So, I think there must of been a thread talking about your skill level and I wanted to know know what your level of your skill is. (more detailed)


There are some guide lines on what you learned, mastered ,and etc.

* Songs
* Techniques
* Speed
* Timing
* Advanced techiques
* Scales
* Theory


and etc.. don't be afraid to show video of yourself.


Personally, I'm more of a novice player that know a few songs.I know tapping and alternate picking.


Poll coming.

If you don't like the poll... then ignore it.

i put intermeddiate to profesnniol. it all comes down to wether i practice or not that put's me in that position it would be amazing how good i would be if i could sit with a metronome longer than i do. plus im in a band and ohnestly my demo's are kick ass. my playing reminds of a like kirk hammet and dime bag mixed together. which is another reason i didnt just put professniol because i havnt really come up with my own style yet. which in my mind set's you apart and makes you a professniol. though i can sweep pick. and that's always a plus

I am a solidly average intermediate. I have plenty of room for improvement, but I could also be serviceable in a lot of groups that tour nationally...sadly enough.

i put intermediate, i play rhythm guitar im good enough to play live. and not look like an idiot, but i cant play leads for sh#t. and i`ve been playing for years. still though at rhythm, i got timing, and chord changing, pull offs, hammer ons, volume control,and at least a few picking styles down enough to claim intermediate. i play mostly old school metal and classic rock.

isn't there a part of the user profile where you can post this information? kinda a pointless thread IMO, it'll just become a "im better than you at guitar" war between all the douches on this forum.

BTW, skill level is subjective. what's good to one ear could be crap to another

I'm technially intermediate-proffesional but it depends what I'm playing.
In blues, I could pass off for proffesional (been invited to play with some big Rory Gallager tribute bands at the tribute festival this year, so technically, yeah.)
With shred and stuff I'm intermediate proffesional in some things, such as buckethead, I'm knocking many of his songs out such as: Soothsayer, Welcome to Buckethead Land, Electric Tears, Jowls, Interworld, Big Sur Moon, Spider Crawl etc etc etc.
However with the stuff like Vai, Guthrie Govan etc I'm a lower level.

With your average rock I could pass off the more proffesional range.

However overall, my technique is just coming out of the intermediate range I think.

Nice touch on putting a crybaby smiley on my post.I really don't think you understand what I'm saying.what I'm saying is if you think it is pointless then ignore it and don't say anything.If you want to be a child about it, go ahead and smiley away.Time will only show age's mirror I guess that doesn't apply to you.

I wont call myself intermediate until I can play scales at high speeds. Ive only been playing for 3 years though.

Intermediate. I can play, pretty good. Nothing special though. I can sweep alright, and I can learn a lot. I'm in the process of learning theory. I could probably join a band as a Lead guitarist but I would feel more comfortable as rhythm.

DieKrupps. Just because he mentions rythm, doesn't make him "novice-intermediate"

To fully judge your ability we'd have to hear you. However if you mean "power chords and some open chords" by rythm then you wont' be too great but if you mean "knowledge of chords, rythmic patterns etc" you'd be higher up.
