A Guitar Lesson to Help You Develop Your Vision
Have you ever done any of the following?
1. Made excuses for not practicing because you "didn't have time"?
Unless your name is Steve Vai, chances are you've done at least one of the above!
They are all symptoms of having a lack of vision.
What do I mean by vision? Vision in
this context is having a clearly defined picture in your mind's eye of how you would
like to play. It must be a crystal clear, exciting and inspiring picture!
Without an absolutely clear picture of what you would ideally like to sound like, you will not know what you need to practice in order to realise that vision. You will also probably lose the drive and motivation to practice daily for many years until you can play like your vision. You may even start using the loser's mantra which is "I don't have time to practice".
Make sure that it is detailed. What techniques are you a master of? What songs can you play? What bands are you in? How many students do you teach? How does it feel when you play like you do?
At the end of every time you do this, write down one small new detail about your vision. By the end of 30 days you should be feeling so excited that you'll want to practice 24/7!
