Here is another Friday 10-second tip for you to enjoy…
Make a “To-Do” List
We all have things that hold back our playing in some way.
For some of you, this will be chord changes, fluency, timing, strumming patterns, lack of fluidity when moving fingers, etc.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with these things.
A good method to get over these hurdles is to use a “To-do” list.
This is a list of two or more things that you feel are holding back your playing today.
It’s well worth writing these down and spending time improving them each day.
Write them down, but focus on just one at a time.
Be specific – don’t just write “chord changes”, write the biggest chord change that is causing you the biggest issue.
Get really focused on fixing it for at least a few minutes per day.
Try to work on the one thing that is slowing down progress more than anything else.
Then, get working on it every single day.
Do that with focus and you will improve the tricky little areas in your playing one at a time, and once and for all.
