I've been teaching myself now for 10 months, I understand different people learn at different speeds, but I was just wondering if im making good enough progress, what was the best thing you could play after about 10 months?

I honestly can't remember back that far.

But some people learn faster than others it's the way of the world as long as you put the most effort into guitar that you feel you want to give it/can give it it doesn't matter.

After 10 months I had gotten pretty good. Ive only played electric for like 15 months, and the hardest song i fully know is probably crazy train, and everyone learns that sometime.

meh, don't worry about howfar you are progressing. If you are having fun and learning at all, then that is all that counts. Different people progress at different rates. And different people have different time allowances as well.

After ten months? Hmm.....
No idea. But I think that was right after the end of freshman year of HS, When I was mostly making punk songs.

This is where youtube is **ing awesome. This is a video I made about a year after I started playing guitar. It's a good indicator of where I was after a year.

I probably knew barely parts of couple scales and didnt make it to stay on beat...

10 months... it might depend do you try to learn with teacher or by self... how long you practise in a day, what you practise and what is your real "knowhow"... how good you really are? practising one song that you can play good or do you have wide area you master, minor and major scales and their variations, lead or rhythm or both, shredding or shuffle... how you can improvise what you are able to into different style of music and chord progressions... how you ever can describe how good you get in months or in years? Answer is probably "not good enough".

As a teacher, this is a question I get asked a lot, and the truth is I can't remember how good I was at the 10 month mark. However, I do remember that I loved the skill level I was at and felt hugely motivated to keep playing and improving.

Honestly, it really doesn't matter how much progress you've made. Really. At all. If you are enjoying it, that's great. If you're finding there are things you can't do yet, that's even better.

Like the old saying: it's not the destination that counts, it's the journey travelled to get there.

Keep travelling.

Shouldn't that depend on a lot of things?

Not really, I mean, I could make a few chords and play somewhat of a couple of songs, but I wasn't very good until about mid way through my Senior year(some 5 years after picking up the guitar)--that's when I started to actually make leaps and bounds in my abilities.

LMAO I just noticed you put this.....dude you definitely dont suck!!!:)

I remember around 10 months of playing, I had just kinda got the major and minor sweep patterns and i thought i was the sh1t lol.....so i went to sam ash to play in front of a "crowd".....one of the most fun times ever 'cuz I sounded soooo bad. The crazy part is that I turned my amp up LOUD back then at sam ash, but since i got better and can actually play, i had become more of a punk and started keeping my amp so low that i could barely hear it.

........good times that i'll never forget....ever

I was bad then and I'm bad now, as long as Coltrane, Bach, and Monk, exists I'll be horrible forever so I don't even bother thinking about.

It's better just to set goals and get them done, really it is the only thing one can do; that or sit around all being depressed or haughty, both being a bottomless pit for the soul.

I wasn't very good and I really don't consider myself good now. I'll never stop learning new stuff.
