We're chaps, m'dear. We don't blow our own trumpets or anything like that. We're not Girls, who can be needy and insecure, esp. when it comes to praise.
We do it and write it accurately, and if another chap says 'pretty damn good' we know what that means: it means it's pretty damn good.
Chaps 'big up' their deficiencies at the expense of their manifest good points because otherwise would be bragging....but we can retreat to extreme accuracy as long as it has a somewhat self-deprecating slant. Ergo, I might say I'm accomplished as a guitarist, but... then I might mention that I'll never make a first rank flamenco player.
It's what chaps are like. If you want extreme accuracy it's what gentlemen are like.

I think you're a gentleman. And a pretty damn good one at that.
