New beginnings are not always for the faint of heart. That goes for new music, especially music beyond your comfort zone. Just remember the journey always begins with a single step (and sometimes a little push).

One of the main problems I have found with students over the years is the organizational aspect when they learn to play guitar. At the beginning, it isn’t too difficult because there isn’t that much to work on. However, as you grow in proficiency and increase your repertoire, it becomes more important to have a game plan for growth and progress in organizing practice.

Guitar sight reading seems to be the area most neglected by students and even professionals alike. If we take an honest look at our ability, then we would probably all conclude that our sight reading skills could use some work. Maybe we need to rethink our commitment to sight reading. #guitarist #guitarplayer #musicnotes #guitar #guitarra #classicalguitar #acousticguitar

Boulez has denied t...
