The best lead guitar lessons?

I would still class myself as a beginner guitarist, who knows his open and barre chords, but not much else. I can play a few easy guitar solos but I really want to learn the fretboard and how a solo is pieced together etc, and ofcourse, how to play lead guitar itself.

I have been using lessons from Marty Schwartz and Justin Sandercoe to learn my chords etc. I'm now looking for some lead guitar lessons that are very structured, starting from the basics and moving upwards.

Could you guys please recommend some guitar lessons to me? I don't mind if they are online lessons or a dvd set.

Thanks guys!

EDIT: Just had a look at licklibrary.com. They offer quite a lot of different dvd's for resonable prices (Around 20.) Anybody used licklibrary before?

The best thing you can do, is get a guitar teacher.

For what you want you need to learn theory, the major scale, natural minor scale, pentatonics major and minor, how chords are created etc.

And that's just the basic stuff.

If its something you stick at in a few months you will be much improved with a greater knowledge of music.

But you definitely need a teacher. I've been playing years and when I got a teacher I took off. Find a good teacher and stick with them.

That's my advice

Shallow and pedantic.
