well usually i don't have too much of a problem finding the right scales, and i know all my scales, but for some reason single note progressions give me more difficulty in picking the right one.

Have a look in Amazon, they have a huge range of books on guitar playing. I'm always getting them.  :D  :D

yeah i might consider buying some books... but i've been taking lessons for about 4 years from 3 different teachers... so maybe if i don't know it by now i'm not going to.

anyway, maybe you guys could let me know what you think of my recordings. the first one sounds ok to my ears, but maybe a little off. i can't tell if its the timing or the scale. the second one i think is the right scales.

Are you getting stuck on improvising and phrasing?

no, not really. once i can figure out what scales i'm using i'm fine. still a little trouble with timing, but its gotten a lot better.

I find just jamming along to cds can help with that

yeah i've been doing that a lot lately. not only is it much more fun than playing by myself, but that's how i've been improving my timing. i probably should start using a metronome though.
