Monthly Practice Plan – January 2020

Most techniques on the guitar carry over to other applications. For example, learning even basic fingerpicking can help you make smooth chord changes. Since you pick specific notes, your chord changes have to be very quick.

Another example that we’ll get into this month is learning Bluegrass style progressions and embellishments. Even if Bluegrass isn’t your jam, the same techniques are used in Country, Blues, Folk, Pop, Alternative, and Rock. You see, the guitar and its techniques are somewhat universal. 

An E chord is an E chord in any style of music. A hammer on is a hammer on no matter if you play acoustic or electric. And that’s exactly why I like to have such a diverse range of lessons here. The single most important thing you can do to progress as a guitar player is to not limit yourself to one style.

So as you’re working through these lessons, keep an open mind. All of your time and efforts will be rewarded. In the short term, and especially in the long term.

And if you’re ready, grab your guitar, tune up, and let’s dive in.
