I'm looking for some suggestions/advice on my practice routine. When I was first starting out, I found it easier to manage my practice time, but after my first year, I'm finding it difficult to decide what exactly I want to focus on and for how long. I'm truly interested in learning as many different styles and whatnot, so it becomes a bit overwhelming at times when I sit down to schedule out my practice sessions for the week. I am currently interested in learning acoustic blues style, fingerpicking styles, folk, and some rock. my biggest issue right now is where to start. So if I pick the blues to focus on for awhile, where would be a good place to start?
This is my current routine as of now:
10-15 min- Warm up exercises (chromatic ex., alternate picking ex., etc)
10-15 min- Scales, chords, progressions
15-20 min- working on original songs, cover songs
I realize now that one of my biggest mistakes up to this point is not focusing enough on learning the fret board. I am going to start incorporating different exercises to help me in this area. If any of you have any suggestions or advice for me on this topic, I would greatly appreciate it. I've been playing for a year now, but still see myself as a beginner.
Thanks in advance.
