I think there's a lot to be said about this particular response with regard to the OP's question. The answer depends on who the "people" are in his post. I am well good enough to "impress" friends and other onlookers and that's all well and good. But generally when I play with guitar-playing friends of my age and experience level, I am not being modest when I say, all of them except one blows me away in terms of technique, improvisational ability, and breadth and number of tunes they know by heart. I think I understand my position in the pecking order, that's all. So the point is, in the OP's question, who is he comparing himself to?
