Playing the most technical songs in the world doesnt make you a great guitarist. Just want to make that clear. Neither does playing 12 notes per second and all of that speed crap. Ive been playing since I was 14 and am 16 but am not that great seeing as I only left sunset boulevard (green day and al...
