12 THINGS YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW TO BECOME A BETTER PLAYER # 7

BUILD SPEED IN SMALL INCREMENTS…Build your speed up gradually don’t try to shred through pieces or songs as fast as you can before you have clean technique. Everyone wants to have speed but with out technique you are just playing fast and sloppy. Try to play to a metronome or drum beat as much as possible this will give you an external rhythm to play to and will prepare you to play with other musicians in a band fashion.

Music is not a sport it is an art form and it won’t get judged by how many notes you play but by how much you can make a few notes have meaning.
