i want to go to berklee, just wondering how good your gonna have to be to even get an interview with them, even though it willb e another 4 years down the line till i go when im like 21 or so but i gotta start planning now

can a newb get into berklee, or do you have to have TONS of musical knowledge......i dont have tons, but im not a newb either....and i can play alright...i guess i think im getting past the beginner stage!!!

i can play many different lessons from gmc perfect, like the iron maiden 1, and maleza's solo, neo sweep picking, most of pavels Rythem and solo section, and a lot of Gab's Blues lessons biggrin.gif great job on those also guys, but od you think that will be enough, i know i have to play my own stuff and everything, but those lessons are just a reference on how i can play, do you think thats good enough now, or should i wait for a hwile..then apply???? i just graduated highschool today..so i still have time to think about it, but i need your guys help if im good enough!!1

and also my theory knowledge, is alright!!!

You don't have to know much stuff to get into Berklee. I wanted to get there myself but it's tooooo expensive for me to get in sad.gif I could try to have an audition for a schoolarship so i don't have to pay the full schoolarship but i just decided to let it go as 3 out of 10.000 people get it so....

Ofcourse you can try. If they refuse - you can always try it again next year!

Here comes the hard truth: playing someone's stuff won't help you to determine your level of skills. After you have learned a couple of lessons try to record your own tune or song or something trying incorporating the stuff you learned from the lessons and post it on forum for us to hear it! smile.gif Good luck with Berklee!
