Trying to become a great guitar player, takes patience and dedication…

I get a lot of nice compliments on my guitar playing. Some people think I’m a good guitar player but in my mind, I feel like I got a lot of work to do. I feel like I’m an okay guitar player now but still got a lot of improvement to do.

Is my goal in guitar is to become a guitar god or a virtuoso? Admittedly, yes. That is my goal. I mean that’s part of why I picked up the guitar to begin with ’cause I wanted to play like my three main guitar heroes: Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Joe Satriani. I like so many guitarists but those three are my main inspirations.

Yeah, someday I want to play notes really fast and shred. I want to have technical ability and be able to improvise well. I’m working on it but slowly learning and trying to get there. I know a lot about music theory now ’cause I’ve been studying a lot of that.

It really does take a long time to get good at guitar. Again, some people think I’m good at guitar but I say, not really. I do want to become one of the greats someday and get noticed for my guitar playing but gotta have patience.

No matter how good at guitar playing I’ll be, I’ll always be learning new things.

I love guitar playing and always want to get better. I don’t want to work with guitar teachers ’cause I prefer to find my own visions and my own style in guitar playing. I do want to be the best I can be, though.
