Everyone always talks about bad habits. Make sure if you're self taught that you should watch out you don't form any bad habits.

Pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the f***ing car.
I love pulp...
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair...

I will find this girl.

Anchoring is a fairly popular habit... some guitarist dont think its that bad.. but it definatly slows down your playing and throws off the time
