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 guitar solos, or you want to increase your speed to a certain number of notes per minute. Set your goals to play at a slightly higher level than you think you need. Example: learn to play a song at 120 beats per minute on the metronome even if the song’s actual tempo is only 110 beats per minute.
When you have more technique (or speed) than you need, you are less likely to make 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.
