Thanks to the IG Blog we came across this post by Dave Jacoby. It’s Chapter 2 in his series on how to not suck at guitar. The basic idea is to occasionally pick out a popular tune and try to figure out how to play that tune on the guitar. It’s easy to fall into a habit of only practicing technique and speed and forgetting about understanding the guitar. It’s certainly quicker to do a google search and pull up the tab for a favorite song. And there’s nothing wrong with that, but some of my favorite practice sessions have been either intentionally or semi-accidentally figuring out how to play a song. Dave suggested Happy Birthday, the IG Blog went with the 007 Theme and then recorded it. Try your own. I like the theme song idea. How about the Jeopardy theme?
