Re: want to get into theory and actually composing
I'd recommend finding a really good guitar teacher. I've been playing off/on for about 16 years or so. I was never really into learning theory. I learned the basics but wanted to learn, and understand more. I got hooked up with a GIT grad. I've been seeing him for about 4 months now and have learned alot in that time. He is teaching me things that i'd never get into learning myself. I find it hard to work on things on my own. With a teacher, i have a lesson to learn between each time i have to see him. If i don't take time to learn each lesson, i am just wasting my money, my time, and his time. So, i learn the lessons. Just my 2 cents.
