In today's world of technology, and so many home recording studios; musical genies is rarely recognized unless one has an ear for live studio recordings vs. editing software. Recordings are not what they use to be. Let's face it, legend guitarist plug in and jam live in the studio and usually on the spot come up with something added onto the track. With so much editing and mixing software used in the studios you can make just about anything sound great! But that doesn't make you a legend (live). One tip about guitar, the most important thing about guitar, having the dedication and passion to practice and progress further in it. I have met so many who are not dedicated to practice guitar modes/scales and new finger exercises. They never progress and they remain mediocre players; never progressing forward. Practice only makes a better player! Guitar is a beautiful instrument - Have a lot of fun with it, focus on your skills each day - and stay rocking. God Bless
