    This is a conversation a friend and I had; I'm not going to say who is me and who's the friend, so as not to bias anyone, but could some of y'all do me a favor and tell me exactly who you think is acting crazy in this conversation? This is bit of conversation is totally unedited and uncut, so there's nothing slanting it one way or the other, just tell me who you thinks crazy.

    Thanks

    [22:37] hecto24: when i play guitar
    [22:37] hecto24: do you think i need to calm down?
    [22:37] permanentsp: that would help
    [22:38] permanentsp: trying to control your picking hand especially, one of the main things I notice with you is that you hit strings you don't mean to frequently
    [22:38] permanentsp: one of the main flaws*
    [22:38] hecto24: not really in soloing
    [22:38] hecto24: most of the time i mean to hit more than one string
    [22:39] permanentsp: well yeah, there's nothing wrong with doing htat
    [22:39] permanentsp: but sometimes you do hit strings that like you're not even fretting while soloing up in like E on the 12th fret
    [22:39] hecto24: ok
    [22:39] hecto24: well i cant really change the style i play
    [22:40] hecto24: i mean if you dont like then thats that and dont play with me
    [22:40] permanentsp: hahahhahahahahhaha
    [22:40] hecto24: dont mock me
    [22:40] permanentsp: alright
    [22:41] hecto24: what else were you gonna say>
    [22:41] hecto24: ?
    [22:41] hecto24: that was way to long to just be "alright"
    [22:41] permanentsp: I was going to say
    [22:41] permanentsp: hitting open strings that aren't in the key you're soloing in accidentally isn't really a style, more a flaw that can be fixed
    [22:41] hecto24: well i wasnt speaking of that
    [22:41] hecto24: i was speaking of the style in which i play
    [22:42] hecto24: im not stupid you sarcasrtic smug **** head
    [22:42] permanentsp: you said
    [22:42] permanentsp:
    [22:39] hecto24: well i cant really change the style i play
    [22:42] hecto24: yeah
    [22:42] permanentsp: when did I even say you should change your style?
    [22:42] hecto24: i just said
    [22:42] hecto24: i cant change the way in whcih i play
    [22:42] hecto24: when you said i should calm down
    [22:43] permanentsp: i thought, since I had just talked about one aspect of your playing, that was what you were talking to
    [22:43] hecto24: well dont think
    [22:43] hecto24: that gets you into trouble
    [22:43] permanentsp: you asked if I thought you needed to calm down!
    [22:43] hecto24: yes
    [22:43] hecto24: i did
    [22:43] hecto24: jsut to see what you would say
    [22:43] permanentsp: what the hell is the point of asking me that?
    [22:43] hecto24: i dont really care about your opinion

    I went with both. hecto24 seemed to ask a simple question, and got more of an answer than anticipated. Several times seemed to try to cut the topic off, but permanentsp kept critiquing, appearing to rub hecto24 the wrong way. hecto24 then got a bit weird about it and permanentsp appeared to get weird about hecto24 getting weird. There are parts that I can't tell if they are jokes or insults. This is why things like IM can be bad ways to communicate at times.

    Just hilarious. The conversation got weird at the end..funny. I'd say hector acted crazy.

    :rofl: Thus we can at least deduce they are compatible?

    I don't think hecto24 wanted to hear that he's a lousy guitar player. I think he was hoping to pass his lack of ability off as just an eccentric brand of creativity.

    Sounds kind of like what happens when a guy gets asked that dreaded question, "Do these pants make me look fat?" :surprised :surprised (Actually, there is a tactful answer to that question: "I don't know. Take 'em off so I can compare.")

    It's not too hard to deduce that you're permanentsp...

    Anyway, hecto probably didn't entirely understand what you were trying to say, but I think you rubbed it in more than helped.

    Okay, I admit that I sort of wasted my vote. I never had a chance to read the transcript until now. I just clicked 'both' because you're both musicians and I've never met a sane one yet.:biggrin:
    In going over it, though, it appears that Hecto started the whole conversation just as an excuse to be a prick.



    By the way, I know nothing about guitars. I am just now learning to play the radio.

    Wild guess: Wasteof2 is hector...

    Maybe if you and Moonbear give him a big, fat kiss...

    Hey Waste! Hold out for the cancer clinic...

    Hmm, I thought it was quite clear that wasteof was the second person, permanentsp.

    Nothing is quite clear to me any more. I'm going back to my original vote, and then some. Not only are they both nuts, but so is everyone participating in this... wait a sec... never mind...
     
  20. Apr 3, 2005 #19
    haha ho ho he he hi hi !
    tin tin tin who is goin nuts?

    Hecto24 is too much lol, he was sane in the process to rock over while fighting, but definatly insane [crazy?] in the way of braking social norms

    ummm...uhhh..no i am not crazy while saying this :biggrin:
     
  21. Apr 3, 2005 #20
    Well, I'm permanentsp; the one voted crazy far less often than the other guy. Hurray for me...
