I really can't judge a person on a couple of songs that are VERY similar, how much theory do you know, whats your song writing skills, do you know more songs, and are you sloppy? Also a video of you improvising would judge skill the best.

Just because you say you can play someone's songs doesn't make you good. You need to expand your horizon and look at more types of music, then to start composing and playing your own music based on your own style.

I've seen a guy play For The Love of God perfectly... and then later on not be able to improv worth a crap over a simple progression. I consider this guy a crappy guitar player, regardless of his ability to copy.

ok i forgot to mention that yeah i can write my own stuff nice, and yeah when i improvize it comes out really good (riffs only...solos....nooo)

so anyways, anybody know any good beginner solos?

That is one of the worst FAILs I've seen someone say lately.

You CAN'T have the speed if you DON'T have the accuracy. SPEED is a BYPRODUCT of ACCURACY!!!

Practice doing more improvising, writing and theory to improve And don't go around with the mentality that playing Slayer songs makes you a good guitarist they're basically all:

-----------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
------------------------6-7-8--------------------
-000-000--000--000--------------------------------
or something


EDIT: Lol, eXperiment is right as well

Imo what makes someone a good guitar player, is not how well they play other peoples songs, but how well they can create their own songs,
#19
Brilliant, you can play notes. That's the baby step.


Now make them sound good.


A good player will make even a simple phrase sound amazing. The rhythm, groove and feel of a piece of music is what makes it great.

You do know that to be a good guitarist you have to be good at Rhythm and Lead guitar. You can't just expect to learn a few solos and be amazing, up until last year I was good at playing solos but once I played in a band as a Rhythm guitarist I was terrible but now that I got my Rhythm sorted out my solos sound good cause I can through some Rhythm in. Also work on your feel when you're playing a solo cause could you imagine like an Eric Clapton or Slash solo without vibrato.

If you wanna get good, you need to learn some Malmsteen because everyone knows he's the best guitar player EVER since he can play classical music on the guitar.
