Your doing better than most proffessional guitarists if you know that many scales and chords, just learn a few more songs by a variety of artists and keep working on writing your own stuff. Have you really only been playing less less than a year? Most people can't play open chords for two years, nevermind scales and songs such as The Trooper and Wasted Years!! I'd say your doing pretty dam well if you really have been playing less than a year.

Thinking you can play something and actually being able to play it are different things...and either way, it doesn't matter about how fast you're progressing. Just stop being self concious and enjoy the guitar. Have fun with it and if you stay dedicated within a couple of years you will be really good.

Just don't worry about it too much.

I've been playing for like 10 years and I don't know all those scales and ****


There just seems to be too many modes, diminished scales, augmented this and that.

I'd never remember it all and it just doesn't seems useful to me so I can't be bothered with it.

I do know the minor scales all the way up the guitar though, as that is very useful to me.

To be honest, I'm sure there are plenty of people who know tons of theory but cannot write music and have no natural ability in it. I would say that as I'm not a theory man.

7 major modes
complete scales c and d

Make sure you are not memorizing more than you have to with scales, because all of the 7 modes can come from just one scale pattern. I wish I knew what all that stuff was when I first started, It would've helped a fuck load but if you want to know how good you are, post a video or a recording in the riffs and recording forum.
