The Four Stages for Learning Any New Skill on Guitar

Are you frustrated with your progress lately on guitar?

Then what I'm about to show you in this simple article that Aaron Miller of wrote and will blow your mind!

Ok like the subject says…

There are 4 stages to learning anything.

And these stages apply PERFECTLY to you and your guitar.

Here they are:

Stage One – Unconscious Incompetence – “You Don't Know What You Don't Know”

Ignorance is bliss applies here. You're looking at a guitar and you don't even know how it works. I'm guessing you're past this stage so let's move on…

Stage Two – Conscious Incompetence – “I suck!”

I'm guessing you're at this stage (and maybe you have been for a while).

This is the stage where most people give up because they judge themselves too harshly. Don't let your ego get in your way here. That's the bottom line.

More on this in a minute.

Stage Three – Conscious Competence – “I'm actually doing it!”

It's all downhill from here. Sure you still have to focus and work on the skill, but you can do it and it sounds good. Keep going because the next stage is right around the corner…

Stage Four – Unconscious Competence – “I can do this in my sleep.”

This is where the pros are at overall with their playing… Joe Bonamassa, Steve Vai, Larry Carlton etc.

BUT you can be here too with specific skills… much faster than you think! It just takes practice and not giving up on yourself.

Everyone MUST go through these stages. It doesn't matter who you are or how long you've been playing.

And this learning model applies to EVERY specific skill on guitar… not just guitar overall.

So let's say, you are Stage Two at barre chords…

Well, you know that you need them. So that's 1 stage you're out of already! Believe it or not, there are tons of guitar players that are still on stage one with barre chords!

So you're already a step ahead of them!

Now you just need to work stage 2 exercises until you're competent!
