One of the most important things for your journey of learning to be a great guitar player is to develop or discover a 10 step practice routine for beginner guitar players.
Look For The Answer
You won’t need to look for the answer of how to do this because it will be presented to you here in this post. It will show exactly what you need to practice, in what order & for how long.
But you must apply yourself. You must apply yourself on a daily basis in order for a practice routine to be beneficial to your learning. So make sure you have a good place to practice, you devote some quality undisturbed time and get to work on developing your practice routine and putting it into action to become a better guitar player.
A system like this will keep you focused, developing the proper skills & moving you forward toward your goal of becoming a great guitar player. But first, you must have a goal. You have that right?
Make sure to have a goal.
If not I would take some time to figure this out. You can do this by grabbing my free training guide Setting S.M.A.R.T Goals to get you in the right mindset. Ask yourself some questions. Like:
Why am I learning guitar? What do I want to accomplish with the guitar? How much time each day do I want to commit to learning the guitar? Am I willing to do the work necessary?
If the answer is yes to these questions with a final destination & a definite WHY you will be ready for your 10 step practice routine for all guitar players.
Here it is!
10 Step Practice Schedule for All Guitar Players
1.) Tuning your guitar 2-5 min
2.) Finger warm-ups 5-10 min
3.) Notes review 5-10 min
4.) Chord shapes review 5-10 min
5.) Scale pattern review 5-10 min
6.) Riffs & songs review 5-10 min
7.) Reading the sheet music 5-10 min
8.) Hammer-ons, bends, slides etc. 10-15 min
9.) Rhythm techniques 10-15 min
10.) Lead guitar soloing 10-15 min
** focus on these 10 things when practicing your guitar daily. If there are some things you don’t know yet, warm up with what you do know & then proceed to work on learning the rest.
Try to learn something new every day. That way you’ll accelerate your learning & reach your goals much faster.
But this will only happen if you do two things:
1.) Don’t get discouraged by slow growth in certain areas causing you to quit
2.) Work on these areas to get better at them so the growth & development is faster.
You only get better at doing something (anything) by continuously doing it over & over again. So get to work, develop a practice routine & before you know it you’ll start getting good & having fun in the process.
The beginning is the hardest in learning guitar (acoustic or electric) but if you develop good practice habits you’ll get over the hurdles & feel better about yourself because you will be getting closer to your destination.
