Been Distracted:If you have followed Guitar Musings in the past, you have probably stopped reading the blog because there hasn’t been a post in months. This has been for a number of reasons; some personal and others professional. Anyway, I’m trying to get myself back on track; with my playing and my writing.
Surround Yourself:I have found that, even though I play for many hours, I don’t practice. I’m just noodling on the guitar but not learning or polishing my craft. Some of that has to do with me being a bit lazy/uninspired and not knowing what to do. That is why I signed up for lessons with a local teacher and am completely excited for my first lesson. I have heard great entrepreneurs say that if you want to keep the energy of your new venture going, surround yourself with other entrepreneurs. Doing this will keep the energy up and you will be more likely to succeed. I’m doing the same by surrounding myself with other guitar players. Just the thought of playing on a regular basis has gotten my creative juices flowing. I can’t wait.
Are you surrounding yourself with other players to keep you going? Reading this blog or going to a guitar related forum isn’t the same. We need to have the contact of other musicians. Whether it’s a lesson, jamming with friends or just going to a concert, try feeding your guitar soul a bit and the music will begin to flow.
