learn as many styles as you can become good to excellent w/in the guitar world ... learn basic ii v I's IN JAZZ AND HOW TO SOLO OVER THEM... EVEN SIMPLER IS LEARNING (I IV V's) in basic blues progressions and develop blues chops , REAL BLUES CHOPS ARE NOT PLAYING RANDY RHOADS LICKS THAT ARE IN THE PENTATONIC SCALES !!! YOU NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS TO PROGRESS... learn STYLES AS BLUESY AS BUDDY GUY , ERIC CLAPTON AND BB KING , also more difficult blues stylings of JIMI HENDRIX , S.R.V. , DANNY GATTON (whose really more country flash w/ some dangerous chicken picking) , learn music theory , not just diatonic harmony but non-diatonic harmony which is very useful in jazz... not every progression will make sense in terms of major key and relative minor keys , GOD there's so much more man , chord modulation , chord substitution , learn intervals and the relationships between the modes in parrallel and non parralell ways...

teach guitar , do session work for k.d. lang , or any bunch of artists in need of good session guitarists...
