Hey mate! I am really glad you look at me as your goal and it's great! Thanks!
Don't hurry! I am in to serious practicing for 5 years now so take it easy and learn guitar step by step. Start by learning Kris's lessons for beginners, than learn his alternate picking lessons. After that there are loads of AP lessons, Rock Rhythm And Solo lessons, riffing stuff.
I suggest you start with Kris's AP lessons as they are pretty simple and suitable for beginners!
