I can't criticize anything here Leonard, it all looks good to me ! smile.gif

Just beware of times when you feel bored and it starts to feel like work instead of enjoyment. It's good to change things around sometimes just to keep variety. You don't necessarily even have to change exercises but maybe change the amount of time you devote to each one sometimes smile.gif

Don't take life too seriously and practice like I do. The thing is, I should probably play my violin instead of my guitar. tongue.gif

I do the practice routine contained in the link three days out of the week. The other four days consist of the same schedule cut into halves.

http://picksnlicks.com/Guitar%20Lessons/Ex..._workout_1.html

That is my current routine. I substitute the Exercises section for Todd's Weekly Lessons. It fits perfectly. I Substitute my Sight Reading for practicing on a drum pad, and I substitute my Music Theory for Piano(I feel that it will be easier for me to learn theory and Piano at the same time, since it gives me something to apply it to).

DO NOT DO THIS.

Use it as a basis for a practice routine. You will stay sane that way. wink.gif

EDIT: Yours looks great, by the way. The hardest part of chasing any endeavour is putting in the time. It is the same with fitness. Don't give up, and you will see rapid improvement!
