This. I spent 3 to 4 years doing the self taught thing with YouTube, Tabs, Apps, Books etc, and although I picked up a lot (there really is some great stuff out there) my learning lacked discipline and more often than not I'd gravitate towards easy to play cool sounding licks / solos instead of pinning down the fundamentals.

For the last few months I've been having lessons with my daughter's guitar teacher and since taking that step, the learning has structure and my playing and understanding of music has come on leaps and bounds. Seriously, having one-to-one tuition is the best thing I've ever done...just wish I'd done it sooner.
