ive been playing for a few short years now, maybe 4 , 5 who knows... i never kept count.
i had a few teachers, and ive read a few books (with planetalk upfront, that book gave me a kind of independence i never expected)
thing is, most teachers teach you to go up and down scales, or do some other technique excercises (which i can figure out on my own)
or maybe they fill you up with music theory (which may be useful to some, but to me it just kills my inspiration... music, chords, notes just "feel right")
so i stopped taking lessons a few months ago.
i know i have a lot to learn, but i really cant think of anything else than spending time with my instrument, playing, listening to music... maybe try and play the ocassional new song/solo/riff, and i guess eventually i will get better and better (i dont picture any of my fav guitarists doing anything else than that)
and anyway.. i feel like theres something missing, like i could evolve a little more, but im not sure how
have you ever felt like this? do you have any advice?
i really want to evolve but im not certain what should i do next
EDIT: i have one clear thing in mind that i want, and thats being able to play whatever i have in my mind (for example whatever i can hum with my voice, be able to play it, be it a new creation or something i might have heard somewhere)
being able to play a song with just hearing it a few times...
im not into shredding, complicated jazz harmony, or anything that requires an insane amount of skills.
think the lines of pink floyd, zeppelin, coldplay, radiohead
