I made a video to help you understand what is important for YOU - in order to reach you goals.

Everyone is comprised of a unique combination of weaknesses and strengths - and we all have our musical preferences. Students often don't realise that if you are sitting with a guitar in your hands, it means you have a unique musical identity - which must be nurtured and managed tenderly.

By focusing on the things you love doing and playing, you are giving yourself a huge advantage over other guitarists practicing things just because "someone told them to".

If you follow my advice in this video, it can mean the difference between achieving your goals or not. Not only that, but it can help you speed up the learning process tremendously.

Hey Kris ,

thank You for this GOOD VID !

And thanks to this Big Catfish (WELS in german - i love them) who gave you the right impulse for making this Vid .

I hope he is still alive and swimming around there - never kill a real friend - !

I agree with your Input and Message , Yes !

Imagination is helpful on get into oneself but Inspiration is a good way to recognize and let Intuition grow

now just lets work on it and do it , to Be Your Self :-)

Very inspiring and helpful video! Just what I needed to hear... I am sure everyone can relate to it, regardless of being guitar player or not. It can be applied to any situation and aspiration in life. You should think about doing a TED talk! laugh.gif
Thanks wink.gif

Thanks a lot for your great comments. This one was extremely difficult for me to do, it actually took me several days - I had to do a lot of thinking...
