about 5 years

What kind of guitar(s) do you own? (eg. electric, acoustic, bass, 7-string, 12-string, doubleneck, etc.)

2 electrics (Epiphone Les Paul and one Squire Strat that I found and sounds horrible), 2 acoustics (Taylor 310 with a Fishman p/u and a Fender DG-11)

What are your top 3 favorite guitar brands?

Gibson
Fender
Taylor

Are you a left-handed player or right handed?

I'm left handed in everything else, but I play right handed

How much experience do you have?
1--I have no clue who Jimmy Page is
2--I'm getting there, but still a beginner
3--There's not very much that I can't play
4--There's not very much that I can't pick up easily
5--Ok, tell me again why people say that Randy Rhoads is so awesome?


probably a 4

Vibratos-- 7
Bends-- 8
Harmonics-- 7

What's your speed average speed in Beats Per Minute?

have no idea (i dont practice with a metronome)

What's the fastest speed that you've ever played?

see above

Are there any interesting tricks you can do, like play with your teeth, play upside down, etc.?

I can play with my guitar behind my back, a la Stevie Ray Vaughan. But I dont do it much or show off or anything.

How well can you pick out notes by ear? Rate from 1 to 10 (1=worst 10=best)

With a guitar, I would say about an 8 or 9 (really fast speeds would throw me off)

How well can you pick out chords by ear? Rate from 1 to 10 (1=worst 10=best)

With a guitar, 7 or 8

Do you use any music theory to help increase your skills? Why or why not? If so, what theory do you know that you've used?


I took a year of theory last year. It's helped a little in increasing my skill, but it mostly just explained what I already knew.

When you submit tabs to this website or any other website, what accuracy ratings do they usually get?


I don't usually submit tabs (although I think one I submitted a few years ago is still on here). If I did though, I would probably get a pretty high rating since I'm pretty anal about that kinda stuff. Most of the tabs I find online I can tell are wrong.

Are there any songs that you can play twice as fast as the original artist?

I dunno, I would assume so. I've never tried.

as a note I've had 6 guitars the past 5 months but I've sold them now, a modded ibanez SA160(schaller locking tuners, 2 EMG SA's and 81, drilled new output hole and was about to install a pizo but ran out of time) jackson DKMG, Jackson DK2S, Fender Strat(I'm getting that one back), Epiphone Les Paul custom, and my new ibanez SZ 320, and I have another Highway one strat on the way that will get some EMG's 81's or 85 and 81.

There as you can see I suck, you can listen to the suckness over in the CGR bands forum under surreal harmony.
