One thought on “The Interleaving Method: A New and Improved Way to Practice Guitar

  1. This is super helpful Andy! Thanks for the great post. I will definitely try this out moving forward and let you know how I get on. I have a few initial questions:

    – How do warm-ups relate to this practice method?
    – Why sets of three and not four or five? Given the ‘Chunking’ principle, I’d assume that it would work for up to five practice elements, but I’m not sure.
    – What about learning and applying theory and sight reading and such? Do you find that the short time intervals allow for acquisition of more difficult tasks like these?

    Looking forward to hearing your response,
