But, one thing is for sure - every time we learn a new idea we will each process information differently, (using our own unique learning patterns in our own specific order and sequence).
Generally, if we can't quickly nail down a guitar part, we're probably not applying the correct learning sequence at that particular point in time. An effective solution can be a practice system/method that involves using a two part learning process.
This process will:
- Involve several different learning strategies;
- Have us designing a new group of learning sequences that cause the riff (or the lick) to become more highly aware to our senses, (i.e., how we hear it, how we see it on our guitar neck and how we're feeling it when we play through the idea).
Having a system like this in place can shave off hours of frustration when learning new ideas on our instrument. Everything is covered in the video lesson plan below... Enjoy!
