I know exactly what ur going thru. Cuz I'm a learning guitarist myself. I've been playing for just a couple of years, and lots of times, I felt helpless for the lack of decent resources.
My pc at the time was way out of date (66Mhz...), so I can't tell u much about instructional cd-roms. But I used (and still using) quite a few books with audio cds.
For Rock&Metal soloing, I got 'Rock Lead Performance' by MI, and 'Shred Guitar' by Paul Hanson for Warner Bros. Both come with a cd, and they have many great sounding licks. Of course, I'm still working on most of em...
For Rhythm, I have 'Rhythm Guitar' by MI. It's very well organized step by step, and it's great for learning strumming, chords, and chord progressions.
And for Blues, I use 'Mastering Blues Guitar' by National Guitar Workshop, and '1001 Funk & Blues Guitar Licks' by Mel Bay, which has great short licks that can also be used in Rock or Metal.
I think that's more than enuf for anybody who's starting out. I was tempted to buy some other stuff, but what's the point if I haven't mastered the ones I already have.
Anyways, I wish u good luck.
