Tips On Learning New Skills Fast

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Trying to improve your golf swing or want to master that tricky guitar chord -- we found out how to learn these skills, double time.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins say you can double how quickly you learn skills like those by introducing subtle variations into your practice routine.

To build up muscle memory, we've all heard repetition. But this new research suggest that training is incomplete.  Rather than doing the same thing over and over, you will learn faster by changing up the routine.

Just slight variations will work. For example, if you try to nail a 12-bar blues in A major on the guitar, spend 20 minutes playing the blues in E major, too.
