I'd go back and teach myself Beat it, Bark at the moon, Hallowed be thy name, Like a virgin plus a few others and then live happily ever after as a prominent song writer biggrin.gif

Id tell myself "learn the harmonic minor and diminished scales. And practice tasteless shredding and pedal note riffs" Oh and some tapping arpeggios. Oh and Id teach me songs from death metal albums released in late 08-present... Thus Id win the game. biggrin.gif

I would go back way before i started playing (to when i was like 8 or something) and tell myself to start playing !! I left it till i was like 25 till i started playing - in my eyes a big disadvantage sad.gif

When I look in the mirror I see a face-melting guitar shredder.... maybe my mirror tells the future?

If I went back in time, I would definitely tell myself not to buy that much gear biggrin.gif

jk, I would probably tell myself to practice more chords, arpeggios, and harmony theory

Well said smile.gif I'd be of the same mind. I might add in to tell myself, "Spend as much time practicing as you can spare, you will never regret the time you spent with your guitar".

If you could go back in time to when you first started playing guitar and give yourself advice on what to learn and which direction to take with the guitar, what would it be?

I would go back in time and tell myself to learn the major scale all over the fretboard, and also to learn how the intervals in the major scale relate to the chords in major key tonality music. Also, I would tell myself to practice learning songs, riffs, melodies, etc by ear as much as possible.

What would you go back and tell yourself?
