Do you feel disappointed for not knowing how to take your guitar playing techniques to the next level? Do you occasionally ponder on why hasn’t your blues skills improved over the past several months or so? Even if you don’t happen to be exactly a blues guitarists but a guitarist who plays other styles of music, I might still have something of huge help for you. I have been playing the guitar for quite some time now and though I will certainly not say that I am the greatest guitar player on earth, I however, think of myself as a really good one.

I have some good tips that can help you to improve your musical skills, they might not be ground-breaking ideas that will make you a master guitar player overnight but they will definitely help you improve your skills in the minimum amount of time. Those are things that I have learned with experienced and has helped me a lot over the years:

1. Perseverance is KEY!!

Keep going and keep pushing! Don’t give up on that particular song that you are trying to learn. Many people too often make that kind of mistake. They learn something, they get unbelievably excited about it at the beginning but when it becomes just a little bit harder, they just give up. This does not apply to only music, but to pretty much everything that you do in life. If you are going to give up on something because it got “a bit difficult” or because you did not see any kind of results after just a few days, then chances are, you ARE NEVER GOING TO SUCCEED in anything!!! Sorry for being really frank but this is so important: DON’T GIVE UP!!

2. Choose a song to learn and STAY FOCUS!!

Go look for 5 – 6 of your favorite blues songs (or any other genres) and select the one that you think you can learn in 3 – 4 days MAX!! If it’s going to take you more than 4 days, then chances are that the song is too hard and maybe you should just keep it for another time. Once you’ve chosen which song you want to learn, STAY FOCUS UNTIL YOU KNOW IT COMPLETELY!! Don’t move on to the next song after learning just half of it!

3. Practice every single day or if you want at least 5 times in a week!!

I know what most of you must be thinking right now; “Practice, Really?? Everybody already knows that” and that’s true but let me ask you, how many of you REALLY DO IT RELIGIOUSLY??

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT and there’s nothing more truthful than that. After you’ve finished learning a song, practice playing it over and over again, even after you’ve moved on to learning another one, come back and practice the old ones from time to time! It’s SO IMPORTANT!!

Now, here’s the little shortcut that you could use to dramatically improve your skills quickly. Have you ever used some blues backing tracks while trying to learn a song? If NO, believe me, maybe it’s time that you start doing so.

It’s really unbelievable how many professional musicians use them nowadays as well as how incredible it is that they rely so much on them. There’s a simple reason for that. They are as incredibly useful as they are important, and even more for people trying to learn an instrument!
