Hey all, new member here I have been playing electric guitar for almost 6 years. After the first couple of years I realized that turning up the gain to 11 and stuttering through power chords I found on the internet wasn't making music. I gradually taught myself a little bit but was never really serious about practicing. People told me that I was pretty good but I wasnt satisfied.
Within the last two years I decided that i wanted to get serious and I found myself a teacher that I really like. I get lessons twice a month so I have alot of time between lessons to practice what i please now but I feel overwhelmed with my options so Im hoping all the helpful people here can help give me some direction.
I have been practicing an hour and half a day so far. Ear Training with intervals, very slow practice of my scales and arpeggios which takes up most of my time. I also do a little bit of transcribing but honestly i mostly get frustrated with it. I know I am improving but I just feel like there's more that I should do. I don't feel like im becoming a musician.
