"Ever been asked to "rate" yourself?"

No.

But apparently most of the responders here think you just asked them.

Not exactly. I'd hazard to guess most of us have never been asked that, so why not have some fun with it?

Yeah, I guess you are right. Because I was the third one to respond to the original post. LOL

My grandmother would sometimes ask people, "Have you ever been to Africa?" If they said, "No", she would say, "Well then, let me tell you about it."

I've always liked the quote "I'm the best Keith Moon style drummer in the world!" Pretty much sums up my attitude.

See there? Piece of cake!
I don't know, Mike, you're at least a step higher than me and I gave myself a solid 6. (But I didn't account for unchecked, outsized ego, so that may have something to do with my high score.)

Absolutely the best answer and way to judge yourself.

I think that on a good day, I'm a solid 2.

I can keep time. I tend to stay out of the other guys way, I think I tend to stay within my ability and not try to do too much and look foolish.

There are soooo many technical things that I cannot accomplish. I used to get pretty down on myself when I'd go out to the local clubs and hear one of my buddies ripping it up. I finally decided, like someone else mentioned, to be the best "me" that I can be and to stop worrying about what I can't do.

Which is fortunate, because there's an awful lot that I can't do :)

The guys in my band seem happy with what I do, and many of the folks in the local circuit pump me up a little. I guess I don't suck, at least not completely.
