I practise by listening to the song im playing a lot of times till i have it stuck in my head, then just site read part by part and add them all toghether in the end? Any other methods?

Listen to the kind of music that you would like to play, find tabs, learn them, eventually you'll learn a style and will become proficient at improvising in that style. And yea, that's a decent way to practice.

I usually make sure I know the song at least a bit and then open the tab and play along several times until ic an do it fairly well. If it's a song Im going to play alone (like just my acoustic and I) I usually learn the chords/picking pattern and then sing alogn to the recording several times.

Once I have it somewhat memorized I play it a few times without the recording and record myself to see if it soudns half decent.

Any song I'm serious about learning I usually learn in one evening to a playable level (without vocals) and then add in fine touches and vocals over the next week or two, and by the end of the month I can usually play it fairly well (because I tend to practice it every day once or twice since I learn it originally).

I'm still working on building up a larger repetoire though I've increased my repetoire by about 3 or 4 songs recently (originally I felt no need to actually have a repetoire).

i practise by reading the forum descriptions and realising that this forum isn't for questions about guitar.
