1. the best practice is on stage.. play live constantly 2.surround you with musicians better than you 3. don't learn generic music or you'll play like most others. 4. Study the best and you'll be great. 5. Do residential workshops they are great 6. Focus on the small techniques they are the most important. 7. be a musician not just a guitar player 8. tell a story when you play.

11 ALWAYS treat your audience with respect. Unless you are doing all original composition, make an effort to play any requests you get. There are no stupid songs or stupud requests, just stupid musicians who don't realize when someone from the audience is telling them how to be liked. 12 Understand the difference brtween playing for pleasurs (i.e. your own edification) and playing for money. If you play in bars, your job is not tp play music well. Your job is to put butts in seats snd keep them there. Your job is make every customer glad that they decided to come and spend time and money seeimg you/your band. Every customer is an opportunity. The owner of the establishment did not hire you to play good music. Always remember, that at the end of the night, the owner's cash register is your judge, jury and executioner. It is the sole arbitor of whether you were a good band or a bad band. It alone determines whether you live or die at this venue. Even mediocre musicians can survive playing the bar scene if they learn this. 13. Have a thick skin. Always accept constructive criticism and react with gratitude. Take what was offered as a genuine effort to help you becpme better. Accept such criticisms from better musicians, lesser musicians, venue owners, venue staff (an often snubbed group who know far morebthan what they are credited for, and finally, from audience/customers. I'm not suggesting all criticism is constructive - we all know better. But if you get huffy everytime someone makes a suggestion, you are throwing away a huge opportunity to improve yourself. Better musicisns will lesrn not to invite you.

I started music school when I was thirty; I learned so much more than I thought I would. I'm still growing from those years 40 years ago. I became a much better guitar player because I finally learned what to practice, i.e. chord tones, scales, etc. You were required to have a decent understanding of the piano. They made you take enough lessons and pass a certain skill level. You can keep learning until you die.

when learning a song it is more important to leearn the idea behind it than getting caught up on the small detail
@petit87 5 anos atrás
Rhythm and TIMING. Once you can internalise rhythm well - knowing always where the 1 is then you can start to manipulate it and make your playing more fluid. Once you can do this you can find the timings that you connect with, when to pause, when to hold, when to enter and when to exit. The more you do this then phrasing will eventually occur that feel really really good, and something which you're more emotionally connected to. The more you then focus on how to emotionally connect to how you produce phrasing - the more you might find the holy grail for any musician: your true voice on an instrument. When I was younger I raced off absorbing as many techniques as I could which I would always try to weld onto my playing to make it seem more complete. It was only when I really really focused in on rhythm and timing that I felt I was connecting to the music in a wider way - from that I find the right technique to apply to an idea AFTER having connected to how the song was starting to feel. For me, technique always follows the idea - the idea is king. I put Timing in caps because I personally believe this is the true bridge between rhythm and melody. Playing with timings can truly teach you both - it is such a big deal if you can spot the tiniest windows in bars to drop notes in - it gives you so many new angles with which to express yourself. If you toss away the success/failure/will i get recognised anxiety for a moment - at its basic core it makes making music so much more pleasurable.

Took piano lessons as kid...wrote a song and was asked to perform it (10 yearold)...hated it...still bash my head against it trying to learn stuff (Peanuts theme, Ragtime, etc) Forced to attempt Coronet in grade school...didn't have the lips for it. Didn't have access to guitar...really wanted to get into drums, but it was not recommended and was talked out of it. 30 years later I bought a set of Roland electronic enjoying the hell out of I am in the market for a Strat.

Drummed my whole life (mid-40's now). My "life regret" is not starting guitar at age 10. The truth is, who cares. I am so passionate now, I'm stoked to be able to play guitar for the rest of my life. (just got a Strat a year ago - "earned" it after learning lots of music theory stuff on my beater electric guitar I bought 20 years ago and let it sit on the shelf due to not figuring out what to do with it). I am LOVING every second of learning music. Sounds like I'm not the only one ;)

idk why people talk others out of drums. When I talked my best bud into drums, I saw how his family and many friends tried to persuade him into not doing it. What the fuck? Music is good, is good for your brain, dealing with emotions, and many other things, people are so annoying sometimes.

