Premonition by Joe Satriani. I learned a bunch of songs before that, but there was always a small part that was just out of my level, or just felt strange. Premonition at that point was consistently...

What is "enough"?

Arbitrary expectations are just that: arbitrary. Just relax, enjoy the ride and let it all come naturally.

It doesn't. That's why I say I agree to an extent, in that it's a little superfluous the way they are used, but it still has its place.

I think we need to define what is "play" in your opinion. Does it mean how we think as a musician, or literally how we physically play?

I'm going to assume you're referring to the latter.

To some extent I have to agree. Most metal bands use the extra strings just for the djentz and br00t4lz.

Alternate picking is much stricter than economy picking, so you will know if you can't keep up when your right hand simply can't pick fast enough. With...

Wait. Are the pass filters reversed on the Pod? You get the effect of a high pass filter by using a low pass filter in the amp settings. I never noticed that.

In any case, get a Pod. You're not...

My maximum so far is 200-300 plays of Daughtry and David Cook's first album. Kinda grew out of them but I still like listening to them every now and then.
