You need passion and inspiration
To become truly great at anything in life requires a fire from within.
Learning to play the guitar is definitely no different.
You see, the main issue at hand is inspiration…
If you are inspired, you will do whatever it takes to become great at what you do.
You will be passionate and willing to practice.
Learning the guitar at the end of the day is more to do with the willingness to practice than anything else.
It is easy to say that you are passionate about learning, but the real test lies in your private practice room!
Of course, great training will help you to continue when the going gets tough.
The truth is you need that fire…. that fire that will make you improvise with Mixolydian b6 mode for 4 hours without stopping, that fire that will make you find all the major chords on string groups 123, 234, 345, 456!
Without that fire, it will be really hard to get that the level that you want to get to!
Stephen Covey was absolutely correct when he wrote a chapter on “Begin with the end in mind” in his best seller 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
You see, when you have the vision then the fire will burn!
So be inspired, have a vision! Be on fire and passionate and it will show in your guitar playing! (Even if it takes some time to get there)
