You can always be better at what you do - AND you can always be more TECHNICAL.

Even Rusty Cooley sais he has tons of things to practice and in my opinion he is the most technical player out there so there are no limits!

And as Andrew said - move from one country to another - enjoy your life!

If you have the chance - go to college and pursue your guitar while in college. Think of it this way; there are a lot of great guitarists who never make it big. There are a lot of popular players who aren't as good as the average guitarist in a local music shop. You need a back up plan in case your guitar playing doesn't put food on the table. You are obviously young enough to still be at that point in life where you can do both. No kids, wife, etc. Equate it to an athlete who skips out of school early and go's to the pro's. Blows out a knee in training camp. career over, no school, out looking for a job.

Just make sure you put serious consideration into school if you can. You will be glad you did, but most importantly, just be happy no matter what you do! and ALWAYS Practice! biggrin.gif ROCK ON!!!!

if you have the chance, go to college !
you'll meet a lot of new people and you might change your intrests while you get older.
you might as well meet some other (better) guitar players so GO TO COLLEGE.
