Ok, so I stumbled across a guitarist who so obviously wants me to MattRach.... the early one who did Canon Rock before he adopted the bobble headed afro look!! His main goal is to be top 10 in gtr-idol and people keep leaving comments saying how awesome he is......if he gets top 10 in guitar idol I will give up playing guitar for ever....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Wbde-Atf1U...feature=related

Please restore some faith in guitarists, my opinion is that he is trying to hard and needs to stop being so annoying, sit down, work on his phrasing and vibrato and stop trying to play everything fast.......he really is terrible IMO but with all these comments about him being the next satriani I am starting to think I am becoming the worlds first grumpy old 23 year old!!

Iain!

Oh. my. god. that was painful. i think he should start by learning what phrasing is, besides the fact that that just felt like he rushed the whole thing. ouch. my ears.

i must admit.. i enjoyed his own personal composition.. its very good saying that hes just like what 15.. but i did post on his canon rock that he should not be in top 10.. i get sorta sad when i see videos like this knowing that guys like muris could play canon rock 100x better but don't because they know its overplayed.. i hope he doesn't get top 10.. or at least the judges don't choose him

Im so tired of hearing this song, He needs to be disqualified for it, He's not even playing it that well, misses notes, terrible tone, awkward pauses between sections. If he gets top 20, Ill shoot myself in the foot.

I will admit, the cover is pretty crappy, and he is being a loser by covering it like 50 times.

However, I really like his composition for Guitar Idol, some pretty cool melodies in there. Overall I think he is a much better composer than he is a guitarist.

http://www.guitar-idol.co.uk/carlo-bardoli. Yall have to admit, he isn't that bad in this one. And he is like 14.

It isnt that bad...

Honestly Im a bit disappointed that people are bashing him so much especially here. I mean yeah it could be better but shouldn't we be sending him ways to improve instead of bashing him on youtube and here.

I agree totally. In my mind GMC was about encouraging people in the learning to help them keep the enthusiasm and evolve.
Even though they are not Top 10 material, I agree to that, the bashing is unneccessary and gives me bad vibes.
Why being nice to not-so-good-yet-people who hangs on GMC, but bash them on other sites. And who knows, they might even be the same people.

I agree with this..
I haven't heard it yet due to restrictions on work, but bashing isn't the way to go.
We should rather be telling him what to do better if there's something wrong with his playing..

...my two cents anyway smile.gif

Come on guys don't get childish... it wasn't that bad and I can bet my life that you bashers can't play it as good as him tongue.gif
Seriously now, why some of you left such horrible comments on his video? I thought we had a really mature community that doesnt do stuff like that, so restore MY faith in you and don't post such comments again please!

It's one of the better cannon rock covers I've heard. I never liked the covers of that song to begin with though, its the epitome of tasteless guitar showoffness. Not necessarily even the hardest thing to play, just about the cheesiest thing you can come up with while saying "hey look at me, I can play guitar". That said, he may not have played it as well as other people but I liked his version better than most.

He gets on my tits lol (Sorry if I'm not allowed to say this). It isn't even his guitaring it's just his arrogant attitude. I want everybody to be happy with their guitaring and if he is happy then I'm glad. If he wants to improve get to GMC biggrin.gif And if he wants to be arrogant go and hang out with Axl Rose.

For once I totally agree with you! laugh.gif wink.gif
His playing is ok, but I hate arrogant people like that, his faces just seem so fake to me. Feeling your music is much more than making faces like you are, it shows in your playing aswell, I can tell there is feeling in Gilmour, Muris, or Walliman's playing without looking at them. He just seemed like he was concentrating on making faces for the camera so people think he has feeling. As for all the great comments he's getting, to youtubers, if you can play Canon Rock you are amazing. laugh.gif

For those who thought I was bashing him, I wasnt bashing him......if he wanted to improve and asked me "how can I be better?" I would do my best to help him. I understand that some of his melodies are well done, especially for such a young age. I was more annoyed by how people build him up to be some kind of super guitarist, if you look at his first video and then that video he has gotten to be more and more up himself, and has developed arrogance that even goes beyond Ted Nugent tongue.gif

Muris, or Marcus could outplay almost anyone on the planet, yet they don't adopt cheesy smurf smiles and try to look like King Dong. They let the playing do the talking........but if they did act like gimp's in their video's I could understand it......but I think you should let your guitar playing do the talking, have fun with it and show your having fun....an ideal example is gustavo guerra, you can see how much fun he has playing guitar and is a killer guitarist, yet this carlo boy is a poor guitarist and instead of posting vids and seeing if any constructive criticism comes back, he tries to show off which I hate. The tapping thing at 1:11 really gets my blood boiling, I just wish I could reach into the computer screen with a plastic spoon and scoop his still beating heart out of his chest and show it to him before he dies!!
