ok so i've been..."piddling" i guess, with the guitar for several years now.

but, I've come to a problem.

I've realized that i dont really know how to play the guitar.

i read tabs. thats it. so i just like, learn a song or two a month by tablature...and thats it.

I'm quite good actually, i mean i can play most anything but the insane stuff

but my playing is hollow and has no structure..i'm just playing whatever tab i memorized

so, i've come to the conclusion that i just need to start over.

what should i do? take lessons? learn how to read music? music theory?!

i just dicked around on the guitar for three years now and you sound better than me already but if i ever started over id take lessons man

Wait, your dick is in a chick's ass, and you're complaining.

Its a sad, sad day.
Scales, so that you may open the door to improvising and jamming. And theory will help for sure.
take 2 or 3 lessons, to get he basics, scales, a little bit of theory, if you don't want to learn to read don't, try to get a friend to jam with who is much better than you, thats wat i do, he gives me free lessons, it's mostly dicking around, and us playing random stuff, and then some teaching, ten me complaining it's hard, then him encouraging me, and then next time i have it good and we're both happy, just try to get some guitar boddy's and some lessons and you'll see, you get alot better quicker
