Deliberate Practice For Bass Guitar 2.0: How To Practice For Constant And Consistent Improvement…
You’ve heard the cliche practice makes perfect, right?
Then there’s the variation attributed to a sports coach: practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. The deliberate practice version of this line is: perfect practice makes mental representations.
Do you know what mental representations are?
Mental representations are the “mental models” that practicing creates. The research concluded that the main element that distinguished elite chess players from average chess players were the quantity and quality of the mental representations that their hours of study and practice had produced.
It’s the same for every discipline.
The good news? Mental representations are a natural by-product of practice.
The bad news? Most people don’t know how to practice effectively.
That’s where Deliberate Practice 2.0 comes in. Not only does this volume cover mental representations in more detail, but here are some of the other practice items you’ll learn:
