Im curious to know if my guitaring is at a good level for 4 years of good solid playing.

i practice as much as i can and have 2 guitar teachers. (one is classical/theory and the other is a jam teacher)

Please have a look at my youtube clips and tell me if im doing alright.

I've just recently learnt the glass prison (dream theater) arpeggios and can only just play them in time, but not super clean.

thoughts?

Edit: i am referring to guitarists that have play for over 5 years if possible.

I'm on dial-up so I couldn't look at too much, but for what I was patient enough to wait for, I was really impressed. If I'm that good when I've been playing for four years I'll be happy.

Here's the link for those to lazy to copy and paste... youtube.com/spanman

I'm not too sure on where you should be in 4 years of playing, I'd say that your tone's pretty good, you need to work on your lead work a little bit though, there are a few parts in your MoP cover where I could hear you didn't dampen the strings properly, but your improvising is pretty good, but towards the end of the improvising before Kirk's solo, it starts to sound a bit dull and out of place but the rest of the improvising was good.

As for your second solo, you played the lick way out of time and several bits of the solo were also out of time, but overall, it was pretty clean.

For four years, in my opinion, you should have your timing down properly instead of going all over the place.

Why do people always post these topics? Why don't you just ask your guitar teacher.

The only reason for these threads is:

A) you know you are good and want to brag
B) they suck but want someone to tell them they are good

^Actually this seems to be one of those rare occasions where the OP is actually looking for legitimate criticism. You can usually tell when someone is just looking for an ego boost and this guy doesn't seem the type.
