Avoid Making Guitar Mistakes
How to avoid making mistakes while playing the guitar
Some guitar players practice most days of the week, work hard, and are passionate about their guitar playing, but they always struggle to be able to play guitar the way they want. They are frustrated because they don’t improve fast enough, begin doubting their guitar playing potential, or even feel discouraged or angry with themselves when thinking about how long it is taking them to become a better guitar player. Philly guitar teacher, David Joel, inpires, guides, and teaches with proven techniques that will help you to grow to become an amazing guitarist!
There are specific reasons why guitar players go through such frustration and disappointment. Here are some key mistakes guitar players make and repeat over and over again that you should avoid.
Teaching yourself to play guitar
Many people attempt to teach themselves how to play guitar. It is true that some famous players were somewhat self-taught but it isn’t necessarily wise to follow that strategy. If you are 100% sure that you can build effective learning and training systems on your own, that’s great. However, if you are like most of us, doing it alone is the hardest, most time-consuming, stressful, and frustrating way to learn anything. This is a big mistake you should avoid.
Taking guitar lessons from ineffective guitar teachers
Unfortunately, many guitar teachers don’t receive any training on how to teach. What is worse is that the vast majority of teachers do little or nothing to improve their guitar teaching skills. Do your homework and find a guitar teacher who is both a player and a teacher and can differentiate between the two. Just because a person can play the guitar really well does not mean he/she can teach. Of course, you have nothing to doubt when it comes to Philadelphia guitar teacher, David Joel!
Not having a strategy to achieve your goals
We all need information, advice, help, and music to play, but without a strategic learning and training process that is designed for you, your skill level, your musical style and what you want to be able to do as a guitar player, the information won’t get you where you want to go. It is best to seek help to develop a customized strategy for you to become better.
You practice guitar in the same way your favorite guitar players practice
Have you ever read about how your favorite guitar players practice guitar and then tried to repeat the same practice routine? It seems natural to use a similar guitar practice schedule that our favorite guitar players are using but this is a mistake. Your current guitar skill level and knowledge of music are probably different from your favorite player. His/her challenges and needs are likely not the same as yours.
Once you have an effective strategy to become the guitar player you want to be, always stay focused on it. The very best way to do this is to have one primary guitar teacher who helps you to become the musician you really want to be. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take advice from other people too, but you should have one primary source of information, training, and coaching, and see the other advice as an additional resource but do not be distracted by it.
If you are in the Philadelphia area, the very best guitar teacher can be found at the David Joel Guitar Studio.
