I have a thing for Rock music,but I also enjoy some Jazz and even some Metal.My favorite guitarist would be David Gilmour and Jimmy Hendrix would be a close second.

Well my curent scheldue looks like this at the moment:

1)Stretches
2)A simple 1-2-3-4 excersise at 65 bpm and after that some variations of this excersise(1-2-1-3-1-4 etc) using alt. picking
3)Finger Independence (https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guitar/fingers-independence-I/)(at least i try to do it)
4)Meomorizing the A Minor Pentatonic(and playing it in all positions)
5)Basic Chord changes(A-Am-G-C-E-Em-D-Dm)
6)Music Staff Reading

These take up about 1 hour.

Any suggestions?I really feel that my scheldue needs something more to be complete at the moment..

I would suggest changing number 2) for something else that not only warms you up but is also more musical. Perhaps some simple alternate picking licks or runs.

I've always found (and I'm sure the guys here will agree with me) that I have to keep practice enjoyable and interesting otherwise I lose my enthusiasm. So my main advice would be to always try to include things that you enjoy and are interested in learning, to avoid making your practice routine clinical and sterile smile.gif
