Get Enthusiastic About Guitar Practice

"You reap what you sow" goes the old proverb, and nay a truer word was spoken. Today's thought on guitar motivation and practice comes to you from the Rock House Blog.

"Here’s the thought. The instrument gives back to you what you put into it. If you put 30 minutes 2 or 3 times a week into your instrument that’s exactly what you’re going to get from it, not much."
And if you're not getting much from your guitar it's hard to be motivated about practicing it. But what if you set out to practice more regularly?
"But if you put 30 minutes a day 7 days a week into it, then in a short time it starts to give back to you what you are wanting. Improvement! When you see improvement you start to get excited about what you are doing."
Get the idea? If you can hang in and practice hard for a while you will get a payback. And that payback, playing what you want to, will fill you with the enthusiasm to practice even more.

Thanks to the Rock House guys for this deep thought.

I have been a beginner guitarist for too many years now. While I like the face-to-face teacher approach, these guys are the next best thing. Still a beginner, but I know where I can go for help:

Hi Dy-Sphoric,

The Rock House concept of DVD with internet support does look interesting. I hope you enjoy your learning, and let us know what you get from Rock House...

I for one like the look of their funk guitar method when I get through with current projects.

Regards,
Gary
