What the hell should I compare to? I'm definitly not a great guitarist, not even close. That I'm sure of. I would say 3 or 4 but that will not mean the same to you as it does to me.

So then if you were compared to Paul Gilbert or somebody you'd be -10

considering myself playing for only 2 years and shredding, tapping and sweeping the **** out of my guitar while on the other side being creative with phrasing and especially composing, lots of people who heard me would say great... sooo, keep on practising !

A lot of music isn't really going anywhere. There are tons of fans in here going 'oh my god, <> is evolving so much and <> is so shit lol!' but tons of it is just recycled material and tired ideas.

I'm a one. But I'm my own biggest critic.
Although I think a blues guitarist that rates himself as anything beyond a 1 isn't humble enough for the blues.

I know I will never be another Gilbert or Vai...just reality, some people just have exceptional talent, I classify that as a 10.

So you want every blues guitarist to always have low self-esteem and confidence in technical ability? There's a difference between saying you're the most godawful guitarist in the world and putting yourself down all the time than being humble as Gilbert.

I rate myself as a 2 or 3.

Perhaps I exaggerated. Certainly those such as Gary Moore and Joe Bonamassa can see themselves as decent guitarists. I mean people like BB King and Seasick Steve, who see themselves as blues musicians as opposed to blues guitarists.

I put myself at 6. But there's not standards to what an average guitarist is, so this poll is meaningless.

Oh will you shut up.


I swear users like you annoy the hell out of me. If you don't like the poll then you can see yourself out.

This is an obnoxious thread. Do you really need to assign a number to yourself in order to feel confident as a guitarist?

Why are you in this obnoxious thread in the first place?


Anyways, this is just to review yourself and share though about your own playing. Don't be an asshole, please.

Looks like someone doesn't really know what 'intermediate' means.

I'd say 3 or a 4 for me. I can play well enough to ammuse myself, but I spend more time reading about how guitars are made and the history and the differences between models and all that than I do practising. I'd like to think I'd be a good guitar tech because I can play well enough to stress test a guitar and I'm proud of my knowledge of it as an instrument, but in terms of being a player myself, I doubt I'll ever be better than the average rhythm player.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

For the time I've been playing, 9/10. I've been playing since May and I've gotten pretty good for the time.
Compared to other guitarists (Good ones), probably 2 or 3.
