Topic: Does learning get easier (and faster) as you progress
I started learning the guitar almost 11 months ago..(I'm 33) I think I have progressed fairly well. The first 4 months for me were spent just learning a wide variety of chords and progressions, a few scales, and several strumming patterns to practice the chords and progressions with. After that I allowed myself to start on songs. I made sure to work on multiple songs with diffrent rythyms and patterns as to not fall in the habbit of alway playing the same ones. At 6 months I started working on some tecniques trying to add style to the songs that I had learned (hammer ons, pull offs, walking bass lines, palm muting, chord variations, learning barr and power chords, etc..) That's were I'm at know. Playing a good variety of songs and still trying to perfect them. My question is once you get the fundamentals down does your learning become faster or do you pretty much progress at the same rate? I realize everyone is diffrent so I'm just looking for your experiences. I practice constantly (atleast 4-5 hrs a day) and don't plan on changing that habbit. What can I expect?
Man to turn back the clock to when I was 12 and quit guitar after 3 lessons....
