Just here to brag about myself . Before this site, I was a halfway decent guitar player but was missing a lot of things and had next to no theory knowledge. Now, after being here a while and understanding things a little better, I can see and listen to guitar parts I once thought would be impossible to learn and pickup patterns, etc that I was never able to do before. Like right now, I’m looking at Jeff Loomis’ solo to Nevermore’s The River Dragon Has Come, which is ridiculously fast, but I was able to pick it up and recognize the arpeggios and patterns. Yay me!
