    Interesting article. I do a bit of teaching and really agree strongly with points 2 and 4. Too often when someone can’t play a particular phrase they’ll just keep hammering away at it getting more and more frustrated. It’s not until you slow something down and analyse it that you sort out what is going on. I usually invoke the ‘3 perfect plays’ rule. You haven’t really got something until you can play it without mistakes three times through.

    I like the point about try to make the challenge even more difficult. If you have trouble playing something at a certain speed, try playing slightly faster then pulling it back. The results can be surprising.

    Too many beginners think that it only takes practice to become a good guitar player. Practicing is important, but it is practicing the “right way” that will get you results.
