God, well yep, I'm offically labeled as a noob now, but I'm proud of it! tongue.gif

Anyways, since I got addicted to my guitar only 2 months ago, I still can't find a way to practice well.. And I'm getting tired of doing the same things all the time, which isn't alot.. Like a little riff of what, 3-5 power chords, a little solo, etc,... If anyone has got a good schedule for a beginner... Please post it here. I got about 3 hours and more free a day. But imagine that I've got like 2 hours.

My specs:
I am able to do:
-Hammer on's
-Pull off's, but they need alot practice still..
-Easy bending
-Power Chords
-Open Chords
-Barré Chords
(with power&barré, I don't know the letters for em.. So I base myself on tabs)
-1 scale lol, the blues one.. (58 57 57 57 58 58) and I fail to go trough it on high-speed, no clue how to train it..

I think that's about it..

Thanx in advance.

I am going to say, practice for some time simply having fun and playing your favorite songs, this is the best for a beginner, I could do this for hours as a beginner, but if you want to be more disciplined than I, do it for an our or so, and then start practicing technique.

For soloing I strongly recommend starting with easy pentatonic licks with little bends, hammer ons and pull offs, it is easier and more fun to practice these things using interesting musical ideas.

I think David Walliman's lesson on slow pentatonics is great for beginners

Have fun

You can check out my pentatonic workshop mate. There you will learn a pentatonic scale, which is something you should learn if you haven't already. Cheers smile.gif
