I would answer no. If I ever start thinking great things about my ability I know for sure I'm going downhill...! sad.gif

No way man. Besides, no one would believe you. Especially here. I think you know that! biggrin.gif

Anyway, if you say "yes" you are not stating that you can not or will not get better, or that you are at a point where you don't believe that you need to get better. It's ok to say that you are good! Anyone would do a great diservice to themselves to work countless hours/years and practice like there is no tommorrow (like you do)only to state that they are not good and actually believe it.

It's just hard to think that way because you are humble - no??? cool.gif

I have many points of view:
  • My guitar teacher, all other guitar teachers in the school and even the director say that I play nice. But I think that I still have to increase my technique, sound etc. a lot.
  • Like Pavel´s method.^^
  • It depends. Some people are good at technique, other in sound. I personally find that I have to improve my playing.

I answer with the 2nd and 3rd point in most of cases.
