Self-Taught Guitarist Wants to Improve his Skill
I took my new advertising campaign for guitar lessons on the road today – driving up to Vallejo CA to work with a guitar student. The GuitarConfidence.com wrap on my car is starting to attract attention and business.
I was teaching a student who has been playing guitar 3 years. This guitarist is self-taught and and had expressed interest in working with a professional guitar instructor to help him work on building strength and agility which improves chords, sound and speed.
Working on finger stretch in 1st position (Frets 1, 2, 3 and 4) put your left hand (L.H.) 1st finger on string 1 behind 1st fret and hold. Then add 2nd finger same string behind 2nd fret, 3rd finger behind 3rd fret and 4th finger behind 4th fret and hold for 60 seconds.
If you find this guitar fingering too easy pull your 4th (L.H.) finger up to 5th fret stretch using your right hand to aid in pulling up your L.H. 4th finger and then repeat this process also on strings 2,3,4 5 and 6.
This guitar stretch exercise only takes about 6 minutes a day, but the results within two weeks will blow your mind.
