Just thought it would be interesting to see the numbers for each of these categories for GMC students only (not instructors, just us mere mortals). Rate yourself based on the levels of GMC lessons you have learned or attempted. I'll rate myself a Beginner/Intermediate. Poll will close Friday, November 21.

If you're an Intermediate, Emir, then I must be .... what's the category before Beginner???? By the way, I intended this poll for GMC students, not instructors. I've tried to make that a little clearer in the poll.

Cheers.

My playing is getting more and more worse becaus of a lack of time to practice. So i vote for beginner:)
I tried palying Blackened by Metallica last week oh man fast downstrokes no way to play at the moment:)

And i tried diffrent AP licks and exercises and no chance to get it up to speed i went defnetly down in the level:)

hehe, I voted Intermediate-Advanced. I see nobody clicked advanced yet.

The thing is how I see an advanced player. For me it's not only a technical issue. As long as I find some players almost "untouchable", I would consider myself intermediate. Those don't have to be a famous stars. I think I still have to learn a lot.

In my eyes (and ears) Emir, and within the GMC community, you are certainly an advanced player. Perhaps, I should have added another category after Advanced ... perhaps "Instructor Material" (I'm too scared to edit the poll now - it may disappear again). Anyway, as I mentioned before I really intended the poll for us mere mortals, the GMC students. The results may be useful for the instructors.

Cheers.

Sorry mate I didn't want to interrupt the voting smile.gif I thought anyone can vote.

If you asked me to vote 10 years ago I think I would press the same button as now. I am also sure that the same would happen in the next 10 years. If you ever get to this point where everybody think of you as an advanced player then you might remember what I meant. You will probably find your self somewhere there but you'll never be sure 100% if you are really one of those advanced ones smile.gif

I hope you understand

I put intermediate-advanced, because I can play a few advanced things, but I also have major technique lacks.

But then I read the thread, and if Emir is "intermediate-advanced", I cannot be even intermediate... tongue.gif

Guys like Emir, Muris, Gabriel, Ivan, etc I would put on a level beyond advanced if there were this option on the poll...

Probably no one or few people will vote advanced for himself, but from collabs I would say that some guys like Smells, Tolek and Tchjep are in there, in the advanced club.

No worries, Emir. I should have made it clearer in the poll originally. My first poll, so it's a learning process.
Keep rockin'.

Well it all depends on how we view ourselves. I voted beginner-intermediate because beginner for me is a person that just started playing the instrument, maybe know basic chords, how to play smoke on the water, and not much more. But I could as well put myself in the beginner category, as I don't know so many things, that reaching intermediate level for me will take few years. I take into account many different things, as for example I can play some difficulty 5 lessons, but I couldn't create such melodies now, and I don't know the theory behind those pieces of music. Also in some techniques I am on difficulty level 2-3 etc.etc. I excepted that Emir or one of the other master guitarists from GMC will not vote advanced, because it always works as this: "the more You know how to play, the more You know how much there is still to learn".. Years ago if I would see some of the lessons I learned already I would think "wow if I would play that kind of stuff one day, I would truly rock". Now I see other, more advanced lessons and think the same thing huh.gif

I put beginner-intermediate. I'm intermediate in a lot of areas and beginner in a lot of others. But I'm pretty rubbish and useless on the whole to be honest.

I feel the same. If someone would say to me play something i think i had no idea what to play and then when i start playing he would think "man he is bad:)". I can play so many things but i have not the feeling to say he i am good:)
