how can u track ur musical progress. as in how do you know when your at a certain level with your playing?

best suggestions for beginners is to get a cheap tape deck and record yourself every couple of weeks. at the end of 6 months/a year listen back to your first tapes then listen to your most current tapes. you WILL hear the difference. also, the tape doesn't lie. if you play it back and it sounds terrible its because you played it terrible. don't sweat it though, thats how you find out what you need to work on.

When you can play a piece of music that you've been working on and make it sound good..... you've leveled up.

not yet mentioned... when you personally feel like you made improvement and you can hear a difference in your own playing. Although thats not necessarily "tracking" your progress so to speak. But it will happen, and you will notice when it does, it just takes time.

ok what i have noticed is that i play and strum some chord progressions really well but what i cant do is solo. so i wonder if being able to play chords is a good enough step from novice to intermediate

i only need 10 more xp

i want to agree with your statement, the only problem is when you say "make it sound good" as we all know "good" is relative. i'd just say if you can make it sound better than you did before.

Is not better also relative?? :p

Well okay, if you want get pedantic, I can agree with that. That's obviously what I was saying anyway.
