guitar playerWant to be a better player? Of course we all do. That’s why we practice. So why does it seem like all that practice time isn’t paying off? It could be because you’re not practicing the right stuff. Guitarists tend to associate the term chops with playing fast. And while technical proficiency is definitely part of the equation, there’s a lot more to chops than just burning through scales. To really grab a listener’s attention you’ve got to play with confidence and conviction. You need accuracy, dexterity, and a solid sense of time. The good news is that if you strive for all these things, the speed will come.
