Zakk Wylde and 2 of His Mighty Quotes that Will Last You A Lifetime

It’s Zakk Wylde Time… I wanna share with you 2 quotes of his that I think will do wonders for your guitar playing and practicing sessions. Now heres a guitar beast if there ever was one. And he uses fundamentals every morning. The basics. He is a Guitar Titan that has taken over the music industry in the Heavy Rock arena and made things go HIS way. From Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist at 19 years old to Black Label Society (His own band) to his latest releases as a solo artist. This guy has some Savage Guitar Practicing Wisdom that will hit you like a ton of bricks.   You’ve probably seen them somewhere or read them before but they’re worth mentioning a thousand times. Its timeless yet priceless advice. Sort of like practicing guitar…you have to repeat things until they’re engrained in the space between you’re ears.   Here’s Numero Uno: “When I first started playing, I’d practice every chance I could.

There was a period when I was putting in something like nine or 10 hours a day! Nowadays, I can’t always do that because I’ve got shit to do, whether...

Well this is absolutely not true at all. Heres why. You need to have realistic expectations. Thinking that you will be the next Jimi Hendrix when you’re starting to play guitar at the age of 40 or older is probably unrealistic but it doesnt mean you can’t have a whole helluva lot of fun playing guitar. Thinking like that will probably get...
