my problem is that i'm stuck!

I have masterd the beginner lessons and I practis them every day but the solo and riff lessons are to difficult so i don't really know what to do, i fell like the easy lessons is too easy and the hard is too hard.

what shall I do? I still play every day and my motivation is still there but I can't seem to find my place here.

The lessons that are difficult for you are the best ones to work on. Once a lesson is easy for you, you don't gain too much by drilling on it every day....that's just maintenance. Your best bet is to start working on the more difficult lessons. If you're a beginner, and you're looking to do some lead work and some riffing, I'd highly recommend checking out the theory section and at least learn how the major scale operates, and anything in there about pentatonics. Then tackle the pentatonic video lessons. Take it VERY slowly at first, you need to develop accuracy before you worry about speed. When you have a problem or a question, just post it on GMC and someone will help you out.

Good luck and enjoy! biggrin.gif

Good advice - and I'd like to emphasize the speed aspect - you can play anything if you slow it down enough. Once you have it at a speed you can manage, practice it every day until you can play it fast enough ...

When I was done with the beginner lessons I started on the 1on1 pentatonic lessons.

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/One_on_on...onic_scale1.htm

They are great, I think that would be a good place to continue.

Wow, I did not even know that lesson was there and I still can not find it from the main page. I would have never noticed it had you not posted that link. What section of the site is it in? Anyway, Thanks.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

In Kris' 1on1 section, page 2 or 3 I think. Just press "Earlier 1on1 lessons" all the way up/down on the site smile.gif
