hello guys, ive been playing guitar for about a year and 2 months and ive covered songs like november rain, comfortably numb, another brick in the wall, bohemian raphsody, sultan of swings, ten years gone by led zepp, dreamer by ozzy and many more. i can nail those solos fairly well. my tempo and speed are ok too but a problem is that i play with an acoustic which has a bit high action but i do quite good when i borrow someone elses electric guitar since i dont have any. i can also pluck recognizable songs like tears in heaven and few more. im currently working on more speed picking licks and learning some theories. i try to practice 2/3 hours a day cuz im busy with my exams. and umm umm .. is my progress decent enough ? what ya think ?

lol edit: i covered 1st solo in sultan. just forgot to mention.lol

If you can nail Brian May on BR, and the Mark Knopfler's fast legato at the end of Sultans, after a year, I'd be scared. Well done m8. You're doing fine.

Another thing, if you're practicing 2-3 hrs daily, that's plenty, assuming you have a very efficient mode of practice.

You are ok.

I play since 2 years and you seems good like me at soloing. I'm mainly a rhythm/riff player though, I rarely play solos.

EDIT: OMG Sultans Of Swing after 1 year? I never tried it, but the last solos seems too fast for me. Well done then

1) theres no such thing as "ok" - you should decide yourself whether you're improving at a fast enough speed or not. at the end of the day it doesnt matter; if you want to improve faster, then practise more, if you want to relax a bit, practise less.

2) practising on an acoustic is gonna make your left hand dynamics much much better, if you switch to electric, things will feel really easy (but it might take some getting used to)

3) ignore people on UG - theyd love to make you feel shit so they can feel better about themselves. (although so far people have been quite nice i guess)

you're probably a lot better than i was when id been playing for a year and 2 months...

lol at the 3rd comment, it's a paradox. You are a guy on UG too

And this is not the pit. People here are generally a bit more mature.

Sounds about right. Bo Rhap and Sultans are good songs with good solos, at a year and a bit, that's pretty good.

Look, you're obviously dedicated enough, it's time you shelled out for an electric. Even if you pick a shit one up for $50, it's better than nothing.
