Welcome to a new weekly 10-second tip.

If you have learnt more than 5 songs, pieces, riffs or melodies, this is how you ensure you don’t forget them.

You place them into something I call:


“Maintenance mode”


Some guitarists practise their whole repertoire every day.

The problem is, if you have a lot of material to practise, this can take an hour or more each day, and that is before you start practising newer stuff!

Other guitarists spend months learning a song but then stop practising it, and then totally forget how to play it!

“Maintenance mode” stops both of the above from happening.


It works like this:

Once you have a song in your repertoire that you are totally comfortable with…

You play it through a few times per week, ensuring you keep it fresh in your memory, and you never forget it, but without spending too much time on it.

It is simple, but it is effective.


I hope you found that useful and enjoy your Friday!
