  • How I TAC – 4/11/2021

    How many days per week do you play?

    I try to practice at least 10 minutes a day, 7 days a week. That’s my goal, but I don’t beat myself up if I miss a day or two. Occasionally something comes up.

    What time do you play?

    Between 7:30 and 8:30pm. This is the best time because my daughter and the dog have hit the bed for the night. I’ve only been a TAC member since February, but it has worked out great so far.

    Where do you play?

    I’ve toyed with different in the house, but found it works out best if my guitar is easily accessible, so I keep a chair in the corner of the dining room with the stand right next to it. I used to keep it in my office/den, but it seems when it was out of sight, it was out of mind.

    What was your guitar life before having a guitar routing & how was implementing a consistent guitar routine helped you?

    I had a difficult time trying to find exercises that helped me improve my technical abilities. Mostly I would just try to find a song that I liked and found a tutorial that would teach me the song. Sometimes it was too difficult so I’d bail on it. The daily TAC exercises are great at helping me focus on things that will improve my playing.

    I didn’t used to have a specific time to practice. I would keep my guitar out in the stand and may pick it up 3 times a week to try to learn a song I’ve hear od that had been stuck in my head. Just giving myself a goal of 10 minutes daily translates into more time spent a week playing the guitar.

    The TAC program also offers focussed courses on different skills, not just the daily exercises. Other website I’ve tried in the past had courses, but there were so many, it was hard to really zone in and focus on a specific area. There may have been 6 bluegrass instructors all having their own courses and ways of teaching. The courses with TAC are much more intuitive for me and I love having the support groups and check-ins. That is something I never found with other sites.

    What is the one non-guitar item that is a must have in your guitar routine?

    Always a beverage: water soda, or beer, depending on how the day went.
