Not sure if this has been done, this is for the little section dedicated to "Guitar skills" on the new UG profiles (on the left of the page), like tapping or tremolo picking, where you can upload an mp3 and get comments!

So tell me if this has been done before and I'll take it down, I just thought it would be nice to get your certain skills rated

So yeah, Mines a finger tapping piece of Joe Satriani's "Midnight". Go!

Dont't put yourself down dude! They were good, and you've done pretty much all of them, which shows you have skills. 9.2.

^ you have no skills on your profile :s

Check out my solo guitar and my sweeping, I just uploaded em. Solo guitar is a little bit from Opeth's Ending Credits

Ashen Spire - My personal metal band.

Let me ask you, does a machine like yourself ever experience fear?

The solo one was very cool, the sweeping one had a few sloppy moments, but it was still good.

8/10

Check out my Classical/String Skipping.

I just realised my Alternate picking and String skipping are just going up and down a scale
#14
EDIT: The string skipping was accurate. As for the classical guitar piece; you're really only using half the capabilities in classical guitar music. Also, try to put melody into the piece. Build you're music off of multiple, but similar ideas, rather than playing random notes within scales.

If you go to my band profile, you can see my guitar work.

But they have to be sarcastic or something... or just messing around.

How was I being an elitist? I was judging his classical guitar work and I gave my opinion. I didn't say "Classical music is far greater than any other music". If I were a Metal musician and I gave an opinion similar to my opinion on his classical piece, however stating the opinion on his string-skipping, I would make a bet that you wouldn't have such a problem with it.

How about you judge some techniques that are actually important?

Although kudos for playing Midnight, it's a great and very unique two-handed tapping piece.

Well, an elitist is the wrong term for me to use. I apologize. Yes, i guess you did give advice. But still, i guess your just a "perfectionist". Oh well. No point in arguing. Apples and oranges...

also, i can't record anything. No means to

You are damn good though when it comes to your classical...high five!


I also consider you a far better guitarist then a shredder, classical is over looked, i would think much more highly of a classical guitarist than a shrdder
