you all have talked me into getting lessons. well i chose to actually. lolz. anyway i read all of your comments and it seems that right now i'm good (i really am) but i guess if i don't get lessons i will never improve. i am better than someone who is has been playing for 4 years (2 more than me). i'm better at actually playing, but he has the technique. once i get that i will be unstoppable. buuuuuttttttt: how long do you think it will take me to start taking full advantage of the lessons? in other words how long do you think it will be until i can use the lessons to make me be able to make up riffs and kick more ass? 1 month, 1 week?
