playing enough to learn these songs & put these videos out, wouldn't you love your hobby enough to want to improve at it? even a little?

    Yeah. Tuning is usually the first thing you try to master before you try to nail China Grove.
