Simpel answer: PRACTICE! First youshould know which music you like, if you wanna play rhythm or lead guitar etc. If you are a complete beginner, I suggest you pick some lessons by Bear Rose, so you learn everything right from the beginning. If you can already play chords and need to get that groove in your left and right hand, your choice will be lessons by Adrian.

First you must have a direction to move in....A goal. What would like to do on the guitar? Write your own music? Be a great lead player? Or just jam along with the songs you love?

Regardless; the first steps mentioned above (Bear Rose) is a great start for a beginner, also as stated above, practice, practice practice.....

Figure out your goal then the steps to achieve them will become clearer wink.gif

What is your current status? What were you working on these last couple of months? What guitar do you have, what music do you like? We cannot recommend flamenco exercises if you like heavy metal.

I think defining a goal is very important. Both long term and short term. For this week learn a solo/song you love. In the long term, to learn a complete album you love

Ok mate smile.gif this is a good start! What exactly would you like to be able to play from these genres - meaning - are you more inclined towards riffing or lead playing?

Yeah buddy, don't be shy! Talk to us, what is your level of playing, are you a complete beginner or an intermediate player? Rhythm or lead? Playing experience?

Don't be shy man! smile.gif Did you practice pentatonic scale? If not, it may be a good time to start. It's a foundation for every guitar player, and specially helpful for blues and rock.

Check out my Pentatonic Workshop Series! smile.gif

Well said! smile.gif That really is the secret sauce. I wish there was a way around it for you but there isn't. You really just have to dig in and practice every day. Pick some lessons to start with and keep at it. Playing a bit, each and every day is the best way to get better. Try to play for about an hour every day if possible. Take a day off when you need to, then get back to it. Keep this up for about a year and then adjust as needed. I often write things that are at the edge of my ability to play so i still have to practice quite a bit even after playing for quite some time. The good news is that once you reach a certain level of skill, even when your hands are not warmed up, you can still hit most every thing I want even upside down and in the dark with one hand smile.gif So finally when you warm up you can play almost anything wink.gif

I'm sure you've heard

"True skill is effortless"

and it's true, but it only looks effortless due to years and years of intense practice. Getting to that spot where you go to play and it almost happens by itself, is a noble goal. And one you can reach. smile.gif
