From the Author
"Stairway to Heaven, Dust In The Wind, Blackbird.....yes, we all love these awesome fingerstyle guitar songs. That is why it is such a shame that so many guitar students are clawing their way through these songs, as they struggle to get those right hand fingers to play the right strings, and get the music out smoothly and easily.

Well, Guitar Principles is putting an end to that situation! Our "Classical/Fingerstyle Foundation Course" will give you a right hand that is completely trained to play ANY fingerstyle song or musical passage you will ever come across!

Filled with powerful concepts and training methods for both hands, you will reach a level of skill you never thought possible."

Happy Practicing,
