PRACTICE TIPS
The development of good guitar technique requires patience, persistence, and attention to detail. Don't take on too much at once. Try adding just a few songs to your daily practice routine, giving yourself time to refine them before moving on. Skipping ahead or moving on too soon may result in the reinforcement of had habits or even cause bum-out when it suddenly seems too difficult. Likewise, "skimming" a large amount of songs is simply a waste of time. There are no short cuts. By patiently working with a smaller amount of material, your progress will be much more obvious and rewarding.
When tackling each song, start slowly, paying close attention to all of the details important to its per-formance. Establishing good habits from the start is far easier than "reprogramming" later. Once you become comfortable with the song and can consistently reproduce it without mistakes, gradually raise your tempo.
I strongly suggest the use of a metronome for this procedure. The mechanized pulse is indispensable in solidifying your performance of the song rhythmically. The metronome also provides a gauge with which you can measure your progress as you gradually increase the tempo on a piece.
In regard to electric guitarists who use effects (distortion/overdrive, delay, compression, chorus, etc.) be sure to practice the exercises with dry, clean tone (no effects) at first. This will reveal any less obvi-ous mistakes and weaknesses in general execution. Once you are able to perform an exercise using dry and clean tone, add your usual effects in order to further refine your technique and ultimately achieve the desired tone.
WARNING: Never practice to the point of pain. This can cause injury to the fragile muscles and tendons of the hands and wrist. If you experience any discomfort, stop and rest your hands. Begin practicing again, only when you feel 100%.
