I been playing since my 14th birthday. Just recorded this with the pod xt i aquired for my 16th birthday a month ago. What do you think. Used my ibanez rg2550E. Sorry there is two mistakes, but apart from that it is perfect i think. I used a backing track and wrote all the leads myself. At about 2:30 there is a bit of shred. What you think of my playing? Its inspired by Vai:
That was pretty good for someone that's only been playing for as long as myself but who is a hell of a lot younger. None of the stuff that I write sounds anything like that...of course my playing really isn't influenced by Vai in the slightest so yeah...
Very good It seems like you're on the right tracks, most people don't even know what notes are in C Major after playing for 2 years.
I'd suggest acquiring some knowledge of harmony in terms of chord progressions as this is something people neglect and wish they'd looked at sooner after they've become strong in one area, i.e soloing lead style. If you do this then you'll be covering ground in all areas of music and hopefully be on your way to becoming a well rounded musician.
