a little over 3 years. I can play Eutgene's Trick Bag really slow and sloppily. I also know a little over a quarter of Paganini's 5th Caprice, which is pretty hard. The Call of Ktulu, by Metallica, is also moderately hard, and I know up to right before the solo.

20 years, but on and off (mostly off). Probably equivalent to 3 to 5 years of hard practice as far as technicality goes but I'm more blues oriented than "shred" when it comes to solos.

I'm guessing Megadeth's "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" or "Set The World Afire" are the most difficult songs I know, but once you know how to play something...it's no longer difficult now is it?

Five years this summer. But most of what I've accomplished had been shown by the third year probably. I can't see myself getting any better. I'm not grand, but there's only a few things I can't do, and I'll most likely never be able to do them.

yea, same here, my parents tell me i play guitar too much so i have to tone it down a lil and concentrate on my school more. then i work on weekends, and im too bummed out afterwards to play or do anything other than watch tv and eat.
but i do at least make sure i pick my guitar up everyday and play for a lil while, may for a bit in the morning and here and there.

btw, whats economy picking?

well trem picking is just fast alternate picking...

economy picking is like this:

e ----------------------------------2-3-4-4-3-2
B ----------------------------1-2-3-------------3-2-1
G ---------------------2-3-4--------------------------4-3-2
D ---------------1-2-3---------------------------------------3-2-1
A --------2-3-4----------------------------------------------------4-3-2
E -1-2-3------------------------------------------------------------------3-2-1 etc.

so you start by downpicking the 1. fret of the low e string so you up pick the 2. fret and downpick the 3. fret and then downpick the 2. fret of the A string. Like kind of a two string from the 3. fret e string to 2. fret a string. I'm not so good at explaining things thoug...

I'm not sure, I think 3,5 years or so.
I can pretty much play annything I sink my teeth in, but I find it hard to come up with my own stuff. I'm not too creative I guess.
I'm pretty decent rhytmicly, but I suck at leads.

As far as Slayer goes, that qualifies as a solo. It's funny that the official book doesn't even transcribe it though, it just says "*w/trem. bar effects ad lib. (2 gtrs.)"

I've been playing for about 7months and I've and I'm being taught classical and learning shred on my own just yesterday after I put down my classical picked up my electric found a pick. I learned pinched harmonics the ones I found were on the 1st 5th 6th and 12th fret trying to find more so if anyone has any advice please give. As far as songs go a bunch of classical stuff I don't know the name of. I really haven't had time to learn a song I spend my time building strength skill and technique to learn a decent song and can sobody give me some exercises for building up chord switching speed.

About the same as you.
I got my Jackson half a year ago - Thats when I started to get serious about guitar.

Before that I would play on my acoustic occasionally, but never bothered to learn much.

started when I was 16, 30 now, so 14 years. And I still suck too.... Guitar playing is a never ending quest for knowledge it seems, the more you know the more questions are brought up. It never fucking ends.

As far as hardest songs, assuming you mean other peoples songs, I'd say Holy Wars is up there. But as someone else pointed out, after you know how to play it, it isn't really "hard" anymore. I have tons of my own material that I think is pretty easy, but other people have said it's "hard". Soooo, yeah.

Yeah learning somthing new is hard because you've had no experience doing it but once you learn takes no effort to do anymore.

My kid is 8, he's taking lessons and has been for the past 8 months. He's getting really good at tapping with a metronome, and palm muting powerchords with various picking patterns. If he keeps it up he'll be very good in 10 years, but unfortunately right now he thinks of it as work. Although he does have fun when he figures something out, it's cool when he plays Iron Man.

If he complains about guitar practise, beat the little bugger senseless. Physical intimidation by a psychotic parent is well known to be one of the best ways to motivate a child to shred.

Agreed force your kid to play. when he's older he'll thank you for it. I'm 17 but when I was 8 up until 14 I was a dickhead way to smart for my own good. I regret when looking back that I did not listen to my parents and stick with music but it turned out for the best cause I was a little jerk if they had kept forcing me to play music I prolly would not be playing the guitar today. Anyway these are the days where you mold and form your kids don't let him stop do what you have to turn him into a good musician and when he is older if he still doesn't like it then music you know to leave him alone then.

HEy Iīve been playing guitar for around 10 years I think, but I started in "extreme" metal 2 or 3 years ago. I do the best in this 2 or 3 years.

I can play "Blind Agony: (in)culture" the solo included.

Donīt like a lot playing other peoples stuff. I prefer mine.

Been playing for about 5 and half years. I am self taught as couldn't afford lessons. I stopped playing electric guitar halfway through and spent about a year learning classical and bass guitar. I am awful at it - i can do all the techniques to some ability apart from sweep picking which i just find mind blowing at the moment. I don't generally play full songs - just riffs i like and solo's i dig. Can play some bodom stuff, most of arch enemy, trying to learn some Belphegor which is being a real bitch.

Just don't scare him away from metal. My mom forced me to play classical piano for three years, so my rebellion was obviously self-teaching myself guitar and listening to extreme music. Now I kind of wish I could play jazz piano like Chevy Chase does as a party amusement... Maybe I'll pick that up in ten years or so.

I'm coming up on 4 years now. Dunno what i consider the hardest thing i play. I play suffocation and cryptopsy, but i don't see a lot of it as that hard. Well the solos are because that's where i need a lot of work. the hardest solo i can play is probably Testament's First Strike is Deadly, and that's not even that hard.

