The most important thing
As you progress through your guitar journey, your ability to play rhythmically is going to be the most important element of your playing. In fact, simply realising that rhythm is the #1 most important aspect of your playing, is going to be a huge step on your journey. It is very common to consider chords, scales or even the physicality of playing more important. It isn't. Rhythm is the boss, and needs as much, if not more attention than anything else.
