alright so
based on words right now, am i a good guitarist? im gunna post a video tommorow for the first time ever

Theory:
-i know all my modes and im working on playing them in different keys
-i know how to explain and play blues notes, harmonic minor, and pentatonics
-uhh, im bad at sightreading =/
- major and minor stuff, i know

song stuff:
-i can play canon rock, and barely pull off that insane "asian only" sweep, but its sloppy
-metallica solos, but i only play them if i have a wah around, if not i dont bother bc it sounds gay without it
- alot of avenged sevenfold
- im learning some dream theatre too

skills:
i can 3,4,5 string sweep but there not really 100 percent clean
im good at tremolo picking, like maybe doing triplets on one string then going to another, ...string skipping?
EDIT: this is kind of dry, i left out some stuff. i can play good metal improv solos and even some good blues solos, power chords are easy and i havent found a chord transition that took me longer then maybe ten tries to get, so im good at that.

sorry if this gets closed, im being like emotional today.
my girlfriend broke up with me and i was looking at guitar vids and i see kids alot better then me and alot worse then me so i dont know what to think. plus im really pissed off, my first three years i was with this teacher who sucked and i only really started improving with my new teacher the last two years... so i feel i could be amazing if i started right

help pit ( i did put this in the pit right?)

And it's settled. This can be closed now.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Based on this logic of "good", John Lennon sucked.


When will people realise that you can shred til the cows come home and study theory 24/7 but you need a spark/gift and a knack for everything naturally before you can get anywhere.

You seriously can't spell.

Dude, all right, it's like this. I know Hangar 18. Can you tell from those words alone if I'm a good guitarist or not? No, because you've never seen or heard me play it; I might be amazing, I might be absolute shit. "Knowing" =/= "being able."
You're*

Eh, he knew EVERY CHORD. Ever.

Other than that, yeah, he was quite mediocre.
