I'm new to the site and relatively new to guitar playing, and I have a few questions...

1.) I'm in a dilemma. I like to play songs, but I'm not good enough to play many songs, so I need to practice, except the practice method I am using is boring and dull, so I'm making no progress with practice and I can't play many songs... Is there a practice method out there that anyone has tried that is also fun?

2.) I'm confused about the theory regarding power chords, what I don't understand is the 5th and the octave, could someone explain it simpler, because my teacher hasn't really gone over musical terminology.

Hi K.T.Baby,

What style of songs are you interested in? I strongly believe in supporting your guitar learning by learning to play full songs. I have some lessons and tutorials that teach specific songs as a reinforcement for certain skills - but I do not know if they would be a good match for you in terms of your musical interests.

Tell us more, and we'll try to point you in the right direction.

I like to play any type of music, electric or acoustic (except for hip hop), but I like to play rock on my electric in particular (well, what little I actually can play, lol :p ).

Edit: If you need me to specify, I guess it would have to be rock.
