Let's play a game.

Say how long you've been playing, and the song your most proud that you have learned so far.

I've been playing for six months, and mine would probably be Canon Rock or Voodoo Chile (Stevie Ray Vaughan's Live version).

How about you guys n' gals? inb4nogalsoninterwebs.

Wait...isn't there sweeping in Canon Rock? And you say you can sweep pick after 6 months?

And not waving but drowning.
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning.

Hahahahaha. Good point.

Been playing for 1 yr. 6 months. The proudest song I can play is Master of Puppets. I really boosted my self-esteem as a guitarist when I learned it.
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

Yelloooow!

4 months-ish
Focused a lot on scales and chords, every song I know is fairly simple but I guess Everlong by the Foo-Fighters
Learning a much harder one, and having trouble, at least for me :P, All My Life by the foo fighters.

man i been playing like 4yrs and i can't do laid to rest lol, really not good at metalcore down picking hardcore riffs.

I'm just proud of being able to enjoy playing an instrument and learning to play things that I thought I'd never be able to play before i started playing or when i first started.

But the thing I'm most proud of is not becoming a total toss pot like alot of other players I know.
Gear n Shizz:

Washburn X50 Pro
Epiphone Korina Explorer
Line 6 Flextone III 75w

Boss DD6

8 years, as for the second part it changes everyday. I don't get proud of doing something difficult, just making it sound good.

i've been playing for almost a year, and i can easily play master of puppets(full), one(full), battery(currently learning the solo, by the looks of it, it isnt hard), and for the love of god( with full g3 live intro solo. though some parts are still pretty hard).
#24
First picked up a guitar about 11 years ago, but only started to care about 5 years ago

In what way is this a game?

It's just a chance to flex your ego!


Not for me

I've been playing for about 2 years and the most technical song I can play is Hell Bent for Leather by Judas Priest... I can't even do the solo though

Whatever I still have fun playing though!

This is the only thing that people should be bothered about, been able to enjoy themselves and to express their emotions via the medium of guitar

Its not that difficult if you have good hand coordination and you can visualize the sequence of tapping strings and hitting the body in your head.

About two years. I just learned the Fade To Black solo, which is pretty fun to play, but my most proud moment has to be Midnight by Satch.
Up The Boro!
#31
10 years. Um maybe Dark Eternal Night by Dream Theater and Limb From Limb by PTH. Those are the latest two I've learned anyway.

ARSEDIT: And Limb from Limb on bass too.

#33
bout 3 years im much happier being able to learn how to convey emotion and really use the guitar to express myself

i ould learn songs but i just dont feel that takin 2-3 months of practice to get down a song like canon rock is a waste of my practice time honestly

so probably laid to rest i only know like 3 songs haha
