In the short term, I want to fix my practice routine. I think it's a bit inefficient and Ive become really unfocused lately.
Too much time playing things I can already play rolleyes.gif

Improve all around not just in one specific area. I'd love to pass a level four lesson by the end of the year.

I've thought of another 2018 goal, I want my hands' ability to equal my head knowledge.

I've a horrible way of seeing a musical concept or lesson and understanding it and having a quick noodle and thinking 'great I know that now' rather than thoroughly getting it into my hands.

Like Triads, double stops etc I kind of know them and can use them in some keys, in some areas of the fretboard but it's not a completely 2nd nature thing that I can just go through all the inversions on any set of strings without hesitation.

Even some beginner lessons here I will have discounted as it seems easy but I haven't played them flawlessly.

Getting this sort of precision will help make recording less of a chore (doing 1 take instead of having to do 32 takes to get something right)

That's a good goal! I want to work on grasping things better too in that way!

As for more specific goals, rather than GMC activity, I'd like to work on tapped arpeggios this year, a la Robbert Hanenberg.

I'd like to do some songwriting or just create something of my own. I haven't completed a whole song in years it seems.

That's a very wise post mate. I remember my improvisation teacher, when I was around 18 that said me: Ok, your hands go fast, but your mind doesn't. It's time to make your mind faster. So I had to slow down my hands. laugh.gif

Yes, I actually began yesterday. I have a couple new and old ideas that I’m starting with. I’m going to attempt to focus a some time each day. How do you go about writing a track?

Cool! Working on Ben's lesson?

Does Ben have a lesson with some sliding vibrato? I noticed that he had adopted the technique somewhat in some videos recently. I haven't been working on any lessons here lately. Mostly learning new songs to play in the band next summer like Sultans of Swing (lead parts) Dancing Days (Zep) Wild About You (Robben Ford) I Got All You Need (Bonamassa) A few Bonnie Raitt tunes and a Koko Taylor song called Come To Mama. The kind of music I am playing has changed quite a bit since I started playing with the OG's in Big Fungus. tongue.gif It's fun though because we are playing a lot of blues type songs that allow me to step out and improvise and do my own thing quite a bit during solos and even in some of the arrangements of the songs we do.

Hi,

Guitar goals for 2018?

Generally:

Compose some stuff and record it!
Learn to relax more when I play
Increase my fretboard knowledge

Specifically;

My main goal is to focus on building an aural mental map of the fretboard. I've spent too long seeing the dots without having a clear aural map of what they 'mean' musically in the context of a chord or progression. Don't get me wrong I know the theoretical difference for example between a maj 3rd and a min 7th and know them by ear when I hear them. The problem is that I've never spent enough time linking this to the dots I see mentally on a fretboard.

My wife thinks I'm a bit crazy (heck she knows I am!) but I can be found daily at the moment looking wistfully into the air and singing intervals as I mentally work through the relevant positions in my mind. Hopefully some of this will stick!

It's time I started letting my mind create the music rather than my fingers.

Si
