    THE IMPORTANCE OF GOALS AND GOAL SETTING! Day 164

    Goals are important. Too often I watch myself kill time with inane activities that don't help me progress. Keeping a healthy balance is also important, I know this too well. I don't want to reiterate the "Conceive, Believe, Achieve" cliche but it works if you work it. You are not your body.You are your only competition. Be better than you were …

    Making a backing track + Improvisation

    Making a backing track with MAJOR chords only + Improvisation. DAY 158

    I'm getting into this habit of making a quick backing track at a random tempo with almost random chords and seeing what happens. This is a weird one that contains only major chords, but switches between the keys A major and A minor. This is an honest representation of how I might find my way around chords, warts n'all. It can be difficult to say …

    Day 84

    Go Practice

    Look. Guitar isn't the most comfortable of instruments, but (and I'm sick of saying it) you get out what you put in. Yes, it's difficult and often painful but you can't deny how rewarding it is to finally nail something you've been working towards. Go practice.

    7ty 6ix

    Arpeggios in 7/8. Accending minor 7, descending diminished 7th. 7 is such an important number to me and it immediately ignites inspiration. I could go on, but I'm gonna play with this arpeggio idea a little more tonight.

    Seven and five, seventy-five.

    If playing your instrument is a chore, you're doing it wrong. Get inspired.

    Sunday Funday. I spent 4 hours writing a tune today and this video has nothing to do with it 😂 Harmonic minor is a lot of fun and the theme is sticking: if you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong. If playing your instrument is a chore, you're doing it wrong. Get inspired. YouTube is only a click away. Ask your friends. Ask your teachers. …

    If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

    I can get really anxious about posting videos and such on social media, I worry about that **** that one needn't worry about: "What if this video isn't as good as the last one?" and "what if someone notices I only have two hoodies?". This morning was heavy on the Blues, specifically Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac; I had so much fun that it inspired …
