How To Take Your Guitar Playing To A Whole New Levelby Dwayne Smith Dwayne Smith
There’s only one truth when it comes to playing the guitar, there’s room for improvement. This is true even for professionals who’ve been playing for years. There will always be something new to learn and another level to which you can aspire to.
Whether you’re just starting out or are very good at playing the guitar, consider the following tips to help you grow even further in your playing.
Learn new techniques:- After playing the guitar for a while, you’ll probably find that you’re comfortable with certain techniques or a certain style of playing. You may even be quite good at playing in this style. However, if you want to take your skills to a whole new level, consider learning new techniques. This will probably take you out of your comfort zone but will add a whole new skill set to what you already have.
Invest in the right guitar:- Your current guitar may not be the right instrument for learning the new techniques you’re after. If you have an electric guitar and are hoping to learn some flamenco techniques, you’d better begin searching for a Spanish guitar for sale.
On the other hand, you wouldn’t want to search for a classical guitar for sale when you want to learn some metal playing techniques.
Take some lessons:- Invest in some classes. While it is possible to learn guitar techniques on your own, there’s a lot you can learn by taking a lesson. Lessons also help to keep you accountable. You will progress much faster and therefore, keep your motivation up.
Practice, practice, practice:- There’s no better way to improve in skill than through practice. Practicing chords and playing scales may seem like a tedious task, but it’s very important when learning a new technique. These exercises are what is required to form a new habit. They are the most important thing to do when you want to take your skill to a new level.
Put your new skills to the test:- You can take your practice further by putting the new skills you’ve learned to the test. Play with your friends or other musicians and listen to fruits of all those hours of practice. Playing with other musicians is a great way to hone your skills. It will help improve your rhythm, increase your awareness and improvisation skills.
Don’t get comfortable at the level you currently are. There’s always room for improvement.
