If you are committed to learning your guitar, I would like to share with you a few simple tips on how to practice guitar.

The number on thing you want to do when practicing your guitar is to set time aside during your day to have a concentrated time of practice.  I recommend that you set aside a minimum of 2 times per week for an hour.  Now this is a bare minimum if you are taking guitar instruction, and are learning just for fun.  If you’re more serious about  learning how to play guitar, then you will need to set aside an hour a day 3 to 5 times a week with a minimum of two days that you are not playing.  The reason why you don’t want to play all the time is that your body and mind need to rest and recover in order to be ready to take in more information and apply what you are learning on the guitar.

There are 3 simple steps to remember and apply when practicing guitar.

1. Stay Focused

2. Practice in module units

3. Be Patient

Let’s take a closer look at these three points more closely.

1. Stay focused:  When practicing your acoustic or electric guitar it can be very easy to loose your track of focus.  One way to stay focused is to is to make sure that you are practicing in a quiet secluded area without distractions.

2.  Practice in module units:  When you practice your guitar, practice in 10 minute modules.  This will help you from being distracted, and you will be forced to pay attention to what you are practicing.  When you are done 10 ……when the ten minutes are up witch to the next area of practice and give another concentrated 10 minute practice session.  In time you will notice huge leaps and bounds in your playing.

3. Be Patient:  Practicing your beloved six string can be a love/hate relationship.  Some days your learning sessions will be super smooth and you will learn new things on the guitar super fast.  Other days you will want to toss your instrument out the window and wonder why you gave up playing time on guitar hero. The point I’m trying to make is that you must be patient with the learning process of learning when things get tough…in other words…BE PATIENT. 

In about three months time if you are determined to continually practice your electric or acoustic guitar, you will be able to look back and recognize how you’ve learned to play guitar in a snap.
