Thanks so much for sharing here on the forum!
You mentioned that you're getting mixed up where to jump in when you're playing with other guitar players. The good thing is that you're listening, and that is step one. Always listen carefully to what the other player is doing. To have a bit of trouble playing with others when you haven't played a lot in those situations before is super common, and it's just something that most people go through at first. I would recommend you to play together with recordings, and try some of your songs with a metronome and stick to it for a few weeks and you'll notice a difference. Try to play the melody only with a backing track or a metronome, and be as expressive as you can. You'll think its a bit tricky in the beginning but that's only natural and we need to keep trying. Record yourself playing with the metronome and you'll notice even more what you need to work on. You need the listeners perspective, because sometimes it's difficult to really hear how you sound when you're in the middle of playing a song. Therefore, recording yourself is essential to get better. The more yo play with other people the faster you'll learn how to do that. And for solo guitar, it's great to record and listen back a lot too!

Yes - it was me who replied! :)
Thanks so much Olá for sharing! It's great to learn the foundation first and then move on to the next thing, so that you don't learn some patterns the "wrong" way, and then automatically practices in that way for too long.
Let me know if I can ever help you with anything else!
All the best,
Really happy you're here at our forum! We're all here to learn! Let me know if you ever have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them right here on the forum. Kind regards/Emil Ernebro
Most people know him from the films, but he is one of the greatest songwriters for the guitar in history! Incredibly talented, funny and musical. He saw himself more as a "guitar writer" than "guitar player".. he said.. "I wrote it, now YOU play it!" :) But man,.. could he play... amazing!
Wonderful to see! Great job!! I know how much work it takes to work out those parts!
I'm glad you're part of our community @Vinay ! Thanks for sharing, and keep pickin'!
I currently don't have a big lesson on this topic but I'm glad you asked about it.
The "Inversions"-lesson that you already watched covers similar things but I'll think about making a lesson focused on only triads as well.
So glad you're learning from our lessons Steve!
Have a great day!
