GUITAR TECHNIQUES – IMPORTANT FOR YOUR GUITAR PLAYING GROWTH
These lessons split people into two camps. Some guitar players love nothing more than spending hours playing through finger bending technique exercises. Then, there are other people who really don’t care for them. It’s a drudgery that they wish they would not have to deal with. If you are in the second camp of people then please, we’d like you to think again and reconsider. If you can change your attitude, then you can change the way you play.
Technique is a means to an end, it’s not the end in itself. This is one of the big mistakes that young musicians make. They put huge amounts of hours into their technical ability, but forget what it’s all really about; making music. So, see technique as a door. You want to open and walk through that door; that is what technique is all about. Once you have walked through that door, you will be able to play better, more accurately, longer and it gives you the skills you need to express yourself.
Each video lesson that we provide in this course looks at a particular area of guitar playing that may need strengthening. For example, it may be string skipping, it may be finger stretching exercises, or it may be plectrum technique. Below you will see a video from one of the lessons in the course, it’s all about how to hold a pick or plectrum.
