In this lesson, we'll set your first practice routine with everything we've learned so far. Focusing on the right skills at the right time will make you improve faster. Using My Practice Assistant will keep you accountable and motivated!
20-MINUTE BEGINNER GUITAR PRACTICE SESSION
Yes, you read it right! Only 20 minutes per day will make you improve faster. Short sessions help with focus, and regular practice help to build your muscle memory.
At this point of your guitar journey, some level of sore things is normal. If that's your case, short but regular sessions will help you better than long ones! If you're struggling with painful fingers, check out these 3 tips to avoid finger pain.
If you're following the Beginner Course, you know how to play D and A, how to move faster between chords, and a simple strumming pattern. It's a lot to practice! The secret is to have fun, and that's why we'll dedicate a timeslot to practice songs you like.
Here's what I suggest as your first practice routine:
● Chord Perfect – D Chord: 3 minutes
● Chord Perfect – A Chord: 3 minutes
● Anchor Finger Practice: 2 minutes
● One Minute Changes - A to D: 1 minute
● One Minute Changes - D to A: 1 minute
● Song work: 10 minutes
