As part of his book “Outliers”, Malcolm Gladwell stated that it requires ten thousand hours of training to master an art form or subject.

18 Minutes: Project Songs – This is the time you use the most concentration, focusing on whatever your present project tunes happen to be. It’s the place you are going to put the technique lessons to use and actually love playing guitar instead of just playing scales. Do not try to work on any more than a couple of tunes at one time. And in addition to learning to play it, you should definitely investigate the theory and structure also. The more you know about how music is built, the simpler it can be to learn even more songs down the road.
Lastly, you need to begin practicing the art of improvisation. Spend about 10 minutes or maybe 20 minutes of you practice session jamming to your favorite songs.

Try to sing your solo as you play it and try to get to the point where what you sing and what you play is the same. This is probably the hardest skill to master so keep at it because it will make you a master guitarist.

If you have an iPhone there are also plenty of apps available for digital recording.
