I know everyone progresses at different speeds and I am aware this type of question bothers some people. I apologize in advance.

I have been playing for 6 months (almost) and play everyday. The songs i have learned are:
Stairway(all the way through)
Comfortably Numb(all the way through)
Sweet Child o Mine(Solos)
Always with me always with you(all the way through)
Whole Lotta Love all the way though
Under the Bridge
Fer elise
Minuet in G
And some other Beginner songs i cant think of
I am working on classical gas

Other than songs:
Pentatonic all over the kneck
Under Stand Modes
Can play modes
Under stand and can play the major scale all over the kneck.

I know All my major minor dominant (7th, 6th, 9th, 7flat5,) chords

and can create chord progressions and play modes over them...

How do i compare to others? am i good or bad for the time i played and please be honest

You are all correct i have no recording. Can someone tell me how to put and audacity file on the internet?
I dont have a teacher
I played violin till i was like10 then quit cuz my teacher died and i wasnt comfortable with anyone else... im 15 now.

We can't really answer you. For all we know you could be awful at playing those songs, or brilliant.

I remember thinking I was amazing because of all the songs I could play when I was just learning. Now I know how awfully sloppy I was and how clean my playing is now.

I was still only playing power chords on the three thickest strings at 6 months XD

Damn good for six months. You must have some good self discipline, and theory is something that a lot of casual players won't touch with a ten foot stick. Keep it up.

Now your next step is how to spell and and grasp the concept of pronouns.


But seriously, I agree with the guys above, we really can't tell if you're good or not based on what you say you can play. You could either be playing dumbed down versions of all of these (Fur Elise by example is fairly easy if you play only the melody with no harmony or chord's below) or you could be playing really sloppy (I thought i was good when i first learned Sweet Child O' Mine, but my tone was god awful and i was muting and letting strings ring open, it was a mess). If you can play these clean and relatively well to your ears then i'm impressed. Even if you can't it's impressive you have such a good grasp on theory already, do you play other instruments?

If you can play them clean, you're better than me and I've been playing for 2 years.

You have no recordings up so we can't possibly make any judgements. From what you've described you could be anything from the next Hendrix to a tone deaf kid who missed every other note and sounds terrible.

Also, I lol'ed at you listing "Minuet in G" and expecting us to know what piece you're talking about.

Yeah... telling people to fuck off then saying you're better is not a good way to get advice on things.
#18
Really? What math are you in?

Edit: And you're fifteen, you should know how to spell "neck" and "understand".

LOL

I severely doubt you can play any of those songs remotely cleanly. You expect us to believe after 6 months you can play Always with Me, Always with you? No need to lie mate

I'm more suspicious of Comfortably Numb. I bet the bends are appalling, and the faster descending parts.

I still want to know what math this kid is in. Tell me before I get my knome to stab you with his gnife.

I've seen a post exactly like this before. I smell copypasta.

This guy seems legit. He's both a pioneer of guitar and an accomplished mathematitian. I also have a feeling that, in a fight, he could break all of our knecks.

Well, all I can say is... Better luck kneckst time!

EDIT: Beaten to it

Still, after conkneckting the dots, I think it's safe to say that you're over confident in your abilities.

How can you not know how to spell neck? My seven year old brother can spell that

And how do you know you're better at maths? You might be as crap at that as you are at spelling.

Shame, it's knot often someone so good at guitar and maths gets knoticed and recognised for what they are.

I agree.

I doubt we will ever find anyone who can hit so many knotes and add so many knumbers

The probability of TS actually being able to play these songs clean is e^pi*i.

...And here come the math jokes...

I bet he can play 999 dx/dy of these songs cleanly.

Edit: Confused derivative with integral, it's been a while.
