How To Trick Yourself Into Practicing

Yeah, you want to learn how to play guitar, but that doesn't mean that's it's going to be easy. 

  • Depending on what motivational book you may be reading, it takes an adult anywhere from 21 to 30 days to establish a new habit. It takes most kids 60 to 90 days to establish a new routine.

So, if learning how to play the guitar really is something that you want to do, then you're going to have to get creative. In fact, you may have to trick yourself into practicing every day - at least until you've created a good steady routine.

Trick #1: Leave Your Guitar Out

To keep it safe, you may have to go out and buy a good guitar stand, but putting your guitar away after every use could be hurting your practice routine.

  • You've probably heard the saying, "Our of sight, out of mind", well putting your guitar away after every practice is putting it out of sight, which adds just one more step to your routine.

After you've been playing for a while and have fallen in love with your instrument, you won't need any gimmicks or tricks to force yourself to practice - you'll actually want to play every day - but in the beginning, you're gonna need all the help and motivation you can get.

Trick #2: Attend An Open Mic Night

Even if you're months or years away from playing at an open mic event, you'll keep yourself motivated on your own instrument by watching other musicians performing -- and it's a lot of fun!

Trick #3: Practice During TV Commercials

You probably watch too much TV as it is, but why waste time watching the commercials when you can be getting in some quality practice time? If you watch two or more hours of television every day, then that's a good 20 minutes of commercial time that can be used to improve your guitar chops.
