To become a great guitarist you have to FEEL the music, not just play it

This is a BIGGIE! You can't be a guitar hero overnight or even after one year. There is so much involved with being a really good musician. Just because you see someone play real fast, does not make them a good musician. FEEL YOUR MUSIC!

You MUST devote yourself to the task at hand. This can be difficult if you "don't seem to have the time" to play or practice. You will have to sacrifice some things in order
to make time for your music. For example, Friday nights may be reserved as your weekly night to go to the movies with your friends. It may be a good idea to forget that for a while and use the time more constructively to develop your skills.

Stay positive. Don't let others tell you that it can't be done or "your song sounds like two cats in a fight". You have to go through it to get to it. You may have to write ten lousy songs before you begin to write good songs. Don't let those ten lousy songs stop you! Learn from them!

What?! In order to be good at something I have to practice? Nonsense.

You know how sometimes you get the feeling that nobody's really listening?

Yeah, welcome to the internet.