Hard to imagine Rick not being able to hook up a PA :) Key was asking. I've played with hundreds of musicians over the years, great musicians and smart people, but they never learned this stuff because they were afraid to admit they had no idea where to start... 37, Wow! Hearing this as 36 making a transition from just playing to hopefully engineering. These videos are such a great help. If you are one of those musicians who turns up to gigs and always waits for someone else to set the PA up, and never do sound, you are seriously missing out.
@michaelalbro6856 5 anos atrás
Best thing I did was “ after learning some chords and wanting to start learning some lead licks” is purchase a loop pedal, you can lay some 12 bar chord progressions down and play over it, experimenting around with different major & pentatonic scale modes, triads and such. Of corse if you have a friend who plays too, play together every chance you can and teach and learn together.

@a1guitarmaker 5 anos atrás
At 17 I joined a 9-piece cover band that was hooked up with a booking agency. We worked regularly. A few years later when that band dissolved three of us recruited a drummer and formed a 4-piece original band. We had a "5th member" who handled booking, management, and ran sound. When that band dissolved I kept working but made some business decisions that resulted in a lot of lateral moves which kept working but never led to much career advancement. Sometimes I wish I had hooked up with a personal manager when that second band broke up. Also, I could have moved from Atlanta to Nashville when many of my friends did back in the 70s. In other words, I wish I had known how to mind the business side.

I tell my students that learning to read standard notation makes you more employable. I played the musical "Rock Of Ages" last year on (3) guitars. The book was all chord symbols and standard notation. 2 songs had no chords, just notes on the staff. All the musicals I have played use standard notation.

I had the complete opposite experience with music school, reading and ears. My first year of Berklee my ear training teacher pulled me aside and tested to see if I could match pitches with my voice/ears....... I had no idea that you could match a note with a voice or on an instrument by just listening. I had never learned a bass part by ear. I bought songbooks and had my band mates learn the bass parts and teach me. WOW.... I was in shock, and I started making my own ear training tapes....33 years later I still am. I wish someone had told me about ear playing

@KowankoMusic 5 anos atrás
Good chat. I would say that all the 'marketable' skills I've amassed (which now allow me to make a living in music) came from one impulse: to fully realize my own music. Playing instruments, singing (lead and harmony), programming, mixing, arranging, performing onstage, getting tones, using effects, making videos -- I learned all of those things in the creative process. But if you'd given 17-yr-old me that laundry list of "things you should learn to be more well-rounded", I'd have been completely uninterested. So yeah, the hindsight thing is interesting to contemplate, but I think if you're following your heart and working from a passionate place, good things will follow.

@tommyhaynes8690 4 anos atrás
I learned theory before I started playing piano and it made my progression much easier. I do improvise a lot but theory gives me a framework and helps me understand what's going on and what the possibilities are. . I strongly advise learning it unless you're a genius. But if you're a genius you'll pick it up easy either way learn theory . And if you're going to learn theory get a piano or some kind of keyboard if you can . It's easy to understand intervals and chord structures and other things if you have a keyboard instrument available.

The recording aspect of this discussion resonated with me strongly, as it's my biggest weakness holding me back in a career. I'd like to think I write good songs, have a good ear, am a confident performer and can play several instruments adequetely; I've had plenty of support from friends and family that genuinely like my music, but when recording my ability and confidence almost completely disappears. It's made me scared to record my songs or work with recording somebody, because I know I'm not good enough and it takes me an extra week of serious practice just to scrape through a recording session, and still not even be satisfied. Plus I never have any idea what the person producing is doing, and just let them make all the decisions which leads creative problems later. Maybe an internship would make sense to try out!

These guys are so articulate which makes it very informative. I was very fortunate. in that I was taught (after playing for about 6 years with sporadic but more formal-type lessons, Mel-Bay, etc.) how to learn songs exactly by ear off records (!!!?) by the best rock guitarist in my hometown. It really developed my ear/brain combo to be analytical when listening and get it right or pretty damn close. My reading still sucks though.

I've been able to change my technique based on the styles of music I'm playing. It's happened after I stopped playing gigs. When you're in a band you are so focused on the material for that band that all other styles are ignored. So I've begun practicing at sweep-picking and fingerpicking Travis style after age 50 and it's been funa dn satisfying

Had Piano lessons starting at 7, quit piano at 9 (just as I started the 2 hand stuff), took saxophone in 5th grade (11 yo) until I graduated high school. I couldn't read music due to my poor eyesight and as soon as the page filled up, I couldn't see it. The entire time I played guitar, learning by ear. Multitudes of different bands playing the bar circuit for 20 years. All these years later, as a live sound engineer, seeing union musicians come in to the gig, forgetting their music stand, and not being able to play the gig--and it is old standards...2 things to bring and they forget one and can't play the gig, go figure....

