My Progress - Help Me Progress


This is a thread which I'm creating to monitor my progress. The general idea of this thread is to layout what I can currently do, what I am currently learning and what I would like to achieve. I will update this thread regularly. The main reason this thread was created is so that people can critique how I am learning and offer advice on how I can reach my goals. All help will be greatly appreciated.

Current Skill Level

Time playing guitar
18 Months.

What I have achieved so far
  1. Open Chords
  2. Barre Chords
  3. Minor Pentatonic Scale - Relatively Comfortable
  4. The G Major Scale - Need to revise the theory behind this

What I am currently practicing
I am not practicing anything specific at the moment. I would like to wait until I get a few responses to this thread with advice on how I can achieve my goals.

What I would like to achieve
I will keep this simple and clear-cut. My main goal is to be able to play the Guns N' Roses songs. I want to learn the scales which Slash uses throughout the Appetite and Use Your Illusions albums. I have been doing some research into Slash's lead playing and I believe he relies heavily on these scales:
  1. Minor Pentatonic
  2. Minor Pentatonic Blues Scale
  3. Major Pentatonic
  4. Major Pentatonic Blues Scale
  5. Natural Minor Scale
  6. Harmonic Minor Scale

I would also like to learn how to pick more fluidly to allow me to play songs such as Welcome To The Jungle and Paradise City.

Sorry, but this isn't your blog.

Feel free to post as many threads as you want for any specific queries or problems you may have - nobody else has "their own" thread for stuff like this and you don't need one either
Actually called Mark!
