Feeling down for no reason? Pissed off just because you couldn't sleep well last night? Stressed? Frustrated? Here's the place to complain!

I wonder if we have one (or many) of topics like this, already, but I couldn't find any.

Ok, I'll go first here. I'm really frustrated that I can't seem to master Mr. Lavendell's Neoclassical intermediate solo. And the fact is, I know that I'm not supposed to master it yet. It's just really annoying, having played for 3+ or 4+ hours for 3 or 4 days for now and still not seeing the results. And another fact: I know that I'm not supposed to see the results yet. biggrin.gif I know that if I keep training like this, one day I'll master whatever I'm training. I've played for some years (although irregularily) and I know that it takes time to learn things. Patience is the key.

So what's the big idea about complaining? There is no idea. I'm just frustrated. biggrin.gif

Another thing is that because I haven't been playing like this for years, my left wrist is really tired right now. So I should give it a rest. But I don't want to! biggrin.gif I want to keep training! Well, guess there's no escaping it, resting is also an important part of training.

Then my knees hurt all the time. I have no idea what's wrong with me. I have a doctor appointment on Monday, but the pain is really annoying, since no regular drugstore medicines (burana, aspirins) can help the searing pain. So I'm annoyed easily.

And I'm quitting smoking. Sixth day going without a smoke. I don't want any, but I get annoyed nevertheless. It's a terrible drug, every smoker knows it (right, Mr. Varajic?).

Well, besides all this, I'm really happy now because it's weekend. biggrin.gif Sometimes there are just too many things and I need t get them out of my head.

Go on, release your pointless anger and bad mood!

I'm really pissed about the vocalists in my class, they think they can pull everything off without songwriters opinion.

Well, cool idea... so we shall have like a "wall of complaints" here ...? laugh.gif

Here's some of mine:

I can't get the girls I want anymore, due to my age and that I look even older than i am... sad.gif

I can't get into the "Swedish Idol 2010" for the same reason....

It doesn't sound like SRV or Hendrix when I play, rather some undescribable noise.

I have no wife or dog I can blame for everything!

I am going to die, and will just be remembered for writing stupid things in the GMC-forum !!!!

I just came back from a concert and I must say I am really pissed about those guys who cannot adjust the volume properly. The louder the better is just the best way to throw your fan off to the bar...

Or perhaps I am getting too old and cannot sustain that kind of concert anymore...

I've been playing for years, and still, I can't do a proper pull-off, my vibrato sucks: I spent 2 hours recording the easiest solo and it's full of problems. Those last few months I spent a lot of my free time playing guitar... for what? I wonder... I should spend my time on something for which I'm more talented.

Besides, my gf complained because I was playing louder than usual: weekend is the only time of the week I can play a little louder (otherwise I come back home at night and I don't want to bother the neighbours).

Also I'd like to live somewhere else but time passes, new constraints come and nothing change sad.gif

I am lazy with my guitar playing and because of that I progress very slow.

I hate to listen to people chomping while chewing their food.

And well I'm tired right now, but I would like to sleep and I got nothing else to do so maybe I'm not complaining about it.

And I think this topic is pointless. smile.gif

Well that's something to be remembered for at least biggrin.gif Whatever you write, someone somewhere will be amused, enlightened or inspired by something you write at one time or another. That's a good thing to be remembered for, but I feel it is now my time to add to the ineffectual of the forum posting world.

So. Cue angry face mad.gif

Anyhoo - this thread. Hmm, it's just too tempting for me and I'm going to give in and begin my little strop, my small moment of teenage "but it's so unfair..booo..nobody cares, nobody understands" nonsense.

Feel free, at this moment, to skip onto the next post or peruse a more meaningful topic of conversation; the remainder shall be the venting of mine spleeny spleen.

So without further ado - ARGH!! How long can one survive without playing a single note on the guitar? Some - Nay, in fact, the majority of folks seem to accomplish this feat quite well, for the entirety of their lives. However, I do not seem to fair so well. My guitars were packed away in July to stop myself from becoming distracted from my work. As some of you may recall I had to begin writing my thesis and I decided that in order to accomplish this within a reasonable time frame and with a logical coherency, I would be need to submerge my whole existence into the work that I needed to do.
This may seem a little extreme but it is how I work best - all or nothing, and I've never been very good at the nothing part.