I'd love to see you have a conversation with a professional actor & a screenwriter (3 way conversation) to discuss the parallels between those three professions. A lot of what you guys are saying here applies to everything I know about acting & screenwriting (screenwriting is my passion but acting is how I pay my bills). I'm also a musician but not professionally - I just play for fun but did go to school for music for a couple of years and I'm glad I did because the whole TV/Film/Theater industry is like one HUGE complex puzzle with many pieces and music is one of those pieces, a very important one too. In screenwriting we talk about "emotional beats" that you need to hit within a story - with conflicts leading to resolution and a very clear "emotional arc" of the character. A well written story is always about the heroes journey of emotional change - and that's why it''s important to VERY clearly define who the character is within the first five pages/minutes because if you don't demonstrate who the character is emotionally (early on) then you can't demonstrate any emotional change. I'll BET that if you were to facilitate a conversation like this you'd get a lot out of it - more than you would ever expect.

I was super lucky growing up. Music is in my family and in my genes. My aunts, mom, dad and older brother were all musicians to one degree or another. My brother had perfect pitch, and I've always had relative pitch. We got a piano in the house when I was 7, and my dad used to sing and play old Johnny Cash songs on guitar from my earliest memories. I can still 'hear' all those old Elvis and Beatles songs that were always on the radio when I was a toddler. My mom remarried in my youth, and my stepdad was also a singer/guitarist who had actually written and recorded a few songs (that never went anywhere). This was in the 70's and he had a lot of 45's with his songs on them. Learning any instrument has always come easily and naturally to me. What I've concluded after many years now as a multi-instrumentalist is that you need really only 2 things: a sense of rhythm, and a strong desire to play music. After that, it's all a wonderful, exciting journey with bumps and twists in the road.

I dunno. I changed my guitar technique several times over the course of 30-something years I've been playing. Changed the way I hold the pick after like 15 years of holding it one way. Hell, even changed the way I hold the guitar when I play sitting down - only about 6-7 years ago moved it to my left knee and found it much more comfortable for the picking hand (not right away of course). Sure, it's not easy to relearn a skill but it's doable. Decided to learn sweep picking recently. I'm reasonably fast with my alternate picking even through 8-note arpeggios but that requires a lot of physical effort - figured I'd give sweeping a shot. :)

We played Country, Rock, Pop, Metal...we didn't know we just played what people liked in a.small town . We were pretty hot for 15 year olds. I also discovered jazz at 20. Jack Johnson Tribute!!

I think this really highlights the benefit of not being afraid to tell someone when you don't know something and ask for their help. Loads of people would be too proud to get a freshman to teach them to read music for example.

I learned to read music when I was like 11 or 12 and never used it again. Decided I wanted to learn to play guitar 26 years later and relearned to read sheet music in one night! Hah! I never forgot it, even after 25 years 😁 just needed to refresh my memory on how to read it.

It will take months for you're fingers to play it though 😂

I don't mind the covering up of your faces at all, it sounds better (HD 700) than usual. :) Podcasts are awesome, ideal while running, cycling, walking, cooking or cleaning.

​@The Tired Horizon If you cycle competitively on a racing bike, sure, don't listen to any podcast but concentrate 100% on the traffic and the cycling. If you cycle a long distance on a boring trajectory on a city bike for transport, then it is great if you have a few podcasts to listen to. I cycle regularly 40-60 km. (one direction) in a non competitive way.

That confused me. I still don't know why it matters if it's a "podcast" or not. Should we not have as good a sound if it's not a podcast. Why use lesser quality mics for other videos?

Rick - Why the Beatles' "I'll Be Back" is a master class in rhythm-guitar chord strumming! Listen to what each of the acoustic guitars are doing - differently, at the same time! How about a show on that??

Rick, you have the box for everything! All your Apple stuff for instance. You're a great music teacher and an even better box collector!

I have found that regardless of whatever employment, hobby, or pursuit of happiness that I have engaged with... - Schooling of any relational type is worthwhile, but I probably only really would use about 10 to 20% of whatever the ciriculum provided. I've gone through 11 years of formal, conservatory music training, 14 years of elementary/secondary schooling, 6 years of trade apprenticeships, 2 years of community college, and 3 years of university... The overwhelming majority of the educational cirriculum was not relevant in my life, and work. - Necessity is the mother of invention, or the reason to learn and implement knowledge. The moment that gaining specific skills and knowledge becomes a necessity, is the moment that learning these items will be desirable, and attainable. - Surrendering, and immersing myself in whatever I would desire is absolutely the only way that I have ever been successful in learning and application of what I NEEDED to do. Even if it was a hobby, I would spend hours a day immersed in the pursuit. It's the only way I know that works.

