088 - 7 Things To Do Every Time You Practice Guitar

In this week's episode, I am going through 7 essential things you should do every time you practice guitar.


7 Things To Do Every Time You Practice the Guitar

  1. Tune-up
  2. Warm Up
  3. Develop your skills
    • Picking, Chords, Arpeggios, Scales, Rhythm, Notes & Aural
  4. Use a metronome
  5. Have just the right challenge
    • When choosing something to play, it is important to choose something that will stretch you but not break you. Too easy and you won't improve, but too hard and you will become demotivated. This is why following a structured method as we have at Beginner Guitar Academy is so important!
  6. Wipe down your strings
    • This will extend the life of your strings and keep your fretboard clean from dirt and grime buildup.
  7. Record your practice session
    • Using a notebook to record your practice sessions is a great way to track your progress over time, which can easily be missed from day to day.

    • Start by recording the following:

      Date and time

      What was practiced

      How it went (good or bad)

      Any thoughts or insights

      Anything else of interest
