Ok so I practise my guitar every day and I can play loads of songs and I would say I’m a good guitarist (if I do say so myself) and I have been told I am a good guitarist however I have this friend called keir and he is way better than me, he’s always playing these awesome ridden and solos which I can’t do, I understand about scales and things like that and what notes/chords sound good together but he is just way better than me how can I get better?

    just keep practising as much as possible. thats the only way im afraid

  2. KittyKat8 says:

    Unfortunately all you can do is practise. It takes time to pick up the speed to play and the more often you do it the better you will be at it. If there’s something your friend does that you want to learn why don’t you ask him to teach you? There will always be people that are better than you in things but as long as you keep practising you’ll be fine. You can also look on youtube, they have some good videos that teach you how to do certain things on a guitar.

    One of my favorite guitarist told me that he used to practice at least five hours a day. Today he is one of the top three guitarist in my country. Practice – that’s the key. And about solos, you need to be a little bit creative to catch the audience.

    If you could create an individual style then you are a hero. Create some individual pattern of solos.

    Learn classic even if you are interested in modern.

    Best of luck dude!

    You have to seek out virtuoso players and analyze what they are doing. By reaching beyond your grasp you will improve. Check out Cacophony (Jason becker, Marty Friedman), Racer-x(Paul Gilbert & Bruce Boulliete), Guthrie Govan, Eric Johnson, Shawn Lane, Brent Mason, Scotty Anderson, Tommy Emmanuel, also don’t forget the great Jazz players like Pat Martino, George Benson, etc There is a wealth of free music theory out there nowdays which will help you tremendously on the guitar to unravel the seeming complexity of the fretboard.

    keep practising and alsowhen learning new techniques etc start really slowly and get the technique perfect only then do you speed up. Also learn sacales all over fret board which helps a lot. Another thing is playing and listening to many different styles of music as you learn new techniques and theory from all types of music!!
