Set Your Intention for August!

Welcome to August’s “set your intention” event. My hope is that you (and everyone else!) will post a comment below stating their guitar intention for the month of August. And for doing so, you could be one of two members to win a free year of TAC valued at $197! I’ll explain below, but first…


The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine

Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!

Because leaving a comment with your intentions for the month will instill a very powerful psychological phenomenon called “commitment and consistency” which is the desire to be consistent with what we’ve said or done. You can use this powerful mind trick to make you a better guitar player. Let me show you how…

Right here, right now, I want you to close your eyes and envision exactly what would make you high five yourself on August 1st in respect to your guitar playing. This is a game called “act as if”.

So act as if it’s September 1st and you’re REALLY happy with yourself.

What did you accomplish that is making you so happy with yourself? Did you learn a song? Finally get over your ambiguous fear of failure and submit a video performance? Did you complete the entire August Practice Plan even though you’ve fallen short the last couple months? Did you play your first open mic? Did you play a full song for somebody? What did it feel like? Was it awesome?

Keep in mind, it doesn’t matter how big or small your intention is for the month. If you have a crazy month of traveling, aim super low. As a matter of fact, if you’ve had a tough time being consistent with your guitar, just aim low. Let’s go for an easy win this month.


Leave a comment as though it’s September 1st and you’ve ALREADY completed your desired actions. Also, make sure it’s very specific and measurable (not opinion based). And make sure it’s attainable and relevant to your overall goals.

Once you submit your comment, you’ll get the August Intention badge (10 points). Now all you have to do is get 15 more points to get the August Action badge which will automatically enter you into the drawing for a free year of TAC worth $197.

Here are some example comments:

Example 1: I got the wizard badge! This feels great because I’ve been trying for the last two months have have always fell short!

Example 2: August was super busy so my goal was to learn a “starter” song and submit the performance. I’m happy to say that not only did I successfully do this, but it only took me a few days of focus!

Example 3: I played “descending chords” for my wife! She’s heard me talking about learning guitar but I’ve never been brave enough to play for her. Now she’s super supportive and she’s driving me to learn more songs!

Example 4: I submitted a performance for a Wednesday solo badge. It wasn’t pretty, but now I can say that I’ve submitted a performance and now it doesn’t seem like a big deal!


  1. Leave a comment with your August intentions
  2. Complete any one thing on TAC (practice plan or song lesson or any performance submission)
  3. Make sure your profile photo is updated with your photo (prerequisite for getting the Action badge)
  4. That’s it! You’re automatically entered to win a free year of TAC!

Frequently Asked Questions (Don’t see your question? Ask it in the comments below!)

Q. Does my intention comment need to be something I do on TAC?
A. Nope!

Q. Do I only get the badge if I complete my intention successfully?
A. Nope! It doesn’t matter to me if you are successful or not. The point is to set clear goals and be intentional about our learning.

Q. Why do I need to have a profile photo? I’m shy!
A. If we were all hanging out at a BBQ jam session and half the people had bags over their heads, it would be really hard to connect with them as humans. The real power of TAC is human connection. Show us your face!

Q. So you’re saying that the new monthly “Action badge” is what automatically enters me into the monthly drawing for a free year of TAC and in order to get the Action badge I need to 1. leave a comment below 2. do ANY single thing on TAC and 3. have a profile photo?
A. You’re a quick learner! Yes, it’s as easy as that:)

    I used to be very active on TAC but ran out of free time once my kids got out of school. Before August is over, I intend to get back into the swing of things with twenty minutes of Tony Every day so that I can get ready and prepare to make more time for my guitar again in September. This feels great because I’ve been trying hard to pick up my guitar every day for the last two months have have almost always fell short!

    This isactually late August. Been a member for a while but want to get serious now. The Blues part of the Practice Plan caught my eye. But completing and posting a song will probably be the easiest at this point, though I will try to get through the practice plan.

    I can’t believe I just turned 64! I am still a strummer, and probably will stay that way, but I am learning to add a bit to it. F chord, you used to be my friend, now I am coming for you. I will master you again, I just need to get that arch back to the fingers. Damn you hand injury! I will beat you yet! I am getting the chords and rhythm down to “Take me to Texas” just as the month of August is coming to a close.

