My pops taught me some of the basics on bass guitar. But after a scale and a couple of songs, it was all on me. I've been playing 14 years.

It's almost been a year since I started taking lessons... I'm much better then when I started but, it feels as if I could have more out of it already..

I was self-taught for around half a year and I wasn't getting anywhere. I could play but I didn't know anything about really playing and what being a guitarist is. Then I started getting lessons and after a year and a half of lessons was asked if I'd be interested in teaching at a music school. That's all down to my teacher though. His knowledge of theory and his skill are second to none.

I practice everyday for about 2-3 hours but, I suppose I could get in a few more hours.

I'm a self-taught guitarist and it's REEEAAALLY evident that I've never had a lesson.

Damn, if I practiced that much as long as I've been playing, I would be a master.

Master - 10,000 hours of playing

That's about 2.5-3 hours a day for 10 years.

well it's not just practice, it's how you learn and progress.

i've seen guys who play for a year stomp on dude's who've been playing their entire life

Yeah, but when you've been playing your entire life you find ways to implement the techniques you've learned in more ways then if you've only been playing a year or so.
