I listened and watched myself play guitar after 8 years and holy hell do I have sloppy technique... I can't even tell really what's wrong with my form (I taught myself. Bad teacher...)

I thought it might be nice to have a thread where people could feel free to post up videos of them playing a rendition or two to get some feedback. Or, if you just want to show off a rendition you are proud of, feel free to post! It'd be great confidence boosters IMO.

wouldn't that fall into the "recordings" part of this forum?
i'd consider firing the teacher. try ignoring him, he'll go away.
need more gear and a lot more talent(courtesytuxs)