Started on trumpet, bass in orchestra and then piano as a music major...When I started guitar and electric bass I bought level 1 books played through them and then bought big jazz guitar and bass lesson books that all showed alternate picking as the way so that's how I've always done it. Kind of too bad I was too much of a snob to even consider learning any heavy metal techniques that would have helped my technique expand quite a bit.

Man hearing Rick learning sound engineering at 36 really gives me some inspiration. I have been a musician for 22 years without any real success. I even tried to quit at one point. But with this kinda talk it gives me some hope!!

So? Do you have the dedication and drive to put yourself out there and succeed? That's the important part.

Such great stories Such a great listen Smart men that grabbed it by the keys (fret board, kahunas) and really loved the craft and became who we all wish we could be our own better versions of.

OMG!! Thank you Rick for saying out loud what I've struggled with for years. We're about the same age and economy and sweep picking are beyond me. I had been playing for too long before I was exposed to it. So frustrating!!

I was playing Johnny Winter licks with Strict alternate picking! I would have to really concentrate make sure i was doing it , live, in a band playing out. I kept hearing i sound like Steve Brown of Trixter? When i finally saw Brown play, he was doing all the same licks but with economy picking , like it was nothing . I heard he learned from Dan DiPetro of TT Quick, who then just joined a cover band called straight Face , he was really good . Someone mentioned he taught Zakk Wylde at some point. my cousin played me the first Journey Record, when i heard Neil Schon play that ripping fast stuff he never does anymore, i knew he started it

Rick saying he was 37 and getting to grips with production makes me feel better. 36yo, recording for years and still learning things (playing and recording) that I want to do.

RIP Roy Clark. Rick Beato, your whole channel intrigues me, but it's like trying to learn Swahili ... I have no clue what you're talking about. Sigh. I listen, but don't comprehend.

Tabs are good for getting you in the right zip code you have to use them in conjunction with LISTENING or playing along with the song. I run my tablet into my PA system and play with the recording I use the tabs as a way to get you in the zipcode and once you have that part right then the rest will often just fall into place

You are a true master Rick! I would love to meet you some day. I love watching and learning. I had pretty much given up the idea of playing music though. I was born into it and my father was a jazz piano player and we rebuilt pianos for many years. We did everything. It's something that takes a lifetime to understand. Have you ever heard of Luigi Cherubini??? I think Lyle Mays knew of him. Garry Husband remembers "The Four Freshman". My father was in that group. He's such a nice guy who texts me back all the time. Isn't that something special! Love you brother. We are the same age too! "'

It comes back.. After being away for quite awhile, I'm getting back into it. I'm mainly a bass player and really the hardest thing is getting my hard fingers back.
@stratosergio59 3 anos atrás
its amazing how much my life and Ricks look alike , i am 61 , i play guitar i have been a music producer (not anymore) i ve done jingle work, music for tv. I started in the 70,s y love to play drums im mostly self taught (but i can read music and ive been studyng musical theory all my life, ) my first recorder was a tascam portastudio 4 track and my sequencer was an Ensoniq esq 1 and an atari 1040 St. with Notator musical software. the only thing that held me back was that i live in a small city were you cant support yourself as a musician , so i now i work in agriculture. but i enjoy Ricks Videos , keep on doing it.
@rexterrocks 4 anos atrás
I still have 2 Tascam porta studios from the 80's. I think it was more fun than using one of the digital laptop studios of today.
@zorkwhouse8125 3 anos atrás
Really great video - thank you. I'm 39 and I've been on here trying to learn more about the "right" way to play, since I was self-taught the first time around and never really got all that good (at guitar/piano/bass) before life intervened and I had to take a break from the band I was in and just playing music at all. My sentiment is the same with regard to piano lessons. My parents even offered to pay for me to have them, but I turned it down at the time b/c even though I was a significant music fan and listener, I didn't picture playing myself. Fast forward nearly 30 years and now I kick myself for not taking those piano lessons. If I could give any advice, I would whole-heartedly second (or I guess third :-) ) the recommendation that people take music lessons of some sort when they are younger or just starting out, regardless of age. If you're starting up later in life it is going to be more difficult simply b/c of the way our brains are wired, but its not impossible to pick stuff up when you're older - it just means you often end up having to work a bit harder. But that may make it that much more rewarding to you when you've gotten a handle on something new - b/c the journey was tougher, the accomplishment can feel greater.
