28 Day Great Guitar Challenge
Tyler Lieb kicks off this new workshop. Over the course of this series, we will explore various fundamental skills that are frequently overlooked but vital to meaningful musical progress. Have you seen the "100-day Sweep Picking Challenge"? That's the inspiration for this series. Learn active practice skills, understand what to play and why, set goals, instill confidence in your playing.
Each participant will learn how to choose what to work on, work together to identify the best ways to achieve these goals, and over the 28 days and 3 sessions, share our progress. 
We'll be having fun learning to use tools to mark progress, discussing our process, and learning how to practice successfully.
