Supercharge Your Guitar Practice with Timeboxing! Lesson on JustinGuitar
One thing which I think does help with motivation and overcoming procrastination is to do some physical exercise. If I go for a bike ride I seem to have a clearer mind and more enthusiasm to pick up my guitar when I get back home.
Just wondering how many modules will be in course 3. I completed the original beginners course and started the intermediate. I decided to go back and complete the new beginner course before moving forward. I m just trying to figure out how to proceed because it looks like there is more to come in beginner course 3.
Oh wow such a timely reminder to really “use” my practice time wisely. I’ve just realised that I have been mindlessly working through my whole practice schedule every day (albeit in small chunks) but doing it in a tick boxing sort of way. Practice moveable G scale - tick (having only played it once and forgotten to name the notes ). The message for me is … must do better!! Reminds me of my school days lol
I am so glad you said look at gear on the internet counts as guitar time haha
I’ve been following this approach since I started the (old) beginner’s course over 2 years ago, and I’ve found it very helpful. I would describe myself as someone who likes to be organised, so it works well for me. One extra benefit I’ve found is that it encourages me to practice a modest amount every day.
I agree with Justin. You should always spend half your practice time with fun activities. For me that is learning and playing songs. I don’t know if it is the best way, but I do the fun stuff in the first half, so I look forward to my practices.
