hm

I just saw your tricks. You are right u get low ratings. Only thing i can think of why, is the sound quality. Sound is a bit low.. and a bit buzzing. (only when u not play) U use singel coil??

Yes.. and play slow first than speed up.. remember what the trick is for.

first of all like i said before dont use cap lock all the time..

the ratings of the tricks dont matter that much..
i mean, its not guitarwar/battle here.. so why do you care so much about the rating? as long as someone uses the trick and learns something you shouldnt worry about the rating he gives to your trick

It is not I who am crazy.

i posted that thread before you let me kindly in on the
caps crap......

and if the ratings dont matter what heck are they there for?
its no contest but i do post stuff to see where im at
in my playing....i just think REAL feedback should be considerd.......

and why would some one learn a piece they dont care for
in the first place?
jam it up!!!

There are people who don't think Jimi Hendrix or Eddie Van Halen are all that special. These are usualy younger players who were not around at the time, so they don't apreciate just how ground-breaking these pioneers were.

You may be suffering from the same syndrome on a smaller scale. Once someone has learned something, it doesn't seem so hard any more.

Some people may not try hard enough, or repeatedly enough one of your tricks. Therefore; they'll think it's dumb and give it a low rating. You really shouldn't let it get you down, because your stuff is good.

I see you've enabled the email option on your profile, so if you want comments from the people who rate your tricks, why not say 'mail me with comments' after your tricks?

I rate tricks on my own little scale:

Sound Quality
1 Accuracy of TAB
2 If your clip matches your TAB
3 Explanation of how you play it (finger position..etc)
4 Application (if it's clearly explained what type of application you would put the lick in....i.e. exercise, blues turnaround, etc.

I can't remember if I've listened to yours or not, but I'll be sure to take a listen.
