From the beginner or intermediate standpoint, becoming a master seems like an impossible goal. As I've said on a few occasions, this is because it would take many lifetimes to achieve mastery if your progress continued at the same rate as it does when you first start out. However, since we know there are masters of the guitar, we can easily deduce that the rate of progress actually increases exponentially over time.
Practice method is one of the most critical aspects of mastering any instrument and, while people are reminded to practice often, there is never enough emphasis put on optimal practice technique. People tell you to practice but what they don't tell you is that if you aren't practicing correctly, practice can get you nothing but years of frustration.
Choosing the right guitar teacher is an important decision. Regardless of how you choose to improve your skills, with or without a personal coach, it takes time. We all must guard our precious time because there’s so little of it to spare. This article is all about making the correct choice to find the right guitar instructor. There’s a big payoff when you make this decision correctly.
Drop the analytical decision making and allow your many hours of practice and repetition to take control. To play expressively, allow your emotions to choose notes, rhythm, and playing techniques. Become the passenger instead of the driver. I like to think of this as “thoughtless” guitar playing.
