Hello GMC.

I wanted to share something that I've noticed that saved me a lot of wasted hours and practice. You may already be familiar with it. It's basically the concept of energy and how you redirect it to whatever you want to accomplish in life. You may have noticed that the results of your practice are very dependent on not only your focus but also your attitude towards your practice. By focus, you are redirecting your energy towards your hands, and whether that energy is positive or negative has a huge influence on the results.
If you hate practicing and your only goal is to impress others with your guitar and not because you by your heart want to learn something...If you during your practice get frustrated, have a negative attitude and only do it for superficial goals and especially if your mind is somewhere else, you can only expect very little results, if any at all.
However, if you say to yourself "This is gonna be challenging, but playing the guitar is awesome and I love it." and you approach your practice with a positive focused mindset, you will be amazed at how greatly you will improve. This is of course with the premise that you practice regularly and that your goal is to learn something that's gonna improve your skills.
I've wasted so many hours every day practicing the same scales over and over again with the goal of becoming faster. Did I become faster? Not much because I practiced mindlessly and I mostly hated it. It was not until I started practicing some new scales, which challenged my mind and hands and required more focus that I not only learned new scales but also improved my speed. And you wanna know why? Because positive energy is 1000x stronger than negative energy. It's the law of attraction in it's purest form.
All the greatest guitarists in the world did not practice with the goal of becoming rich or famous. They all wanted to become great guitarists from their own passion and not for some other superficial goals.

For me, the journey is everything. The destination is there only as an excuse for journey biggrin.gif

I could use lots of this positive energy today. I sold pickup from one guitar and tried to re-wire the other. I ran out of the wire, the pups' hot is so fragile and thin I'm afraid to break it and both new pickup and spare wire will arrive in 1 package in a few days.

Here's some bits of positive power smile.gif
