yo fullaz. I'm looking to improve my guitar playing a great deal. I've been playing for 8 years now (im 17), and I've reached as far as I can go without learning this stuff. I've realised that after 8 years I should definitely be waaaaaaay better than I am now... I've plateaued and it feels horrible. I know about rhythmic notation and basic stave notes and i can sweep pick 5 string maj patterns pretty good, but I need to know where to start with learning intervals and scales and modes and stuff. I've done internet searches but its all a bit daunting. Any help?
if it helps, I play in a brutal/technical death metal band?
