It’s no surprise that if you want to get better on the guitar you need to practice.

But how much time should you be practicing? And can you practice too much?

In the past I practiced for 2-3 hours PER DAY to get better.

Why? 

It’s what all my idols did so I thought... “Why shouldn’t it work for me?”

But the reality is that more time spent practicing the guitar does NOT equal more results.

You’re free to believe this, or to reject it and click off this article now. I’m only talking from my experience.

I’ve found that there’s only one thing that really matters…

And that’s the QUALITY of time you put into practicing.

How I improved without practicing

The more I learned about how to practice rather than focusing on the “what” to practice

The more progress I made by practicing LESS. (And I help all my paying students to do the same thing.)

When you understand how to practice well… you don’t need to practice for three hours. Or even one hour…

You can practice for as little as 10 to 15 minutes a day. (And if you do this right, you’ll get more done than what other people do in an hour.)

Exactly how you do that goes beyond what I can talk about in these articles…

But if you’d like, you can start thinking about how to improve your practice so you can spend more time doing the things you love.

If you have anything you do that helps you to practice better, I’d love to hear about it.

Comment below and let me know.

P.S. Speaking of someone who's improved the quality of their practice...

I'd like you to meet Chardelle.

She's a singer/songwriter learning at our guitar school, who's gone from strumming basic open chords...

To fluently playing barre chords and improving her theory to write better songs.
