Watch the Legato Exercise 3 online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Beginner Blues-Rock Soloing
Ritual is a large component of practice. Although I'm not always successful at this, I use my calendar on my iPhone and have an hour blocked out every day. During this hour, I try to turn off all forms of communication. The way the world is right now, that's very difficult to do! Think about it - my main metronome is on my phone. So of course, more often than not, a text will come in while I'm practicing. I've been striving to set up a steady practice for years! As we get older, we all know that life gets more complicated and we have more commitments. This makes my practice time all that much more valuable.
