Slow It Down

IMG_0277

I had my first guitar lesson in 35 years last week. At 81, I have decided to try to really learn how to play guitar. My teacher almost immediately reminded me that a fundamental rule of practice, regardless of what you are practicing, is to slow down and get it right. Hence, this week’s verse.

Slow It Down

Slow it down when practicing
The best advice by far;
When you’re swinging a golf club
Or strumming a old guitar.

Leon S White, PhD

You might consider taking these words with you the next time you head for a practice facility. Reading them once more before you start practicing will make a difference. Guaranteed!
