He was probably offended by the "I could teach you something" part. I've
seen this happen in the taijiquan (martial art) community with instructors
who think they know everything there is to know and greet any notion
that there is still a thing or two to learn with affrontery and denial.

I'm hardly a bigshot but you folks on this list have really opened my
eyes about making music with loops.
