Don't even argue with him. He doesn't get it.
He only cares about techniques and how many practice patterns you can shove into a song. The failure of all people who think as Jagov does: They don't understand that technique is a means to an end. The whole is completely lost in search for the most complex and "interesting" (See: technical, poly rhythms, arpeggios, minor 8ths etc. etc.) parts. Which is why 99% of these modern techy bands fail so hard. You can maybe remember 2-3 ideas per song and find yourself more anticipating those moments than engaging in the music.
Honestly, I don't even understand why he listens to recorded artists at all. For that matter, why do the faceless and Obscura even record anything. There's plenty of instructional videos out there which will more than suffice. It's 2012, with the advancements in video editing, you can cut out the talk and mesh all the playing into one stream of nonsense.
