Internet Demotivation

To answer the OP.

No. Not in the slightest. I learnt to play mostly because I wanted to write songs/music. Seeing someone else regurgitate an existing piece of music holds pretty much zero interest for me.

Also while they are probably all far better players than I am, from what I have seen, I am safe in the knowledge that my room is tidier than their's, and I look after my body better and have a far better dress sense than any of them (well the male ones at least). ;-)

That's what counts!

I'll just ask: does anyone else find all these Youtube superstars demotivating? Perhaps just a little bit?

I think the thing is that when you caually see these, the guys on them are just copying someone else's lines.  Monkey see, monkey do.  I'd much sooner see these guys doing their own stuff rather than pretending to be Flea.

You could argue that they're copying Flea but then you could argue Flea was copying Bootsy.

Props to Davie504 etc. They're having fun, making money and have proved beyond doubt that they're great players with a great ear. My ego is small enough for me to say they would play me under the table.

He's mellowed out in recent years but he has a reputation. Understandable given how he got treated by the rest of the band.

I'm sure he's a lovely guy these days. 

 

I met in in '88 when the last touring FZ band was in meltdown

Although there are other fine players whom I listen to more, to have that technical facility (i enjoy picking as much as fingerstyle) and musical knowledge is my ultimate goal. Let's hope one can self teach to that level of musical ability.

There's no better way to learn than from other musicians. Even rote copying improves your technique, and it's hard to not to improve your understanding of music by doing so.

I'm sure my technique and improvisational skills have come on in leaps and bounds since I've been learning lots of covers.
