Just found this page! I'm 20, 21 in January, and I've been playing guitar since I was probably about 14 or 15. I play both electric and acoustic. I also like playing bass and I'm trying to learn drums and piano when I can. I tend to play rock/metal music but I really enjoy many styles and attempt to play whatever I can. I also attempt to sing but I'm no where near comfortable with it. My vocal is around bass/baritone range. I feel comfortable singing Faith No more stuff if that helps paint the picture. 

Glad I found a group of fellow musicians!

I remember some of the "Rock School" stuff was pretty good for learning scales and licks back in the day.  Don't know if that stuff is still around.

Anyone have any suggestions on sources for self-learning guitar scales and a small amount of music theory?

Also I wanna be able to hear a song and play it and just jam along with other musicians.

Well I wanna play the blues, jazz, funk. Got the 12bar blues down I guess. Know how to play a couple songs and licks, and pentatonics, but don't know how to move on.

Cool group - I've played bass in Brooklyn, New York for 25 years - whoa, that sounds like I'm old.  I was recorded on Joe Whyte's "Heavyweight" album back in 1999 or thereabout.

Tim -

 

Yes. A good teacher will definitely get you moving. But judging by your comment, I'm wondering what your goals are? What do you want to do with the guitar? A teacher will help you do that..., once you figure it out.

 

But practice--deliberate daily practice--is part of the equation.

Is there any possibility of some of the guitar players helping me out, by teaching me a little bit more? I've been taught for about a year a little bit by a friend, but lost a lot of knowledge, because I haven't been practicing in MONTHS!

And I don't know where and how to start again. If I ever pick up my guitar I just try to "lick around" a bit.

Hey everyone, new here. A little about myself: I play bass, and my favorite styles are rock n' roll with a special love of "classic" rock and 80's metal. Many of you it seems paly multiple instruments, but I perfer to focus on the bass and try to master that. Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) is my favorite bassist.

To any other bassists out there, I started a group recently, manly bass players, so check that out if you want. Its not much-yet! SO I hope other bassists can help to make it better.
