Quick Practice Tips – Daily Blog – Day 4

Welcome to day 4 and another brand new expert Guitar practice tip from our London Guitar Teachers

Tip 4:  End on a high note!

Whatever’s In your practice routine, or whatever new things you’re covering that day, finish on a positive.  Don’t walk away from the guitar having just had an unsuccessful moment.  You’re a guitarist who is always improving and developing and aspiring to something, so don’t finish a session on a negative note.

Of course, this includes being aware that what a positive note is can be a sliding scale.  If you’re trying to increase your speed of a solo from 60 bpm to 200 bpm, then finishing a practice session having worked it up to 90 bpm is a hugely positive step.  Remember this!  You don’t have to have literally completed everything in order to finish positively.

The point is – resolve any problems or confusions before you finish

Day 5’s tip coming tomorrow.

Good luck and happy playing!
