Making Use of What You Already Got

Let's be real—logging endless hours of practice can sometimes feel like a one-way ticket to monotony. But fear not, because there's a game-changing approach which can inject a serious dose of excitement into your playing: I call it "Making Use of What You Already Got."

Here's the lowdown: instead of tirelessly picking up new licks, why not squeeze every drop of potential from the ones you've already mastered? It's like opening a musical treasure chest right in your own repertoire.

So, imagine this: you've got this killer lick that you've been shredding. Instead of moving on to a brand-new one, let's spice things up with the original lick. Play around with it—adjust your picking dynamics, throw in some fresh rhythmic phrasing, experiment with playing it slower or faster. Voila! In the blink of an eye, that single lick transforms into a goldmine of ten new, mind-bending variations.

It's all about thinking outside the box and tapping into the untapped potential of what you already know. Trust me, this not only keeps your practice sessions from becoming a snooze-fest but also propels your guitar game to unforeseen heights.

So, the next time you feel the itch for something novel, resist the urge to hunt for a different lick—instead, let your creativity soar by unleashing the untapped brilliance within what you've already conquered.