I couldn't scare him away from metal if I tried. I've taken him to Death Metal concerts, little bugger throwing devil horns and headbanging away. He's seen Vehemence, Morbid Angel and Soulfly, and hopefully he'll be going to Ozfest this year to see Arch Enemy and others. He loves Children of Bodem, and him and his little buds are already talking about starting a band. Only problem is practicing is work, but he's getting good. He's learning how to arpeggiate chords and tapping now, so he's getting a good start.

I did start him on Classical too, to teach him to site read and just because it's a solid foundation, especially for metal.

I've been playing for almost a year now and the hardest song I can play completely is
"Ensiferum - Lai Lai Hei" and "Immortal - Tragedies blows at horizon"
Lai Lai hei's solo is hard as hell as I am still perfecting it. I'm taking lessons and practice about 2 hours per day at leased...

Awesome. I'd give anything now that I look back to start that young. It certainly sounds like he's got the potential to become one badass little mo'fucker. Plus, you're teaching him some proper stuff, not just annyoing rock tunes like I learnt for the first 18 months or so.

Out of curiosity, can he understand drums, like how a certain beat would be played, even if he lacks the coordination to actually play it? This would certainly help him continue to appreciate death metal. If he can, you should definately introduce him to the more technical bands, like Necrophagist or Cryptopsy. He'd probably find that stuff very inspiring.

i've been playing nearly ten years now, i'm 26

the hardest things i can play are;
Cannibal Corpse: Preverse Suffering and Pit of Zombies
I can play virtually any Slayer song(but ask me for solo's becuase i'm shit at playing other people's solos')
Death: Spirit Crusher, The Flesh and the Power it Holds
and of course any NILE song is particularly testing

I've had people telling me that some of the riffs in my songs are fucking hard so i suppose playing/writing my songs is one of the hardest things i do.

(That's not meant to be big-headed that's just what i've been told by several people after seeing us live).

I'm playing for like 4 months and a half, and the hardest song I play is... well I do mistakes sometimes in the solo, but not always... In flames - Trigger.

If only Metallica - fade to black's ending solos were a bit easier... not necessarily easier but maybe I just dont know how they are played.

Oh and I can play Nightwish - Wish I Had An Angel

I've been playing for about six years now, and no way do my skills correlate with the time I've been playing Now that I'm out of education and crap I should dedicate more time to practicing my technique and theory, considering that I've been into DM for about 18 months now and I'd love to be able to write whole songs rather than just riffs and shit

Hardest song I can play at the moment is Hate Eternal's 'Nailed To Obscurity', although I can't nail that bit in the fourth bar of each chorus... which I now realise is probably swept

If you're such a good guitarist, why not get a guitar with a proper trem rather than one of those ridiculously crap bridges?

Go with something like this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...ase_pid/519969/ Despite being almost twice as expensive as the one you're thinking of, a decent guitar will last you a lifetime, whilst a sub-standard guitar will need replacing after a year or so when the progression of your playing skills are being hindered by a poor instrument

Best to invest in something decent now rather than waste $250 on something you won't be playing 18 months down the line

Ooops! At first glance it looked like a licensed Floyd

Still, a double-locking trem is better than the crap that doesn't lock at the nut

Is this guy for real? lol

If you are, I hope your "school wide operation" goes horribly wrong, and then, instead of shopping for guitars online, you will be spending all day and night perfecting your "skin flute" chops behind bars.

He understands time signatures and how to use them. He wanted to play drums more than guitar, but that's changing now.

just over a year & a half. i began by trying to discipline myself to learn chords, and after learning open chords, i decided why bother since nothing i like uses traditional chords. i've gotten a lot better in the last 8 months since i said fuck it and accepted using powerchords in order to move on to picking technique.
i've been learning riffs from songs i like, but not really sat down to learn an entire song. i look at certain riffs as exercises to teach certain techniques.. for example, in trying to master the verse part of Old Man's Child's "My Demonic Figures," i'm learning how to stretch back down the neck from my pinky (hope that makes sense).

Shit...all I do are power chords...pretty good at em too and they bring me all the joy I search for in jamming.

I STILL can barely use my little finger......too weak and hurts after three or four songs......and I have been jammin about 5 years....3 seriously.

But like I mentioned.....I am so happy when jamming.....my progress is where I want it to be.....cant wait to see how well I jam in another 5.

that's all that matters. i look at my friend who is just learning to play and how much trouble he has with power chords, especially chaining them together within rhythm. you realize what seems so easy now was not so easy back then.

Quote:

well, i can use my little finger moving away from the headstock.. in other words, say i have my index finger on the first fret, i can use my little finger to reach out for the forth or fifth frets.. or even moving up and down strings. however, i find it hard to begin with my little finger on say like the 10th fret and then fret notes back toward the headstock without taking my little finger off the fret.. getting better though. i try to use reaching my fingers more than sliding when possible.

as much as i despise The Offspring, i always thought that little egyptian sounding riff in "come out and play" was kinda neat, and learning that part and playing it a million times built up strength and skill in my little finger. now i'm trying to use that Old Man's Child song to make my little finger effective in the opposite direction.

EDIT: scales help a ton, too!!

But like I mentioned.....I am so happy when jamming.....my progress is where I want it to be.....cant wait to see how well I jam in another 5.


Well I play classical I can't afford skipping on anything I don't know much anything about powerchords. All the excercise are helping in the past three months cause my pinky is one of the fingers I use the most because I know it's weak I train the hell out of it. In the last couple days training on my classical guitar with switching chords on my electric it's a breeze. As far as my progress I'll never be satisfied i'll be happy but i will always want more.
