I'm all about the I suck syndrome,, oh damn i said i'm all about something,,, *hops up turns mtv off, bans self for 2 months*,
sorry guys, it slipped hehe
anyway, i have done exactly what cary was talking about, it doesn't bother me that much when i'm around a obviously better player, I'm just watching and trying to remember everything going "cool", "show me that" ect. but when i'm around players that haven't been playing as long, or don't practice as much, ect. ., ok, bluntly, players i know i am better than, not trying to be arrogant, because i'm by no means "good", adequate for rhythm.. maybe..,,.
but i get around players that look up to me for advice and ask me questions and are always the ones going, whoa, thats cool, show me that. I'm fine unless i'm showing them and screw it up, miss notes, or buzz the note out, ect., stupid little things that guitar players do. then i hit the pity party button., or not knowing the answer to something, or something as simple as them knowing how to play something i don't, it kills me.
I'm kind of hesitant to really try to stop this reaction in myself because it never fails that as soon as i'm away from everybody and just playing i'll either search thru wholenote and find what i'm having problems with and obsess over it until i understand, or work with a song until it sounds better than the way the other person played it.
so i think it's a good thing, sort of.. on one hand i hate the feeling of it. but after i don't have the problem anymore it's all cool.
