Re: This is Kinda Buggin me
1) there will alwase be someone better than you.
2) like people mentioned before (assuming he is a good and decent guy) talk to him, work on being freinds, and be nice to him. It's called diplomacy (spelling)
Plus there is a good quote out there about management that applies here. "A good manager takes all the responsibilty but none of the credit"
think about it...
Don't try to show this guy up, just be humble, tell him he is good, give complements, and be a nice guy. If you're the leader of the section take the responsiblity for the whole section. Make sure everyone knows what's going on, plan some pratices, and put in some effort. Then when you have a concert or are doing well in pratice say "well we have been working hard and everyone here knows their music... " (or something that dosnt' have a "I" or "me" in it. If you do things like that along with playing well I would think you will keep your job.
