Thanks for your help everyone :-)
What a warm welcome to the forum. I'll write about myself on the 'welcome' page, but long story short, I'd love to become a music/guitar teacher myself. I've been playing for 6 years, I'm 26 and have always thought about it, but have really started to seriously look at my playing and knowledge in the last 6 months.  If I can get there by 30 I'll be a happy man!

Given that I want to be a teacher, I think I need to take a methodical approach - stick to a few things at a time; master them and move on, becoming back to them for a refresher when I can.

Up until recently I've always been a 'feel' player - my techniques have been okay but not where I'd like them to be, and since starting my practice schedules and working hard, I've seen good results so far.

I am a teacher of literature and language, and have learnt so much about how to present and sequentially structure courses from this site. If you want to learn to teach, the Beginner's Course on this site is a masterclass in presenting information in a way that really helps, supports, encourages and teaches students. It rewards study.

I'm not sure if I'll get a reply but I couldn't find anywhere else to write this since it's regarding this lesson.

I recently watched Justin's effective practice lessons after finishing the intermediate foundation level.
My current goal is to create covers of video game / anime music on Youtube, similarly to Youtubers such as FamilyJules. Howver, I'm not sure what I need to improve to get to that point, I've created a rough practice schedule based off of Justin's intermediate practice routine but I wondered if I could get any advice on how to make steps towards my goal.

Unfortunately there's generally no magic ingredient that can make you get better faster other than practice. Of course, there's ineffective ways to practice and effective ways to practice.

However, one of the other really effective things you can do is transcribing. You may well need to do this anyway as most of the songs you're looking to cover probably won't have decent tab for them anywhere. This will develop your ear and your knowledge of the fret board and fingering as it requires you to work out where on the fret board to play particular parts of the song, as well as fingering to use.

Cheers,
