I started learning guitar on line in March 2014, in April I found a local highly recommended teacher. We spent about a month on open Chords, 2 weeks on notes in the first position. Then we moved to Fingerstyle, which I like. Each week I get a challenging new song to learn, we play through it the following week then start a new song. I practice and hour per day and 2-3 hours on both Saturday and Sunday. With the songs I need to learn that is about all I get to practice.

My questions are: Am I missing a lot of basics this way, Can I learn to play other styles using fingerstyle as a learning platform? I feel like I am going through the motions, but am I learning the right stuff.

I know guitar is a challenge that takes time and a lot of practice, but it will be with it in the end. Thanks
