I went to GC for a bit, half hour or so just to see whats new and play a few guitars. Some kid maybe 13,14 asked me if I could tune a Epiphone SG for him since he didn't have his tuner, so I said sure no problem man. He started playing the intro to crazy train, all wrong, and his dad said to him " Just give up, your playing is nothing special, noisemaker ". So I butted in and showed the kid how to play it right, and also played the solo for him and what not, looked like I made his day. Then again his dad said " You will never be as good as this guy right here, lets go, waste of time and money, I have things todo and a poker game tonight ". So that then and there pissed me off. I told his son to keep playing the intro slow then pick up the pace, and pulled the dad aside and told him to shut the **** up. I told him he is a piece of shit and should be encouraging his son to play, if it sounds bad, then tell him its good so he keeps his self confidence and keeps playing and getting better, and its about fun. I told him if I see if ever talking to his son again like that I would kick his ass and he would have some problems. He appologized (probley because im a hair under 6"3, and 250 lbs) and in shape. He said sorry to his son and said he had a bad day and then he bought the kid the Epi and a small Marshall to replace his Squier. The kid thanked me and looked like it was the greatest thing that happened to him. I mean you can dislike certain music, guitars ect but to bash a young kids playing, your own kids playing is just disgusting. Im 21, 22 at the end of the year, I was lucky to have a very musicial family, music freaks, everyone plays something, my parents seen everybody, always encouraged us to play, ect. I hate scum parents.
