I want to get serious with guitar but I never know what to practice or anything. I can plays bits and pieces of a bunch of different songs but it gets boring practicing the same riffs over and over again. I've looked into scales and stuff for a while but I just can't understand them.

I know all of the notes for the minor pentatonic scale but I don't understand how to use it. Like, do I just add notes in between or what? It is really confusing and whenever I go on sites it doesn't seem like they explain this. I have like 14 hours everyday so If I have scales to practice or something I definitely have the time for it.

Since you have the time you should invest in lessons for atleast a month so you have someone who could explain the basics of theory to you at the very least. When I had my old electric I took lessons and had a basic understanding to learn theory, I only took lessons for about 2 months.

To be honest though you kind of pick up theory as you go along. I've never sat a lesson in my life and never intended to learn theory, it just snuck up and grabbed me from time to time when I learnt about what happened when I did certain things.

That's absolutely untrue.

James Hetfield is one of the best rhythm players around, and doesn't know hardly any theory.

Not to mention the already stated fact that being famous doesn't even mean you're necessarily good.

And knowing some theory is definitely a byproduct of becoming more skilled anyway.
