It’s 2011, and it might be time to take your guitar playing to an entirely new low. So read on.
1. Practice Guitar More
Just practice a lot. Hours are what matters anyway, right?
2. Don’t Keep a Practice Log
Practice logs are lame anyway. If you’re going to practice a lot, it’s going to be way too much work to record all that nonsense anyway.
Never mind that when you’re practicing, you think of things that never would have occurred to you before. And forget that a practice log allows you to constantly have daily goals or, if you’re into lists, tasks to complete.
3. Spend All Your Practice Time on Technique
Or at least 50% of it. Forget that we play guitar to play music. Scales, arpeggios, and slurs are all more important.
And don’t forget that you should always try to have perfect technique from the start. Don’t do anything until your sure it’s correct–and be sure to ask about it on at least 5 guitar websites and forums.
