Pot "guitar god club"

I'm sure you've heard of it, containing the guitar scale system and I think 6 other websites. Do any of these work? Idk anyone who wants to pay that much. Scale system is About $200 i think. They work?

Nope. None of these systems work. The only thing that's going to get you good (aside from some inborn predisposition to dexterity) is lots of practice. Those systems offer a "get good fast" concept but can't deliver anything. Don't waste your money.

You can learn everything they teach you better yourself. As long as you can find the appropriate information and study.

However, if you want lessons and your going to PAY for them, then go get 1 on 1 lessons with an instructor. Someone there in the same room with you can teach you so much more.

Give me $200 and I'll hop on Google and find every scale you can think of and show you how to play it.

pretty much. you cant really speed up muscle memory. being good is pretty much a by product of muscle memory which takes time to learn. so you can learn all these concepts, and some might be good and some might actually help you learn, but they wont actally make you a physically better player.

Actually, studies have shown that sleeping can speed up the consolidation of "muscle memories".
However, TS, ignore all these courses that promise quick results for a hefty price. It doesn't work.

^ Every single pay-for course on the internet is rubbish in my opinion. They can't help you apart from give you exercises - but you can get all the exercises you want here on UG.

Someone that can't see your problem will likely not be able to help you like a real-life tutor could. I'd suggest spending your $200 on a tutor you can go and see face-to-face. Even if you can't afford a tutor after that, if he's any good he will give you a lot of good tips and will boost your playing.
