I’m starting this blog for an overlooked group of guitarists, at least as far as instruction goes. I’m talking about older adults, generally 30’s on up to 60’s maybe a bit more. The reason I’m focusing on this age range is because of their main challenge, which is mostly not addressed by others. That challenge is lack of time. Most teachers assume an endless amount of time is available to practice scale exercises, learn riffs and songs, etc. However, by the time most people reach their 30’s they have careers, spouses, & kids. What they don’t have is lots of spare time to practice. Over the past 30+ years of teaching guitar to all ages, I have had some of my greatest challenges (and rewards) helping my adult students progress and stay motivated when they seem to have almost no spare time to practice. Hopefully, I can use this blog to pass along some hints that my students and I have discovered along the way. It’s not just about time management; theory, dexterity, soloing and jamming etc. will all be covered. Right now, I plan to post every 2 weeks (weekly if I get it together). My first entry will be “Practicing with No Time”. which I should have ready in, you guessed it, 1 or 2 weeks.
