Welcome buddy. smile.gif

Try some lessons. I think you could start by searching for major scale lessons and start from low level ones. When you do a lesson, study how they are phrased so you can apply them on your own songs too later. Doing covers, learning by ear is the best way to go ahead to build a library of licks which you can tweak and use it in your own style later on. smile.gif

Cheers!

Yep, learn some easy songs that you love. You need to give yourself a reason to play the guitar, to enjoy it.

When you run into problems with a song, post a topic here and we'll help out.

PS Practice to a metronome.

Welcome to GMC wink.gif

I suggest you check some of Lian's metal lessons, there are some easy and beginner-oriented ones among them.

Hi and welcome to GMC ! smile.gif

The guys have said the same things I would have said which is to choose things that inspire you. As guitarists we are always learning and in order to stay motivated and prevent getting bored it is crucial to have a big enjoyment factor in our practice.. so allow yourself to spend time learning metal and rock songs and lessons.

Gitarrero just mentioned Lian which is a good recommendation.. he has loads of lessons based on different genres of metal..

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/instructor/Lian-Gerbino/

Scales and theory are important but they only become useful when you know why you're learning them.. when you're forging your skill in something new, it's more important to just play and hone your rhythm ability and chord changes etc.. do something first and then learn how you did it later smile.gif

Welcome aboard man! smile.gif


Don't worry, all the things you practice will be very helpful to you later on, just so you know that you are not wasting time learning something non-important. Everything is important! smile.gif

I would advise that you work a bit on the pentatonic scale, if you are into G major scale atm, you could do G major pentatonic boxes over that particular pattern, so you realize the connection between G major and G major pentatonic. Try to learn some theory too. If you are learning G major scale on the neck, it might be a good idea to understand what is a major scale and how to use it!

Start by learning what is a major scale, what are intervals within the scale (spaces between the notes), learn G major key, and learn where the notes are on the fretboard. All this knowledge will be very important later on.

I suggest not spending more than 10-20 mins per day for this tho. For other things to practice, I recommend arpeggios, chords, songwriting, bending, vibrato etc.

Use the search option on GMC, and try to find some interesting lessons. We have tons of lessons that are updated all the time, and cover lots and lots of styles and areas. If you need help along the way, or help creating a practice routine, just let us know! smile.gif

Hey there! Welcome to GMC!

On top of the advice given by everyone (which is very good - if you extract the essence out of everyone's words, you could already have a little practice do's and don'ts biggrin.gif) I would only add that, once you master something (a scale, arpeggio, chord progression) you should record yourself and listen to the recording the second day - if you like the way it sounds, you can move on, if not, record until it's perfect and you can feel comfortable with sharing your recording with others. In time, you'll realize that you have become a very good and detail attentive player that can perform his things well interpreted and accurate! Cheers and if you need to ask anything, please go ahead wink.gif

Hey man!! Welcome to the site! It has been difficult to me to pronounce your nickname at the Videochat! laugh.gif
It is ok if you start learning some covers to see how the scales are applied.
Enjoy the site!
