Practising/Learning without a guitar
« on: June 28, 2017, 10:28:15 pm »
Does anyone have any ideas for practicing without actually having a guitar to play?

I have very limited playing time due to workload and travel and was thinking if anyone had any ideas like mental quizzes, notes etc.

Sounds like a bit of a silly question I know but when I do actually get to play i seem to be noodling and not actually doing anything.

Any ideas would be helpful.

A travel guitar and the theory books from the Justin store.
Less time spent noodling too.

PMT is great. It has games like 'name the 6 notes at the 9th fret. The 2nd fret. The nth fret' etc.

More importantly, stop noodling and write up and stick to a practice routine. https://www.justinguitar.com/en/PC-101-SetGoals.php

I find YouTube guitar lessons and backing tracks and convert them to mp3 files online. I then save them to my phone for listening during my commute and/or jam with them later. Not sure if this breaks any YT copyright rules as I can't seem to find what the "Standard YouTube License" actually is or means.
