Does it seem like your progress in learning to play the guitar is very slow, even though you are taking lessons and practicing every day?
Are you beginning to lose motivation because it is so hard? Did you know that everyone faces the same challenge? When we are learning something new it takes time, it’s often frustrating. When we get frustrated it often takes longer to become the guitar player that you’ve been dreaming about.
Why?? You might ask. There are several reasons why this happens. As you learn more about the reasons, you will also learn how to overcome the obstacles and practicing will become easier. You will also get better faster.
One of the most common reasons you struggle with practicing is because you aren’t sure what to practice or how long to practice each lesson, or what things to practice to be the best guitarist you can be.
Not knowing what to practice or how much to practice makes it very difficult to stay motivated. Some people get information from a variety of sources, which may introduce different strategies or methods of practice. They often introduce different lessons and riffs making your practice confusing. You then end up with too much “stuff” to practice, creating even more problems.
I have learned from personal experience that too much “stuff” can actually keep you from reaching your goals. You need to limit your scope to practice material that will be the most valuable and build your skill the fastest. Remember, every teacher, every musician has differences in the way they teach or approach different ways of playing. Don’t jump around.
