  • How I TAC–Or, How I learned to stop worrying and love the routine

    Posted by AlexanderJW42 on April 16, 2021 at 8:59 am

    1.) How many days per week do you play?

    My goal is to play every single day of the week; however, sometimes I can only get it done five days.

    2.) What time of day do you play?

    I prefer to play early in the morning just after breakfast and first thing after work in the evening. If I can practice early in the morning, then I know I’ve done my commitment for the day and playing in the evening is an enjoyable way to relax and wind down at the end of the day.

    3.) Where do you play?

    I play in my home office space. It’s quiet, and I won’t bother anyone.

    4.) What was your guitar life like before having a guitar routine & how has implementing a consistent guitar routine helped you? (if possible name 3 ways).

    One of my greatest obstacles has been the tyranny of choice. There is so much I could/should/would like to work on that it has always been hard for me to choose something and stick to it. Now, though, I have learned to stop worrying about EVERYTHING and just focus on SOMETHING.

    TAC has taken away my need to choose something for each day. It’s just there, and it has been structured to help work on different skills; something which I might not have committed to otherwise. I still practice things other than what I do on TAC, but TAC gives me the structure and guided instruction that I need.

    The skills courses have given me insights into various aspects of playing, and they have also given me confidence that I can learn and progress in areas I had previously abandoned all hope for.

    Most of all, TAC has taught me to stop worrying about mastery and focus on gradual progress.

    5. Bonus Question: What is one non-guitar item that is a must have in your guitar routine?

    If it’s early in the morning, then it’s my cup of coffee, but not in the evening (I still need to sleep).
