The good news however is that you only need to play a finite number of reputations for something to become muscle memory. Being disciplined enough to accumulate enough reps however, is a different matter!
When it comes to working out at the gym and getting fit, or playing a sport, we accept that we need to repeat the same things over and over for weeks, months and even years. However when it comes to guitar, we seem to get bored of the same exercises and jump on YouTube to find something new and exciting to work on.
Don’t worry, it’s not just you, virtually every guitarists ever with access to a computer has done this, and before computers existed it was guitar magazine and even old VHS tapes (if you’re old enough to know what one of those is). The problem with this approach is you learn about a whole bunch of things without investing enough time into perfecting the, so you feel extra bad about your lack of progress because you now how more things you have discovered and now sucks at, and even more things on your radar to practice and now an overwhelming sense of dread at having to find time to practice them all.
