One of my favorite maxims is less is more. I love the idea of simplifying ideas, concepts, and techniques.
When it comes to doing research on the guitar, or finding information on a certain topic, I also take the less-is-more approach. I tend to research specific topics in small numbers at one time, and basically master the information that I have consumed.
I recommend the same for you, especially if you are a beginner.
The rest of this post goes over why having a less-is-more attitude about learning guitar helps build your momentum and your enjoyment of the guitar.
