i'd say over 1 year and under 5... when you're still learning, but know the basics... for me, i realized i was intermediate when i stopped playing covers and started writing music... Then my guitar playing went in a new direction. I think this turn was the one to intermediate... I think advanced is when you can seamlessly translate emotion and moods through a guitar, without looking, in front of a huge crowd, and no mistakes

It's really easy to say when someone is a beginner. It's also easy to say when someone is advanced.

In between there is really hard to judge though.

Well how much exp do you have? You need like 10,000 exp to reach level 25, which is about intermediate...
86% of the people who frequent the "Electric Guitar" forum would say that they have played guitar for under 5 years.

You get it when you beat the boss at the end of the beginner level. I think it's a dragon or somthing...


There are no levels dude. It's just what you are at the time.

Ok cause my parents are like "you're still a beginner" and I've been playing for around 3 years, but constantly for around 2 of those three I know a few whole songs, a lot of parts of songs, and I'm starting to write. They said it's because I haven't even taken lessons yet.

^Don't think of it in terms like that. We're all pretty much always beginners in some aspect of it. As long as your desire to learn outweighs your ego, you'll progress.

You never stop learning, EVER

Paul Gilbert still takes advice from other guitarists and you can see how he's progressed so much over his career
