Hey & welcome to GT!

There are 3 primary categories of tutorials on GT.

1. Core Learning System. This is an integrated step by step curriculum of lessons that start at absolute beginner. The idea here is to isolate & streamline the cirriculum all in one step-by-step process.

There are 3 versions of the Fundamentals courses. Anders is the most recently published. Lisa did the previous version, which you can find by clicking on the button Old Course With Lisa under the landing page video. Or here are the direct links.

Mine is the oldest set.

If you beyond the fundamental stages, you might enjoy material from one of the Style courses.

2. Song Catalog. This is all the songs GT has the secured the rights to teach.

3. Instructor Directories. These are more specialized topics, sometimes organized in sub-categories. You can view the instructors & their specialties here.

For example, I have over a thousand lesson on various topics, organized by topic or focus. In general, these are for diving deeper into any given concept or technique. They are not necessary per se to the streamlined core learning system, but will help once a student develops more interest in a certain style or technique.

For example, if you want to know more about improvisation I have this collection of tutorials.

If you want to learn how to play every major & minor triad & inversion all over the fretboard. I have this collection of tutorials.

If you want to dive deeper into finger picking, you'll find a lot of that in the acoustic course, and also in Lisa's directory. Scroll down about halfway & you'll see a big category of fingerpicking from beginner to intermediate.

If you have a question about a certain topic, or how to do some skill, please ask! The GT database of lessons is enormous! That's one reason the forum is here, to help you find the resources you desire.

[quote=aliasmaximus]I can read music (both standard notation and tabs) and really dig blues. I can play a lot of chords (open and barre) but pretty weak on theory. Any suggestions on where to jump in?

This collection of tutorials is focused on music theory.

Other than that, it depends on your skill level & goals. What can you already do? What can't you do that you want to learn? What kind of music do you want to play?

If you post more detailed info about your situation, then I can try to point you in the right direction. Hope that helps!
