As part of his book “Outliers”, Malcolm Gladwell stated that it requires ten thousand hours of training to master an art form or subject. But with guitar (as well as other skillsets) the amount of time you spend training is merely part of the puzzle. You also need to understand what and HOW to rehearse to get the most out of all your guitar practice time.

Five more months had past in Hamburg and if they had not got in trouble they may have stayed another year if the police didn’t throw then out. The problems began when Peter Eckhorn, opened a top ten club and began to lure Reeperbahn club employees away including the Kaiserkeller’s fearful bouncer Horst Fasher and most of his thugs. Rosa, the wash room (prelly’s) attendant was also lured away.

If you want power – try leaning into your kicks and get all of your weight behind that kick. Otherwise you are only kicking with you leg.

2 Minutes: Stretching – Getting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or even Tendonitis is really a bummer. You can prevent the pain simply by adequately stretching out before you play. Do several wrist and shoulder stretches in order to relax everything up prior to beginning. You could do these while you are listening to your pre-practice songs.
Alternatively, you could come up with a riff you like and then go on to transpose it or move it up to the desired scale in which you wish to set the song. This is a simple way to bring variety and verve into a song, which might otherwise just sound very ordinary. For example Day Tripper by The Beatles in which the same riff is played in both in the key of E and A. Lastly, even if you think you sound horrible, keep playing. You never know when you’re going to hit upon the next sensation.
