Is mean ! laugh.gif



To say the least. Everyone flames so much, I started a topic just to see if it starts any fire about MattRach .

http://alloutguitar.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=435

You can follow it there, I expect it to get ugly soon.



However the moral of this little topic is to show how good our forums really are ! smile.gif

I didn't check the top guys before, but I guess your post is pretty much right... The #1 is ok, but nothing special to achieve that rank...

Besides Muris and David I would like to see Gustavo Guerra there, as he has the same name as me and is also a brazilian...

i agree.

actually.

anything that has to do with music + forum seems to quickly fall into flame-wars. (GMC being a rare exception)

a total shame everyone bashes on MattRach.

for a 17 year old, he is really good! you CANNOT deny that... i'm 18, and he's gotta be atleast twenty times more proficent then i am.


--------------------
What did you learn tonight?
while shouting so loud, you barely joyous, broken thing.
You are a voice that never sings, is what i say.
You are freezing over hell
You are bringing on that end you do so well
and you can only blame yourself, is what is say.

Yes hes good.

But I feel as if hes "absorbs" all the fan base that are missing out on guitarists that are just as good, if not better then him.

Such as Chris Feener.

I feel as if Gustavo Guerra, Muris, Cesar Huesca ( regardless of how weak his entry was) ,Chris Feener, David Walliman are all better then him , but some dont even have a chance simply because his fan base is so big.

Why is it big ?
Its beyond me. Based on just his guitar playing, I only like his live version of one of Hendrixs songs in Paris.
I think the real reason he has lots of fans is because he has the "it" factor.

Creative Video Editing, Simple yet mezmorizing compostions, and he "looks" like a potential star.
Good Player but I hate how he shadows out other AMAZING players on youtube, as well as the G-Idol Competition.

I completely agree. Nowadays people dont care if it takes skill, if its catchy they love it and will support them.

yea i got sorta mad at some of the kids who are trying out.. like.. one guy on his youtube page says this might be his big break.. personally i think even tho hes good for his age he really needs to get everything to perfection before asking for his break.. it takes time and effort and being good for your age doesn't make you the best of anyone.. and being better than everyone is what makes you a guitar god.

I just don't get why you care so much about all those "not good" entries, It's everyone's right to enter that competition no matter how good they are.

And these days, popularity has as much if not even more to do with making it in the music buisness than being a "guitar god", it's like the guys running the competition said, these days where there are so many aspiring musicians all over youtube and myspace you have to know how to promote yourself.

And I'm sure that if one of you'r friends was entering the competition, you would also vote for him regardless of his skills, and that's the deal with mattrach and his fans, in their opinions his a great musician, and they give him their vote, it's their right.

Fianlly, asking what all the hype is will be the same as asking what's all the hype today about the crappy hip hop of guys singing about woman and crime.
