Special thanks to Josh at Guitar Lifestyle for finding this video!
Josh posted this Steve Vai video from Guitar Center Sessions titled: “How to Be Successful” yesterday. I have watched it 3-4 times now and each time I hear a new golden nugget of advice that I did not hear before.
The level of achievement that we have at anything is a reflection of how well we were able to focus on it… The only thing that’s holding you back is the way you’re thinking… Playing the guitar is my “juice”. -Steve Vai
I enjoyed this so much that I decided to start my daily practice sessions by watching this video. It’s the perfect 5 minute introduction to help me prepare mentally and focus on my practice goals.
The video is a lesson about guitars as well as a lesson about life. If we can find it within ourselves to adopt this way of thinking, we will all be better guitarists…and people.
Thanks Steve and thanks Josh!
