What is a complete guitar player? There are a lot of different aspects to being a well-rounded musician. People debate this subject all the time. Is it all about how well you can play technical passages, or how well you understand theory or how many cool sounds you can wrangle out of your guitar? The correct answer is “all of the above”!
In this episode, I’ll get into 15 different components that go into making a complete guitar player. I’m sure there are MORE than 15, but this list is a good starting point. If you have a good understanding about what makes a guitar player “professional”, you can help your guitar students make a lot more progress on the instrument and do a lot better with your teaching business, too.
