Even if you are just beginning to play guitar- using visualization as a part of your practice routine will help you improve quickly. Visualization the formation of a mental image of something, in this case, chords, scales or anything related to guitar playing. If you are familiar with sports at all, you may have heard the phrase "see it before you do it'. This applies to playing guitar as well. If you are going to be a great musician you have to be able to see things before you play them.
If you aren't sure what I mean, try this exercise:
If you can do all of those perfectly, without picking up your guitar, then congratulations, you are great at using visualization and have are many steps ahead of those that cannot do this. If you needed to pick up your guitar for any part of this exercise, then it should now be clear that you need more work in this area of your playing.
When you are practicing, set aside 5 minutes per practice session where you put your guitar down and practice visualizing. Start with visualizing one chord until you see it perfectly in your mind. You can also use visualization for chord changes and seeing how your hands move effortlessly from chord to chord.
After you finish visualizing, pick up your guitar and see what the results are. This may take a few tries to start to get the hang of it but stay with it. It will pay off in a big way for you.
