I feel like an idiot as a 13 year-old saying this to a 70-year old, but he doesn’t need to learn to respect his elders – you need to learn to respect those younger than you. I’m sorry; ‘you may as well forget chicken pickin’, it will be way above your abilities’? I’m very sorry, but who the hell are you to tell him to just stop learning and practising? I apologise for this and again, I feel like an idiot saying this to somebody 57 years older than me, but seriously. Learn some respect and manners or leave the forum. To be honest, I’m beginning to doubt that you’re even a guitarist; with that sort of impatience and attitude, you would never have been able to learn at all.
