Watch the Smart Practice For Guitar online guitar lesson by Jeff Scheetz from Smart Practice For Guitar
Thanks for picking up Smart Practice for Guitar! I am excited to share my Smart Practice System along with many of the practicing techniques that I have developed and tested over the years. I have not only used these on my own playing, but have also helped thousands of students get great results with these methods.
Let me explain how the system is laid out and give you some pointers on how to get the most out of it. The material is divided into several sections; the main ones are The System, Smart Practice Techniques, and Methods and Concepts.
“The System” section is the core of Smart Practice and you will start by setting up goals for your guitar playing. Then you will create what I call the “Skillbox Inventory Lists” and schedule your time into “Smart Zones.” When you sit down to work on your material use the “5 Smart Steps” to really drill down. There are Worksheets in these sections as well as in the master Workbook that play an important role in helping you craft your practice system. So make sure you take the time to fill out the Worksheets to get the most out of the System.
The next section is “Smart Practice Techniques” and here you will find a bunch of useful practicing techniques that will spice up your practice time. Just drilling on something over and over is not only boring, but science now tells us it doesn't work nearly as well as mixing things up! So here is where you can do some mixing. Some of these techniques might seem a little wacky, but have some fun with them and get creative!
In the “Methods and Concepts” section I go over practical tips to consider when you are practicing. Many of these will hopefully spark your thinking about how you have been practicing and what you can do to make it better.
Of course any system of practice only works when you apply it, and I certainly think it will benefit you the most if you do every single thing in the Smart Practice System! However, one cool thing about this system is that it is modular. If you just need to figure out your schedule, you can use that section. Or if you want to get some new ways to work on stuff, you can pull from the techniques section. There is no doubt in my mind that practicing more effectively and efficiently will help you take your guitar playing to the next level.

Now jump in and get started – make this the year you will really get better as a player. As George Eliot said “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
