GUITAR PLAY! Motivation & Practice

The eBook

Guitar Play! Motivation & Practice                                                Available on Amazon 

When we’re young we “play” the guitar, as we get older we “practice.”
For many the most difficult part of practicing guitar is opening the case.


Guitar Play! will teach you how to celebrate small victories and turn practice into performance. You'll overcome the distraction of Gear Acquisition Syndrome (G.A.S.), put the "Which guitarist is the best?" debate to rest and discover why you really should learn some music theory.

There's a 10-step practice guide, advice on transcribing, the 4 biggest mistakes guitar students make and even some tips for improving your guitar tone. It's time to embrace your authentic voice on the instrument.

The motivation and practice concepts described in this book will have a profound affect on your musical journey and inspire you to keep opening your guitar case.

So let’s play!

Amazon Reviews (U.K. & U.S.)

"This book will help you tackle the meaningful and worthwhile, yet difficult challenge of defining your voice on the instrument. And if you’ve ever said “man, if I only had the time to practice more”, you’ll love his guidance on the most efficient way to practice so you improve as fast as possible. Bottom line, if you want to get better faster so you can have more joy when you play, this book is for you." 

M. Feinberg

"Rob Garland's love of the guitar flows through this easily digested book. Distilled from a long career as a composer, gigging musician and teacher, these pearls of wisdom are sure you get you on the right track as you navigate learning the guitar. Keep it close as it contains something for everybody. "

P.G. Moore 

"Enjoyable read with useful suggestions for focused practice. We’ve all felt frustrated in the progress of our playing and having an accomplished player share best practices along with the common things that sidetrack (i.e. G.A.S.) us is definitely helpful and motivating."
