Invest Half of Your Practice Energy in Stuff You Don't Already Know.

Rehearsing melodies that you would already be able to play through without an issue is fun and empowering yet it isn't helpful for improving you any at the instrument. Centering half of your training time on something new and testing will enable you to drive yourself to the following level. It will enable you to extend your usual range of familiarity and develop as an artist on the off chance that you continue testing yourself with new tunes that are only outside of your aptitude level.

Record Yourself Playing and Listen to It.

Do this by any basic method, regardless of whether it's only a video or sound account from a mobile phone. You'll see things about your playing that you didn't get on previously. You'll find new gaps in your playing and it will enable you to figure out what you ought to take a shot at.

Learn Playing Songs That Have Lots of Different Chords and Chords That You're Not Good at.

Pick a tune that you extremely like with a ton of harmonies (like "Hotel California" possibly?) and stick to it until the point that you have it down. This will enable you to ace new harmonies and enable you to play much more tunes. One more option for a tune with a huge amount of various harmonies is "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars. That is a decent one in case you're searching for some trying vocals as well.

Practice with a Metronome.

Here and there (not generally) you should break out the metronome and play alongside it. This will enable you to take after a predictable, outer to beat. It will likewise help prep you for playing with a drummer. Another approach to this is rehearsing with a background track or a recording. This will get you nearer to having the capacity to play with different artists on the off chance that you haven't as of now.

It's better to Practice for 5 Minutes Every day Than an Hour Once per Week.

When you rehearse your instrument (or do anything), your brain neurons starts to process it. In the long run the more your practice gets further the more it’s memorized and functioned in your brain, this is the thing that decides how great you are at whatever you're getting along (playing music for our situation). This will happen each time you rehearse. When you will sleep, your brain neurons will re-fire quickly through each example for all that you did that day. In the event that you just practice once per week, regardless of whether it's for an hour or two, this re-firing will just happen once though it would happen each night on chance that you rehearsed every day. It's smarter to rehearse regular, regardless of whether it's for less time.

Have a go at applying these tips to your training routine and get more out of your guitar practice sessions.
