GuitarConrol.com instructor Jon MacLennan gives some advice on practicing guitar in this video lesson. Jon talks about never practicing anything that you would not perform live. He feels that it is far better to play music than to practice exercises. He uses the example of if you was wanting to work on the technique of hammer-on and pull-off’s it would be more beneficial in the long run to practice some riffs, licks or songs that use those techniques that you play when you perform live than to simple practice some exercise that uses the techniques. It is always better to refine music than to practice monotonous lame sounding exercises that no matter how good you get at them, they don’t sound cool.
