    I've been playing for about a year, if i were to analyse my playing i would say my rhythm playing is good but my lead sucks, mostly because i can't play any fast leads yet.

    Technical ? Improvisation ? Interpretation ? Transposition ? Chords ? Scales ? Reading music ? General Music Theory ? Etc ?

    Let's think now. What could he conclude that i needed to practice on from my 15 sec of playing. I doubt it's anything of the above, except technical, which practically means speed. I was also being a bit sarcastic because i wasn't really sure what he was trying to say.

    Well I can play alot of thing really fast on the key but my technicallity is not very good, so I don't think it's the same. And anyway it's not important, I even don't know why I'm posting...

    Calm down guys, fuck. He's doing good for 7 months, I wasn't even playing lead at that time and now I'm playing 16ths at 200bpm. Everyone progresses at their own pace.

    I hardly practise. I got this way by playing like 8 hours a day when I was in school. I just used to play Metallica, then moved on to Satriani, then Vai, then Malmsteen, then Paul Gilbert then Laiho.

    So by the time I tryed playing Satriani licks, I already had good control so it was easy for me. Then when I moved onto Vai, I already had experience playing melodies so that wasn't too hard. Then when I discovered Yngwie, I had already played all the stuff above so his style wasn't hard to pick up and the speed just came naturally from playing for ages everyday.

    I usually just take parts of songs that I want to learn and practise them.

    EXAMPLE:

    Picking: Alcatrazz's Jet to Jet solo intro or Scit Scat Wah by Racer X.
    Legato: Just basic mode shapes up and down.
    Tapping: Paul Gilbert patterns to a metronome.
    Sweep picking: This Godless Endeavour has a great sweep section. Not to forget most Jason Becker/Cacophony songs too (Black Cat, Altitudes).

    That's basically how I got my chops together but now I just play simple 4/6/8 note patterns because I'm preparing myself to play Racer X stuff which is ridiculously hard.
