About five years into playing guitar, I fell into an addiction.
One of my favourite things to do was to learn snippets of songs…
And to be honest, I got pretty damn good at it.
But I felt like a guitar playing fraud.
That’s because I always looked up to people who could play full songs. Who could play music with other people. Who were able to play in bands.
I thought it was so cool, but I only knew bits of songs.
And when people asked me to play guitar for them, I never felt like I could really “play.”
If you’re reading this, maybe you can relate?
Maybe you’ve fallen victim to learning parts of songs… never completing anything.
I know it’s not just me. I’ve talked to hundreds of students when they first walk into my school, and many say the same thing.
They want to feel confident enough with their own playing that they can play through a full song.
That’s why if you’re reading this… and you only learn parts of songs…
I’m throwing down a challenge.
Choose ONE song, and see it through until the end.
And if it gets tricky, stick with it.
What you’ll find is that you feel a massive sense of achievement. (If you’ve never learnt a full song before, it’s hard to explain.)
If you want to share what song you’re going to do, I’d love to hear about it.