Knowing how I very easily loose track of time when I play music, it is a luxury that I cannot afford. Five minutes twiddling or ten minutes of scales and arpeggios here and there throughout the day just does not work. I'll give you an example. The piano was my first love and due to its size and weight, it is not reasonable to put it away in the loft, out of sight temporarily. Nor do I possess a key with which to lock it. So the inevitable occurs whenever I am in the presence of a piano (i.e. at my mother's house when I'm visiting).
The thought "oooh just a few minutes of tinkling the keys won't hurt" pops into my cranial cabinet.

....*tinkle bash tinkle laa di dah..*

...8 hours later I say to myself, "that was splendid. Oh, how peculiar. It appears to have gone dark outside"

I pine for the ability to have the freedom with which I can play music to my heart's content. I loved challenging myself with a new piece, or perfecting a GMC lesson. It felt wonderful to struggle with a technique or a troublesome passage, to tear my hair out and go blue in the face, only for to one day make the break through and overcome the original obstacle; to have truly mastered what I set out to play. This is something that surely everyone here can relate to. So imagine having the possibility of enjoying that experience taken away from you, but not by someone else or by circumstances beyond your control - by your very own self, your own desires and sense of duty or moral obligation.
No, instead of this I chose to follow my ideals of "bettering myself and the world around me" through the pursuit of knowledge. My chosen vocation of scientific research, that is. Although my passion and oft romanticised values still remain, the embers of my enthusiasm have been trodden upon through the sheer exhaustion of having to squeeze so much out of such a short space of time.
On the matter of writing itself, it is such a singular experience and, at times, I find it so demoralising. A lot of the time it feels as though the process of writing about my work is more a way of affirming that I know nothing. Truly nothing.
The more I learn, the more I realise I don't know.
That statement could be applied to so many areas of my life, as it would seem to me. For all the structuring and all the organisation and diligence I apply to my efforts, I am greeted with a ten fold complication. No spanner in the works - rather a whole toolbox!
Urgh. I've laboured this account too much so I'll end with a quote which I've used to bring a little light to my daily drudge and the real purpose of what I do


"It takes just as much effort to make a toilet seat as it does a castle window; only the view is different"

My pet peeve.. Toyota Prius's.. mad.gif

Seems people buy them to save the enviroment.. however every time I run across one its in the fast lane on the freeway trying to go fast.. inevitably blocking the way of my V8 powered gas guzzlers tongue.gif . If I were a cop I would ticket those things non stop.

I get pissed off at the people who shake their head and give me that smile that lets me know that they think I am an idiot for playing the guitar all the time. Funny thing is they are usually the same people that are obsessed with watching TV and they plan their whole evening and weekend around what shows they are going to watch!

You'll regret you posted this thread man biggrin.gif

Ok here we go,

I am 27 years old. That makes me angry biggrin.gif

I am 27 years old and I don't have a 7/24 job.

I am 27 years old and I don't wanna have a 7/24 job.

I am 27 years old and I still play silly music that I don't like a bit in various clubs, where I gain a lot of money out of my grasp, because all we gain goes to our album production, that is about a $50.000 for about 9 months. So I work, I gain a lot but I still dont have a penny in my pocket.

I am 27 years old and my metabolic speed is not as it was 10 years ago. Days, weeks, months, sessions go by, I consider myself lucky, if I can accomplish three different things in one day. I live an inverted life, I wake up at 16.00 and go to bed at 08.00...

My guitar playing is erratic. I have started to show some progress but I seem to loose my stability.

I am pissed off because this exercise isn't worth a difficulty of 6 but at least 7!
https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...tring-skipping/

I missed David's collabs deadlines because I had lots of concerts back than, I couldn't hold on to my promise!

My ex fiancee, decided that she made a mistake by leaving me, and now tries to win me back, which confuses me as I still love her, but I can't trust her!

I want to go to a music college, actually for that I left my actual college, but nobody encourages me, everyone around here tells that that is really hard. Yeah, sure, I know that is hard but what? I'll try it anyways...

I go regularly to gym, and I hate the fact that when I do workout, my body progresses, and it is frustrating because when I make exercises with guitar, its progress is slower!

The world is litterally is ruled by F E D which is controlled by some few families in an absolute power for about 60 years now, and there is nothing I can do about it as they enslave humankind with entertainment and self centered needs...

We have that video of our bands hit ready, our photoshoots taken, our music ready. But we couldn't release it yet, as we couldn't make an album contract yet!


Basicly those are the things that pisses me off. biggrin.gif
