“How long does it take to learn guitar?”

Screen Shot 2014-07-19 at 9.24.50 pmWhile there is no exact answer to this question the best answer I can offer you is 2 years if you practice 30 minutes a day based on average expectations but there are definitely ways to decrease this number.

Deliberate Practice

The term ‘deliberate practice’ in terms of guitar practice refers to practicing the guitar in such a way that your practice is meaningful and focused on what matters for improvement. Its very easy to randomly practice different songs or exercises without really having a clear purpose or direction. A good example would be a scale. Your guitar teacher might give you a scale to practice but do you really understand why you are practicing the scale? It may even be possible that a certain scale is a waste of time based on your goals. For example if you want to be a pure blues guitarists practicing a melodic minor scale is probably not the best use of your time if you want to reach your goal sooner rather than later.

The Pareto Principle (often called the 80/20 rule) suggests that 80% of results come from 20% of your efforts. G4 Guitar is all about maximising by focusing on the 20% that matters most.
