Hi, I have been playing guitar for a month and a half now. This is all the stuff I have learned so far. I was just wondering if this is alright, or could I have learned more in this time period? I don't take lessons and am self taught. Tell me what you think, Thanks,

Thanks for the opinions guys. I practice about 20+ hours a week, so thats why I am wondering if what I have learned is good enough for my amount of practice time.

It really doesn't matter how long you've been playing... more practice time = better player in most cases. It seems like you are making good use of your practice time... just keep challenging yourself and you'll keep getting better.

Hmmm... It's not bad...But can you play the entire song...or are you playing it actually nicely, and not...crappily?



I can play all of the songs almost thoroughly. I record myself so I know if it sounds bad and then I can fix it from there. I'd say they all sound good when I play it.

I've been playing a year and a bit... taught myself. Haven't a clue about most of that, you're doing well!
