The Drill Sergeant And The Cheerleader

In this week's episode of Guitar Insider, I'm outside in my backyard sharing what I think is one of the most crucial balancing acts when it comes to learning guitar, sticking with it and eventually getting really good. This has to do with the two perspectives we all have -- and today we'll personify them as the cheerleader (encouraging) and the drill sergeant (critical). Both of these voices are equally important, but if you're mainly playing guitar at home there's a good chance you may need to actively create some space for your cheerleader voice. Balancing these two perspectives really is the key to getting better, to keep having fun with it and to eventually get really good! And I believe the failure to balance them is the number 1 reason that people quit playing guitar.
