8 Best Pieces of Musical Advice Ever

Updated: Jun 19

Hi fam,

I was recently reminiscing about some of the people who’ve had a big impact on me musically throughout my life. Once I started going down this rabbit hole, I figured I would write down some things they said that helped me progress on the guitar.

All this reflection led me to create this video called “The 8 Best Pieces of Musical Advice Ever.” Of course, these aren’t the best 8 pieces of musical advice in the world. They are just the ones that had a profound effect on me. You can help make this even better by leaving the best pieces of musical advice you’ve received over the years in the comments below the video.

Here are the 8 pieces of musical advice. Of course, we go into more detail on each one in the video. Thanks for watching, Nate
