Thoughts On Practicing
July 17, 2013 11:06PM
Brooke (Canary’s singer) came over tonight to work on some new covers. I hadn’t touched my guitar at all today, and man, did it show.
I go through phases of believing I need to practice every day for as much as I possibly can. Then I do the exact opposite and think that I need to not practice for as much time as I can afford. Lately I’ve been more in the latter but I’m somewhere in the middle to be honest.
I know I play better when I practice more. That makes sense though, doesn’t it? I was telling a friend of mine the other day how I don’t regret anything I didn’t do in high school - except for that I didn’t practice enough. I missed a lot of things (most of said things I found and still do find to be moronic, but to each their own). I practiced a LOT in high school. I probably averaged three and a half hours per day for four years. But imagine if I had doubled my average!
I need to do two things:
Practice more, and practice better.
Go to bed.
