    Question Structure

    Hey, I've been playing on again and off again for a few years, but never seriously til the last couple months. When I "practice", I feel like I'm wasting alot of time because I don't really have a good structure to it. Is there any suggestions on how I can become more diciplined in practice. Also how can I incorporate theory into my practice session.

    Hi again

    That's okay. I couldn't be much help if you played drums or the piccolo. I'm sort of in the same boat as you with playing the guitar. Do you have teacher? Because a teacher can help you to set up structure. A metronome is a great way to help with being diciplined during practice. Know what you what to practice that for that or week even if your not playing your guitar. Write it down if you have to. You could do theory one day, scales another, eartraining yet another.

    P.S. I hope I was of some help.

    Lessons

    See I don't know whats reasonable as far as lessons go. Around where I'm at they run about 65.00 a month for four 30 minute lessons. Is that a good price?

    That price sounds pretty good to me. Around here (NYC) teachers are about $30 for 45mins

    Wow only 65 bucks per month. Teacher's run around $20 per half hour where I live. It's from $80-100 per month. March is my last month for lessons for a while. If you can't afford a teacher don't worry. You've joined ibreathemusic and got the internet. What was I thinking!?!

    Oh, while I'm thinking it check out the articles section here if you haven't. Great reading on theory and structure. Go to articles, insights, and Do Not Disturb by Eric Vandenberg (EricV). Wonderful article that should help. Sorry I didn't mention that last time.

    Good Luck!!!
