About a decade ago I decided I wanted to learn to play guitar.
So I bought one and downloaded a chord chart and tabs of songs I wanted to play.
In that sense I guess I know how to play since I know a lot of chords and so forth, but now I want to fill in the holes.
I would do private lessons, but I think thats better suited to someone starting fresh and also my schedule doesn't really allow for that.
Anyone know of any good online or DVD resources for my situation?
I want to know how to do scales.
I want to be unafraid of going deeper down the neck.
I want to know what makes a chord "suspended" and so forth.
I just want to be a real guitar player dammit.
What should a lad do?
