Absolutely yes

Or Trey and Jerry even. Jake is good, and maybe a great guitarist but he is really sloppy a lot of the time.

Just want to point out how funny it is that we’re all a bunch of jaded vets trying to learn on Greg in the cringe thread

I dunno I hear Jake do stuff that doesn’t mesh with the band all the time and he has his share of flubs.

And the ability to parse out the playing of your biggest influences is something I think most guitarists who reach that level could do.

Id love to find out that greg is the one that started that whole conversation knowing that it was in this thread. That’s a 4D chess move right there

I’m late to the party with the current debate on this thread, but just like the amount of improv being subjective, so is the quality of the improv. I’m less inclined to favor a 20-minute Untzy jam and get more excited about shorter jams that cover more ground and have several lego sections that span multiple genres.

Unfortunately I’m IP banned from Reddit for posting a pic of the mugshots of the Wolverine watchmen dudes that were trying to kidnap the governor or something to the r/conspiracy board with the title “Sick r/conspiracy meet up last night bros” lmaooo.

Fortunately I’m IP banned from Reddit, their UMs page is barely active. This place rules.

Thisssss, so much thissss. Plus, I genuinely feel the band is tighter nowadays. And with a song catalog as big as theirs, they got pack that shit in

Bro we’re miles past that lmao. I understand the irony and I’m fine with it, therefore making me based :sunglasses:

I usually overlook flubs I’m a faded not jaded vet when it comes down to my position on the band these days but I listen to every soundboard and I’ve heard a lot of noticeable flubs and I have a tenth of the ear @Random_Ass has for this stuff. I’ll fluff Umphreys all day here I’m all about padding my show count but the fact of the matter the band is playing reserved and somewhat sloppy right now.

Amount of improv is objective, quality is subjective. I was just zeroing in on amount because of @Gregaforce7’s impression that Charlotte was lacking in quantity of improv.

I care way less about flubs than I do quality and quantity of improv. A show can be sloppy but still entertaining, or solidly performed but boring.

Dog it wasn’t a comment about you nor your enthusiasm. It was a comment about the irony of us idiots cringely attempting to teach you to be jaded when you’re cringely fluffing the shit out of the band. Situationally hilarious

Couldn’t have happened in a better thread
