Running Out of Time

August 10th, 2009 by Jeff Vivrette

“Last week I was so busy doing other things that had to be done that I didn’t have any time to practice my guitar”.

As a guitar teacher, I hear it all of the time. That good old standard excuse that almost everyone uses when they asked how much time they have spent practicing their instrument.

Some of you reading this now might be thinking “that sounds like me” or “I want to start playing guitar but I know I’m going to fall into that category myself”.

Well I have good news for you!

Regardless of how much time you have, or don’t have, there is always time to practice your guitar and I can show you how!

I know, I know…… some of you are saying “I have too much homework to practice guitar” or “how can I practice guitar when I have to go to work and raise a family”? The problem is not with having enough time to practice guitar. The problem is with the way most of us think about how we are supposed to practice guitar.

Most people think they have to spend hours every day practicing guitar to get good at it. I’m telling you now that if you think you have to spend even an hour every day practicing to get good at it, you’re wrong!

You heard me correctly; I said you do not even have to spend an hour every day practicing to get good at guitar. I will even be so bold as to say you don’t have to EVER spend an hour practicing on any day to get good at guitar!

Now don’t read this the wrong way. I’m not saying that you will not get better results with practicing correctly for longer periods of time. What I am saying is that if you are putting off playing guitar because you do not have a certain amount of time to practice, then today is your day!

With the proper guidance of a capable guitar instructor, you can use whatever time you have available to practice and see positive results on a consistent basis. Do you have 30 minutes, 20 minutes, 15 minutes, and 10 minutes or even just 5 minutes to practice because of a crazy schedule? Then let me show you how to take whatever time you have and use it in the most effective way possible towards learning to play guitar, or improving your current skill level.
