I guess so, but i dont judge my technique on if i can do this or that, when i can truly pick up the guitar and make the music i want, thats when i'll be happy and satisfied.

I can play semi-fast, but no where near shredding.

Just be.

Fast, yes. Shred? I wouldnt say so. I can get, oh, 8-10 nps i think, may be wrong. I want to get up to, say, 15nps and i'll be happy.

Let's put it this way, if I posted a vid or recording in this forum to be judged, Freepower would pwn my ass sideways with suggestions. If I posted one on a myspace or spmething like that, a bunch of noobs would be like

I'm not into shredding, but I use it to improve my skills. I'm more of an alternative/pop/punkpost guitarist, Johnny Marr-ish

Everytime I go into the guitar shop and ask for a G-String the shopkeeper always makes that TERRIBLE joke about it not being an underwear shop

So next time I go in I'm gonna ask for a thong

No cause most high schoolers are ignorant and are impressed if you can play a Metallica song sloppily. No offense to you, but that's just sadly how it is.

Forums, duh, it's cool to flame at people here, since they can't kick your ass....

Oh btw, yes I can 'shred', but not how I would like too, I used to play neoclassical but I got sick of it and I'm going to study fusion at the jazz deparment next year at music college, lots of work to get done ( mainly playing wise, I sound to anti-jazz at the moment haha )
