Polls are important for keeping this site relevant to you, the reader. I want GuitarTeacher.com to help you play guitar better and the feedback these polls provide helps me shape the the lessons I post here. With this in mind, if you can take a moment to complete the poll below I would genuinely appreciate it. It should be fun! And informative!
Practicing long and hard is no guarantee that you will achieve all of your goals on the guitar. But not practicing guarantees that you won’t achieve any of your goals on the guitar. There is no avoiding that practice is a primary component of moving your guitar playing towards where you want it to be.
I have heard and read all ranges of answers for how much guitarists practice, from “I never practice” to Steve Vai’s monk-like “10-Hour a Day” practice sessions. I have provided some quick tips on practicing in previous posts. Coming up, I have a series of posts devoted to the subject of guitar practice in more detail. These cover practice routines, structuring your practice time, developing proper practice “mind set” as well as covering tools and resources to get more out of your practice sessions.
But to start I want to know more about you - here’s the poll (it’s also in my sidebar):
Do you practice every day? Every other day? How long is a typical practice session? Do you have a routine, do you just wing it or do you just “jam”? I would love to get comments below to add on top of the poll results. I think we could all learn a lot! I will weigh in with my 2 cents without trying to influence the poll before it is complete.
I’m looking forward to seeing the results on this one!
