Outlaw2112,
Sounds like you just need to organize your practice time and gear it towards what you want to learn, whether it be rhythm, lead, theory or whatever.

I try to do that, i usually start out with finger exercises and picking exercises.... then ill start looking at youtube and its over... ill start learning a song or learning licks and wont stop til i perfect it, and that could take the whole night

You need to come up with a long term plan. Maybe you want to learn to play on of Muris's lessons or another awesome lesson here on GMC. Then you would come up with a practice routine that would allow you to do that. Once you accomplish that then you move on to another goal. What lesson here on GMC would you love to be able to play? I am always working on a couple of Muris's lessons it seems like. laugh.gif

I want to get into the mtp!
I now have my guitar for 2 years but I never played it that good. I always start some lesson and after 2 days I quit it.

So I dont have any skills, I can play a few songs but that's almost nothing, my technique is really bad! If you ask me to play something for a video I dont know what. I'm a real beginner. smile.gif

I want to do this because I HAVE to practice this and only if I do this I'll get better!

I played acoustic more, I can do the basics but have to work on them very good and with coaching this will go much faster.

Do you play electric? What lesson have you started and quit and why? Did you get frustrated? Not know how to break it down? Some of these lessons can be intimidating and you really need to break them down into bite size pieces. A lot of these lessons will take you months/years to master so you need to start slightly above your ability and work from there.

Jup I play electric, I've started a few lessons for example the Blues licks lesson. I didn't get frustrated but I just dont have a good discipline and if I get a mentor this will get better because I'll be forced to know them.

I think what really helps is to really try and organize your practice time. If you have 1 hour, 2 hours etc. you need to organize your time. Learning guitar is and ENORMOUS task and you need to approach it methodically. If you could play any lesson on GMC which one would it be? Look at that lesson and decide what you need to do to accomplish it and I would even suggest starting to learn it. Biggest key is to sit down and organize your time for maximum results. I spent years as a "noodler". I have made more progress in the last 5 months than the last 5 years just by organizing my time and consistently practicing. Just my 2 cents!!

Ye you're totally right about the schedule but I just want some personal help, the whole point of the mtp. smile.gif
The schedule will come pretty soon, and with the mtp added it would go like a blast! smile.gif

I would love to join the MTP My name is Glen I am 20, I am in the military I just picked up a guitar for the first time earlier this week. I have wanted to learn guitar since I was nine but never had the money for it. I feel like I need more structure to my practicing. I have plenty of time to dedicate to learning /practice I am free from 4pm till midnight mon-friday. and allday on weekends. (not much to do on base). In the long run my goal is to learn to play metal. That doesnt mean I am not open to other styles. Some bands that I am in to are Lamb of God, Amon Amarth, Metallica, The Black Dahlia Murder, As I lay Dying, Opeth, and Unearth. Thats just a few I can go on all day but would be pointless. I would be greatly appreciative of whoever would be willing to take time out of there life to help me learn guitar. Here is a video I made after going though the power chords lesson the first day with my guitar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp9j7DcfZvE (It was out of tune my apologies.) Here are a couple of contact points to get a hold of me. E-mail [email protected]/ Aim glenwins12.

Well just in case it would be to late otherwise, I write my application now wink.gif

As You may know ( wink.gif ) my name is Marek. I played the guitar for few years already, but never practiced seriously/consistently. I rather learned the basic/barre chords to play and sing some songs, and also learned or tried to learn some favorite songs from tabs. Before joining GMC I was much more a classic guitar player ( so almost no guitar pick use and better skill at fingerpicking ), because when I bought my electric guitar, after few times playing on it, I concluded that I sucks horribly and will never be good dry.gif

Skill: here are links to my to latest uploads
1
2
I can play some tad more difficult lessons also.

Theory knowledge: what theory? blink.gif There are 6 strings on my guitar, pushing the string on one of the 24 frets will make the string to sound different than without pushing it...

Interest: improving at everything, I am not to excited about sweeping or tapping, but would also want to learn it a bit.

Music taste: well my favorite band is Blind Guardian. Still I love also many other bands, Metallica, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Demons and Wizards. All in all I am heavy/power/trash metal + rock + ballads lover.

Time: well really depends, there are weeks when I can work quite much, and some others when I will hardly be able to upload anything decent.

If its not too late I would like to get in this as well smile.gif .

My name is Andrew (surprise) and I am from Canada. I've been playing guitar on and off for about 3 years only really started playing within the last year. I really am starting to get serious about my playing and am currently searching for a bandmates in my area to start a group but the search is going very slow as my Musical tastes aren't very common in my area laugh.gif . I am going to structure the rest of my applications like Marek's as it was a nice concise layout laugh.gif .

Theory knowledge: I know the basics of theory i.e. the notes, what scales are, I know how they are constructed although sometimes I forget the formulas, I know where some of the notes are on the fretboard and can easily find them if I take a second to work it out. Know all the minor pentonic boxes and where the root notes are.

Interest: improving at everything, mostly composition and rhythm the lead stuff i've been working on all a long and I think I would benefit more from some phrasing, rhythm and theory the things kind of behind the scenes as opposed to light speed alt picking and sweeps laugh.gif

Music taste: This is where it gets tricky, I have diverse musical tastes. My favourite bands/Artists would inclue Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, James Brown, RHCP, Extreme, Jet, Lenny Kravitz, J.S Bach(not skid row tongue.gif ), Paginini, Mozart, any 80s hair metal, dream theater, rush, kansas, and sooo on .
I know this is a lot of different types of music but I really narrowed it down as far as I could haha

I am currently in class so I cannot post a vid, I will make one up later.
I can play Iron Maiden the trooper beginning to end ( both solos) keeping in time with the album as well as Crazy Train (studio) except there are a few hiccups while playing crazy train laugh.gif . I hope that this is some indication of skill level?
