I Found My Inspiration Again!

I have struggled for years trying to learn left hand placement, and the mechanics of the various chord changes, but alone this is nearly impossible.

Everything Jamie describes is what I am experiencing, from having a bad teacher to trying to teach myself. I watched videos of teachers saying "Watch me play it, now you do it." They never tell you the real mechanics of how the fingers must work. This is what is missing from everyone else’s lessons. I think I just found my inspiration again!

See how these guitar players improved...

Stacey took a year of lessons from a "Song A Week" guitar teacher and she still couldn't play anything well. She had crippling tension in both hands which made finger control impossible. If she continued practicing that way, things would only get worse. Watch the following videos and see her improvements after she learned how to practice using "The Principles"

First, she learned how to change chords fast enough to play a whole song smoothly with no breakdowns.....

Then, she was ready for more complex guitar playing, such as the fingerpicking in this classic song.....

What are The Principles of Correct Practice for Guitar?

Guitar Principles is the ONLY guitar practice method that prevents and fixes the fundamental finger problems ALL guitar students have. The creator of this revolutionary guitar practice method, Jamie Andreas, spent years studying certain subjects that are vital to training fingers to play guitar.... anatomy, motor control learning, yoga and tai chi to name a few.

Jamie also spent 25 years teaching all styles of guitar to all ages and levels of students, from 5 years old to 85 years old. Finally, Jamie developed a foolproof system of practice approaches and finger development exercises that worked for everyone!

The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar

Existing guitar methods merely give you content..they show you WHAT guitar players do. Most guitar teachers merely demonstrate good playing to their students, over and over, and hope the student will be able to do it too. This teaching method works - for about 1% of the population!

"The Principles" system works for everyone who uses it... everyone becomes a REAL guitar player!

3 Reasons Why Guitar Principles is for You...

Most players struggle with bar chords, hammers & pulls, guitar scales, etc. because they learn them in a random and ineffective manner. Guitar Principles gives you the detailed instruction you need, with progressive exercises and methods that work for everyone who uses them. Here are 3 reasons why Guitar Principles is for everyone.

Physical Mastery Of The Guitar

Guitar Principles gives you physical mastery of the guitar. Step by step training gives your fingers the ability to work with ease and control on guitar.

Play All Essential Guitar Techniques With Ease

Guitar Principles trains your fingers to perform all essential guitar techniques with the smoothness and control that music requires.

Music doesn't sound like music if the player is struggling to play.

Practice For
 Maximum Results

Guitar Principles teach you how to practice for maximum results. You will see yourself get better every time you practice guitar.

 If you don’t know how to practice, you can’t effectively train your fingers - practice becomes a waste of time. ​

What Do I Get From The Principles?

Get A Feeling of Confidence And Satisfaction With Every Practice Session!

Like all guitar pros, you will know how to train your fingers to learn and play whatever music you love.​

Get Fingers That Play Easily

After you remove the tension built from years of incorrect practice, your fingers will dramatically improve in speed and precision.

Get A Powerful Right Hand

Your picking and fingerpicking will have new power and speed when you learn the right hand practice techniques that all the greats know, but that you never knew existed.

Are you experiencing these common problems learning guitar?

1. Having trouble changing chords fast enough to play a song?
2. Having trouble playing a WHOLE song without breaking down?
3. Having trouble playing scales?
4. Having trouble playing ANYTHING without struggling?
5. Feeling like you are NOT getting better on guitar for all the time and money you spend....and you just don't know why!

If you said YES to any of these questions, you have tension in the muscles of the hand and arm when you play. You can't feel it, and don't know it is preventing you from being a good player, but you will learn to feel it, and eliminate it, when you practice guitar correctly!

Don't worry. It’s easy to learn how to practice guitar for results, and the best place to start is here!

Behind the Principles: JAMIE ANDREAS

Hi, I'm Jamie Andreas. I started playing guitar at age 14. By the age of 17 I was already giving concerts and teaching guitar. The first thing I noticed when I began teaching was that I was a terrible teacher! How did I know this? Because although I played pretty well, most of my students were struggling, they could NOT learn guitar as easily as I did.

I was so upset at taking people's money and not turning them into guitar players (which is what they were paying for!) that I quit teaching. When I returned to teaching a few years later, I had a new mission - I was going to figure out a system that worked for everybody, a teaching method that would make anyone who used it a REAL guitar player.

It has been over 40 years now and I am so happy to say that my mission was SUCCESSFUL. I am proud and happy that my book "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar" has helped many thousands of guitar players make the progress they have been looking for, and become the guitar player they always wanted to be.​

It does not matter to me what age the student is, what style they want to play, or whether they are beginners or long time players. It does not matter to me whether they wish to simply come home from work at night and strum and sing their favorite songs, or become rock stars or concert artists. My job is to hook each student up with their own musical satisfaction whatever form that might take. My job is to make sure they understand how to get good on guitar, and how to keep getting better.

It is my pleasure to do for them what I have always done for myself, create a happy guitar player!

With The Principles, You Can Play Any Style Of Guitar.....

