If you play Classical Guitar: Try raising the footstand a click so your wrist can remain straight. Make sure your arm isn't on anything (like the arm of a chair). Barre Chords are essential. You can ignore the rest of this post. If You Play on a Steel String Acoustic or Electric: Assuming you play Rock, Blues, Metal or even Jazz (I am open to be ...

What I do is use muffler pads on my drums. They reduce the volume a lot but dont effect the feel of the drums much, although the sound is pretty different. I also have a practice pad. The major downside to that is that it you can't play it with your feet! So it can be good for doing basic rudiments but really even for those you want to get the feet ...

Always keep in mind the goal is to be able to more effectively write, improvise, and perform music. There's no street cred or punk rock points for the way you practice at home if it doesn't lead to a better performance. Both methods you outline are obviously valuable. The main benefit in slowing the music down, however, is not a matter of making it easier. ...

The reason I feel this is so is because it progresses you very slowly, there's lots of ...

If I were you I would buy many different books on Music Theory for guitar and consider maybe even taking lessons for a few weeks or months (however long it takes). It doesn't take long to learn the basics and the basics alone will really spark your creativity and curiosity once you understand them. Books on harmony, scales, and even some chord books that ...

You don't have to learn Music Theory formally to know how it works just like you learn to speak somewhat fluently before ever going to school to learn English. Just because you learned how to speak basic English without any schooling doesn't mean that you aren't still using the alphabet. Its the same with Music Theory. Humans didn't invent scales, modes, and ...

Additionally to what Cornelius said (I can't simply add comments here yet), what you have here is neither a typical chromatic or diatonic (blues) harmonica. Standard diatonics typically have only 10-16 holes across. A blues harmonica is mostly laid out to repeatedly create a single major chord on the blow notes, I-III-V-VIII, do mi so do, however the upper ...
