This is a new idea, and still very much in the development stage!
For my students, I am making available a number of the worksheets and lessons we use. Feel free to download anything that takes your fancy, and bring it along to the lesson if you wish. After downloading, a number of them should have a link to my Soundcloud page where you can then also listen to the song online.
I will be adding more material in the coming weeks, so do please check back regularly. If anything doesn’t work, do let me know!
Mixcloud is a website that enables users to compile and distribute their own radio shows. I thought it might be interesting way to present some of the guitar music I was (and still am) inspired by. The first is a compilation of tracks by the legendary American guitarist, Chet Atkins. I’ll try to post a few more in the coming months.
This is a question I am often asked. Ideally, of course, it is best to set aside 20 minutes daily. However, it is often difficult to get into a routine like this, so the most important thing is to get into the habit of trying to play every day, even if just for a few minutes. It is best to keep the guitar easily available, ideally on a stand, then, rather than immediately ploughing through the latest challenging piece, simply play your favourite songs and pieces (after a suitable warm-up, of course!) After this, you could then perhaps practice your latest piece or exercises in a more focussed way.
