    I also think learning songs by your favorite artists is a really good way to learn and then there is also so many chord, tab and lyric sites on the net, and if you have musician friends they can show and advise you with ways to improve.

    I'd have to agree here - I even subscribed!
    One of the best and covers all kinds of things.

    Another one I wish I had had when I was a kid is Crammit - a reworking of the folded Jammit app - just search on facebook. Originally only available for ipod/ipad but now has osx and windows versions thanks to the new developer - truly amazing and I think he sells it for $20 or something with the whole back catalogue of songs free to download after.

    Besides the Paul Gilbert one, wich is more focussed on Rock guitar.
    The two best ones in my humble opinion are :
    https://signalsmusicstudio.com/
    If you want more then just guitar tuition, he's one of the better youtube teachers in my opinion.
    And as mentionned before Paul Davids
    https://pauldavidsguitar.com/guitarcourses/
    The best youtube guitar teacher in my opinion, various styles and great way of explaining.
    I play guitar for 35 years, and i still learn from both mentionned above.
    Those are not available on the sister site tho (wish they would)
    Enjoy learning, one hell of an instrument, take your time and play by ear, is the most important thing to learn.
    Just play with songs you like to listen to on the tube, be aware that 'playlists" are slowed down or sped up to not get copyrighted,
    so it might not sound in tune for all the playlists out there.

    Whatever technique and theory lessons you find are appropriate for you, that's great, - i.e., very personal choices.
    But I have to support these comments even more....
    (So, just adding/copying my comments from another similar thread)...

    In addition to all the good advice above about learning and practicing your favourite songs.
    One of the best things you can do is to move beyond practicing and start performing.
    If you can actually be gigging then that's the best, but if that's not available then just pretend you're gigging.
    So, take your 10 favourite songs, and play them back to back no stopping. (take the no stopping seriously)
    In a gig you won't have any second chances, you just keep going no matter how many bum notes you played.
    So simulate that exact experience. Perform the whole set non stop. (no excuses - just keep going!)
    After few weeks of doing that, your mind set will have changed forever.
    Then just keep on adding new favourite songs to your list.

    i started learning guitar ,basically playing by myself trying to play other people's tracks since 8y old with my parents classical spanish guitar , went for half a year when i was 12 to guitar lessons but nothing special

    i recommend to all my friends that want to learn guitar,improve muscle memory and have fun while doing so to grab ubisoft Rocksmith including the usb cable (works good to record your guitar realtime also into your DAW and vst amps too - have to use realtek drivers though never was able to use it with rme audio drivers) , grab a couple of your favorite style artist music tracks available and just have fun

    Which Guitar tutorials aren't worth getting? Time is precious . . . so many options. Which to get? Which not to get?

    For a practice routine targeting pure mechanical skills and basic musical knowledge needed for various shred/metal/whatever else more "technical" playing, it's hard to beat Petrucci's Rock Discipline (and the accompanying exercise book) even after all these years. Definitely aimed at people with both dedication and time, but I am sure that anyone who invests both can at least reach the level of the average youtube shredder :)

    Otherwise, just ask every single musician you meet who's better or at least around your level to jam. Just gotta go out and do it and not wait for "I will start asking people to jam when I learn X scale" or "I will start asking people to jam when I reach X level" cause that's never gonna happen

    Best guitar course?
    Form a band, make some songs, go on the road.
    Guaranteed you know what to do with the guitar afterwards.
    Might not be the Stave Vai, but you will know how to play some things you want to play.
