How to Set Goals on the Guitar

Lesson ID: TB180

Do you think you should be better than this by now?

I know how you feel. Several years ago, I slipped into a period where I played frequently but didn’t really advance my skills. That very thought certainly went through my mind:

I should be better than this by now.

At some point, I got tired of not getting better and started setting goals for my guitar playing. This wasn’t a formal process at first, but for the last couple of years running, I’ve been using traditional goal setting techniques and frameworks and it’s really helping.

In this video, I’ll share my approach to setting goals on the guitar.

That’s the only way you’re going to get any real results.

You’ll learn:

  • What SMART goals are
  • An example of a solid guitar goal 🙂
  • How to get your hands on a copy of Fingerstyle Blues Roots

When you are ready, there are two ways I can help you:
