Let’s Talk About Guitar Practice

Let’s Talk About Guitar Practice

I had with a guitar student recently who was struggling with what to do next and they asked me what I would do, how I practice… so that’s one thing.

The Bo Diddley Beat is a rhythm that uses a combination of strums and mutes in a particular accent. If you all you learn from this lesson is to play this you have learned something extremely valuable.
