    Step outside of your box.
    Learn a piece that is the polar opposite of the genre that you consider yours.
    Make yourself do it, note for note, no matter how long it takes or how difficult it may seem. Whatever it takes, do it. Then pick another genre, again not your own and do it again.

    Best upgrade?

    a change in Attitude.

    If you want to be "better" then you need to fully commit to it.

    cost? your time, patience and dedication.

    Unclear. Is he supposed to put it on the guitar's backside or his own backside?
