Have you ever felt like your guitar playing is improving really slowly?
You’re not the first!
If you’re using good technique, practicing the right things, putting in an adequate amount of practice and seeing a good teacher – chances are you’re improving FASTER than you realise!
It just seems slow.
Remember when you’d visit your relatives as a kid? They’d say “wow, you’re growing fast!” While you think “I am?”
Being the one who looks at yourself every day and measures yourself once a week – it can feel like you’re not growing at all.
But to people who don’t see you regularly – it’s a different story!
Improving your guitar playing can often feel very much the same.
Something I encourage my students to do is record themselves playing, then watch the video back after a certain amount of time.
They generally say “wow! I’ve improved a lot more than I realise!”
Trust in the process and KEEP GOING!
Remember: You may not be there yet, but you’re closer than you were yesterday.
