Welcome to the 3rd instalment of the Guitar Domination Podcast. In this podcast, we talk about finding a guitar teacher, and more specifically, if you should actually get one, how you find a good teacher and what to look out for in a teacher.
Many guitarists have limiting beliefs, but some, particularly those who are older or lack confidence have some that don`t just hold back their playing but actually sabotage it on a large-scale – often to the point it ruins their playing.
In this post, I want to share with you some stupid myths and weird beliefs that guitarists have and help you to see why they are nonsense and why they hold back your playing.
In this post, which is a first here at Guitar Domination I have asked 15 of my favourite guitarists/teachers from all around the world to share their best advice on how you can improve your guitar skills.
There are some absolute nuggets of gold dust shared in this post and some unique ideas that you may not have considered.
In this new blog post, the very first of 2017, I`ll show you how a simple infographic (which, by the way, you can download for free at the bottom of the post) will help you transform your guitar playing to make it more fun, productive and much more inspirational – while helping you sky-rocket your levels of motivation on the guitar.
Today I am going to take you through a really powerful concept and one that will save you many hours, days, weeks and months learning and improving your guitar playing.
If you apply this simple method of learning the guitar you could make a couple of years’ worth of progress in much less time. It would be wrong and inaccurate of me to give you an exact figure but this method will save you time.
That is the possibilities of ‘Power Burst’ learning.
Recently, I asked you to fill out a survey and give me some feedback on exactly what topics, songs and techniques you want to learn via this blog.
The responses were great and there were way more than I had expected so thank you very much to everyone who filled out the survey. I have taken a few hours to dig deep and analyse the data and here are the results and the changes I’ll be making because of your input.
Many years ago a fellow and more experienced guitar teacher told me about this powerful concept.
The idea of teaching you to empower yourself is this: You learn the ability to understand and see exactly how to spot your own mistakes when learning and practicing the guitar.
These days most of my private students are adults. A few years ago there was a healthy split between teaching adults and children the guitar. This included the days in the week I used to teach children at a school.
These days, however, I am far too busy with Guitar Domination to teach in the school and only have a couple of students under the age of 18.
In fact, the majority of my private students are over the age of 40. And this is the way I like it.
I recently had a big debate over at Reddit with a fellow guitarist. This debate could have been infuriating but it actually was quite useful as it highlighted a certain flaw that experienced guitarists have when sharing their knowledge with less experienced players.
If you are learning to play guitar or you still consider yourself to be a beginner, you`ll find this post very handy – especially if you learn from others, either in person or online.
