I’ve gone this route too. It made me a better player but it was difficult for me to commit based on my work schedule. I just left a group I joined about a month ago. It just didn’t feel like a great fit and I wasn’t into the music much. I just really liked the other guitar player. Super nice guy and an excellent player. Maybe I’ll ask him if he’ll do lessons with me at a discount lol.Formed a band. Playing with others, especially a kick-ass drummer, is what made me a better player, by far. TBH, I don't really enjoy playing the electric guitar on its own and doubt I'd continue were it not for my band as well as the work I do with my students.
In the end, I determined the amount of time spent on playing songs I didn’t really like wasn’t worth me continuing. I joined 2 bands to become a better player. It was helpful, but not helpful enough IMHO.
