That’s Not A Musical Exercise, I don’t Like it!

You hear exercises being described as unmusical very often. But how much sense does it make to label a jazz guitar exercise as unmusical? When we practice then it is maybe more about looking at the skill we are improving than whether an exercise is musical or not?
In this video, I am discussing this and also going over some common misconceptions about different types of guitar practice like metronome practice.
