The difference it makes, when we are learning towards building recognizable, real life usable, end results.

  1. the motivation
  2. being able to know the expected end result
  3. the usability of the end result
  4. knowing where we are making a mistake, where to apply deliberate correction and practice
  5. no wasting time trying  to ‘achieve’ useless end results, not knowing if we are doing it right or not
  6. being able to practice pieces of it knowing they will form a recognizable end result

Similar is the superiority of practice when we learn music learning towards something we can finally play, using music that we are really familiar with.

Q: what if I don’t have the skill to play complex notes, songs, phrases?
A: a composer or arranger level teacher can build custom curriculums for you. Beginner or advanced beginner, syllabus that facilitates your next 1% improvement, without boredom and the right amount of struggle. Simple open note versions of songs and chords, Simplified slides and slurs, lesser details…

Q: how long will it take me?
A: instead of a static time limitation, adjust it with your expectations, skill level, time available to spend. Practice and growth takes time since guitar learning is transformational, not just information. BUT, When we do error oriented deliberate practice with your current skill and clear destination in mind, you know that: whatever time you spend, is spent the best way possible. If you think about it, that assures the best efficient use of our available resources.
