so yea i was reading the thread saying if you can play any solo in front of a crowd what would it be???

and i was thinking why dont you go learn the song and the solo and play it???

eventually you will play it...it just takes time, it might not take like a day or two maybe a month but when you finally know it and you play it you will be amazed at yourself


so to keep this from being a rant do you think that if you put your mind you can do/play anything even if its something like speed metal symphony by cacophony??

(not really speed metal symphony but anything that is difficult to play to you)

Everyone is capable of achieving literally ANYTHING. The only difference, is the amount of time required. Some people will progress quicker, and some slower, but given an infinite amount of time, they would both reach the same point.

i think you actually have to have the skill, like if i can't play something i learn other stuff then come back to it in a couple of months

maybe, i used to think anyone could do anything if they put their mind to it. But then I realised that everyones heads wired differently, and its actually only a few that can really focus with that level of intensity to achive that sort of extreme brilliance.

Anything is possible, there's nothing really stopping you if you want it bad enough.

I agree. Even from an early age, it's apparent. That's what we're learning in our Psych class

Well you won't be able to do everything (like impossible things like divide by zero), but you could achieve a lot if you put your mind to it.

Everyone can do anything that is physically possible, that's not an opinion, it's a fact! The only way though to accomplish something you are not able to do at the moment, is to focus on it hard and, the most important, BELIVE that you can do it.

What if you had sex with a british crocodile?

EDIT: And anyone can do anything that's physically/mentally possible for a human being to do. Just practice, and you will be able to do it eventually. In this case, practise with your guitar, and you WILL be like (or better than ) Satriani, or Vai, or whoever you admire.

So if you stood on top of the Chrysler building, and you really, really wanted to fly, and you jumped off, you're saying that you'd sprout wings and soar away into the sunset?

I don't really like the phrase because it's an exaggeration to an extreme, and as a young boy, I do believe I say a movie with that line in it, and subsequently I jumped off my garage in hopes of flying
Funny words.

You are missing the point mate. As i said in my previous post everyone can do what is PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE to do. Flying is just not in human's nature. I don't think you really belived that I think I can fly

ooh...talents an iffy word. It seems having "talent" or natural ability is to do with co-ordinating and thinking skills etc you develop as a kid. You can be better suited for your instrument by these sort of things. Also due to the way different peoples brains are wired can vary your ability to process music in your head. I recon looking at my progress the wider variety of sounds your exposed to, and the more you practise and stuff, the the more talanted you get though. That sort of talent can be gained. Just my 2 cents.

its not so much if you can put your mind to it, its wether you would be willing to give up life. i could shoot the the pope if i wanted to bad enough, i may die, but i could do it.

That statement is false. You can't do something if you have neither the mental nor physical capacity to do it. Simple as that.
