Beau Diakowicz: Creative neosoul guitar Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

Creative neosoul guitar, Vol. 2
10 popular Instagram improvisations that dive through extended harmony and technique.

This video course is made up of 10 new improvisations from Beau’s popular Instagram channel. Each one showcases contemporary guitar flair unlike any you’ve come across before. Beau’s chord voicings, rhythmic approach, use of legato, and economy of motion will challenge you to understand new ways of connecting the literal dots.

When you internalize the content of these improvisations, you’ll find yourself with more creative options that draw from the idioms of jazz, R&B, hiphop and soul.

As in Volume 1, 10 examples of Beau’s unique guitar style are transcribed for you to loop, play along with and absorb. At the end of each example, Beau slowly plays the improvisation again, note for note, pausing so you can fully reproduce every slide, shake and chord extension.

Tom Hess: Make Your Guitar Practice Fun Again And Become A Better Guitarist Faster

Make Your Guitar Practice Fun Again And Become A Better Guitarist Faster
Are you starting to become tired, bored or annoyed with practicing guitar? This is certainly not what any guitarists wants, and of course will cause you to make slow progress towards becoming a better player... here are the 2 main reasons why:

1. If you are bored with practice, you will avoid it. As a result, you will practice less and make progress very slowly.

2. If things get any worse, you might end up quitting guitar. Many players do this, because they become frustrated with not getting any results. You certainly don’t want to end up like this.
One of the best ways to make practicing guitar fun again is to keep track of your guitar playing progress on a consistent basis. This helps your guitar playing in the following important ways:

1. You become much more focused as you practice. To start tracking your progress, you’ll need to first create goals to work towards. This will help you get better at guitar much faster because it gives you something to compare your current level to. Get this free resource about improving your guitar speed to find out more on how this is done.

2. You begin competition against yourself to get better results. When you track your musical progress consistently, it becomes like a game to see how much results you can get every week. Think about playing a game, but never bothering to keep scoreů it wouldn’t be as exciting would it? With that in mind, this is precisely what most guitarists are doing by not tracking their progress.

3. You will feel massively motivated to improve at guitar by getting feedback on your playing every single week.
As you get more and more results from your practice, your motivation to continue will grow. This is what makes the process of measuring your progress so vital for becoming a better guitarist.

4. Your confidence for becoming a better guitarist will skyrocket. By having a positive attitude towards becoming a better player, you plant the seeds for your musical future.

These Are The Eight Easy Steps For Tracking Your Progress On Guitar:

Step 1: Go over your guitar playing goals and determine the specific skills you need to work on master (this is something a guitar teacher will help you with).

Step 2: Locate all the best exercises that will help you attain these skills as effectively as possible (you will need to determine HOW to practice these exercises as well). Remember, not all exercises come in the form of physical things you must play on guitar – you may also need to find exercises that help you better understand music theory, improvisation, fretboard memorization, etc.

Step 3: Achieve your largest goals in less time by first determining smaller, short-term goals that will help you along the way (until you finally get to where you want to be). Read this article about achieving your biggest musical goals to learn how to do this.
Step 4: Practice the exercises you decided to use from step two for a short period of time (one or two weeks).
Step 5: Next, see how much progress you have made towards achieving your goals from step three above. If you need to test skills that are technique related, employ a metronome. Otherwise, you will need to assess your progress using a much more specialized approach (discussed below).
Step 6: Create and update a chart that displays your progress, so that you know how much progress you’ve made over the past week. This is the “score-keeping method” that makes getting better at guitar like a game.
Step 7: Look at your progress, then tune your oncoming guitar practice schedule in response. When you do this, you guarantee that you will make progress every new week.
Step 8: Go through steps 4-7 again while focusing on each shorter goal you have, until you’ve finally achieved all of your larger goals.

If you want to make this process even smoother and easier, use a tool that will track everything for you with the most precise assessments for analyzing all aspects of your guitar playing. Read this page on making faster overall guitar playing progress to learn how it works.

When you frequently track your guitar playing progress, you’ll be shocked at how fast you begin transforming yourself into an awesome guitarist.
