How much should I practice?

As I mentioned before, you don’t have to practice hard if you practice “smart”. It’s a great feeling when you are learning and progressing and it’s a great joy for me as a teacher to see my students grow. I would suggest you practice a minimum of one hour every day.I used to practice up to 6 hours a day but I was a music student and working full-time as a musician. If you work outside of music you will not have time to practice that much. Instead,

  • Practice in the way I teach you and copy me 100% until you understand the basics. Once you master the basics and have a strong foundation of knowledge about playing guitar, then you could develop your own style by adding and improving the material with your own ideas.
  • Identify your weaknesses or bad habits then fix them so you can improve your skill.
  • Be patient and prepared to work hard. There is no one in the world who can teach you to be a great guitarist overnight but if you practice hard and smart, you will progress very fast.

Don’t wait until you have time to practice, because it will never happen as we all have a hectic lifestyle these days. You just have to make time to practice or don’t bother learning.
