Beginner (Sort Of)
Pick a record that may be just a little bit above your level and figure it out, note for note. *Try to transcribe all of the guitar yourself, and definately know all the chord changes. *Don't peek at any tab unless you absolutely have to. *Also, playing against the record will help you stay on tempo.
You can practice chops, speed, etc. all you want, but I have found that in order to be a better guitar player and musician, you should probably try figuring out different songs, styles, players, and the like. *By doing this, you learn a lot more at once than you would by just running a major scale really fast.
