    Since when can we not make fun of anything?
    I will not buy that for a second.
    If we operate on the model of "everything is super...great job!", we will soon be wondering why we're neck deep in dreck.

    Criticism can have a moderating or corrective function that is required when it comes to mastering complex tasks.

    I'm guilty of some bitter sarcasm, but when it comes to things like this - The guy seems to be a beginner intermediate player and he's trying.

    He's not pretending to be an expert and seems to be giving it an earnest go. It's in these cases where I kind of shy away from being mean.

    The vid is about 3.5 minutes too long.

    It could be, if you want it to be. Be the change you want to see.

    The guy is jamming and not hurting anyone. It's possible he uploaded the video with the intent of having a friend or instructor look at it, and not necessarily for purposes of mass ridicule. Fair criticism is generally reserved for those who seek it and as far as I can see, he's not selling anything.

    This would be a demo video that is fair game for criticism.

    I'll not say anything about his playing because he's better than me. But that tune:confused: Now I can't get it out of my head!!!!!
