I've been playing the guitar for almost 8 years. I haven't learned any scales and I've never taken an actual guitar lesson. I have always just played the blues and i've been lucky enough to jam and learn from some great blues musicians. I really feel like I need to start studying some other styles of music though and I recently found this site. It seems like most of the people here listen to people like Vai and satriani. I had never really listened to them, but since finding this site i've started listening to it a lot and realized that I can't play this style of music at all. What's a good way to get started with this type of music? Also, what are some good songs to listen to/start with?
