How To Design Your Guitar Training Routine

Having a balanced practice routine is essential if you want to become a versatile guitarist. If you just practice one ortwo things, sure you'll get great at those things...but you'll be weak in other key areas.

In this lesson you'll learn how to create a practice routine that is well-balanced and willhelp you work towards your ultimate vision of how you would like to play.

I generally categorise what I practice into one of seven areas:
Repertoire (Covers).
Ear Training.
Music Reading.

Everything that you practice will fit into one or more of the above areas. For example,if you are learning a very challenging cover tune by transcribing it off the CD you areessentially working on your technique, repertoire and ear training at the same time. Ifyou also write down the song in standard notation, you will also be developing yourmusic reading skills.
