I taught myself how to play the guitar from the age of 11 – the hard way – mainly by ear. There was simply no other way to learn back then. When I was 11, the internet still felt like a baby. But, soon people were uploading music notation/tablature, lessons on how to play the guitar, video tips, slowed down videos showing you how to play the most amazing guitar solos of all time note by note.
By the time I was 16 I was a guitar teacher. I feared the Internet. I thought to myself that “all my secrets are out there already. Anyone can become great at playing the guitar, it’s so easy now.”
Not surprisingly most people suck at playing the guitar!
I was wrong in my thoughts.
The fact is that there’s one thing between you and achieving mastery. That thing is 10,000 hours of hard work and careful practice.
The secrets are all out there. The real question is whether you are prepared to put in the 10,000 hours of practice.
Are you ready?
