    I threw together some footage of me soloing (read: messing around - there are tons of mistakes) over "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd. It's just the kind of song that I get lost in.

    Excuse the poor quality; blame my webcam.

    FYI: All I'm playing in the video is the B blues scale (Pentatonic Minor) and some Aeolian.

    Not too bad. If you really want to test your guitar abilities, listen to some Al Di Meola or John Mclaughlin. Try to emulate their speed and precision. My friend, who is an excellent guitarist, has self taught himself alot by trying to emulate John Mclaughlin's style. (Notice the "h" in John. Jon Mclaughlin is some teeny bopper garbage).

    Thanks, for the most part I've been trying to develop my ear, and then focus more on speed in the future. My goal isn't to become a mechanical, music-less shredder. But I will look at that John McLaughlin guy's stuff.

    pretty good...little too much sliding for my taste. I love soloing using pentatonic scales.
