Hi everybody,
I started keeping a guitar diary a few weeks after I started playing, so I could track my improvments and stick to a solid lesson plan and what not. I thought I would share it with ya'll and see if anyone else does the same. And yes I know it's slow, so any advice on how to speed my playing up would be great, unfortunatly I'm only able to steal an hour a day 3-4 times a week for practice.

Diaries are great things to track your progress, and it's nice when you read it after some time, just to see how things were going and how much you improved in the meantime smile.gif

Great thing to keep a diary. And remember - always write down the tempo where you left off.

I think it is great that you care enough to keep a Dairy (log of progress). You've got to keep track of your goals. I also think it's very cool that you trust everyone here to share it. Given that, I didn't read it because I feel that this should be personal to you. Only you can hold you accountable for you.

I just think myself (and others) would probably like to see you post your progress in playing and posting a recording (if possible). This would take less time then writing your text post (file) and be more productive to your end result (goal!). We could also give you better comments. What everyone reads and then hears is really different. This is the best way that everyone here can help you. We listen to progress, not read about it because then its just words. There is no feeling (doesn’t mean anything and music is about what you hear and feel). Please don’t take this negative. What ever your progress is, you should be very proud of yourself!

Congrats my friend on your progress and I wish you the best.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Hi everybody thanks for the positive feedback.

UncleSkillet - you are absolutly right, I should post some tunes. I havent recorded anything in a while, so it might be fun record something now and post it with an older recording. I also thought it might be encouraging to other members to see what lessons and at what speeds other people are working on.

That's an excellent initiative!
Keeping a diary will do wonders, keep it up!
