Looking for guitar lessons near you?
Getting stuck never feels good… You might have tried to play many times before, but ended up feeling angry and frustrated.
I struggled to play the guitar for a long time. I felt like I was the only one.
I found it so painful, because I really love music. I knew how good the guitar can sound. And I knew how I wanted to sound.
But when I played, it just sounded bad. I sounded like a CD player that was skipping.
There were so many pauses and breaks in my playing. I could feel my brain hurting as I went into “loading” mode thinking about what to play next.
Three Learning Mistakes You Might Have Made In The Past
Mistake #1) “I can learn on the internet or from books”
There is a lot of good information out there.
But, learning on the internet, or youtube is like walking into a library…
There is SO much information, your problem is how can you tell what you should be learning?
What order you should learn it in?
How can you know if you really understand it, who do you check with?
Mistake #2) Thinking “I am not talented enough”
Where you are stuck on guitar has nothing to do with whether you are talented enough or not.
It has everything to do with the method you are using to learn the guitar.
Mistake #3) “My friend plays guitar, they can teach me”
The important thing to remember is that being a great PLAYER, doesn't mean someone is a great teacher.
Often people who already play have totally forgotten what it was like to be stuck where you are at right now. They might not understand your challenge, and this can make you feel even worse about the problems you’re having.
To paint the picture for you - think about people who you know who can drive a car well, but you wouldn't want them to teach 17 year old you to drive…
