    What do you rate me. (Skill Level). I can play almost all of the green day songs. I know the g maj. thing. I have made up about 20 different riffs that are all played fast not just power chords. I cn play with a pic (cant everyone) and I can play the fingerstyle. What do you say? I've been playing for about 6 months. I am just wondering if I am on the right track.:eek:
  2. I'd say you're on the the right track. Learn other things then Green Day. Try Tom Sawyer, that will teach you some things.

    6 months? and you can't 2 hand tap 16th notes at 120 bpm? You can't double thump at the same time? No solo CDs yet? jeez you must not practice at all!! ;)

    I been playing about one and a half years now. I can also play pretty much every blink song and most greenday songs I care to play (who can't after this long of playing?). I have written 5 or 6 songs for my band (guitar 1 and 2, bass, and drum parts). I play fingerstyle mostly, and some pick when I feel like it. It sounds like you are getting there. It might be about time to start branching out into more styles of music and playing. Work on some theory, learn some scales, modes, arpeggios, etc. That is where I am at right now, mainly concentrating on my technique and on learning theory. I still write songs and stuff, but I no longer learn new covers oranything because I know all of those I need to. It sounds to me like you are doing good. Just keep on bassin'!
