Focus On Your Fretting Hand And Picking Hand Seperately

If one of your hands is playing inefficiently this will cause sloppy mistakes even if you are playing well in the other hand.

Most guitar players practice everything in the same way:

They play with both hands and don't divide their focus on one hand at a time.

This makes it harder to get better which leads to tons of frustration.

Here is what to do:

Work on developing each hand separately from the other (sometimes).

For example:

Only practice picking motions while deadening the strings with your fretting hand or mute the strings using your picking hand and fret notes using your fretting hand only (don't play them with legato - simply place your fingers down on the right frets).

Create Micro Goals For Your Guitar Practice

Achieving great things in your guitar playing requires setting specific, tangible goals over the short, medium and long term.

That said:

There is a way to make this much easier.

Set micro goals for every practice session.

These goals should be small enough to achieve during a single session but also big enough that you can track your progress with them.

For example: 

- Be able to play something a few ticks faster on the metronome.

- Memorize the notes you need to play to master a particular lick or solo.

- Repeat an exercise 500 times to ingrain it into your muscle memory.

Align this with your larger goals and track your progress every session to get the greatest benefit.

Cultivate Tons Of Motivation To Practice

Here is an easy way to motivate yourself to practice guitar that works very effectively:

First, pick up your guitar and practice for just a few minutes.

If you don't feel like practicing, no problem - put down your instrument and allow yourself not to practice for a few minutes.

However, in most cases you are going to want to keep practicing and will often practice for much longer.

Here's why:

  1. It's usually harder to begin doing something than it is to keep doing it. When you practice guitar for a few minutes, it becomes easier to keep going than it is to stop.
  2. Practicing for a few minutes  is something everyone can do regardless of their schedule. Everyone has this amount of time to practice guitar.

Now you know how to improve your fretting hand guitar speed and get faster in less time.

The next step is to begin working with an experienced guitar teacher to develop your overall technique.
