Have you ever got the feeling that what people tell you doesn't seem like what it is? My friends and peers are always telling me that I'm a great guitar player, but I always think that they exagerate, and i guess i'm modest about my playing abilities. i never beleive when people sya im a good guitarist, i always think i suck. So could i be a good guitarist and just not know it? or am i actually really ****? or do i have a self esteem problem? lol

you know, some kind of video, or a mp3 file, or something might help just help us determine that.

you could be good in their eyes since they dont play guitar (?)
but in a good guitarists eyes you could be just a beginner still but have yet to achieve full potential

If you're comparing yourself to other guitarists, you might not feel that you're very good. But to the uninitiated who can't play an Em chord, you may seem really good.

Or they might just be trying to encourage you.

your song sounded pretty sweet....

Also, there are a lot of non players that compare it to their own playing ability, which obviously makes you look totally godly
#15
i get the same thing,from random people at guitar center when im just jamming,or even friends who play guitar,they are always askin me to teach them and saying how good i am.
Im always like are we talkin about the same person here...
#16
yeah but even people i don't know say i'm good. i was sitting on my budies drive way and some lady came up and asked me if i was playing the blues festival. i was like ...no? and even my guitar teacher was jelous of how i got so good in such little time. when i play shows people say i'm one bitching guitarist. people that i have never meet from other bands that i respect say i'm awesome and that i should be in a band. and my friends who i know are amazing guitarist always wonder how i play so good. i just don't understand it!

Your playing was really clear, and I loved your tone.

its odd, i watch a video of a guy shredding, but when i play the same thing, it just doesn't feel like im shredding that hard at all. i've been called an amazing guitarist a couple times before, but that was by people who don't play. get an opinion from someone you think is better then you.

My guitar teacher says I'm one of his top five students, but I just don't really feel like I am.
#23
You're ok. You've got a great tone but your lines (from what I heard on that link, i mean you could miles different from that clip) were fairly unimaginative.
#24
Good is subjective; I'd had ppl I dunno tell me I'm good and others tell me I suck - normally I get caught up in the bad press and get pissed off, I don't think I'm great but I don't think I'm awful.

MVL.
#25
to me it maybe sounds like you just know a bunch of shred licks and are good at linking them together.. instead of consciously writing music.

how good are you at theory and playing in different styles?

oh.. from what i heard you sound good.. and friends who dont play guitar might think your a rock god (*but your not because of what i said above*maybe?)

Really doesn't matter what they think, it's what you think, like I can play some of Petrucci's and Gilbert's stuff, but I still think I've got a world to learn though my friends say I'm the best in the school ( and I am... sadly)

Pretty neat song, but that second bend sounded way out of key. Besides that, yeah, you're good.

lol, well, this is what this site's for of course. Criticising each other's work. XD

People are allways saying that I'm an "amazing guitarist", but I'm really not. They obviously don't know what amazing is.
