I've been playing on and off for about 10 years, taking long breaks for kids etc, I've had lessons which I think were great, but just really want to make progress.
My goal is to be able to hold my own at a jam session (I would be coming to the Southern one in April if it was one weekend either side of that date !! ).
I've studied a few rockschool pieces with a teacher and learnt to play them, and now i just use the books to get tab for tracks I want to learn.
Has anyone here gone through the whole grading system with Rockschool / RGT ? Would you say it is worth it, or is it a narrow way of looking at learning - should I just be playing / noodling as much as I can fitting in a few lessons when I have time ?
Thought / opinions appreciated ? I love music, always have, and I've been told i have a good ear (whatever that means).. I just want to get better !
