Quoted from iamabearsfan:
Anyone ever used GuitarTricks.com or JamPlay.com?
Both look fairly advanced and a lot of tools on them.
I found this YouTube review of both of them...
Looks like about $140/year after you use discount codes.
Going back to your original post, are you really starting out cold? That is, playing for the first time? If so I still think the best way to start is with some face to face lessons. Getting in front of someone experienced who can observe you and get you set up correctly with the basics will be a tremendous help in giving you something to build on. If you start on your own by just grinding it out you might set in some bad habits that will be hard to get rid of later. Don’t ask me how I know this.
It would also be good to know what your goals are. There are so many paths to go down, and while the basics apply across the board, the style you want to learn is a big factor. You said you have acoustics, and a lot of the suggestions here, while great, really won’t apply to acoustic playing. Using 2 string power chords isn’t really going to work well on an acoustic.
To continue learning, the internet has absolutely exploded with content for learning guitar. There is so much out there you could never go through it all. A lot of it is paid and a lot is free. I took a fair amount of lessons from several teachers over the years and it was very helpful. I was able to progress to a good degree, although I am not claiming to be a great player by any means. However I noticed that once you reach a certain plateau of execution the lessons often deteriorate to you asking how to play your favorite song and your teacher showing it to you note by note. This even happened with my last teacher, after I finally learned to play full scales instead of pentatonics I got into learning all the songs I always wanted to play. Finally one day my teacher came right out said to me, hey I don’t mind doing this if you want to pay me, but I’m not teaching you anything new any more. You’re just paying me to learn a new song. You can get that for free from the internet. And he was right. For the past few years I have learned a lot just from what is out there. There are a ton of sites with paid content that are no doubt great. But for myself I have found that there is enough totally free stuff to keep me occupied for a looong time. The main issue with the free stuff is that some of it is junk. So you need to be able to tell what is junk and what is good and accurate stuff. You can do this once you have some experience.
In the end, you gotta practice. A lot. But it’s fun stuff.
