Practice These 3 Guitar Skills To Become More Creative

It’s not true that natural talent dictates whether you can or cannot become creative as a musician. All musicians have the potential for creativity.

Becoming creative simply requires practicing skills in the same way you would practice anything else on guitar.

Here are three guitar skills you must master to develop musical creativity:

Guitar Skill #1. Fretboard Visualization

Without developing the skill of fretboard visualization, it’s a struggle to be creative while improvising or trying to solo (without using a bunch of stock licks). However, fretboard visualization goes far deeper than simply memorizing notes on guitar.

Mastering this guitar skills requires you to visualize all chords, scales, arpeggios and intervals in any key all over the fretboard. This helps you to solo freely in any key without becoming lost or playing notes that sound bad over the chords you are soloing.

Guitar Skill #2. Guitar Phrasing

As you know after watching the video, you become much more emotionally expressive in music when you understand how to phrase well.

A lot of guitar players overlook this aspect of their playing in order to play as fast as possible or with great technique.

Later, they realize they are unable to play anything that sounds musical and regret not learning how to phrase. Sometimes they even give up on this aspect of being creative and blame it on not having natural skill.

When you practice guitar phrasing, you give yourself the ability to express precise emotions whenever you play guitar solos no matter how fast you are playing or if you have advanced technique or not.

Guitar Skill #3. Improving Your Ear

Without developing a good ear in music, it’s hard to be very creative. As soon as you improve your ear, you notice that you are able to hear notes in your mind before you even play them on the guitar.

When you develop excellent skills in this area and learn music theory, you are able to easily play any chord, lick, riff or solo without needing to guess what the notes will sound like when you play them.

You already know the specific note names and locations on the fretboard for whenever you need to play them.

All of these skills can be practiced and mastered just like any other guitar skill. When you master them, you become a much more creative musician.

Why A Small Amount Of Guitar Practice Time Is Enough

It’s not true that you must practice 3 or more hours each day to get good at guitar.

You become a better guitarist by practicing effectively on a consistent basis (regardless of how much time you spend).

These are the main reasons why you can still become a great player even if you only have limited time to practice:

Practicing Consistently And Frequently Gets Results

Regardless of how much time you have available for guitar practice, you get better results when you practice consistently and frequently.

To do so, use a guitar practice schedule that keeps you working on the right things, helps you stay organized and ensures you get better a little bit each day.

Improve the quality of your guitar practice by taking lessons with a great teacher who has been proven to get excellent results for others. This kind of teacher understands how to keep you from getting off track and motivates you to practice every day in order to get better.

You Probably Have More Practice Time Than You Think

Guitar players often believe they can only practice in big blocks of many hours at once. This makes it feel difficult to find available time to practice so much (and can seem overwhelming).

When you practice guitar in short blocks of 10-15 minutes several times per day, you eliminate these problems and accomplish a lot more than you’d ever think possible. Practicing guitar in short bursts helps you maintain focus, which improves the quality of your practice.

Compare this to practicing for many hours in a row – No one can maintain 100% for this period of time, so the overall quality of your practice drops exponentially.

Becoming A Great Guitarist Doesn’t Require Practicing Many Hours Each Day

Mediocre guitar players often blame their lack of progress on not having enough time to practice. Great guitarists know that progress is made not through how much time they spend practicing, but how effective and efficient their practice is.

Even with little time to practice every day, you become a great guitarist when you focus on getting the most out of your efforts. To make your practice as effective and efficient as possible, work together with a great guitar teacher.

This helps you make massive progress in your playing fast, even when practicing less than an hour per day.

Fact: Getting taught by an expert helps you become a better guitarist much faster.

Here is just some of the proof based on what my guitar students have said about taking lessons:
