From the Author
“For many years, I have trained all the people who come to me for private instruction in the meticulous use of the strategies contained in this book.
Many of them are widely used by professional musicians, and have been for years. Unfortunately, they are rarely discussed, and when they are, it is done in such a cursory fashion that it’s impossible for the student to understand what a particular practice strategy is about, much less how, why or when to use it.
In 'Beyond the Basic Practice Approach' I explain these very powerful practice skills that will take you way beyond mediocrity and will boost you up into the higher realm of playing the guitar."...Jamie
