Thank you to everyone who answered this! I feel like I'm in the same rut. Have a TruFire membership, but having trouble figuring out which classes to take to actually advance.Probably threads on this already - but I can't find them.
I've been playing for 25 years - and I'm still stuck. I can play all the barre chords, know the Pentatonic scale, can play some licks over blues and rock tracks - but I can't get to the next level. I want to be able to improve and solo over Rock (Rockabilly), and basic Jazz stuff.
I have many books - and I've looked at many videos - so many teachers with the "best" method out there. I'm so confused. And I've taken lessons from different teachers who all think their method is the best.
I'm really frustrated and confused. I love the guitar - but I can't stand lessons playing tab licks over Royalty Free music.
In my opinion - the best way to learn would be to learn songs that allow the student to progress and learn methods over popular rock songs that demonstrate the method of the lesson. "Today we're going to practice soloing over the I IV VII progressing using this song..."
I'm just stuck - I don't mind working from a book, with backing tracks - in fact I think I'd prefer it.
Recommendations would be very appreciated. Thanks
Will check out the Tim Lerch class, it sounds like a great recommendation.
