There’s one thing that anyone can do to improve faster without practicing more. (Even if you think you’ve tried everything already.)

It’s not a new way of holding your guitar. It’s not even about understanding how to practice smarter. (Although this does help A LOT.)

What you’re about to read is the one thing I do before I practice anything. It helps “prime” my brain (and my fingers) to help me improve faster.

3 mistakes beginner guitarists make and how to avoid them

Before I reveal the answer… let me explain the “wrong” approach.

When my students bring challenges to me... 99% of them try to solve their challenges in the wrong way.

They dive in head first with a song or exercise they’re practicing. They tackle their problems like a bull in a china shop.

This is where they go wrong.


They're not asking themselves this one question first…

“What am I trying to work on right now?”

This question has such a profound impact on your practice. When you think about what needs "fixing"… you begin to find challenges and solutions.

If it’s a song you’re working on… what’s holding you back from being able to play the song more confidently?

What specific thing is making it harder to play?

Should You Be Setting Goals For Guitar?

Even if you don’t know the right answer… asking yourself this question gets you on the right path.

It gets your brain searching for problems and trying to think about solutions. This is the question I ask myself before I practice anything. If you don’t ask yourself this question…

You can spend 5… 10… 30… 60 minutes of practice and get almost nothing out of it.

That’s because you’re not focused on what you’re trying to get better at. You’re just playing and letting your hands go on autopilot.

Then you wonder why all the “practice” you’ve been doing over the last few months isn’t paying off.

It’s because you’re probably not in the habit of trying to search for those challenges that are holding you back.

Of course you’re not going to have all the solutions.

And you’re going to have blind spots. Challenges that exist that you’re not even aware of yet.

To help you find the right solutions for your challenges. To help uncover the blindspots that are holding you back.

If you’d like to find out more about taking lessons with me and my teachers… know that we’re not cheap as a school.

They may not be a right fit for you. You won’t end up paying £1000’s. But it won’t be anything less than £200 a month.


Even if you don't want to take lessons with me... I hope this was useful for you.
