I am brand new to this site. Actually this is my first "formal" guitar training I will be receiving, as I have been playing guitar for 16 years self taught. I am 28 years old and ready to get to the skill level I "should" be at by now.
The problem is I peaked years and years ago skill-wise, and have been playing the same old things over and over for about 7 years. I decided it's time, and that I owe it to myself to improve my skills as a guitar player.
My skills are very basic, and I don't know any of the "whys". I have basically just learned off of tabs. I don't know the notes, or the chord names or anything. I have never even learned a single scale. (I get embarrassed to say how long I have been playing, considering I have the skills of a newbie) But not entirely as I am very familiar with the guitar and I can pick, and fret well I just need guidance on what's next and to learn the whys!
Thanks for reading my rambling rant. If you have any suggestions for a guitar player like me, let them fly at me! I'm open for all suggestions.
Good day fellows!
