You say that as if it's an easy song. It's fairly difficult, although I'm not a bassist and wouldn't know. As for me, I'd say I'm decent, getting myself up there.

I think I suck too.
I feel so much better every day/week/month that passes by, but still... I think I suck, even though all my friends/relatives/everyone who knows me thinks I'm awesome n' **** I still think I suck.

Pretty much the same for me.
#11
I dunno. Compared to people at my school, I think I'm quite accomplished. But I also think I have much to improve upon.

Maybe a 4 or a 5 out of 10.

I think you summed it up for me.

And I suppose Anesthesia is pretty tough....

Although I lied. I can play it flawlessly in all but 1 or 2 parts....
#17
i think i kinda suck, even though i'm actually decent, but am getting better

i'm a fair bit better than most guitarists in my school though

I'm decent, I'd put myself as like an intermediate lead player and maybe an above average rhythm player.

cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory

I thought I sucked.
Then I heard what other bassists my age are like.
Then I realized that I rock.
Then I watched a jazz bassist and realized that I have a long way to go...
#20
idk
for piano and trumpet
i know a bunch of musical terms
and i knoiw how to sight read

i like to improvise on the blues scale and what not

Actually was hard for me to get down perfectly. As for me now that I've just seen Billy Sheehan I'd be like a 3.
#28
Average. Just need to know more theory, so i don't just wank up and down the neck making crappy solos, and improve my technique.
It's gonna be a blue day

compared to the kids at my school, im the baddest thing since santa claus. But theres only about maybe 3 or 4 guitarists and they suck. bad. so on a scale from 1 to 10...4/10.

I was playing a bass in a store, just testing it out, and a black guy came up to me and told me I played like his brother, apparently a mad funk bassist.
I was quite flattered. Never really thought I played enough to be anything more than decent.

Well, I don't think I'm good at all. I've been playing a year and a lot of people I talk to say I'm really good for only a year but I don't know if they mean it or if they're just trying to make me feel good On a scale of 1 - 10 though, I'd say a 4? Whenever someone asks me how good I am I just say "I'm not bad" or "Decent.

I think I'm a fairly competent songwriter, have a lot of good musical ideas, know a lot more about gear than most other musicians I know, and have the 3rd best tone of any guitarist that I personally know. If there's one department in which I'm really lacking, it's my technique.

If I had to assign myself to a percentile compared to other guitarists, I'd put myself around the 85th-90th percentile.
#37
I don't rate myself as a player. I can't say I'm good and I can't say I'm bad. Everyone's idea of "good" and "bad" is different so I leave that for others to decide. If they like the way I play then great, if they don't then that's fine too.

Im mediocre... Im an OK singer but as far as guitar playing... wooph. The hardest song I can play is Snow by RHCP up to speed.

Im still having some trouble learning different scales and my way around the neck too. All I have down are the basic pentatonics and the blues scale and some arpeggios.
#39
As an overall musician, i'd probably rate myself as a 6. I play a range of instruments such as guitar, bass, piano, baritone and i'm currently learning drums. Although on guitar i'd say 4.

i can tremolo pick really fast. my fretting hand though, is terrible.
i can be really creative. with the way i play. mostly chords, but i use it as a lead in some ways.
i also experiment with a lot of alternate tunings.
