no i'm not.I've actually dealt with things on other sites like people cutting me down because "you play too fast".And even going as far to say as"it sucks"which is frustrating when you put in all that work into things...

At first I watched the vid and I thought "what's this guy on about", but then I watched again and saw the patterns being employed.

Obviously they're Malmsteen type runs happening, and you may be receiving the same sorts of criticism that he has. He only plays fast, and he plays the same riffs over and over again. Perhaps that's your problem? Can you play any other styles? Do you ever play slow? etc.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

If I have any criticism of your stuff on that page it's that you go out of your way to play as fast as you can in any situation. There's also a distinct lack of recurring themes in the pieces too, which makes them lack progression.

You'll just have to focus now on being a musician, rather than a guitarist, if you catch my drift.
