Hey all, I'm kind of in a learning slump at the moment. I really want constructive criticism to better my guitar playing. I've been playing for a little over 2 years. Ignore the other stuff on the soundcloud. Go ahead and stop after 2:50 on the first one. I already know I lack confidence.

i've heard worse. you shouldn't think of yourself as a crappy player - it might help if you played because you love playing and didn't worry about how good you were or how good you feel you should be.

i always find that trying to play in a style i don't usually play in gets me out of a slump. alternate tunings are the fastest way i know of to do that. try DADGAD and see what you can come up with.

may i ask what kind of guitar that is?

Not bad man...I think you show great potential! It's all about practice...I pretty much practice at least an hour a day....you'll def see improvements.

Here's some more, an original and a cover. It's a cort guitar. I'm using medium elixir strings on it.

Second is the cover.

You see, I play in odd tunings all the time, I use capos all the time. My favorite tuning has to be open E or what ever EBBF#BE is(im guessing open b). I play in Standard D, C#, DADGBD. I play a lot of neil youngs music, along with Rush, Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater... all that stuff. Bluegrass in the mix as well. It's just, I feel like my creativity is at a limit right now, most specifically with my leads. I can do alright with chords, but my leads are -always- bluesy. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
