Whatever you find on GMC is good to practice.

Scales: major, minor, harmonic minor, phrygian is also a good scale to know.
Legato lessons are there, you just have to learn them biggrin.gif wink.gif

If you want you can even start practicing sweeping. The earlier you start doing i - the better for you.


Basically, whatever Alternate Piking lesson you come across - you can practice it.

I didn't know you could start pracitcing sweep picking so early, i thought it was more an advanced guitarist technique thing. But aren't some lessons here more for the advanced players?

Some of them are for more advanced players. But Sweeping Basics can easily be practiced by a beginner. Don't limit yourself - give it a try! smile.gif

like what major and minor scales should i know? - or should i just know all of them A-G#?

- also just to make sure with the scales, i should know them all over the neck of the guitar not just in one spot...
and im also getting a guitar this weekend ( im currently barrowing my dads ), any suggestions on what i shout get for the style i like to play? -- im currently looking at an Ibanez similar to yours except without the handle in the side and without the vine style on the neck

Any Ibanez will be good!

There is no particular scale to know - the more you know the better. Learn scale boxes for major scale and you'll know all major scales all over the neck.

There is a lesson called IONIAN SCALE BOXES - you could start there. It may look difficult but it's not that difficult.

Of course you should be familiar with the whole neck so you'll be practicing scales all over the neck!
