I've been focusing on barre session in L&MG, doing my practice from the workbooks. Since I think I finally got it, I looked around Gibson's Skill House:

 

http://www2.gibson.c...ills-house.aspx

 

My question is how do I incorporate the lessons with the course? For example, the Barre Power Workout is basically the Bonus exercises for S07+S08. That's cool, since I can focus on repeated practice as I already know the progressions there.

 

Does anybody have some kind of a breakdown of which lesson goes with which session?

I don't think I can say which session goes with which skills house lesson but when I was going through the jazz session, I would look for any jazz videos under "Style" and "Power Workouts" like Jazz arpeggios and Jazz Basics. 

 

Perhaps as you go through the sessions in the course, take a look under the three different categories and see which videos are closest to what you are working on. 

 

I know this might not be much help but it's what I sometimes do.

Add any song that you can handle and want to play. You have to learn an a new chord to play this song? Good, now you have a reason for that chord you didn't know you needed. Playing songs will make a big difference in your advancement. We are all here to play music so we should all be playing songs as soon as possible. Did I mention it is fun? Yeah it is.

Agree, Randy120. Learning Misty is really stretching me. I know very few of the chords in the piece (in the key of the version I'm learning) so that is good. I've also recently picked up some solo-playing versions of a number of songs I happen to like. While the chords aren't a big deal, what I like in the soloing is they are all fingerstyle and this is allowing me to directly apply what I already knew from some classical guitar lessons and the exercises in Session 10. I've gone through a number of Skills House songs, but many are not from the era/types of music that interest me. (I'm just not into much past the early 70s, either in pop, C&W, "Christian", or rock.)

I finally started playing more songs instead of "practicing" so much.  It is making a great difference.  I am finding the stum patterns pretty easily on most of what I attempt to play.  It is great fun!

Playing songs is very important to the learning process. It pushes you and rewards you at the same time. I have tried to play songs that were beyond my skill level from early in the course. I failed at times, but I never let it slow me down. A few months later the song may come with your new skills. I try to play the melody, rhythm, and fingerstyle for each song. You just never know what you might find.
