The way you act makes you a prick. That and the fact that you are a prick. Prick.

You were the one that took me wrong. I was simply trying to point out that it's not as hard to do as it looks and that I can do it as well. Mentioning I can do it is a way of showing how easy it is to do because heck...even I can do it.

@1234
Really? Exactly what makes me a prick? The fact that I said he did a great job or the fact that I said any professional musician could do it? They are both true statements.

Actually, it fits in perfectly with:
Adjective
Intended or used to deceive or mystify, or to create an illusion.
-----
He is giving the illusion that he is doing something really difficult when it's just a simple parlour trick.

All I can say is, I AM qualified to judge the difficulty of this trick and you clearly are not. If a car mechanic tells you your car is broken, only a dumb ass would tell him it's not.

I just thought the kid had talent (playing two instruments at once) and I liked the "sound" of the song. Kinda reminded me of Cage The Elephant or The Black Keys "sound". I submitted it with the best title I could think of to get people to look at it, thus getting him some views hopefully.
Definition of the word trick:
Noun
A cunning or skillful act or scheme intended to deceive or outwit someone.
Verb
Deceive or outwit (someone) by being cunning or skillful.
Adjective
Intended or used to deceive or mystify, or to create an illusion.
Synonyms
noun. ruse - artifice - dodge - wile - prank - gimmick
verb. cheat - deceive - swindle - dupe - delude - beguile
I still say this not a trick. It is practise and talent. Plus it is an original song that he wrote. 410,911 YouTube views and counting.

patchouly I don't comment on here a lot but after reading back through the comments you do come off like you are putting down the musician in the video. You come off a little arrogant too.

The video on youtube is not pushing the fact that he plays two instruments it's just him trying to get recognition for his song. I am willing to bet Electriceye only stated the playing of the two instruments in the title as a way to catch attention and get views. Music videos usually do not do well on here. I am not sure about that, so electric would have to confirm.

Just my two cents. Carry on.

Jake Justus and pactchouly endorse this product:




Patch, in your first statement you said,"Don't get me wrong" knowing full well someone could and probably would take what you were saying as "wrong". It really looked like you wanted to put down the kid and boast about yourself..... and you did.

"patchouly, your assessment here is right on the money. There is no doubt that this kid has talent, but there's not as much happening in this video as many would think. Practically every guitarist who's played in a band has sat behind his drummer's kit and tried something similar.

Having said that, I've got to admit that this kid has worked on it. He's kicked it up a notch."

Thank you!

Yes, he certainly has mastered it!

...and the reason I had to tell my life's story is to explain why I am qualified to make that call. The reason I find it easy to do is because I am a professional. I'm not putting the guy down at all. Just explaining that it is a trick.

@12chars, Like I said, I don't teach. I USED to teach to pay the bills when I came off the road.

The point I'm trying to make is, this is a party trick. Any professional musician can do it. I'm not sure why you and ElectricEye are so pissed off by that. If you were a professional magician and you did a cool trick, everyone in the audience would be stunned but you would know how it's done and, while you appreciate the talent involved, it's not as impressive.

I'm not sure why that is so hard to understand or why it make the two of you so pissed off...

patchouly there is only one person on this thread claiming to be a 'pro' and that is you. Over and over and over again. You have also stated you are an admin on that 'guitars r us' site what 2 or 3 times now. Maybe you should pay IAB for advertising. We get it.

PATCHOULY IS A PRO. PATCHOULY IS AN ADMIN ON AN GUITAR SITE. PATCHOULY THINKS THIS KID JUST DOES TRICKS CAUSE TRICKS ARE FOR KIDS.

What I find funny is by putting down his talent, which since he has the same ability as you, means you are putting down your own talent as well.

Why not just say you like it or dislike it and quit blowing your own horn? I could write a book on the career of Patchouly and I don't even know you.

That was actually rather good.

Reminded me of the White Stripes.

