ive been playing for like a year now almost and i taught myself and i kinda learned playing backwards, i started off learning scales and stuff and i can solo pretty well but im kinda hurtin when it comes to playing chords , i know most of the basic chords but i feel like i need to learn some other ones so i can get off this music plateau ive been stuck on for awhile ..i wanna be able to make up decent chord progressions and maybe start writting my own stuff but im gonna need help ..any suggestions?
learn theory.

Saying the Red Hot Chili Peppers have no talent is like saying Guy Fawkes didn't have an epic mustache.
