Let’s get real,
no one likes practicing guitar…
But the first thing you’re told when you pick up a guitar is the amount of practice it needs. The glorified “fretboard grease” that you need build up to get good at guitar.
So, you do it without question – you play the same 1-2-3-4 exercises again and again and again. Hoping that all the “1-2-3-4-ing” is making a difference to your playing.
But we can’t help but wonder – we’ve had the guitar around for 100’s of years now, has no one found a better way to do this? We’ve sent people to the moon, but the 1-2-3-4 exercises are the best we’ve got?
The 4 biggest mistakes
in a beginner’s practice routine
1. Lack of exercises or non-challenging routines
If you do not have exercises in your practice routine – you should’ve put them in yesterday!
Get started with a few simple 1-2-3-4 exercises as a minimum and work your way up. Yes, the 1-2-3-4 exercises can get boring, but we suggest starting with a few of them to get comfortable with the guitar.
But that’s where it ends!
As you keep progressing, make sure your exercises are getting harder. Be on the line between being able to play and having a constant challenge. Keep things challenging, fresh and exciting.
If you can check all the above boxes – you have a winning routine in your hand.

Complex music theory, finding the right lessons, figuring out the perfect tone, fighting finger fatigue and injuries, creative fatigue, the feeling of hopelessness, the feeling of not being able to play what you dream of.
The feeling in your stomach when you see a 9-year old nailing the song you’ve been working on for months! – the list is endless!
And we know exactly what that feeling is like. And we want to help!
