Here is another weekly 10-second tip.
Practise in front of a mirror
An underused technique in the guitar world is to practise in front of a trusty household mirror.
Doing so can help you see what your hands are doing clearly…
All without you having to lean over and give yourself a neck ache trying to check where your fingers are.
If you wear glasses and they make close up work hard, mirrors can help here too.
Getting the right mirror for the job can be a pain though.
If you don’t have one on the wall in your practice room, a mobile mirror on a stand can do.
Just make sure it is big enough so you can clearly see your fingers.
It is a simple tip but one that can help you on your journey.
Have a great Friday!
