Learning Guitar Are You Practicing It Properly?

A very common mistake often noticed by instructors during guitar classes in San Jose is that the guitar players get stuck at a level because they don’t practice in a way that forces them to move ahead efficiently. They have their basic “repertoire”, which may be really nice, but they simply keep on playing that, and not learning anything new.

To take your skills to the next level, you need to learn and master new things every day. Your basic practice session should look like this:

  ü  Tune up. Use your ears as well, not just the electric tuner.

  ü  Stretch your fingers. You don’t want your wrist or fingers.

  ü  Perform some warm-up exercises such as spider exercises across the fretboard.

It should take just a few minutes to perform the abovementioned, and this is where your practice session really starts. It is recommended to split this into the following 3 parts:

  ü  1/3 devoted to learning new stuff. This is where you advance.

  ü  1/3 devoted to using your knowledge to play music. This is the ultimate fun part.

  ü  1/3 devoted to technical aspects of playing guitar and scales.


According to the professionals delivering guitar lessons in San Jose, following this routine will definitely help to progress your guitar playing skills efficiently!
