Quick Practice Tips – Daily Blog – Day 1:

Hi everyone and welcome to our new series of daily blog posts offering you professional practice trips to maximise your Guitar or Piano practice time.

Each day we’ll offer you a professional, insightful tip that will help you notice an improvement in your playing, fast.

Tip 1:  Stop Practising What You Already Know!

Don’t stop playing what you already know – but that’s “playing” not “practice”.  If you want to improve as a guitarist, focus your practice time on what you don’t know, not what you do.

A short burst of dedicated focus on whatever it may be – A hard chord change, improving your speed, learning a new scale or solo, will pay huge dividends on your all round playing and knowledge.  Then when your practice is done, it’s play time!  This is when you play what you already know, for fun!

So separate your practice time and your play time.

See you tomorrow for tip 2.
