Guitar Practice Tip #1: Make Your Guitar Technique As Efficient As Possible, So Your Playing Becomes Accurate And Consistent. Here Is What This Means & How To Do It:
When your guitar technique is very efficient, your hands don’t move any more than necessary to play the notes you want to hear. This helps you reduce sloppy guitar playing mistakes and play guitar faster with less effort.
Here are several simple ways to make your technique a lot more efficient for less guitar playing mistakes:
- Keep the pick as close to the strings as possible between notes. Don’t let the pick move away from the strings unless you’re skipping strings.
- Fret notes using the tips of your fingers.
- Use a stiff guitar pick. Your guitar pick should be stiff enough to not flex when you push through the string to play a note.

Guitar Practice Tip #5: Develop More Guitar Technique Than You Need. Here Is Why This Helps You:
Think of your ultimate guitar technique goals.
Perhaps you want to learn specific songs and solos, or you want to increase your speed to a certain tempo. Set your goals to play at a slightly higher level than you think you need.
Example: play a song at 120 beats per minute on the metronome when the song’s tempo is only 110.
When you have more technique (or speed) than you need, you are less likely to make guitar playing mistakes because you will rarely play near your musical limit. This means you can focus more on having fun and not struggle anymore to play the notes you want to hear.
