Guitar Fundamentals Series
In the Guitar Fundamental Series, we'll explore some of the most important concepts for guitarists. Just like a professional basketball player spends hours and hours each week working on dribbling and free throws, we, too, have guitar skills that all other tricks are built on.
Why not call it a beginners series? Because these are things we all should consider and think about every time we play. Believe it or not, most of the "guitar gods" are behind stage running their picking technique, scales, and drills just before they walk out on stage or the camera goes "live."
In this series we're going to cover a number of things that every guitarist should know, and many never are shown in their guitar lessons or think much about. Have problems switching chords? Get pains in your wrists or hands? Only able to play for 20 minutes? Do you feel slow and sluggish, while the guitarists you admire seem to effortlessly pull off what looks like magic? The secret to your success is hidden in that last sentence, and we'll flush it out over and over again throughout the tutorials in this series.
