It's pretty simple. It boils down to math. This guy breaks it down. He's really talking about public speaking but uses the same math that it take to get good at anything. He mentions what musicians do when they practice. Sound awful. It's true. Musicians often try things they can't play, things they are not sure about. It's part of it. How muchc you practice every day is a big part of as you are really fighting the clock to get to the magical 10,000 hour mark.

I was going to object to 10,000 being the magic formula - but this video is nuanced and I agree with it!

It's a pretty well trodden idea at this point, but it's still relevant imho. Pertains to just about anything one wants to get really good at. That's what I've always liked about guitar. You can't fake it, buy it, be born a brilliant player, you gotta earn it. Step by step. You gotta put in the practice. You can come from any background, high or low, you still got put in the time.

Good news is anyone is only 10k hours away from being darn good at anything they want!
