Hello. I have played for around 1.34 years and I think I'm getting better really fast, but I NEED some suggestions about how good you think I am. Here's a list of some things I can do that I think are pretty good. but not sure.

--I can play the first 10 measures of Stairway to Heaven

--Play Dammit by Blink 182 all the way through

--Play the Rising Force Solo perfeclyt by Malmsteen except for the last two bars

--Play a big acoustic guitar behind head to the song Layla Unplugged (while whistling the vocal part)

--Alternate pick 16th notes at about 183 BPM (not with tremolo picking I assure you)

--Play the song Time Machine by Satriani with only about 6 mistakes in the first half of the song

--Play jingle bells 3 times tempo

--I also know the songs Smoke on the Water, Satisfaction, and like half the Beatles songs with perfection.

--Oh ya, I also like to play multiple part harmonies of Iron Maiden on one guitar by myself, and I've jammed with the guitarist of a local band who is really good and said I would be the next Hendrix.

Ya, so I'm thinking I'm proabably almost to the level of Slash by now and I'm still improving, but what do you all think?

I think thats good. I also think you need to get over yourself...

around 1.34 years?
that's quite an approximation, but yeah you are good but you shouldn't be looking for an ego boost or praise from random strangers half way across the world, just keep practicing and be sure to find yourself a band
#6
Because you have to ask, I say you suck. Only because you asked.
Ohhh...My head hurts...

did anyone find it a bit funny that he used a calculator to find out how long he's been playing? classic

it's also very amusing that you say that you can play the first 10 bars of STH right along with playing 16ths at 183 (little more than 12 nps) - r...i...g...h...t

next hendrix? i don't think he scavenged internet forums -60's-70's- (or anywhere for that matter) in search of ego-boosting compliments to assure that he didn't suck

so no, you're not skilled - comparison doesn't belong anywhere in the field of guitar

Everything you listed just tells me you know how to PLAY the guitar. But, there's more to guitar than playing, its about music, too. Slash didn't get where he is by playing a bunch of tabs, he wrote songs.
#16
id just like to throw my two cents in here.. dude wtf are you doing? honestly, if you thought youd be impressing anyone.. think again. from your little post here you sound like the biggest douche bag ever. you can play layla behind your head!? NO WAY!! christ, if you want to prove yourself, let your playing do the talking and not the other way around. and for the record.. playing blink 182 is nothing to be proud of..

#19

Im the last person here that rips people but Jesus Christ kid you have a lot to learn!
1st, get over yourself, I can gaurantee that you will find no respect with an ego so stop trying to develop one, confidence is good but thats it just look at what happened to Malmsteen.
2nd, if you have to ask how good you are you are not as good as you think!
3rd, Im not doubting you have talent, ill do that when i hear you play, but have you ever thought that people are being polite?
4th, to be a good/great musician you need experience as much as anything else, you dont want **** dripping down your leg in front of hundreds of people!
I could go on but i dont wana be a dick,
keep it up, i wish you all the best but stop looking for praises, if you deserve them you will get them without having to ask!
#22
well judging from the criterea given, and after some basic calculations, you register at about 9.3537 gsn (guitar skillness) if you were to play jingle bells at 8 times tempo youd be at a 9.6, and slash is a 10.9, so basically you're a God in the form of man. is that what you wanted to hear?

Agreed. You are just a little arsehole who probably has never witten a single riff in your life.

Ya, that is one thing I wanted to hear. Thanks, does any one else have a similar rating. It is very helpful.

Actually, this is a joke thread Sorry I could not resist experimenting to see how many posts a thread might get with a title so tempting for flaming after seeing that "How good am I" thread. Hardly 1/2 an hour and this is the 25th or so. I thought some of the things listed were so absurd or stupid that it might look fake.

Sorry for the spam, but at least a few of you might admit this is exactly the type of thread you were looking for to reply to.

Yeah ****ing right. You just don't like the reaction you got for being such a cocky prick so you're trying to sell it off as a joke. Piss off.

The first ten bars of stairway, and the rising force solo are kinda ridiculous, I believe its spam.

This reminded me of "what are my chances" threads on college forums...they both prove the incredibly masochistic nature uf us forum geeks.

Sorry, no. I just created this "29Frets" account to post this joke thread. I wanted to test forum actvity. If this thread were for real I coud have just made another new account and been a "cocky prick" on another identity without passing it as a joke. I just wanted to make sure I didn't offend anyone.

about 8 posts in 10 minutes and a total of 18 in 21 minutes, close to 300 views in about 50 minutes....Threads like this might make nice graphs.

Probably not as it would be a constant 99% lack of life. But thanks for the interest.

Well if it was a joke ha ha and if it was a test you could have posted something good cos all ur doing here is seeing how many people will get pissed at this thread rather than finding out the general forums activity.
#36
Mmmm i think this thread can finally die now.

i think when threads lik this are made we should totally ignore them no matter how much of a faggot the thread maker is and just let these threads die so we can post in more serious threads
maybe so...maybe so young one.
