Im wondering if Im staying on too easy songs or what.


I can play taxman solo, Get back solos, Mary janes last dance solo. What song is about the skill level of a 4 month guitar player? I can also play basic chords pretty well.

Smoke on the Water. You should defenately be able to play Smoke on the Water.

You're doing fine. Don't worry about what you "should" be able to play. Focus on learning your basics and learning songs that you enjoy. You'll get there

I got 3 positions of Am down, and i have some bar chords down, B, Bm, F and F#m, and C#m.

EDIT: I can play smoke on the water intro...but too easy to mention.

what you can play at 4 months depends on amount of practice...some people play better at 4 months than some other guy whose played 2 years...its all about practice.

and always challenge yourself.

it's a good start, but focus also on chords and try to learn minor pentatonic all over the fret. Also, play some exercises from lessons. You can also learn some easy technics or master them if you already use them, like bending, vibrato, slide, tapping and you should also start practising strict alternate picking or economy picking, so that you won't creat bad habits, 'cause that sucks... ;P lol nyway, you're rocking!
hands down.

There's not really any such thing as songs that are "too easy", particularly for a beginner. It's not like levelling up in a video game, being able to play something that you rate at a certain difficulty level doesn't automatically mean you can "beat" everything that's below that level.

When you're starting out it's important not to rush too far ahead...there's a massive difference between knowing how to do something, being able to do it and being able to do it well.

At 4 months you should still be concentrating on nailing the basics - changing chords quickly and smoothly, fretting individual notes accurately, picking single strings etc.

Everything new that you learn will benefit you a lot...with the guitar there's only stuff you know and stuff you don't know, and anything you don't know will need to be learned no matter how easy you think it is.

Tender Surrender - Steve Vai

......... ok more seriously at least one whole song all the way through memorized and the intros to ALOT of songs. YOu should also be experimenting with scales quite often and should be starting to memorize a scale throughout the entire fretboard for at least one key.
