I am actually interested in HOW you did this. Was it some sort of specific schedule? Was there a regimen-like practice program? Was it just "pull out my guitar whenever I look over at it"? Was it just pure stubbornness? I am only asking because my real issue with how good (or bad) I am at playing is that I don't practice nearly enough. But I am not sure how to overcome the laziness that life sometimes makes easy to take over. How was it that you were able to do it?
