    sixteenth triplets? u mean sextuplets?(6 notes per beat at 140bpm?)

    At 16 I was playing Killswitch Engage and Fear factory songs sloppily and being quite pleased with myself. Shit that was only 9 years ago, and 16 year olds these days are playin AAL and whatnot like it's nothin. Motherfuckers! :scream:

    at 16 which would be 2 years ago i was on some sort of confused mainstream kick, nickelback, hinder, papa roach, but then i got into more technical stuff and began to progress alot faster soon after that

    i started at the age of 7 and with 16 my technique was very good already, playing e.g. all COB stuff + solos nicely with ease (playing 4-6 hours almost every day..)
    today im 24 and pretty much can play anything that`s on the market, but i didn`t improve my technique A LOT since then. I guess I just fine tuned it and became a much better musician (tone, quality of music, stage performance etc)
    because becoming a good guitarist is different from becoming a good shredder..!
    that`s two pairs of shoes. and it`s never too late to become anything of the two! you can always improve whatever you want, it`s just up to you i guess..
    have fun and always enjoy the way to become better! : )

    I'm 16 right now, playing for 1yr with something, I play alot Lamb of God, AOAA and other songs I like. I'm developing my technique alot for some weeks. I just thought "hey, I know everything about gear, alot of music theory but I suck at guitar!". So I just started to make lots excercises with metronome. I feel I'm getting much better.

    Where I am now but that is because I'm still 16 woot for the youthfulness, but my dad says my guitar playing has greatly improved recently so I went from crap to okay lmao

    At 16 (a.k.a 3 months ago) I was getting OK at sweeping+alternate/economy picking and still knew fuck-all about writing a half decent song. After practicing a stupid amount recently and recording a ton of stuff, I've gotten a lot better. There's still a long ways to go though
