I want to learn to play Rock/Hard rock in general and acoustic stuff but I dont know where to go or to start.

I can.

Play chords fluently
Read tabs
and i know the a minor pentatonic scale

yea thats like barly anything.. but I cant stand reading tutorials on the internet not knowing what im doing.

What do I need to learn? also.. what are some good ways to practice?

I really tried to learn scales but got confused after memorizing the a minor pentatonic..

I kind of posted a thread like this earlier but less clear.

try learning songs,
do you use acoustic or electric?

learn songs from your favourite bands
I see you're not using the UG black theme

You don't need a video at all, you just need start learning some songs and studying the techniques and melodic ideas they use. Watching a video is no guarantee that you'll know what you're doing, you still need to learn things for yourself.

i think learning the CAGED system will help you alot in regards to scales and understanding the guitar in general......one of the first things i learned with CAGED is pretty much an easy ass way to play the pentatonic scale in any key. so yeah since you said the scale **** is confusing...this may be the way?

i used the bill edwards book fretboard logic....he really just jumps into it right away and easily explains it....before i read that i was like you and i didnt really get it either. now it makes a bit more sense
