Topic: Guitar Practice - Suggestions..??
I'm sure there's a few guitar players on this forum - this question really goes out to them.
I've been playing for a long time now - about 41 of my 53 years - and I've never figured out how to consistently get the most out of those times when I'm able to sit down and practice. Alot of the time, I'll just revert to playing licks and songs that I've played a thousand times before and could do in my sleep - or I'll get bored and turn the tv on - plug my guitar into my line 6 POD and just fool around going up and down the neck - just playing lots of notes without any purpose or direction.
And when my wife and young son come home - and those precious two hours to myself are over, I just feel like I've squandered a chance to really get some serious preactice in. And I don't feel like I've progressed at all.
The one bright spot right now is that I'm waiting for my Joe Bonamassa cd's to arrive from Amazon. com (after hearing him for the first time a week ago, I immediately ordered ALL of his cd's) so I'm going to enjoy playing them and trying to figure out alot of those licks over the next few months/ years.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
