Simply to have fun. Along the way there's a lot of short term goals which usualy for me is to learn a certain song.

I've kinda fallen off the bandwagon for trying to work out songs for now. Being a newbie, I started working on Back in Black, but I don't have the reach so that's on the shelf for now. I never wanted to be one of those guys that can bang out the first 10 seconds of a hundred different songs. There's about a dozen different easier songs that I find myself wanting to try, but i'm not going to do it.

I'm working on my hand strength and control right now. I'm doing hammer-on/pull-off exercises, doing some of the reach/strength exercises from the petrucci video and working on Pavel's Alternate Picking lessons. My current short goal is to get my hands to do what I want within reason, so that when I try to learn a song I'm not fighting with the mechanics of forming notes on the guitar like I do now.

Longer term, I don't know yet. Broadly speaking, I'd like to be comfortable with just picking up a guitar and playing....thinking of something and being able to bring it out of the instrument. Not a good goal as it's kinda vague, but I'm not at the point where I can look that far out yet.

I'm with mattacuk. A while back I came across this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdCdoPvx_ok, and it completely blew my mind. Right there I said to myself, I want to do that. I want to get up on the stage at my local bar during open mic, and just rock out like that. That would bring me the greatest pleasure smile.gif

I play guitar for the enjoyment of music, not because I plan to be a star one day like Johnson or Vai or something. I feel that having a goal in playing, or real life, is worthless because your giving yourself a path, I like to find my own path as I go along the road. May sound stupid but I see it as having your parents set your life goals at a young age.

I had to have something to keep me out of trouble. Since I have always wanted to play the guitar I figured I could focus all my energy, good and bad on one thing and so far it has worked. The guitar is really all I want to do now, but I really do not have any long term goals other than to be able to play and not have it sound like crapola.

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

This is my current Goal....

Muhammad Suicmez - Fermented Offal Discharge Solo

I just want to learn the whole thing, i know alot of it now, and once i can play the whole thing through by memory, and have it down clean, im gonna spend like uh....probably a year or so speeding it up gradually, since its full of arpeggios, tapping, and legato, im getting excellent practice.

Just wish i could play it up to his speed dry.gif

Someday i will.....far far away.....

First of Pavel you need to be playing live. You're way to good to not be entertaining others!!!! My goal is to be able to improvise in my church's worship music with lick's and solos. It hasn't been easy for me to apply the leassons learned @ GMC to real music. With practice I will conquer!
