The Foundation Exercises



The "Foundation Exercises" are unlike any exercises you have seen, and yet, they are the key to mastering the guitar. They seem simple, but they give you the essential elements that go into building REAL guitar playing ability

They include:

 

* How to sit for practice so the body is relaxed and the fingers are able to learn.

* How to train the most primary left hand finger movements into the left hand...these movements must be learned with the proper  form and finger action before you can ever hope to play any type of scale at a fast speed on guitar.

* What you MUST know and do when training the right hand for strength, speed, and control.

Many guitar students have enormous playing problems simply because they have never been shown how to even sit with the guitar in a way that doesn't tense up all the muscles they need to control. I am dedicated to making this fundamental and essential training available to everyone who loves guitar. You can learn the basics of sitting and holding the guitar in my FREE Beginner Guitar Lessons. You will learn things in these lessons that you will not learn anywhere else. Many long time players still struggle in their playing because they don't know these things.
