realistic expectations

I’ve just released a brand-new episode of the Acoustic Asylum podcast.

It’s all about the topic of setting realistic expectations or facing the pain of eternal frustration…


In this new episode, I want to give you a reality check on the truth about learning guitar…

I want to tell you why you should be aware of what others say about how long it took them to get good at guitar…

… And I want to give you some tips, advice, and hope so you can go about your journey of improving your guitar playing in the most enjoyable way possible.

I also share two stories about two of my old students.

Dave and Paul.

You’ll learn a lot from both of these students.

Not just how to practise the guitar, but how other people may not be telling you the whole truth about what it’s like to learn guitar.

Both of these stories will highlight the important points in the podcast and help to keep you on track with your playing.


Don’t forget you can get a free copy of my eBook 13 Ways to Escape the Acoustic Asylum for free. To get it, simply leave the podcast a review and let us know by emailing us and we will send it over.

You can check out the new episode below if you have an iPhone device.
