    Hi Liana, I love Alan's practice method. Don't think I'll be playing in terminals too soon though. :-) I also have a busy schedule, work 9 hours most days and usually 6 days a week. I try and practice a little every night before I go to bed. One thing I've heard is it is better to squeeze in a little practice every day than to have one day a week of marathon practice. Even if it's just 15 minutes or so. I try and do more when time allows.

      You work a lot! Yes, me too and it's difficult to squeeze practice in and establish it as a regular habit. And then those times when I find the time, I"m not sure what to practice sometimes. I think I need to organize a little routine. I think your idea of practicing before bed might work out best for me the way my work schedule is too!

    I agree Thayes! Nice singing too! I also wanted to ask the group- How do you incorporate practicing guitar playing into your daily life? I would like to get better and I know that practice is the only way!

      Liana: One way to improve is to learn to hear the chords rather than reading them on the cheat sheets. I've developed my ear by playing along with the radio to songs I've never played before. You have to find the key and feel the song chord pattern before the song is over. Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's really hard but that will improve your ear. And it's a fun challenge. Also, when learning a new song . . . alternate between playing along with a recorded version and playing it on your own. Eventually you'll "know" the chords automatically. I'll visualize the chords for a song and then pick up my guitar to see how close I was.

      Steve...thank you for the thoughtful suggestions. I like the idea of knowing songs so as not to have to look at cheat sheets or a computer which is mighty cumbersome. And playing along with recorded songs.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
