Jimi Hendrix: Hero

Jimi Hendrix: Hero

A friend shared the Jimi Hendrix interviews from the Dick Cavette Show with me today. He knows Hendrix is one of my heros, but he didn’t know this is my favorite interview of Hendrix and that I think of it to hold myself to a higher standard. Let me explain a bit, then you should watch the videos and decide for yourself.

How do you manage your practice time?

How do you manage your practice time?

When I practice, it's hard to stay focused and manage how I use my time. I just have too much fun. So, I use a timer to force myself to stop. Lately, I've been planning practice sessions in advance. I break up a thirty minute session into five - five minute sessions. I know that's only twenty five minutes, but that gives me a buffer to make some notes on what I need to do next. I make a list of five, or more things in advance and keep the amount of time reasonable by limiting sessions to thirty minutes.

What works for you?
