Once you know your chords move on to theory, reading music, learn a few classical pieces, then onto song writing, playing what you want to play.

If yuo're teaching yourself, it's up to you. I teach students and all the ones who come to me after teaching themselves have bad posture and technique. So make sure you work on that.

Let me know if you want to know anything else, or hit me up on MSN

what style do you want to play then?



I would like to aim in the direction
of Blues ~ Metal...

maybe if i become good enough. . . .
find a way to combine the two

my best advice is just to make sure you have a structured practice for around an hour everyday where you sit down and practice something new or something your not that good at yet.

just play Load and Reload backwards, but make sure can sing while playing, don't have an emo bitch of a drummer, and have a bass player who doesn't wet the bed.

that is all

just practice what you're learning. if you're learning scales, practice them over and over and over again on different areas of the neck. get a print out of a fretboard and look at it while you do scales in different keys so you start to become familiar with the fretboard and the notes you are using for specific scales in specific keys.. start to understand some theory, at the very least intervalic structure of the major scale and how everything derives from that. start to count intervals as you practice your scales. gain speed and knowledge using your scales. This should be enough to keep you busy for your first couple of months. in between all this, learn some songs or solos in tab to keep your spirits up. look up some easy licks and do them over and over and over. start slow then build up speed doing the same scales and licks over and over and over...repetition is key. work out those fingers. look up Steve Vai's 10 hour workout tab. these are good drills for speed and fret recognition. good luck.

Thank you all for you usless and helpful coments

my server chrashed sorry for taking so long to reply.

you all have been very helpful.

i have almost 100pg.s that ive gotten from UG so far...


and i've made to posters for my wall

one with 108 basic chords on it
and one with A-G bluse scales on it :/
even though i havnt gotten as far as pentatonic minor scales just yet.

but i guess you could say that im coullecting bits of everything...

something i might not even need. but i guess i'll have to see
when i get there hey?

i don't know what your oppinion would be;

but i do believe that teaching myself how to play, may be difficult but then again
the style that will end up popping out will be a verry unique one
lets just hope that its a good one aswell.......

Just because it's Unique doesn't mean it's good. There are teachers on this planet for a reason.

No, i'm not just talking myself up, I truthfully believe that teachers have a purpose, if you get a good one you will learn much quicker than learning on your own.
