As you probably know, I started The Aspiring Guitarist as an outlet for my obsession for getting better at guitar. Over the years I’ve expanded also to other topics, but how to practice guitar more efficiently is still my favorite topic.
For a long time I thought that I am the only weirdo who finds pleasure in studying this subject but fortunately that is not true. There are quite a few people who know much more about practicing much more. And Jonathan Harnum is definitely one of them.
Jonathan Harnum is the author of a fantastic book called The Practice of Practice that focuses on how do we get better on musical instrument.
