I have been messing with the guitar for about a year. I have no fixed schedule to play, do it when I can. I'm an older guy with a full time night job working 12 hour shifts.

I have learned allot of stuff, most open chords, some scales and easy tunes ect.

I need a plan to tie it all together, suggestions?

Start with learning songs from bands that you like, that's a good way to musically tie all of those together.

just starting out can be kinda mundane untill you learn to play some things. make learning (or at least playing along to)your favorite songs part of your practice schedule.
