My best routine
on a guitar all day with a band. I'll sing,
play guitar and bass, play drums and work on songwriting with my team.
My 2nd best
3 hours of guitar
-play 1 scale and record
-play 1 chord progression
1 hour singing
15 - 30 minutes piano
working on a melody
15 - 30 minutes lyrics
1 - 2 hours songwriting
Produce with Ableton or fruity loops
I used this routine 6 hours a day for 6 months
(10 years ago) and
played INSANE riffs, rhythms, lines and solos. I could improvise
parts that sounded like Dragonforce,
David Gilmore (from Pink Floyd) and fingerpicking flamenco combined.
Play 1 group at medium
speed. I'd hammer-on
twice as fast and play loud and soft. See play fast
I'd strum, finger
pick, mute with both hands and sing to the rhythm.
I played a different
chord progression everyday. I'd play it and sing

I'd use one style for
a full day.
I'd use the other method 10 - 20% of the time (each day) to stay loose. Then I'd switch
the next day.
I played everything at 1 tempo for the day, and would play it faster or
slower. Example 100 BPM = 50 BPM = 200 BPM (then add triplets) =
33 BPM = 300 BPM = etc.
I haven't done that in years, but it works GREAT. You'll be
very good in a few months. You'll be world class in 1 year.
