The Critical Window for Guitar Improvement
Did you know the first 5-10 minutes of your playing session sets the upper limits on
what you’ll achieve in your entire playing session?
When you are short on playing time, this crucial 5-10 minute window is even more
But how do most guitarists start their practice sessions?
Guitarists do one of two things.
Most, just pick up their guitar and start playing songs.
Now hang on a second…that’s the reason you decided to play guitar in the first place
isn’t it? So what could possibly be wrong with that?
Well, the problem is that most songs are not designed to properly warm-up your hands.
A Hidden Reason for Slow Improvement on
Have you ever thought about the fact that songs do not use all fingers equally? Pick
any two songs and count how many times each finger is used. Do this, and you’ll find
that your fingers are used differently in every song.
This means that depending on the songs you play, one or more of your fingers may be
The BIG Problem
Over several practice sessions, this often leads to a big problem I frequently find
among guitarists---one or two fingers are much weaker than the rest.
This means songs that use your weak fingers will take way more time to learn and will
be much harder to play than they should be.
The other way that guitarists start a practice session, is by doing some sort of a
“warm-up”. What’s considered to be a warm-up varies widely from player to player.
Unfortunately, most guitarists do not warm-up correctly. They usually miss crucial
things, or do things in the wrong order. This means they are not warming up
effectively and ultimately end up wasting much of their valuable practice time.
The Mind…A Terrible Thing to Waste Especially for Guitar
The other neglected part of the warm-up is the mind.
When you pick up your guitar to play, are you instantly absorbed with 100% concentration?
Or, does it take a bit of playing to get your mind away from the problems of work or school?
And what about those days when you just can’t seem to get your mind on your playing?
When your mind is distracted and thinking of other things, do you really think you are in the best state for learning and improving your playing?
A proper warm-up will get your mind focused on guitar as quickly as possible, so you’ll learn faster.
And don’t worry, if your main guitar goal is to simply unwind and relax after a hard day, a proper warm-up will relax you even faster!
When you warm-up properly, you’ll:
Have better mental concentration and clarity.
Get into a relaxed state ready to learn and have massive fun.
Get more done every practice session. This means better results from every
Learn everything else on guitar faster.
Improve your overall playing.
Decrease the risk of injury.
Ultimately, when you warm-up properly, you’ll save more time than it takes, because you’ll be primed to fly through the rest of your
practice session with ease.
By now I’m sure you’ll be starting to see why the warm-up is the most important part of your practice sessions. It really sets you
up for the rest of your playing session.

Everyone Knows What a Warm-up is Supposed to Do, or Do They?
A warm-up allows your body and mind to perform at an optimal level and prevent injury.
Think for a moment about what is required when you play the guitar…
Think of all of the fine motor skills that are required…
There are 34 muscles that move the fingers and thumb---17 in the palm and 18 in the forearm. And that’s not counting the muscles in your upper arm, shoulders, back and neck!
A Recipe for Disaster
You would never think about going to the gym, grabbing the heaviest weight you could ever lift, and lifting with no warm-up, would you? No way!
You know that’s a recipe for disaster. When you don’t warm-up in the gym you run the risk of injury.
It’s the same on guitar. When you don’t warm-up properly on guitar, you also run the risk of injury.
