...you're good. Now shut up.

But how are we ranking you as an artist? Have you written some masterpiece? This is more like ranking you as a guitar player.

what u can play doesnt mean shit really

1. how clean you play everything
2. how fast you can learn an intermediate song
3. how well you can improvise
4. your knowledge in theory
5. your ability to write a song with originality

also the ability to play distorted licks without distortion with no difference is also a nice way to tell how good you really are

and that is how i measure how good someone is

Don't. Ever.

Sounds like you're doing decent for a beginner. Doesn't sound too great, though for a 13 year old it's not bad, and you'll break a barrier in a few years and realize portrayed skill "level" doesn't matter so much.

Edit: Oh wait, as an artist? Zero, reproduction has no artistic value attatched to it, it's regurtitation; Vomit. Being an artist requires creativity.

OK. This has nothing to do with how good you are as an artist, just guitar.

exactly.

being an artist is more than just do rapid two handed tapping, tremelo picking, and playing guitar solos in certain songs (note for note which i don't understand how people can't just improvise?).

jimi hendrix was an artist. elton john is an artist. paul mccartney is an artist.

you don't have to pick at 200 bpm just to show artistic ability.

~i cant make macaroni and cheese

~i cant play stuff like yngwie malmsteen

~i cant do 10 pushups

~i cant play blitzkrieg

~ i cant play the, through the fire and flames sol
#22
Hey kid I can't play freebird so I guess you're better than me yet I am 19.

But can you play other instruments besides the guitar. For say the Cello, piano, and maybe the bass?
#23
you don't need to play super fast to be an artist just listen to bob dylan, he doesn't shred, but he writes amazing songs

if you're a true artist, you don't give a fuck if people think you're suck or don't

Dont take it so hard chaz, you're good for a 13yr. old. Better then Me I guess

EH, i'll go easier on you. Just learn that the pit is like the seedy neighborhood on the outskirts of town. Don't go there unless you know what your doing, you want to score drugs, or you have an overwhelming desire to get shot.
#30
honestly mate, why do you give two flying ****s how good people think you are, thats not what guitars about. Its not for showing off, its meant to be played not wanked, now trot on
#31
The information you gave us makes you about as much of an artist as a piece of poo.


Now guitarist, that's a different matter. You're probably fairly good, but technical skills are by no means a substitute for creativity.

green liquid that came out of the asshole of a dead baby after jumping on it

Beathoven wrote a symphony when he was 8. You're poorly playing things other people made at the age of 13.
