s long as yoru still having fun and improving then ya, if either of those goes down you need to look at what your doing wrong

well at the moment i love playing guitar and writing songs, i hate recording them, but i love writing them. and hopefully i will be able to get a full band and play some shows in the future.

There is no set law of the jungle saying that a guitarist after one year should be here.

But it's good playing.
#25
for just you and a drum machine that's pretty damn good!

keep it up the good work
NO.
#26
I've been "playing" for two years and now I'm ashamed to even pick my guitar up...

You're the amazing mate!! I wanna be like you lol!!!

Just one question - are those actually your songs? If yes, then god, you are seriously talented and I want to download them if I can, cause I love them!! Or are they not yours?

Wow man, I just wanted to say once more that you are amazing, I just can't stop listening to your "Struttin' Busted"... How did you learn to play like this in a year? Did you learn notes/chords/scales or did you just go straight for the tabs?

From no on, I'm your fan I always thought I'd be able to play like this after like 5-10 years lol )
#28
Guitar isn't a race. However for a year I'd say you're doing very good.

haha, well thanks. yes those r my songs. and i sarted out learning just the main chords like g, d, e minor, etc. then my uncle showed me some blues scales, and i would just play them over and over again until i could play them at a reasonable speed. then when i learned to read tab, i started learning like tons of songs.

thanks.
