    I think some of you may be taking it too seriously. I thought it was funny. It's on a web site along with 5,000 other stupid tests. If I'd failed it, I can tell you there's no way I suck. I guarantee that after 35 years of consistent playing, no one can truly suck at playing guitar. Well... at least not in theory.

    I got 70% but my gut tells me that everyone that scored below me can smoke my ass in playing. I have a high IQ and do well on tests.

    I thought it might be based on the Oxford Capacity Analysis, but then I saw Freebird.
    This was put together by a redneck, thus medius maximus percentile per capata would be the ne plus ultra ad infinitum.

    my score was 70%


    But I know i am terrible. Listening to me practicing should probably be listed as torture under the Geneva convention.

    Actually my rather lengthy post may have come across that way, but my intention was for it to be kind of tounge-in-cheek really..:lol:

    It was a nerd test, on a nerd website..So that automatically make anyone who takes the test a nerd..And since everyone knows nerds ain't cool and rockers are, there's really no way a nerd can be a rocker..

    Dang,we're just a bunch of nerds..Which if ya think about it, sucks wayyyy more than being a lousy geetar player! :facepalm:

    Now, where's my plastic pocket protector and horn-rimmed glasses with the tape on the middle? :erk:

    Yes, I may have looked at it too seriously... just seemed so ludicrous, some of the questions. Given where it's coming from though, some nerd thing, I shoulda guessed. Scored 60% BTW. Jerks...:applause:
