Hi there guys

I've been playing guitar for a while now but never seem to be getting anywhere, might be lack of discipline on my part, but it gets me annoyed when I can't play things etc.

Could anybody suggest some songs or techniques to improve my picking, specifically the left hand (fret hand) as I'm having trouble hitting the notes.

A song that I'm trying to learn at the moment is The Blackout - I'm a riot your a f**king riot

It shouldn't be that hard at all, but I'm having problems with the picking.

Edit: Oh also the title says double jointed thumb, its stopping me from holding the pick properly, maybe an issue?
