Just wanted to let you know about a new series of videos I`m doing where I answer your guitar related questions.
In this new blog post, the very first of 2017, I`ll show you how a simple infographic (which, by the way, you can download for free at the bottom of the post) will help you transform your guitar playing to make it more fun, productive and much more inspirational – while helping you sky-rocket your levels of motivation on the guitar.
Today I am going to take you through a really powerful concept and one that will save you many hours, days, weeks and months learning and improving your guitar playing.
If you apply this simple method of learning the guitar you could make a couple of years’ worth of progress in much less time. It would be wrong and inaccurate of me to give you an exact figure but this method will save you time.
That is the possibilities of ‘Power Burst’ learning.
Recently, I asked you to fill out a survey and give me some feedback on exactly what topics, songs and techniques you want to learn via this blog.
The responses were great and there were way more than I had expected so thank you very much to everyone who filled out the survey. I have taken a few hours to dig deep and analyse the data and here are the results and the changes I’ll be making because of your input.
Many years ago a fellow and more experienced guitar teacher told me about this powerful concept.
The idea of teaching you to empower yourself is this: You learn the ability to understand and see exactly how to spot your own mistakes when learning and practicing the guitar.
These days most of my private students are adults. A few years ago there was a healthy split between teaching adults and children the guitar. This included the days in the week I used to teach children at a school.
These days, however, I am far too busy with Guitar Domination to teach in the school and only have a couple of students under the age of 18.
In fact, the majority of my private students are over the age of 40. And this is the way I like it.
I recently had a big debate over at Reddit with a fellow guitarist. This debate could have been infuriating but it actually was quite useful as it highlighted a certain flaw that experienced guitarists have when sharing their knowledge with less experienced players.
If you are learning to play guitar or you still consider yourself to be a beginner, you`ll find this post very handy – especially if you learn from others, either in person or online.
Have you ever gone to learn a song, looked at the chords, seen a b minor, then with a shriek and look of horror ran off and never looked at the song again?
Ok, that might be an exaggeration, but a lot of guitarists fear the B minor on guitar. Yes, it is a scary chord at first and a little difficult to play (but there are easier ways, as you’ll see below), but the b minor chord is so useful and is featured in so many classic songs.
