It's pretty simple. If someone askes you if you're a good guitarist, how do you respond?


It's all about ego, baby.

No Im not. I still have a lot to learn, and techniques to strenghthen.
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!
#8
I'm ok I guess. It's really subjective, I don't consider technical ability as a good guitarist. To be a good guitarist you have to make up good creative interesting riffs, imo.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

"I don't like to brag, but... **** YEAH!"

Just kidding... My answer would be "That's for you to decide"

As for me... I consider myself an average player... Or so I say, at least.

Great.


You just single-handedly caused an entire future generation of people to be flushed down the toilet.

Good job, TS.

I just say that I've been told that I play well.
What can we do with a canoe that will make people say, "Oh No, What's Wrong With Them?"

I've always said I'm 'OK' but I know a lot of people that are crap and say the same so I'm tempted to upgrade my response to 'quite good', I don't have the ego to say that though.

I made a thread practically identical to this not that long ago

Is it incest if I had sex with my brother in law's half sister? Because if it is, it was so ****ing worth it.

It's not worth arguing with you again. Also I guess that would make you a good songwriter but also a good guitarist, imo.

i just say "im alright..."

+1 and then I ask what they consider "good" as
#33
Usually, if it's another guitarist asking, I always think I'm really bad, but lately lots on no-players tell me I'm really amazing (admittedly they no very little about the instrument and say 'do hey there delilah' - I then proceed to play Freebird). As a result, I'd say I fall into the alright/pretty good category.

Everyone can relate to food or taking dumps but nobody sings about it.

[quote="'Tommy[fin"]']When someone asks me that, I ask them to define the meaning of being a good guitarist. Then I just play for them, if possible.


Me too. That is the only way to show it.

Although I do say I'm "alright".
#39
I'm just gonna throw it out there that i'm pretty much virtuoso material. I challenged Steve Vai and Zakk Wylde to a guitar duel yesterday and totally kicked their asses, then I composed a symphony while taking a dump this morning.

That's not the argument.

You again...musical taste is subjective, it's open for debate and opinion. Technical proficiency is not. You either have it or you don't. There is a right way and a wrong way.
