Over the years, I’ve shared many different frameworks to help students practise more effectively.

I am proud of all of these, but like I mentioned in yesterday’s email…

I am always keen to simplify my method of teaching guitar.

…And give you actionable, clear, and precise advice.


Well, the ‘10x Method’ is a way to do this.

At its core, it’s a combination of many of the things I teach and talk about a lot…

This includes breaking things up into small chunks, the ‘Five Times Rule’, the power of using just a little visualisation, practising using good posture, slowing things down and more…

…But what the ‘10x Method’ does is take these ideas and put them into one clear framework you can use every day on the guitar.


It works for pretty much everything you practise.

…And it’s simple (but it requires a little focus – just remember though, we should always practise with focus).

Yet if you do use it, your practice time will be more effective, you’ll remember more of what you learn, and you’ll ultimately enjoy the feeling of making real progress on the guitar.

This is something I’m talking about in today’s episode of the Acoustic Asylum podcast.


I’m sharing this method with you, along with some examples of applying it, so you can start applying it to your playing right away.

Give it a listen today and enjoy (and if you do, please do leave the podcast a review if you can).

You can check it out below if you have an Apple/iPhone device.
