I'd also highly recommend "Fretboard Logic" by Bill Edwards.

Hey Man I made a few vids a few years back that may be of help.
These are intended to help get Jerry-head advanced-beginners, to make the leap to Jerry-head advanced-intermediates.
We just got a Skype ready TV over the holidays.
I need to buy the camera, and sign on to Skype, then maybe I can give someone a Skype lesson.
...It all rolls into one...
Pete B. wrote:One thing you could do to create an official practice routine is, First off decide what song you want to learn (more like "study"), then divide the Jerry stuff into two catagories.
1. Stuff he plays pretty much exactly the same every time.
2. Improvisal stuff.
Pull it up on YouTube or Archive and play along with it a few times (vids are nice for lick/chord/fret-position queues).
Just taking one song, Estimated Prophet for example...

Transfer of knowledge to new situations is the key for deeper learning and understanding. This is especially true with improvisation.
Also, I would begin each practice session with a review of the last thing you practiced.
