Hi I'm a new guy here. I came across this really interesting site and decided to give it a go. I've been having problems lately with my guitar learning, or at least I feel like I have no idea where I should go next. I've been playing awhile and I have taught myself everything I know, and I just feel like I am uncertain on what I'm doing lately. I think I need some direction on where to go from here. I am very dedicated to playing my guitar all day and night, but that's not going to be much help if I'm only travelling along a never-changing straight line. So I figured I would start a thread for myself to help out my guitar progression and maybe by some chance cover things that others may also wonder about but not even know what to ask.

So lemme start by asking what are some of the absolute fundamentals of increasing your progress on guitar? I already figured playing and playing and playing is a must, AND taking breaks to not strain or hurt myself and give my muscles time to rest (and build up strength?). I currently only practice a few things on guitar really and those are ....

  • Using those Right and Left hand warm up exercises from the "Rock Discipline" DVD
  • Playing 3 different scales over and over
  • Playing some chords that I also don't know the names of ....
  • Trying to practice parts of songs I never seem to finish....
  • Playing the simple 1-2-3-4 up and down the strings in different ways

Really from this point I seem pretty pathetic to myself. I feel I lack in things I know or understand maybe. I've basically only practiced in things that would increase my dexterity/strength/accuracy/Speed(although my speed is honestly lacking) and not learning a lot of things exactly. I guess I feel I can't/shouldn't learn any songs if I don't have the technique first.

What I would like to get out of all this

Speed and Accuracy (of course)
I would like to have a good routine for progression to increase my overall skill
Direction on where I should go/ what I should do
Learn anything and everything I can! I don't want to limit myself on just one thing or one idea. Everyone has input and I'm sure it will all be useful!

Well for now lets leave it at this and see where it goes!. Thanks ahead of time for any and all help! I do appreciate it. Also if there is anything I need to tell you guys as well to get a better understanding or put in something I may have left out lemme know. I'll check this post and update it regularly.
