I totally wish I new the language he's speaking in....sounds really good, but I might understand 10% of it at the most haha. I'm a self-taught guitarist so I'm very limited in terms of music communication for guitar.  With that said, thanks for sharing these- they're interesting to read despite my lack of terminology of scales/notes/dominants/7ths/chords/you get the idea  Grin

Yes I am sort of in this realm as well. Living with a two other musicians and jamming all the time has really helped the last couple months. Its just not the same as playing along to loops

Yep.  Great for your timing - plus it forces you to listen, as well.  Its like visiting certain types of websites vs. having a girlfriend. Smiley

Isn't that the beauty, though?  Reframe that thought!  You should never feel "bad" about your playing, but you should be confident in what you already know, yet aware that there's ALWAYS something you can improve on.  Any guitarist, Trey included, knows that there's TONS of shit he doesn't know, and MANY aspects of his playing that he can improve upon.

Yeah, but you can't know everything.  Just learn something new - you have to be willing to take some risk.  When you come back and read those articles in a year or two, you might know exactly what he's talking about and more.  Learn it and try to teach it to someone else - if you can teach it (correctly), you KNOW it Smiley

Knowing that there's so much I don't know is what drives me to learn more.  If I have any talent, its because I'm very self-conscious about my playing, I'm willing to take some risks, push what I know further while learning new things and incorporating them into my playing...  and because I know guitarists who ARE awesome and I've had a lot of help along the way.  Most of the time I think I suck, but its probably not that bad - nor is it as good when I get compliments after getting off stage or playing with friends, etc.  We slayed it on Tuesday night - I overheard a few people say that I'm an awesome guitarist - I don't believe them.  Nor do I really believe myself when I feel like I suck, or when other people say it, too Smiley
