Hi Everyone, new here -
Question about music school curriculum VS online learning such as Guitar Super System.
I thrive off of structure and one of the challenges I find even with someone like Tomo or Music is Win content is there is a ton of content, but I feel like I lack structure or guidance.
Is there an "approach lesson" that I might be missing?

Is there something this that exist for guitar super system?
Daughter's going to Berklee in the fall and I'm just curious as a Dad who likes to noodle, but can't pursue music full time, just as a side hobby.
Struggle with volumes of content and not a structured curriculum which is what i think most online content is -
Thoughts and experiences, suggestions?
I purchased Guitar Super System 1 and 2 way back when Tyler was first starting out. His approach and methodology just clicked with me.
There was a lesson on triads that really knocked me out. I'm just starting this subscription but I'm sure there's a "path" here. Everyone has a "method to their madness" - you need to look for what you want that meets your current level of playing and go from there.
Get out a sheet of paper and map out your "method". What do you need to learn? Do you know where ALL the notes are on the fretboard??? I mean set a metronome for like 60bpm and play every C in time - then go to B, etc. First thing is KNOWING your fretboard!!!!
Then start with the Major Scale because THAT is the roadmap everything comes from. Once you know the Major Scale and can play it in all keys starting from anywhere within the scale without losing your way - go from there my friend.
Learn songs! It is all about making music - letting what's in you flow out through your instrument. Sorry - there's no "short cut", no "cheat codes" - but learning songs, knowing your notes, scales - that taboo thing called "theory" will pay off by the 16th note triplets!!!
That's my two cents anyways..........
Brett, this is a helpful answer.
"You need to look for what you want that meets your current level of playing and go from there." Looking over the forums as I have just joined, it reads is if most asking questions don't know what they need to know because they need more guidance.
