Learning a new skill is always a challenge and faces new challenges every day. That is why we have prepared these tips to carry out conscious learning and develop new skills in a shorter period of time.
Always remember to analyze the action you want to learn, if what you want is to learn to play a song while following the rhythm and at the same time singing, the best way to learn is to break this down and learn each part separately to finally join gradually The parts we want to put together.
First learn the rhythm of the song by listening to it many times to the point of memorizing all the changes of rhythm and accents, then learn the notes in the ukuele that will give harmony to the song and memorize the sequence, as well as the phrases, changes and Goal attempts.
When you know the rhythm and the chords, put your creativity into practice and create your own strum, it doesn't matter if you don't know the original. You already know the song because you've heard it several times, you've already memorized every change and accent.
After or during this process, learn the lyrics of the song, if the lyrics are in another language, learn the pronunciation and also learn the meaning of the lyrics, they can give you references on which part of the song you are in or which part follows.
Finally, learn by adding the individual parts by adding them in combinations closer and closer to what you want to achieve. That is, alternate mixing chords + strumming, then chords + voice, then chords + strumming + voice. In this way you can later add skills to what you learn how to: sing + play + harmonica + tambourine, etc.
Although what we want is to learn faster we must be sufficiently aware of our mistakes and difficulties, in this way we will know where I am wrong or which part is hard for me to work and thus dedicate time of practice exclusively to work on these deficiencies and not Always make the same mistakes.
It is important to be honest with our learning and not compare ourselves with other people so we can pay attention to our learning process and make it more and more efficient.
Wrong is fine, it is normal and therefore we must learn from our mistakes, ignoring my mistakes or postponing the practice of that part where you always make mistakes is to delay your progress and let time pass without improving.
If you have already identified what your common mistakes are, specifically attack this area and you can add to your knowledge what you needed to avoid these errors.
The best advice we can give you is learn a couple of hours a day and practice the rest of your life.
