well, i disagree that learning modes will do more harm than good. he's gonna learn them eventually. i don't really think the order in which he learns things matters. it's all gonna end up mixing with all his other knowledge in the end anyway.

Now that I've kinda nailed down what I need to practice, you guys have any good ideas on when to practice and how to motivate myself to practice? I was thinking of doing a practice journal, where I log what I practice each day and what I'm working on, so I can look back and find out what I've accomplished and where I've improved. I don't know, any thoughts?

I keep a log of my practice sessions. I use the montly log form that you can get here - I downloaded the PDF file and then just print them off as I need them. There's also a weekly sheet with more room for free form entry. The site is that of Kevin Dowling who wrote a good book on practicing called The Secrets of Successful Practising for Guitarists.
