Maybe Joe has the right formula for becoming a seriously good guitarist. A love of music, combined with living in the outback hundreds of miles from anywhere, a guitar, and not much else to do except practice and play every waking moment including waking up at 4 am to practice 4 hours before school! Then win a talent contest, become known in you country, then gamble it all and move to America and start all over were no-one knows you.  Talent yes, but there's a lot more to it don't you think?

Neil,

Yes, Joe is an amazing example of determination, passion, risk-taking and hard work.

We've talked many times, on camera and off, about his amazing journey.

Let me sum it up.

He wanted to play guitar and decided nothing would stop his determination to make it his career.

He's had tons of setbacks. None that he decided to agree with and make an excuse for not moving forward.

He wasn't afraid to give up "everything" to pursue his goals.

"Everything" also included his personal comfort - which is something that most stop short of when they say they are willing to do everything it takes. 

Yes, he gets up and practices at 4am in the morning.

But I've also watched him play big events and small events with the same amount of determination.  It's clear that the motivation is not the size of the event but whether he can personally do his best.

He's extraordinary and we all could use a good dose of Joe's determination in our own development.

Amen!

Although, I don't think I could drive around Nashville during the summer with my air conditioner turned off 🙂

I am going to work on getting up earlier to practice.

Thanks for having Joe on Live Lessons.

Forgot how cool Joe Robinson is, thanks for the show.  Makes personal analysis and goal setting relative to one's life-time to dust off the alarm clock!
