I should mention that personally I like having the ability to write in many different genres. Other songwriters may prefer to focus on just one. I would suggest following your musical interests and try to become the best guitarist you can by working on those things that you are drawn to as a musician. By doing that you'll be assured of maintaining your interest, and putting in the time and effort to improve will come most easily.
Thank you for your thoughts. Have you had guitar teachers or have you learned online?
