Welcome @djjemela ! You will find a lot of people here with the same background and goals - and age (I retired 2006).
The videos done by the Scaler folk are excellent. But because of the vast array of music that Scaler can spawn, they are tend (IMHO) to be more “information” based than “music method” based - they provide the information, and you provide and develop the (or should I say, your) method. To some extent taking to much from ‘how to’ / method instruction tends to make you a product of the method, rather than developing something that you create. My take is that it doesn’t matter if it’s crap - it’s my crap.
There is a learning curve to all this DAW stuff, but if you are familiar with Microsoft Excel there is an analogy. I’ve been using Excel (and before it Visicalc) but I think I use about 5 -10% of its capabilities - because that small subset is all I need to do what I want to do. And so it is with DAWs, so the goal is to find the bits you need to use to get the results you are seeking.
At first, I was very focussed on end results, but I’ve more taken up the philosophy of @Bernd , who no doubt you will “meet” on this board; and paraphrasing and slightly modifying, and that is it is as much the musical journey of discovery as it is the final result that brings the satisfaction from getting into all this.
BTW, I feebly plonk the guitar and it’s interesting how many world class guitarists have noted that they took a lot of input and learned essential skills rom the drummers they worked with. Music (in the western non classical idiom) is about rhythm that conveys context and drives a piece along, so you are well placed to carry that forward into moving into another medium.
You will find everyone here helpful, so post away. It would be worth posting a reply to this to say what your gear is (PC or Mac / midi controller etc) and what DAW you are using. That way any response will be much more pertinent to your environment.
Happy discovery !
