Correct Guitar Practice Using "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar"


Imagine playing your favorite songs on the guitar easily, with no struggle, and always getting better! There is a method of practicing guitar that will, step by step, train your fingers for perfect action on the guitar. It is scientific because it follows the laws of "body learning", the same laws your muscles and nerves use to learn new movements. It is called "The Principles Of Correct Practice For Guitar". 

Virtually all existing guitar instructional material gives you content - not method. They give you notes to learn, chords to play, exercies to do. BUT, they do NOT show you how to practice this content in a way that will effectively teach your fingers to play the music! And so, you are left on your own. You have a go at it. Maybe you will get it, maybe you won't.

Most people don't. And even more people learn to play in a sloppy, haphazard, struggling way that limits their progress, and keeps them stuck at the same level of playing for years.

"The Principles Of Correct Practice For Guitar" will teach you how the fingers learn, how they need to be taught, and exactly what to do when you sit down to practice guitar. And speaking of sitting, you will learn.....

  • Why how you hold the guitar will determine whether you succeed in playing well
  • Why you must learn to use "super slow" no tempo practice
  • Why you must use a metronome when practicing
  • How to work up music from a slow speed to a flawless fast speed


"The Principles" is a proven method that works for everyone, because it is based on the scientific laws of how the body learns new movements.  Thousands of people who never thought they could learn to play guitar have become good guitar players, and thousands more have solved long standing playing problems and become better players than they ever thought they could be - all by using "The Principles". 


By using "The Principles of Correct Practice for Guitar" You will learn...

How tension becomes "locked-in" to muscles when you practice without sufficient awareness.....

How and why you adapt to that level of tension, how you are limited by it, and how, as time goes by, you consider it "normal".....

How you can cultivate "microscopic awareness", and how this awareness will allow you to practice with a new level of relaxation, "un-locking" the tension from the body, and how over time, muscle memory will help you build an entirely new foundation of technique.....

How playing the guitar will become an entirely new experience! What seemed hard (because you were really fighting your own "locked-in" muscle tension) will now be, and feel, EASY!

The "Principles" is composed of three elements:  

26 Foundation Exercises: Most players are handicapped to a some degree (often a great degree) because their hands were never properly developed from the beginning. This is because guitar instruction is often a haphazard affair. The exercises develope your fingers in a step by step way for perfect functioning on the strings.

34 Understandings: Your results in practicing depend completley on the quality of your practice. You know what they say "Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect!" Well, it's true - but you have to know and understand certain things before you can practice perfectly. All of that is explained in detail.

7 Tools:These are practice methods to be used to solve problems in playing and gain real playing ability. These approaches are based on certain key Understandings, such as Muscle Memory and Sympathetic Tension, as well as Attention and Awareness.
