Learning guitar can be a struggle...
I FIX THAT!

There are THREE problems you have that make learning guitar a struggle.
Scroll down and I'll tell you what they are...

Playing Guitar is first and foremost a Physical Activity

Learn to walk  before you try to run......or play!

Most people begin learning guitar by trying to play real music. This is like a child trying to run and jump in the playground before they have learned to stand up and walk!

You must teach your fingers to walk easily on the strings before they can run and play music easily. None of the lessons, methods or teachers you have had have given you this training. So, you struggle....

Quick Tips

You are playing with great tension in the body and fingers you don't feel.

Muscle memory locks stress into all the  muscles of your body every time you practice. ​​​​

You don't feel it, but it ruins your finger control.

Quick Tips

Because you have been trying to run  before you can walk, the muscles of your body have  been operating under stress. Sometimes great stress, sometimes less. Nevertheless...

This stress has become locked into your body through the power of muscle memory, It is there, and reinforced every time you practice or play. This stress destroys your ability to control your fingers with the precision music demands. 

You Started Learning At First Fret

If you began learning guitar at the first fret, your untrained fingers struggled to ​deal with the stretch and strength required.

All guitar methods start the beginner off playing notes or chords at the first fret. This requires the arm being extended far from the body, which causes great tension in the shoulder and upper body. 

This tension in increased as beginner finger try to make the difficult stretches required. This tension becomes locked into your muscles every time you practice. You have never known what it is to make movements quickly, easily, and powerfully on the guitar.
