Hello everyone

Ok heres my problem
My grades are terrible and i cant get any sort of lessons before i get them up
so im stuck with online lessons
Im trying to make the most out of it
so ive decided to put together this practice routine.

Warm Ups
Scales,Arpeggios,and Modes
Chords and Voicings
Technique(which is divided into 4 parts)
-Sweep picking
-Tapping
-Legato
-String SKipping
Improvising
Sight Reading
Theory
& Songs and solos.

Im a intermediate guitarist and ive covered the basics and the genre i like to play is metal.

The questions im trying to ask are:
-Does this schedule along with online lessons and books look like it will help me better myself to become more advanced?
-Is there any online lesson site that requires pay that are just as good as real lessons?
-Are there any lessons,articles, or maybe a site that someone could point out to me that covers all these things in my schedule thoroughly?


Any response would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

id go heavily on theory, mainly because you have basic technique, Theory is alot more important if your looking to make something of music, because you can apply it to everything music related... say do hour and a half theory, practice applying it to guitar, and a piano if you have one and then spend another 30 mins, or an hour on techniques.. i focused an hour a day for about 3 weeks to learn how to sweep and it payed off eventually.

REMEMBER ! TAKE BREAKS DURING PRACTICING ! 15 MINS EVERY 45 mins or so

Check out ''SPEED MECHANICS FOR LEAD GUITAR by Troy Stetina'' its a book, can get it off amazon
