Stage Two Guitar Practice – Metronome & Pressure Points

Now I’ll show you how to locate your “Pressure Point”. This is crucial for improving as fast as possible on guitar


Due to the work you’ve already done in Stage One you can be sure that you’ve already successfully programmed what you’re trying to learn securely in your mind.

In stage two we introduce the use of a metronome for 1 very important reason… to find your “Pressure Point”.

Start at a slow tempo and gradually increase the click speed of the metronome until you find that you just about do the exercise but it’s kind of on the verge of falling apart. This is your “pressure point”.

Record the name of the exercise in your practice note pad and the tempo of your pressure point.

From Now On You’ll Spend All Your Practice Time In And Around This Pressure Point!

Reduce the click speed by 15BPM and build back up to your PP (pressure point). Then try to push past it by 2 – 6BPM before coming back down again. Keep repeating this process over and over.
