I just got out of the "isnt seeing any improvement really, you should just sell ur guitar" phase, and im now in the "hey look at that, you can actually play 3 of the notes from that system of a down riff you've been practicing for 3 months" phase, im trying to get to 4 notes before I die so we'll see how that goes
Allen Freeman
I went through a lot of the phases. When I got to the teaching phase I realized I wasn’t good enough. Then occasionally fall back to the get more gear phase and the “learn a new song” tier, then the watch your channel phase.

I'm indonesian so a bit biased, but take a look at DiMavery instruments. I'm a session-bassist and get weird looks when I show up with my DiMavery (their instruments are seen as student-level instruments, really.), but the run-down is DiMavery is consistently good, are easy to tune, keep tuning for a long time even if you don't play for a while (hence the student classification professionally), come stringed with unbranded but good strings but really shine when you restring with accoustic Ernie Balls. Their half-accoustic line have an inbuild tuner which is accurate to my own surprise and sound great amped. Accoustic they have a meaty warm ring to them and even a beginner strum across open strings will bring a smile to your face. A DiMavery instrument won't fight you, but help you. You get all that for a really affordable price. DiMavery has model-numbers in this sequence: 3 letters, 4 numbers, 2 letters. If you buy 2nd hand, check the serial with DiMavery, because if you never played a DiMavery you won't know what to listen for.

I am above the pentatonic and blues scale right now but my parents told me to study so i havent played guitar in 1 or 1.5 years now
Java Monsoon
Java Monsoon 2 days ago
@Shree Olambe Why is growth your focus? I keep asking my students where the sheer joy of playing is in all of this. They all have goals years in the future or name confirmed and world-wide celebrated natural talents. "Not growing" tells me all I need to know, my friend. Your goal is too lofty and you're too critical of yourself. Rethink your goals, bring them closer to home and start playing for the sheer fun of it. Find the fun and the growth will come as a result- because growth by itself is not a goal. It's a by-product.

Yeah I don’t think I would ever join a pop country band. I have another idea in mind. I mean we cover some songs but we also do some originals to. Also the sound is similar to pop country except good. It’s also a Rock style.

I'm in the intermediate stage now! That's why I'm watching this video! Got so inspired one day that I learned the base track to "Wish You Were Here" in 15 minutes. Then spent 3 weeks mastering the solo. Now my fingers really hurt. And the skin on the tips are gone from to much fingerstyle picking. *BUT IT"S SO MUCH FUN!*
Well I'm a bit in the failure part, BUT I won't give up. I love that beautiful instrument to much to let it go 😂🎸

Getting a letter from Susan wojeski (spelling wrong) is nothing to be proud about. She's a law breaking tyrant and should be thrown in prison along with her sister. Wife of Google alphabet founder. These are sick people but I get it, you gotta eat and nobody or very few have actual integrity nowadays. They're selling out or country and violating our natural rights.

In the song writing phase after many years of learning from the hardest most difficult songs and studying artists like satriani and hammett to see what made them so good and melodic. Learning that jimmy page is a god for a reason and that when you an actually play it all, you're ready to write your own.

I’m not trying to be mean but you have really bad technique, you can get better and cleaner notes when you keep your thumb in the middle of the neck, again I’m not trying to be a bad person im just saying to try this technique out it may really help your ability to play

I’m an intermediate, play some gigs (mostly farmer’s markets and coffee houses) was a bass player in a country band, play multiple instruments, write and sing, am starting to learn how to mix/produce music, work on my own gear, and am almost done making my own recording studio. Now I just need to start laying tracks down, but perfectionism, life, and other lame excuses always seem to stop me...