    I learned two TAC song lessons this month, and took a shot at learning “Liberty” as performed by David Grier (as best as I could). Also earned my Wizard badge for August. Enjoyed a long weekend on Galveston bay kayak fishing with my lovely wife, and spent some quality time at the gun range. Most importantly, I spent a little time thinking about how Blessed I am. Pretty humbling… 🙂

    It’s 9/1/16. Thanks to guitar Jedi Master Tony I am starting to learn. I’m a bit slow, but determined to keep going. Tony has helped also by returning my e-mail questions. That, for me… is inspiring. Finally, I haven’t been sick lately and my physical therapy is beginning to help. It get’s hard to sit without pain but I’m improving. Anyway if I ever get a smartphone and learn how to use it and send a photo, maybe I’ll have a chance to win. Until then…good luck to everybody. — (padowan) Pete 😉

      Hey Janet,

      I’m Jeff, and I just wanted to say, great job on learning the new song. Btw, I love your pic of the motorcycles, that gets me to wanting another harley again too. There’s nothing like that rumbling sound of a harley, it gets in your blood. Seriously, I feel that way about my guitars too. There’s something like the sound of an acoustic guitar sound too, it can ease the heart and mind of a stressful situation. Anyway, awesome job!!!

      Hey Roeland,

      Great job on getting a new house. My wife and I are in the process of getting a new house as well. Matter of fact, we close on it in about 11 days from now. So, even with with all of the caos, I am trying to keep up with my guitar practice. I’m to the point now, where I feel as though I am drawn to it each morning. It’s really one of the first things I think about, so I hope I don’t lose that desire. It’s a really great feeling to have, in my humble opinion that is.

      Again, awesome job Roeland and I pray it goes well on your new house and congrats on buying your first home too.

    I feel like I have known a lot of these folks for years, in other words, comfortable and welcomed. That’s a great feeling. Wow, there are so many things that are helping me to become a better player, and having fun and enjoying it along the way really helps too. I may not be getting things exactly perfect, but I am learning a lot of new things and some things I knew about. Through the years I have learned things from different people that I have met along this journey of life, you know, little tips and tricks (i.e. easier ways to do chords differently, etc.). I really like how Tony has designed this website, it’s nicely organised, and I like that. It’s easier to learn when things are in order, so thanks Tony. Seriously, I wake up each day, looking forward to practicing and playing my guitar, it’s not something I feel like I must do, but rather, it’s something that I have a deep, heartfelt desire to do. I look forward to getting to know each of you better as we go along in this musical journey together. I honestly believe that music is a part of our soul, and that it is a very powerful thing, a peace maker, therapy to relieve stress from the things in life, and a wonderful sound to hear, and our life’s blood. I am certainly thankful to becoming a better player and learning how to make my guitars an extension of myself, and thus becoming a better musical artist, the best that I can be. That’s something different for each of us, and also something that’s achievable too.

    I am happy to say I attempted each lesson, the important thing I learned is take my time and have fun.

    Man August went by fast! It was just last month I learned and performed my first song and Wednesday solo. It wasn’t nearly as scary this month. I am truly thankful for TAC for getting me jump-started on the Guitar. It feels great!!!!!!

    I’ve made great progress in August to play with more dynamics, even riddum, and learned how to play staccato more with palm muting or however you do that.

    I’m finally seeing progress with my right hand in terms of my picking technique. Discipline growing and unlearning some bad habits of sloppy right hand technique

    Finally September !st, 2016, Tomorrow is my birthday; 64 yrs old. I have learned the Beatles song, “WHEN I’M 64!” HOW APPROPRIATE, AND I’ve learned a new song and recorded it on Tony’s Acoustic Challenge, AND I recorded it without errors. I am so proud. The other members of TAC have been so supportive how could it have been different. I am proud to be a member of such a wonderful group of fellow musicians.

    August was the month I finally got over my fear of submitting a solo. I learned Angeline The Baker (have been obsessed with it ever since seeing Tony do a review for the first time) and got a little better about learning how to record a song.
