So many of us go years wasting our time in the practice room, destroying countless of hours of potential progress. I've been playing guitar for almost 17 years, and the vast majority of that I had no idea how to actually practice.
I am in no way a master, but I can't imagine what I would sound like if I had figured how to really practice 10 years ago. I don't even like to think about it. The best practice is mindful. It should stretch your limits — often by thinking more than just relaxing and playing. And above all, it must be systemized and tied to goals that are unique to your musical journey.
So if you've ever felt like your practicing is just shooting in the dark, is mismanaged, and consistently leaves you deflated, then you should get this newsletter.
But even outside of that, this is a newsletter born out of curiosity and the joy of discovering and learning about music.
I hope you feel that when you read it.
