Noob Josh is Born

I was trolling Josh’s old channel and found this gem:

I think this must have been the inspiration for Noob Josh that we’ve seen on the new channel. I laughed so hard! :laughing: :rofl: :sweat_smile: I don’t know if I had more fun watching it or Josh had more fun making it. The comments were pretty funny too!

I can’t help it… I really like the sound of playing way too hard.

Curiously I am able to do all the things Josh points out on my new bass! At last I can genuinely claim I have some innate music ability :grin:

@kwt7667 I also crack up with Josh’s humour, even if I’m playing the same vid for the 20th time. I’m surprised he doesn’t get fed up with me. :rofl:
On module 8 and I’ve only sworn at Josh once, sorry about that @JoshFossgreen :innocent:

What? How could you? - tsk, tsk, tsk

The only thing I always do is the following dialogue:
Josh: “If you want you can try the muting for this tune.”
Me turning to girlfriend: “Tell him I’m already doing that!”
Her: “He’s already doing that.”

It’s stupid, but has become kind of a fun ritual(?) during my lessons.

I never cursed at him, but Module 8 was the most trying. “See you in the slow workout! 1,2,3…” Me: “Whoa! Whoa! That’s crazy fast” (on Your love takes me Higher). Later…“See you in the fast workout!” Me: “Right…”

I had to do that lesson serveral times before I was able to get going. Just be patient…

You make it work. Plucking too hard + immense enthusiasm = still sounds good somehow. :yum:

Geddy Lee does it too, so it’s not like it can never work.

Was it because of Billie Jean?
For me it was Billie Jean.
I’m betting it was Billie Jean.

DAMN YOU, BILLIE JEAN!!!

@eric.kiser sorry but no cursing at BJ. You all had me prewarned about her.
Syncopation is the one that makes me feel like I have two left feet. In my head I hear Noob Josh saying “Please Josh” :rofl:
BJ took 9 runs to complete the slow workout, and I left her as fast as I could. But she is part of my daily practice, just the riff. When I’ve completed the course, she will be my first port of call. I have a circle on my schedule, I’ll be back :rofl: :guitar: :guitar:
