4.5 is pretty legit, I was at 4.1 when I was playing a lot, 4.5 is comfortably in the top 1% which is good by any reasonable measure. :)

I think I've spent less than that on MTG and Dota2 combined! What's legend mean functionally? Like top 2% of active players or such?

Hi! I've been doing lots of exams and Path of Exile, so guitar foruming has been much neglected. How are you guys doing?

Wow, this predates the Guitar Techniques forum!

To be honest, it's nice you tried to put your post in the right place but Electric Guitar might be a better home for this sort of thing now. :)

Times have changed I guess. People just prefer youtube or whatever to the whole forum thing. Maybe the more specialist forums are doing better, I have no idea. :S

Didn't like it much till the keys kicked in, then enjoyed it a bit. Nothing wrong with it but nothing I found interesting either. YMMV!

Yes, but also your post didn't really contain anything for discussion - if you just want to share a scale diagram, lessons is the place for it. :)

There's nothing *wrong* with it, it's just off-topic and not particularly useful. Remember, the minor pentatonic is not a "guitar technique" - it's a scale. Also, the forums are generally for...

What *most* people do is hit the A with an upstroke and then a D with the downstroke.

I think Steve Vai occasionally does it the other way, I haven't heard of anyone else.

Arpeggio picking is hard!

It's okay to have the hand on the guitar as long as you're not exerting pressure on it. In your case it's muting the lower strings so I'm afraid you'll just have to move...

It's reallllllllly hard, the reason being that the extensors (muscles that "open" the hand) are really weak compared to the tensors. If you're still "pressing" at all you'll be fighting against that,...

Almost anything can be refingered, if you're having trouble consider moving it. eg, from 10th fret low E to 5th fret A. :)
