Rate me 1/10 for what i can do at 2 and a half months - I am being 100% honest

Songs I Have Learned:
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Full) - not sketchy at all
Meant to Live (Full) - not sketchy
Talk Dirty To me (Full) - a little sketchy - Solo needs work
Behind The Mask (Full) - Sketchy, don't really work on it that much
For Whom The Bell Tolls - Need to work on the speed
Stairway To Heaven - Half way through - Need help remembering it
Day Tripper (Full) - Solo needs a little work
Smoke On The Water - Intro
Sunshine Of Your Love - Intro
Sweet Child O Mine Intro - Very sketchy, but the speed is right
Owner Of A Lonely Heart - Intro
Paranoid - Every good but the solo needs a little work
I Want A New Drug - I know bits and pieces of it
So What - Intro
Cat Scratch Fever - Intro
Iron Man - Intro
Fat Lip - Half way through (Learning that right now)

I can Tap very well
I can play almost all of the chords
I know most of the scales


Practice routine:

Warm Up - Steve Vai 10 Hour workout - 15-30mins
Scales (Pentatonic, Blues, ect) - 15 - 20 mins
Chord progressions
Tapping
Break
Then I practice Songs, ect

I practice everyday (on the weekends alot more)

and if anyone has any suggestions for what i should be working on more please say so


Thanks you!

EDIT : I am all self taught

well, theres 12 notes to choose from, umm, if i remember correctly that means 12x11x10x9x8 etc combinations, thats 479001600 scales/chords, and then theres extensions like add 9, 14, etc.

Damn

on a more serious not, what is the Vai ten hour warm up and where does one find it?

Edit: I know that math isnt really the right equations or whatever, but you get the point...
I have nothing witty to say here at the moment

Expect a change soon

I just want to know how he did a 10-hour warm up in 15-30 minutes.

Looks pretty good. In two months I couldn't even play three chords right, so... you're on the right track.

It was two articles that appeared in Total Guitar some point in 2006. I'm sure someones tabbed it out by now

i would just say dont limit yourself to learning others songs.
be creative and try making your own for awhile

We're talking about REAL guitar here, not Guitar Hero.

To be frank, it really doesn't matter how much you've accomplished in an arbitrary amount of time. As long as you can do the various things on the list well, and you're satisfied with your progress, then I'd say you're doing fine.

Unless, of course, your true desire is to flaunt your abilities to the anonymity of the Interwebs, in which case you're doing fine as well.


Props for the Yes and The Beatles.

well it sounds like your motivated! thats great!

Without actually hearing you play at all, its really impossible to say whether your doing good or not. it looks good on paper, but we have no idea of what you sound like when you play.

I would suggest getting a teacher if you can. 2 months is novice level, and thats when you develop bad habits.


anyway keep jamming !
shred is gaudy music

Sorry, but I've never really seen the point of these "rate me" threads, certainly not in this forum.

Obviously you're motivated and want to improve: you don't need a bunch of anonymous online people telling you whether you're good or not without hearing you play. Just keep practicing.
