How to use the Guitartraining material:

On a daily basis of 1 hour, you should practise scales and arpeggios and chromatic exercises as a warm-up.
Take a metronome, play along with the metronome. Increase speed every couple of days.
Then pick one standard, learn the chords etc, then try to improvise along with the backing track or practise the written solos.

The problem is that there is no "best way" of practising. The Guitartraining material is not a step by step course, but offers different approaches to your instrument.

1. the technical aspect:
- you have to do daily exercises to improve your left and right hand technique (such as chromatic exercises, scales and arpeggios). This is the basis of all your improvisations. This can be fun when you notice that your technique and your knowledge about scales and arpeggios is getting better through the months. You have to stay concentrated while you´re practising, set yourself a specific goal each time you practise, don´t let yourself get distracted, don´t just "noodle" along.

2. the harmonical aspect
- practise blues voicings - as given in the book - memorize them, use them as "patterns". You won´t forget them anymore, but you can always try to put in your own ideas later.
- deepen your knowledge about the underlying interval structure in each chord you are about to play (which fretted note is what interval in the chord). Therefore use the chord diagrams that I have provided in the book.
- omit root notes, play chords in a higher fretboard position (as shown in all of the chord exercises), practise the given voicing exercises for the tunes provided in the pdf file. Don´t think and analyze every note you are playing, use the voicings as "licks", learn them by heart. Everything will brighten up later.
- learn the progressions of the tunes by heart, so that you can memorize the chords

3. the melodic aspect
- play the blues scale (as it is fundamental for everything that came after..), practise the written blues improvisations, learn them by heart, use the ideas and included patterns for your own improvisations, they will will widen your own horizon, copy licks and melodies from the great masters, write down any small phrase that you come upon, make up your own collection of "licks"
- practise II-V-I progressions, again practise the patterns provided in the book.
- practise improvisations, try to write your improvisations down (advanced and time consuming…), learn them by heart, so you are always able to play over chord progressions without thinking which scale or arpeggio goes with what chord.
- repeat phrases in your improvisation, this will make a solo more understandable to the listener

4. the rhythmic aspect and articulation
- listen to the given audio examples and listen to the great masters like Kenny Burrell (very bluesy phrases) or Wes Montgomery (octaves and block chords), play behind the beat, play laid-back lines, when playing chords your guitar is like a four-voice horn section throwing in accents here and there but always with a melodic line in the top voice. (there are lots of examples in the book and even more in the available add-ons to the Guitatraining method. Just go to "" and find out more about the add-ons. I can truly recommend them to you.
- don´t pick every note, make use of slurs and hammer-ons etc…

It all depends on how much time you can afford…..
