    I've played for about 7years, but haven't played alot in the last year, as i didn't take any of my guitars to my second year of uni,
    I've got four guitars, two electric (Explorer and a 'Vintage' PRS Copy), a 12 string acoustic and a six string acoustic

    Pretty good I suppose. My tutor is a little unreliable, but most of the learning comes from what you do in your spare time, I guess. I know for a fact I'm getting better, because my speed switching from chords is increasing.

    Should be sitting a test in March. :D

    Awesomeness...ive got a teacher like that. He's a bit of a prima donna...but he's an amazing guitarist. I've been playing for 8 years now.

    And so on...

    I've been playing for about a year and a half. I'm self taught, which has it's pros and cons. I feel I've plateaued out over the last few months. Any tips for pushing on would be greatly appreciated. Cheers lads.

    Have a look at is site Improvise Guitar.

    Try doing some improvisation. Learn your major and pentatonic scales to use over them.

    you play bodhran as well?

    Bullitt Guest

    The acoustic is a Fleetwood electro-acoustic. The Les Paul is an Epiphone Gothic. Didn't get much change out of a thousand quids for the pair, but bought them a bazillion years ago.

    The Bodhran and tin whistles are cheep and cheerful.

    My electric guitar is an Ibanez S Series, it's similar to the one pictured above but it's not got a glossy finished - it's got a matte finish. I saved over £100 quid coz i paid for it in cash about 6 years ago and i couldn't help but think £600 for it was a bargain!
    My acoustic is just a standard £250 Tanglewood. Nothing special, just sounds nice.

    Been playing for about 9 years, but i've never had a tutor.
    So as i'm sure you're all aware, unless you've got a gift for music, 9 years of struggling with a guitar without tutorship introduces you to a mediocre guitar player.
