    Practice Advice

    Howdy folks! This will be my first post here so go easy if it's in the wrong section. (i did try to do some research before posting)

    Scroll down for bulleted short version!

    Anyways, I've been playing guitar for about 12 years now. My style is a cross between 80's thrash and i suppose a more progressive styled metal. (I'm trying to give my music a very classical base with ridiculous technical shredding and i'm not really getting very far on my own.)

    I own a few different books and cds. But, to be quite frank, they're intensely boring and i hate using them. My schedule prevents me from taking lessons and i severely lack motivation.

    I guess what i'm trying to say is that, I want to get MUCH better and have no clue what the hell i'm doing to make it there. So, i came here for help making a practice regimen that will get me where i want to go.

    • 12 Years playing Guitar
    • Self-Taught
    • Have books / cds i hate using
    • Odd schedule / can't take lessons
    • Lack of Motivation
    • Need help creating a plan / regimen

    • 80's Thrash Metal
    • Progressive Metal
    • Like to make my riffs sound classical in a heavy metal sence.
    • END-GOAL be able to compose and play like Dave Mustaine

    Well, of course!
    But, i work 50-60 hours a week and the motivation is hard to find these days.
    Plus, when you don't know how you should be practicing it's hard to make real progress.. ..and when you're not making any noticeable progress in your playing you lose even more motivation.
    It's a vicious cycle lol
