Hmm i would say like the solo to Santeria by Sublime is a good intermediate thing to play...uh being able to play Under the Bridge (and i mean playing it really well) would probably be something intermediate...what bands specifically do you like?

Intermediate guitarists should know some Hendrix, Clapton (Cream, Derek and the Dominoes or solo), some classic rock (Aerosmith, ACDC, Led Zeppelin, RHCP - Under the Bridge and probably some Oasis lead.

Just have a decent repotoir, I'm just listing the above from the sorts of things that come up when me and mates get together to jam.

Bah! I don't think intermediates NEED to learn those songs (although it is good and fun to learn!) But I find it more better off if you learned how to understand the fretboard and theory and all...


With that knowledge, you can jam along WITH your favorite guitarists!


I say learn some Guns n Roses too!


Btw, what do you guys consider expert level in hardrock genre?

in my opinion...that pretty much no one shares...

you can't really say "wow he/she is a really bad/good guitarist"
because...when people play their own music it sounds what they want it to sound like
and nothing else

but...if guitarists play songs from other people and really mess them up...thats a different thing

oh, and i agree on the under the bridge part

I think he means like musically and technically.
Like an intermediate player should have general knowlege of scales and chord progressions and such. And should have mastered alternate picking as such.
#12
well i for myself dont really care much about scales and that stuff

i mean i recognize chords and root notes and all that....and pretty much know the fretboard

but scales...never really bothered to learn them...all i know is a minor and the blues scale...

and i play for almost 2 1/2 years now...

i really think its up to what you play and how you do it

You can't really catagorize people like that man, well, that's how I see it.

Intermediate guitarists should be playing with other people. Whether or not that leads you to learn particular songs (and you tend to learn all the same covers as everyone else) is moot. Play with a couple other guitarists, bass and drums if you cand find them. I'm not sure anything helped me get better than learning with others.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

^ Yeah, thats basicly it (in my opinion). If you can't play with anyone else, you dont got shit. Know some theory so you can jam with others.
