Hello everyone!

I'm Jorge, aged 24, originally from Chile, and have been playing the guitar for about 4-5 years. Unfortunately I haven't exactly advanced much, being that I've never really put much effort into learning to play the guitar, as I'm actually a drummer. Well, was anyway. smile.gif

I've always watched videos of people playing awesome music with the guitar, and secretly wanting to be as skilled as them. Having found guitarmasterclass.net on the internet a couple of days ago, I decided to brush the dust of my guitar and start to see how far I actually can go. Having played for so long, I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I'm just learning how to read tabs. Don't get me wrong, I can still play, just not read tabs. wink.gif Having surfed around a bit through the website I've noticed that I know tids and bits of everything, but not everything about something. I guess you can never fully know everything, but that certainly won't stop me from trying!

So - for everyone bothering to read this post, I need some advice. I've found these two videos that I'm currently practicing:

http://www2.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-gui...nger-work-out/#

http://www2.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-gui...ciante-lesson2/

I just signed up to the site yesterday, so haven't practiced much. But is there anything else that I really should know? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what steps I should follow, what videos I should watch, to get the most out of my practice? If you have suggestions for a practice-session I'll accept it with a great thank you!

From what I've seen of the site so far, it's great! I hope to talk to you again soon! And if there's anything I can help with, even with my limited knowledge, let me know!
