now, can anyone tell me , after playing for 2 years what should be my level,
is there any method by which i can keep track of my progress.

need urgent help from the guitar lords .

Nope. There are no metrics by which you can measure progress at all, the closest you can do is look at things you couldn't do that you can do now and be happy about that but that isn't a measure because there's no way of saying "Well I can do this so I can now do anything below this".

There are no "levels", equally there's no such thing as should when it comes to learning the guitar.

Everyone learns at different speeds, and what other people have or haven't donw has absolutely no influence on your own progress.

If you want an honest appraisal of your current abilities then record yourself and post it for others to critique.

Judging by your time on UG, your detailed description of your ability & wording of your question, I'd say you were most likely a 7 on the guitar ability scale.

Can you play Erotic Cakes by Guthrie Govan? Fairly technical, tricky and difficult to nail timing wise, without being overly "shreddy". It's a good test of your musical ear, as well as your technique.

If you can play that (the main riff thats all), you're coming along well. But being honest there is no bar of measurement, everyone learns at a different pace and everyone learns different things along that time scale. Some people are very fast to pick up on improving their musical ear, and often improve better on intonation/bending/vibrato as a result but may struggle on fast or overly technical or complex things, while others will be able to play at 20000000 notes per second but will still need to work on intonation and bending, and often lack rhythm skills passed a basic level.

In both cases more time, practice and experience will even out these differences in direction to a certain degree.

Well that's your call but without seeing you play we can't tell you what you need to work on.
