Best prac­tise

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY CLASSICAL -

If like many peo­ple you have a lim­ited amount of time to prac­tise, use it wisely. For one week, fo­cus on one thing. For ex­am­ple, if there is a par­tic­u­larly tricky pas­sage in a piece you are learn­ing, iso­late it, slow it right down and prac­tise it sev­eral times in a row with­out mis­takes. This means you need to be fo­cused but also very calm. Ab­so­lute pre­ci­sion is the aim, re­in­forced with ac­cu­rate rep­e­ti­tion un­til your brain and hands are con­sis­tently able to re­pro­duce the tech­niques re­quired. Al­ways stop and correct any er­rors – go back and slow down again for suc­cess­ful con­sis­tency.
