You sit down and work through what you want to learn. I can't say I've heard of any other ways of practicing.
#5

I hope that was a joke.

TS, I'd just advise taking it one step at a time; don't rush yourself. Learn what you want to learn and invest in a tutor if you feel you really need one.

He is not the best ever. Sure he's brilliant, but there's people around that are 10x the guitarist he is. Jeff Healey for example is basically Hendrix, but blind, and plays guitar upside down on his lap. He died 2 months ago though :sad

anyway, just practise the songs you enjoy listening to, then try altering them / interpreting them to your own style. Btw, the guy who I quoted didn't mention how Herman Li practises which made it a pointless comment.

That's how to become a terrible guitarist. How will shredding constantly sound good throughout songs? Even DragonForce don't shred constantly. If shredding is all you can do, how do you play a slow solo? Or a chord? Or sweep? There's so many flaws in that comment.

Also, you learn to "shred" by having control. You gain control by playing slow. Shredding all the time will result in a sloppy player.

Just practise things you like, try many different types of music and that's all. When you play try playin faster/slower adding some extra notes. If you are exhausted just stop.
I think thats all. You won't even see when you get skill :P
#19
The best kind of practice is to be critical about your own playing, question not only what you do wrong, but also what you do (or sometimes THINK you do) right in order to turn to the right technique, accuracy, and feel. The most important thing however, is to have fun.
#20
well, i dont practice persay. not to say i dont play all the time. but i enjoy playing, and learning the guitar. therefore, i dont consider my practicing to be practice.

thats the best way, not to think of it as something you gotta do. as something you wanna do.

master the basics... then build on them.. increasing the tempo n notes etc. etc.

u gotta walk before running..


and before walking.. you gotta crawl.


most importantly.. you gotta enjoy what you're playing.. dont turn into a robot just playing randomly to get better.. enjoy the music.

its a long road.. n we have plenty of time to reach the end.

Scales, chords, songs.

There's really nothing more to it than that. Just how much you do, and whether or not you rush yourself.

I've found that learning scales to a metronome, then getting faster and pushing it faster works a hell of a lot.

Learn things that look hard. Don't stop.
