    Download IGT Android App Hello everyone. Thank you for taking the time to help me out.

    I am an intermediate level Guitar player with basic knowledge of open and barre chords. I have the ability to play any melody that I hear. I have been practicing the instrument for more than 4 years now but without much growth.

    I want to take my skills to the next level. I don't know what to practice. I have been doing scales drills but they don't seem to help much. I want to be able to find chords, make music or just transcribe songs with melody, bass and chords separately.

    Any advice would be great. Thank you in advance.

    Download IGT Android App I think you should prepare for Trinity college Rock and Pop exam Grade 1.

    I have just started preparing for the same as I have a background similar to yours.

    You can have a look at the syllabus online. More than anything else this will keep you focused.

    Download IGT Android App Going for the Trinity course is absolutely useless unless you really want to waste your time doing that. There is absolutely no gain from that course if you end up quitting that in the middle.
    Rather get your scales right first and start jamming on the backing tracks or backing chords and learn to move around freely on the neck and create melodies on the fly. If you ain't able to do that please don't call yourself an intermediate player. There is a long way to go and there is more than just learning songs played and created by others.
