Fellow GWJers, I am a complete newbie who really wants to learn to play an electric guitar. I received one for a birthday gift and have bought a few books, spent some time practicing from them. But it's difficult to progress without some directed learning. And the books I have are mostly reference books, even if they try to be a "soup to nuts" type of resource. Unfortunately I have no time or free funds to take actual lessons, which is obviously the best way. So I was wondering if there are online lessons or site or some kind of "thing" where I could find lessons to watch and play along with to learn. Preferably that progress from no experience to advanced.
I realize there are many sites out there that advertise just this, I've looked. But knowing what's good and what's bad, what would work and what wouldn't is impossible to a newbie like myself. So I'm hoping someone with experience could direct me to something useful.
My weapon of choice is an Epiphone Les Paul Special II:
