Guitar Thinking

The best guitar players can be described as Guitar Thinkers. Guitar "thinking" is being thoughtful with note selection, chord progressions, and sometimes playing less rather than more, focusing on the "right" note, or the "interesting" note or chord.

What exactly does it take to become a Guitar Thinker? Consistent learning and practicing is the key. The goal of GuitarThinker is to help you consistently study and explore, and to build the mental models necessary to play thoughtfully.
