The Perfect Sized guitar
In my experience, especially since I began fingerpicking I always look for good quality vintage guitars, Parlor guitars, OM, 000 or Grand Orchestra sized guitars. I find them the easiest to play especially for fingerpicking. These guitars are normally well build, many built with solid wood construction and most are amazing sounding with great tone.
Everyday Guitar Challenge
Now before you say, “yeah right”, this is not a challenge for you, it is a challenge for myself. What you need to do is to figure out your own guitar challenge. I consider myself to be very lucky that I can pick my guitar up everyday to play and practice. That only happened in the last six months as I was like most people and picked it up when I felt the urge. The point is that if you want to improve you will need to make goals and challenge yourself to meet them. It could be picking the guitar up three times a week and additionally sticking with your challenge will not only improve your playing but also enhance your enjoyment of playing too.
