    What are you asking here AR?

    Meanwhile.... those guitar sounds are pleasing, sure enough.

    I listened closely.

    Sounded good man. I loved channel 1 of my mark V, best thing about that amp. If you like that sound a lot, don't forget you can use channel 2 as your clean Channel.

    don't be afraid to buy used. I do from amazon all the time. I have a huge library of
    books and DVD's. if its no a subject or a different way of looking at things I buy it.
    its an addiction if anything else lol. knowledge is power bro.
    take your time and go through these carefully. if you go through these 3, this time next yr
    you will have a damn nice grip on your playing and actually KNOW what your doing.

    the dvd might be a bit advanced for you at the moment, but when you finish the Logic book
    you will know whats going on as soon as you drop the DVD in. its all very basic stuff that
    any beginner to first yr student should know. your playing will reflect what you have learned
    weekly I promise you. record yourself every Monday (as example) and practice your lessons
    that week. the following Monday review your earlier recording and then play it on guitar again and
    listen to how much you've improved. it will blow you away if you have actually done your homework.

    I also want to suggest one of these. I have this one in brown. I like the electric ones because they are louder
    and that will come in handy when you start jamming what you've practiced and want to groove with what
    you have learned loud with that beast of an amp you just bought. no guitar player should be w/o one and
    use it as much as you can.

    I just wanted to chime in to tell you that you are on the right track and to keep at it. It takes time for sure, to get over that hump. Or another way I have always looked at it is, to open that door and go through it.

    Sounds like you got some good advice from the guys with the books. I can not give any advice on books/DVD's and such as I am self taught by ear. I learned by listening and playing along wih my records when I was around 15 years young. But I will say that training your ear by playing along with some of your favorite bands is a good way to get your rhythm playing and timing on its way. Make sure to not overlook the importance of strong rhythm guitar playing as well as playing lead guitar.
