play new stuff,

I am only 16 years, and i am in a rock band that also plays in night clubs. Anyway i am quite good on the guitar. I find the most effective practise being hard/difficult licks. If i play easy chord progressions or just simple things i don't get anywhere except getting stronger fingers! What i do is find something in a magazine that you are very familure with and try and play that. The more familure you are with it the better the practice it will be! If you can't find any songs then just stick to some reasonbly difficult scales - to play fast that is. If you try and play them fast then you really start to pick up your speed and co-ordination between strings which i think is the best practise you can get! also get into the habit of trying to have a bit of a jam session with your band, because i know when i muck around and play solo's and stuff, i really start to get a feal for what i'm playing! Therefore your enjoying your guitar and becomming better at improvisation and overall playing. Sometimes you have to play things that are not good sounding tunes but quite difficult to play. Playing difficult tunes is far more effective than repetion! That's what works for me, give it a try, i think you will start to notice a difference.

I hope i have helped you, i'm sorry if i haven't and just wasted your time.

anyway good luck

FROM CHRIS
