hey, I think most of us know about practicing sales and exercises slowly making sure they are clean but how do you go about practicing a song? i find that when playing a song my concentration kinda goes off of technique and so i play differently to when im practicing. so how can i do about practicing a song?

Practice it by little sections over and over until you got the section down the way you want, and then keep going.

depends how advanced you are...
I usually play with the song first go, record it then see which parts i needa work on and go through them before running through the song again.
But i'd advise listening to the song first to get it in your mind...

I know probably everyone is gonna disagree with me, but I don't really learn songs in sections. First I listen to the song a bunch of times, usually on car rides and stuff, then I look at the music and play it through until I can play it right with the recording...I only repeat a section if I'm having a horribly hard time with it. I find that if I don't focus so much on getting it perfect, as I do on enjoying myself, I don't get frustrated and eventually I can play it pretty near perfectly without exerting too much effort. I play suzuki violin, and I try as well as I can to apply it to guitar. I think it's different for everyone though, everyone learns at a different pace in a different way

well i find that at a slow tempo i can parts of the song okay but as soon as i try to play it to a backing track (or the actual cd) it all falls apart. I might try finding that slow downer thing so i can slow down the backing track.

Pretty much what a few guys above me said. Take it slow and in sections and you should have it in no time. Accuracy, not speed, is the key.
