George25 Just getting started
Default Jamplay , book methods vs my own routine

Maybe it has been ask before. But what you guys think of making my own routine vs method books, jamplay, guitartricks etc..

What i know: is my open chords, powerchords, basic strumming techniques, basic rock/metal rhythm techniques. Intro to some songs i like.

My main goals: be versatile guitarist, have a trained ear, know the fretboard inside out and read music.

Small goals: wanna play a full song( rhythm and lead), have rhythm and lead techniques down, know how to improvise with the basic scales over a backing track.

So, will jamplay, guitartrick or a method book help? Or should i make my own routine?

Whichever method you choose, it will only be as good as the effort you put into it. I'm generally terrible when creating my own lessons- unless I'm working on a cover.

One upside to online lessons- they hone in on specific skill-sets you want to attain.

For your short term goals, youtube is a great resource.
