First a little background on myself, then a question or two.
I begged my mother for a guitar after watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan in 1964. It took months but in 1965 I had my first guitar and started taking lessons. I took lessons for 2 years but other interests in life began to crowd out my practice time and I eventually didn't play much at all.
Over the years I would pick up my guitar for a while then lose interest. I was always able to do chord progressions for sing alongs at church functions and some finger picking (Stairway to Heaven, Classical Gas, etc) But I never learned how to do lead or solo guitar. And I never practiced enough to be as good as I should be after over 50 years of playing.
Dec 1 of 2015 was my last day at work. The day of my retirement party then go home early with full pay.
In March I posted on the Buy Sell and Trade Facebook page from where I worked that I was interested in buying an electric guitar. 2 days later a guy brings a pristine 2008 Mexican Strat and Cube 30 amp over and tells me to hold onto them for a couple of weeks and if I am interested he will take $350 for the both of them.
Since then I have been working at learning how to play guitar solos. I would really like to be able to improvise.
A few weeks ago I discovered JamPlay. I bought a month membership to see what it was about then I paid for a year.
Here is my issue and my question. I absolutely LOVE the blues, I discovered Eric Maddis Electric Blues course, I have been through about 40 lessons in that series. I try to get a working ability with each concept before moving onto the next concept. But then I run across all these songs I want to learn, I learned 16 tons and am working on Oya Coma Va. Then I see a playing in the style of George Harrison, I am up to the lick library in that one. But I also see Rockabilly lessons. Should I complete one series before looking at another? Does it hurt to jump around and pick up samples of everything I want to learn? Oh lets not forget the technique of the week stuff. Where do I throw that into my practice time?
Currently I practice 2 to 3 hours a day. After I walk my dog I practice my project song for half and hour. Later in the day I will pick up my guitar and work on whatever lesson series I am working on. Then later I pick up my guitar and just noodle around with whatever licks I recently learned trying to work them with the ones I already know into something that sounds musical to me (basically just have some unstructured fun time).
