How you should practice playing guitar and bass guitar

How you should practice playing guitar and bass guitar

I want to tell you the best way to practice guitar. This is important because most people these days are learning by themselves and do not get feedback from a real-life teacher.cool

You do not need to practice 24/7

It is a myth to think that famous guitar players practice all the time 24/7. They are humans too and have their limits. Practicing for hours can actually lead to injuries and the result may be that you have to stop playing for a long time to heal. The difference is, that famous musicians practice smartly.

It has been said that the most important thing is to practice the right thing. This is because practice does not make perfect, it makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.  

Practice for Progress

You should have several relaxed practice sessions of fifteen to twenty minutes at the time. You cannot learn everything in a day. Think and plan for the long term and come back to practice on a daily basis.

Warm Up

Many adult players have hand problems because they do not spend time warming up. Make sure that you slowly ease into using a new guitar or starting to apply a new technique. If you don’t then you might overuse your body and the result maybe that you cannot play for a while.  

Tips for Healthy Guitar Practicing

Make sure you have a guitar that you are comfortable with to play.

Try to play as lightly as possible with your left hand and find the amount of pressure needed to just prevent the string from buzzing. Do a daily warmup to find that exact point where the string stops buzzing and you use minimum pressure?

Check the position of your hand. Make sure that your wrists are in natural positions and not over bent in any direction.

Have a routine with stretching for your entire body. We often get tense in our back and shoulders and this can harm not only our playing but also our posture.

Breathe deeply and be relaxed when playing. Sometimes I used to hold my breath in a difficult passage or when I was nervous. Take a couple of deep breaths before playing

Practice with Breaks. Take breaks after 15 minutes no matter whether you think that you need it or not. You will progress much faster doing this.

Use a warm up exercise that helps warm up all aspects of your playing. Play very slow and view how your body reacts. Keep your head high and don’t let it hand forward as it might otherwise cause shoulder issues.

Hold a positive image of yourself in your mind. Keep it as relaxed as possible.

Drink lots of water!

Learn to make music with your guitar. It’s not about being a hero with technical capabilities. In the end it’s about making music. Try to make the most beautiful music rather than being the best guitar player.

Keep on playing and practicing and enjoying what you are doing and you will be successful. It has been said that 90% of success is simply showing up. If you keep showing up, you will be successful.

Find more Inspiration

If you need more inspiration about guitar playing then I recommend you check out the following sites.

The internet is full of great information about learning songs, making music and improving your instrument playing. Often times it is hard to tell which resource you should follow. This can be quite a drain on the time available to practice and get better. I suggest that you are following some specific recommended and proven resources.

They are on social media and on Youtube and from there you can find the related websites if you need to. In places where there is a lot of social interaction you will find social proof that the resources available at that address are worth your while.

No Matter if you play acoustic guitar, electric guitar or bass guitar. All the above is highly recommended for your practice sessions. It also does not matter at all if you play rhythm guitar or lead guitar, blues guitar or classical guitar. Even if you are a shredder and are only interested in metal, keep practicing sensibly.

Simply Kitchen’s new Instant Read Thermometer

As a most important aspect of cooking is related to heating up of ingredients, temperature plays a significant role. While cooking we al tend to be anxious about the doneness of our food, especially when it comes to roasting, frying, grilling, etc. Some food ingredients tend to lose their property, texture, color, smell and taste due to change in the temperature. Some dishes like a pot roast, requires an exact temperature to cook at to produce the desired result. Other dishes like lean steaks and roasts require less time cooking which enables us to serve the dish at the ideal temperature. Therefore, a Simply Kitchen Instant Read Thermometer is an essential tool in the kitchen. A Food thermometer A thermometer is a piece of equipment that measures any minor or major changes in temperature of any substance. Temperature, to the scientist, is the average molecular kinetic energy of a substance. If a thermometer is calibrated to an identified temperature, subsequently it can be used precisely to determine the total temperature of the substance. There are numerous varieties of Food thermometers, they differ based on styles and level of technology. Every thermometer has their specific usage and limitations. Cooking thermometers and digital thermometers take the guesswork out of cooking. They measure the interior temperature of the cooked food and help to assure that the optimal temperature has been reached, destroying all the harmful bacteria along with cooking the food perfectly. An Instant read thermometer or barbecue thermometer is one of the most useful tools you can have if you like to cook! Characteristics of Food thermometer A food thermometer is a tool that measures the internal temperature of food while it’s cooking. A food thermometer has a metal probe on the top along with a sharp point which is inserted into the food. There are two types of food thermometers – dial thermometer and digital thermometers. A dial thermometer has a different in built mark of the temperatures whereas a digital thermometer only displays the temperature in the display box. A Dial thermometer is the traditional type whereas the digital thermometer is the modern and popular version used in the household today. Food thermometers are usually designed to have the probe in the food while cooking. The temperatures at which different pathogenic bacteria are eliminated vary depending on the type of dish you’re cooking. If the thermometer is not properly inserted in the proper location in the food, it may not give the correct reading or evaluation. However, it is very important to insert the thermometer in the right place and in the correct way for a given amount of time to get a desired result. In general, the food thermometer should be placed in the thickest part of the food. It is important to make sure that it is placed away from the fat and bone in the meat.   Uses of Food thermometers A kitchen thermometer with a range of temperatures can be used for various food types. The probe can be emerged into the dish before cooking, and let the cooking continue until the preferred interior temperature is achieved. Alternatively the food can be cooked for a definite time and taken away from the stove.
