Are you seriously interested in learning how to play guitar? Many guitarists that played for a while have yet to actually get a grip on their playing ability. They seem to get distracted by a rut, which can seem almost not possible to climb out of. A lot of us simply do not have the time to invest or are hesitant to get the proper guitar training. By human nature, many players tend to take the simple way out by playing what they know already throughout their practice sessions.
Although I’m not recommending that playing what you know already is a very bad thing; we all do need to polish what we know from time to time. Aside from, the entire purpose of playing guitar is to have fun, and just what fun could it be to study theory and also practice some scales that don’t even sound musical. What I am saying is that we as guitarists have to strike a balance, and make the most of our practice time if we ever expect to get much better at our craft. Moving beyond our comfort zone and learning something new could be exciting and advantageous.
If you’re seriously interested in expanding your playing ability, then you’ll have to take control of your guitar training. Make an honest effort to learn something totally new each and every practice session. Learning how to play tunes of other guitar player, although is excellent at getting the technique down, won’t help you to truly master your guitar. You will have to do some serious guitar training, exercises and also study of theory.
Keep in mind that going that extra mile with guitar training outside your comfort zone will significantly enhance your playing. Have fun because, “all work and no play makes Amy a dull guy”, but always add in your homework tasks into your practice routine if you’re seriously interested in taking it one stage further.
