This video from Music Geniuses Inc. tells you 1 Simple Mind Trick to help you to practice your instrument more right away!  This mind trick leverages the old saying “out of sight, out of mind” and helps you to use that understanding to your advantage.  If you simply keep your instrument out where you can see it every day (instead of putting it away in some closet somewhere) you will instantly multiply your chances of sitting down to practice it!  I don’t know why it works.  We’re just lazy creatures by nature I guess!  All I know is if you simply set your instrument out after you finish practicing instead of putting it back in its case, you will play it far more often…guaranteed!

How to play with rhythm, even if you don’t think you have any!  Hey who knows, maybe you’ll finally be able to get a date to go to the dance with too.  This short video teaches you a funny little trick that will help you to naturally develop your sense of rhythm.  Now you’ll finally be able to dance like John Travolta like you’ve always wanted…or Justin Bieber…or Richard Simmons if you’re into that sort of thing…

Did you know that your sense of rhythm is built in at a very young age?  When I say very young, I mean the FIRST YEAR of life young.  When you were down on the carpet at home crawling around eating 3-week-old macaroni that you found hiding all around–at the same time you were training your brain to be wired to have a sense of rhythm!  People that skip straight to walking tend to have more trouble with rhythm and coordination.  This isn’t always the case, but any times it’s very true.  The good news is, this problem can be remedied today!  All you have to do is get down on the floor and crawl around.  Spend some time every day for a few days and see if it doesn’t help you out immensely!

If you want to learn the ultimate “guitar secret” here it is…In this FREE guitar lesson you will learn what it really takes to master any guitar lick, or any other lick on any other instrument as a matter of fact.

The secret is found in human anatomy actually.  You have been blessed by God with an amazing gift called “Muscle Memory.”  Muscle Memory can be clearly seen in action if you go to a farm on chicken butchering day.  When a chicken’s head is cut off from its body, the silly little thing jumps up and runs around the yard for a few minutes!  You see, the legs don’t NEED the brain to remember how to run…they REMEMBER for themselves.

Your fingers work the same way.  They literally REMEMBER whatever you program them to remember!  The secret to leveraging this for your “guitar playing” is to play SLOWLY ENOUGH so that you don’t make any little mistakes.  Your fingers remember mistakes if that is  what you spend all your time teaching them!  Practice slow and you will DOMINATE any passage of music you happen upon.

Blessings on you in your guitar playing!
