Want to make much faster progress on guitar? Tap into your unfulfilled potential using these 3 approaches:

Approach #1: Always Practice Guitar With Clear Direction

It’s a mistake to practice without any clearly defined goals or schedule. This makes it much harder to make progress (while also making practice feel frustrating). Clearly define your musical goals in advance. Then create a guitar practice schedule centered around reaching these goals as quickly as possible. This ensures that you don't waste a lot of time and that you become the player you want to be fast.

Note: If you are unsure how to set or reach specific goals, work together with an experienced guitar teacher.

Approach #2: Focus On Improving Your Weaknesses

Don't fall into the trap of practicing only the things that are the most fun or easy to play. This only keeps you at the same level you're at – preventing you from taking your skills to the next level. Keep your guitar playing balanced by improving your weaknesses so they don't hold you back.

Ensure that you are always improving these areas by tracking your progress consistently each week. This tells you what practice approaches are working and which ones need to be refined. It also reveals your weakest areas, so you know what to work on next to improve.

Approach #3: Get Feedback From An Expert Guitar Teacher

It’s much easier to make a lot of progress in little time when you have the guidance of an expert. Find and work together with a guitar teacher who has already helped others achieve the same goals you have. Your guitar teacher will give you feedback about many mistakes in your playing that you weren’t aware of and motivate you while keeping you on track towards your goals. This makes getting better at guitar infinitely easier and a lot more fun.

Using these three guitar practice approaches massively improves the results you get. However, there are many more ways to improve the effectiveness of your practice. Check out this article about quickly improving your guitar playing and become a better player super-fast.
