Practicing via Stephen Aron

Nice article about practicing via Stephen Aron Guitar Studio. He gives us context about practicing and also outlines what types of things make up a balanced practice session. Here is the intro paragraph:

But practicing is a difficult and complicated subject, fraught with opportunities for failure. I often think that what I teach isn’t guitar, but practicing.
