Hey guys! I've been playing guitar for a few years, and for some years I attended a private music school. I went through a rock course, and then 2 or 3 years of jazz+theory courses. The best times to me were learning how all seems to be linked theoretically, and then applying that during improvisation and all that.
However, I recently had to move to another country. A few months back, I went to another music school in here, but they only had private classes. No school that I can find in this small town has group practice that I can attend - they are either too expensive, or only a select number of people can be on the "shool's band". Having said this, I am struggling to try and stay motivated to keep practicing, but the joy of discovering something new and applying it on the guitar is something that I want to keep getting.
Having said this, I'd like to ask you the following questions:
- Do you recommend any self-learning guitar and music theory books?
- What do you do to stay motivated when you have to practice and improvise only using backing tracks? (and what resources do you use?)
- Do you recommend any online resources where I can learn and practice new things?
Thanks for all the help!
