I just bought a guitar a week ago, and being already 17 and the last in my family to learn guitar, the process so far has been somewhat discouraging.

I've been practicing about 2-4 hours a day using Doug Marks' "Metal Method" but i keep getting the paranoid sense that i'm not practicing the RIGHT stuff to get to where landing strings and picking is more natural.

What excersises or actions should i do to get to where i'm headed?
or will doing Doug's Metal Method (practising each lesson for about 4 hours each) be enough?

Thanks for any tips, advice, or workds of encouragemant
