40 Quick Guitar Tips! #15: Record yourself
Sounds simple right?! Are you doing it? Hopefully you are. If you aren’t, then you need to start.
Why? The recording never lies. You can fudge your own memory after a gig but you can’t change the honesty of a recording! Harsh, yes of course, but if you want to accelerate you’re playing skills you need to be honest with yourself.
A good tip is to just record you playing along to a metronome. Remember if you want to play over a backing track, you should be able to turn that track right down low so you can get an honest opinion of your playing.
