Many people who learn guitar get caught in the “cycle of frustration.”

Here’s what this cycle looks like:

You should only need to get good at guitar ONCE
  1. You start to get excited to learn (Whether that’s moving to the next level, or getting started as a beginner.)
  2. As you make a few improvements the excitement continues to grow.
  3. Then life starts getting in the way. You have to start working more hours. You have more family events on. Or anything else…
  4. Guitar slips to the side and starts gathering dust. Or maybe it even becomes a piece of art on the wall.
  5. Some time later you realise you haven’t done anything for a while and you’re back to square one.
  6. You begin the cycle again… only this time a little less optimistic. Everything you learned before is gone. You’ve got to relearn everything.

Maybe you know someone like this? Or maybe you are this person?

Wherever you are on your journey learning guitar...

You should only ever need to get good at guitar ONCE.

It’s no fun when you have to start from scratch over and over again. That’s because each time you’re reminded of every failure you experienced

Maybe it was the failure to overcome a particular challenge. Or maybe you even promised to yourself that this time would be the time you get good. 

It can be easy to wonder - “Will this time be any different?”

And before you know it you’re doubting your ability to learn the guitar. (We all know where this leads.)

Music can be extremely rewarding to have in your life. But the journey to learning the guitar doesn’t have to feel like you’re running a race.

You should only need to get good at guitar ONCE

You don’t have to get caught up in the cycle of frustration.

And the way to stop yourself from falling into this deadly trap is by making a decision...

To make guitar a part of your life, no matter how small that might be. 

I’m not saying you have to dedicate your life to it. But even doing something little as often as you can makes a BIG difference.

Life will always try and get in the way. Unexpected events will always be… well unexpected. You have to take control in these moments of chaos and decide to keep moving forward.

It’s not easy… but it’s worth it.

Don’t get caught up in the cycle.
