Basic Practice Method

This is my practice routine in a nutshell.

1. Do Gigs

This means ANY performance/playing. A gig, a session, a recording, a broadcast, a snippet posted on Snapchat/Instagram/Facebook/YouTube/etc., jamming with your mates, an audition, playing for yourself, playing for an imaginary friend, your cat, whatever. The point is that you’re putting it out there, making it into blood and guts.

2. Learn Pieces

Learning things to play. Tunes, solos, ideas, licks and so on.

If you want, you can add the word “many” in-between each phrase :)
