    I feel I'm competent because I practice a lot, daily, and I practically live with a guitar in my hands. I'm good at certain things, and I'm striving to improve all the time.

    ^ that's a joke.

    It's really:

    Not ok at times, ok at times, always trying to get better. I beat myself up too much.

    Really good at emulating any guitarist, really bad at being myself, but slowly improving.

    I can play just well enough to make people think that i can play decently, but against a real musician, I've got nothing..

    Real guitar or air guitar? Because on a real guitar it's taken a lifetime of practice to become as mediocre as I am. But air guitar........... I'm another Brad Paisley!!

    I play more for my amusement than for your entertainment, but if you like it, we'll both be happy.

    I'm only ever as good as the people listening think I am, and that opinion varies in direct proportion to how much the listener knows about guitar.
