Art,
I recently read an article, not sure where, about the five minute practice. From what I got out of it was short, focused practices in between regular practices can be beneficial. So in the morning if I have a few extra minutes before I have to leave for work, I pick up my guitar and run through a couple scales or a new song I'm learning. Then off to work.

thats a terrific idea, Gary. thanks. as a side benefit perhaps i'll regrow the braincells killed off by the tv

Art....for me, playing scales, strum patterns, etc. is great during the news....set time, set duration..kills the commercials (smile). Not the time for new stuff...but works for refining skills.

hi all,
i started playing fingerstyle about 2 years ago after a 20+ year hiatus. i'm totally enjoying it except that my work schedue causes erratic practise times. any suggestions on making my time more productive?

It's that easy and that hard.

Try barre chords, first finger just lies across all strings. Works for me.

Well, the moment has finally arrived. I must master the F and B Flat chords. No more excuses....

Any advice on the first finger would be met with gratitude!

You "might" have an Alvarez stuck in a cornor???? LOL. What a terrible position to be in LOL. I honestly envy you, I have to suffer with only 7 guitars. If I ever win the lottery that will change.

A quick hello and welcome to David Susman. Glad you are here, David. Btw, David has started his own group for Alvarez Owners. I think I have an Alvarez stuck in the corner around here somewhere. Might see you there,

Mark Metzler and Michael Renner have joined the ranks. Welcome to both of you! Don has been promoted to coffee steward so we are in good shape...just don't drink out of that Martin cup...Martin owner's can be peculiar. (Just kidding)

Steve, you what you describe is exactly where I am. LOL