Acoustic Blues




Great guitar players very often are not great teachers.

They just give you more music to play, and hope you can play it!

Great teachers turn OTHER people into good players – when it comes to lessons, it doesn't matter how well your teacher plays, it only matters how well you play!

Great players don’t usually know why they play so well, and they don’t know why you don’t!

Song-a-Week Teachers

Beware of the "Song-a-Week Teacher"... you know, every week you "learn" a new song. This means you spend time practicing the song, end up struggling with it, "play" it for your teacher, and they say, "Well, practice it more, and let's learn a new song"... After a while, you have a whole lot of songs you can't play!

Guitar Principles teaches you how to train your fingers, step by step, and to play your music easily and smoothly!

​You have 2 choices...

Keep practicing songs that fall apart when you play them.

Learn how to practice music so that you really enjoy playing....and others enjoy listening!

Jamie is the only instructor who teaches the physical ability to play guitar!

Folks, it’s absolutely true that Jamie is the only instructor who teaches the physical ability to play guitar. Except for those teachers who are wise enough to use Jamie’s method, I suppose.

I look around at the state of instruction for guitar, and I only find one person out of all guitar educators, who bases instruction on the science of producing sound, the biomechanics of doing it, and the neurology of learning to do it well. Jamie Andreas, of course. I just don't understand how out of 7 billion of us, only one has recognized the need to understand how our bodies and brains work, and how to apply that to playing and teaching guitar.......David Pike, guitarist

Jamie Andreas Interviewed in Guitar Zero

In 2012 Jamie Andreas was interviewed by Dr. Gary Marcus for his upcoming book on the science of how people learn guitar. Also interviewed were jazz legend Pat Martino and Tom Morello from "Rage Against The Machine".

"A teacher who impressed me immensely, and who takes a very different approach, was Jamie Andreas. Jamie is one of the few teachers who seems interested in the relationship between muscle and brain, and how to use one’s body efficiently. Swim coaches and golf teachers consider such questions all the time, but it’s decidedly rare in the field of music instruction.

I Found My Inspiration Again!

I have struggled for years trying to learn left hand placement, and the mechanics of the various chord changes, but alone this is nearly impossible.

Everything Jamie describes is what I am experiencing, from having a bad teacher to trying to teach myself. I watched videos of teachers saying "Watch me play it, now you do it." They never tell you the real mechanics of how the fingers must work. This is what is missing from everyone else’s lessons. I think I just found my inspiration again!

After 5 Years, I Know This System Works!

The mind is a powerful practice tool, but first, the mind needs to have the right information. This information is found in “The Principles Of Correct Practice for Guitar” and other publications by Jamie Andreas. I’ve been using them for over five years now and know that this system works. Thank-you, Jamie!

I'm living proof that Jamie's Methods Work

Jamie's work is so incredibly unique and necessary. As a professional musician and music educator, I'm living proof that what Jamie teaches is completely valid, and it works!

If someone only cares about the chords or notes of a song, geez they don't need to pay me or any other teacher. Use Google and find that info for free. But "how" to play these things? Much different story, and Jamie is THE master at this!

I Use The Principles Every Day!

I use "The Principles" every day. I have had it for over 10 years.

A HUGE Milestone!

Jamie, I just want to say Thank You for your practice method and teaching guidance!

We had new friends over last night. They saw my guitars and asked if I played. I played and sang House of the Rising Sun on my electric and Fast Car on my acoustic. I am thrilled to say that I had no problem playing and singing both songs and although I had a few butterflies, when I placed my first hand position the slow practice and continuous contact with the guitar paid off and I was calm and relaxed throughout the rest of the song.

Considering a few months ago I struggled with simple 3 chord strumming songs, to play flat-pick and finger style confidently for others is a huge milestone!

After 30 Years of Struggle - I Can Play Guitar!

Jamie's Guitar Principles of Correct Practice has been amazingly helpful to me. I have been struggling with guitar off and on for 30 years, and her guidance has allowed me to reach a level of skill and enjoyment I could never find before, and allowed me to break through the "wall" that I kept hitting on my own.

Past teachers - even those who were conservatory trained- somehow missed the boat. Many thanks to Jamie Andreas!

I Discovered Success in My Playing and Practicing.With The Principles

I took a few group lessons. I started feeling that I was attempting to play way beyond my ability. The number of complicated techniques boggled my mind and frustrated my fingers. My right shoulder kept aching so much that I would have to stop playing and rub it.

The Principles explained many things about playing guitar that I had not noticed or knew to be on the lookout for. I have looked at many guitar instruction books, and this is the only one that really addresses where to be within your body in order to become a musician.

That rushing, frenzied, frustrated feeling in practice is gone now. Also, I was in pain before and I am not anymore. The "Principles" have helped me redefine and rediscover success in my playing and practicing."

Super Excited About Practice!

I've recently started using "The Principles". I'm absolutely loving it so far. Your approach lines up perfectly with what I have learned in the past from meditation, yoga and lifting weights and seeing all the parallels is incredible and convinces me that your method will work for me.

I've been in a rut for a while, now I'm super excited about practice!
