I've been playing about 3 year now. I taught myself for the first 6months and then got a teacher and learned some music theory and chords and whatnot. Since then my playing has gotten a lot better, but still has loads of room for improvement, I really need to practice playing what I DONT know more then what I DO know. Anyway, tips and tricks are greatly appreciated, you can find me in GG&A in the forums most of the time, Rock on!
