JAMIE IS A REAL GUITAR TEACHER, and that is everything!...

I've been studying the principles for about 4 months now, and with all the amazing information, I feel I could already write a book about it. So, I'll try to keep it short and sweet. I have been through the normal roller coaster of learning guitar, for the past year and a quarter, and NOTHING WORKED! 
The only good thing that came from this is, that it forced me to keep searching for a real teacher...
That's when I found Jamie.

Yes, Jamie is amazing on guitar, but that is not important. JAMIE IS A REAL GUITAR TEACHER, and that is everything!


I can't say enough about the hope Jamie has given me, as I was very close to quitting guitar many times.

If you have no interest to play guitar CORRECTLY, you can go anywhere else. 
But, if you are fed up with always playing terrible, then commit to "Getting Started with the Principles"!
It is that simple!

See how these guitar players improved...

Stacey took a year of guitar 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.

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

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 every​​​​one who uses it... everyone becomes a REAL guitar player!

Why The Principles is for YOU...

There are THREE main traps majority of people who attempt to play guitar fall into. They....

1. Fail Completely..... or
2. Struggle for years to makes something that sounds like music..... or
3. Get Stuck. Becoming proficient with beginner material, but struggle to play anything with more advanced techniques, such as fast scales, hammers & pulls, or bar chords.

The 4 Essential Levels To Building A REAL Guitar Player

Now, there are 4 Levels to Guitar Success. And if you skip any of them, you cannot move to the next. It is like building a house. If the foundation is weak, every floor you build above it will be weak as well. The Foundation determines everything. When it comes to guitar method, the foundation is never given to students. The lucky ones find it on their own, most don't!

The first level is always the most important. You cannot get to the other levels without building your foundation. When you are struggling to play, or are stuck and can't better; When you don't know why your fingers don't work with control and relaxation as you play, or the tension on your fingers build up with every practice, I seriously urge you to consider THE FOUNDATION of your playing. And this is the main reason why "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar" is for you. This contains everything you need to know and do to strengthen and build the essential foundation of your playing. 


​​​​What do I get from The Principles?

1. 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.​​

2. 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.

3. 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.

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.

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!

These Students Know The Power of "The Principles"

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!

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.

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!
