Today I was playing some guitar, chilling out, having a good time, when my doorbell rings. I go to the door, answer, there's a dude there, clearly nervous and angry, then spouts nonsense about how my guitar amp is reverberating through the whole building.
But I wasn't playing too loud, I've played louder in the past to no complaints, even recently. He also spouted off a bunch of nonsense about it all, how the bass was coming through incredibly loud. I doubt that was the case, particularly as I had a rhythm part that was mid and treble focused and I was playing lead and have my pedal and EQ mainly set to emphasise the parts I'm playing.
All in all it riled me up and got under my skin. I told him sure I'd turn it down, but the only experience I have with this person is that they're demanding and every interaction has made me feel like they believe they're superior to me. The way I was talked to was demeaning and designed to belittle me, and I didn't much care for it.
Never the less I complied and turned my amp down, then off, as I needed to go and buy some apples. The fun of playing guitar was completely negated for the evening, and I'm still rather angry about the way I was treated. I'd welcome a conversation to talk about it, but clearly this person was in no mood to talk fairly about anything, and I shouldn't have let them 'win' that encounter.
Oh well, I'm mostly clear of feeling angry now, I'll still play, I don't much care for what ever arbitrary feelings they have on any given day, if it's a persistent problem that had been raised with me I'd understand, but that's not how it was communicated.
Have an excellent day! You're all my favourites!
