Inspiration - Go Grab It!

Inspiration - Go Grab It!
By Chris Standring ( www.chrisstandring.com )

We all get discouraged from time to time in our musical journey. It's only natural. "Mom, can I get a guitar for my birthday? - I really want to learn how to play guitar" - is often how it begins. Then lessons start and it's just all too much for many and most give up. This is the first 'wheat from the chaff' separation. Many students do struggle through, but start and stop many times along the way. Then there are the few that seem to have just that little bit more talent than others, the fascination to learn and the wisdom to see their own results. These are usually the small 1% who go on to greatness, or at least become professional musicians.

But no matter what category you might belong to in the above scenario, all of us will get discouraged at some point. It could be a beginner problem like not being able to make a barre chord sound clear. It could be an intermediate issue where a player cannot get out of the rut of sounding like playing scales instead of improvising good melody. Often it is when these roadblocks occur, and we don't know how to surmount them, that the trouble starts. At the professional level we can get discouraged simply because we get bored with the way we play and the way we sound to ourselves. Usually this is a time to dig in and learn some new vocabulary.

And it seems to me, at any level we are at, we just need to get some 'traction', you know, get some fire in our bellies to fuel ourselves to get over these little hurdles. Setting little goals is clearly a great practical way to get over these hurdles. Having said that, knowing what these goals are at the beginner level is extremely important (and private instruction with a mentor never hurt anyone in this case).

But what I really want to discuss in this article is understanding how to motivate yourself. It seems to me that inspiration is not cheap! Grabbing onto those moments when we are really excited and channeling them through our guitar are not moments that are with us all the time, so I think it can be quite useful to really think about those moments when they do arrive, and what led to those inspirational times, so we can do all we can to make them happen again when we need them.

I have talked before about the idea that simply doing something, will fuel doing something even more. I remember when I was at music college that I was on such a roll of practicing daily, that the idea of not practicing to that degree was just not an option. I was very focused about what I practiced and I saw results. This can be an extremely compelling reason to work hard. But it is usually when we think we are not improving that we get discouraged.

So my question to you right now is this. "What inspires you to play?" Be honest. Do you get excited when you hear another great player? When you pick up a new CD? When you go for a walk? After a...