And for the record, I don't teach music anymore. After being on the road for so long, I missed stability. I missed not having a home and a family. I decided to quit the band and come off the road. When I did, I taught at a local music school and did studio work for a local studio. That covered my bills and rent until I got a career. Now I do admin for Guitar Player Magazine, run my own forums, operate a web server, do computer work and record from home for fun.

I've had a VERY successful career as a musician and I got to travel across the country and meet thousands of cool people.

...

So, if you find that you could not do what the guy in the video did, maybe it's because you haven't had enough experience yet. Maybe you aren't a pro?

Holy crap, ElectricEye, what's with the spite? I made it as far as a professional, as I wanted to. I had no aspirations of becoming a rock star; in fact, I turned down a pro gig to remain in the band I was in. I most certainly didn't "Do it wrong". We were the biggest draw in the clubs we played and often had lineups outside. Overnight, I was able to go from a crappy little bar to a stadium with 2000 people in it, after joining that band.

I'm sorry that you never broke out of the "weekend warrior" phase. There is a HUGE difference between a weekend warrior and what I did. I played six nights a week for seven years. Do you realize how much playing that is? We'd set up on Sunday, play Monday to Saturday and then tear down Saturday night. Sunday morning we'd drive to the next town and set up again. After a while, it all becomes second nature.

I played in a few bands as a teenager...I actually moved to Seattle, WA in the late 80's to join a startup grudge band! I have played guitar, bass, piano and harmonica all my life and yet I find what this kid does to be amazing. I think he is the perfect "professional" musician...and unlike your profile, he has a chance to actually make it big, not end up teaching music. Sorry for your years of doing it wrong, since you didn't have YouTube. This kid has close to half a million views in three days on YouTube...he is going somewhere with his "trick".
I say he has talent and drive. He recorded it in his bedroom for fun and not a fancy studio, kinda like you do now. I like that part even more.

I should also add that I'm not trying to say this was something I could have just sat down and done. I spent 3 years, when I was a teenager in weekend bar bands. After that I went on the road and played six nights a week for seven years. When I came off the road and did studio work for two years and then did another three years as a music teacher. Now I record from home for fun and do admin work for Guitar Player Magazine to keep "in the loop". I am able to do this "trick" because of the way my brain is trained to think. The way all professional musicians are trained to think.

ElectricEye:
"Ok..this is not a trick."
-----

I mean trick the same way playing a guitar behind your back is a trick. The guy does a great job of it and I think the song sounds great, but any professional musician should be bale to to do the same thing with a very small amount of practice.

Look, I'm not trying to put the guy down. It sounds great and he does an amazing job of it. All I'm saying is, it's impressive to non-musicians, but to most professional musicians, we know how it's done.

...Maybe that's why I chose the word "trick". It sort of feels like a magician thing and we are in on how it's done. For us it's "Easier than it looks".

Ok..this is not a trick. This kid has talent. He plays a song that he wrote, on two different instruments. It is a simple song, but an amazing performance of it. I don't how anyone could call this a trick. It is practice and talent...simple as that. Gary Lee Weinrib("Rush") plays Bass guitar, Sings lead vocals and plays Keyboards at the same time...is that a trick? I don't think so.

Let me put it this way. If I played that song on guitar, I might tap my foot while playing. Does it matter if there is a kick drum pedal under it? Or, instead of strumming up and down with a pick, I'm moving a drumstick up and down? My point is, it's the same amount of brain power. Does that make sense?

@12chars, I don't currently own a drum set and when I used to do the trick (mainly back when I was doing studio work), I used to use the set that was in the studio. It really isn't a hard trick to do. I used to play bass, sing and work the lights with a foot controller all at the same time when I was on the road. You get used to doing different things with each appendage.

To be honest, my point wasn't that "I'm amazing!" and now there is some need for me to prove it. My point was, that guy is doing something that most professional musicians could do. He's doing a good job of it, but it is just a trick.
