hey guys, i've been playing my acoustic for two years and an electric for a year...i can play stuff like bon jovi and some nice chord-oriented music like green day or bryan adams...wat i find is i'm absolutely stunned and have this big question mark on my forehead when it comes to classic stuff like Petrucci or Vai or Satriani. I mean, i know getting their kind of music and being able to play that way requires a lot of dedication, practice and stuff, but how to I get myself some sense of direction?? Ppl tell me do scales, arpeggios, tapping, hammer-ons and stuff...i get lost when i see all those phyrgian/ionian/dorian/what-notian scales and all that 'schnozz.' I can't get myself to apply that knowledge either.... Any idea how i can get past this guitarist's block i'm facing right now??
