Here is another Friday 10-second tip for you to enjoy…




There is a lot of research showing that learning using different mediums is more powerful than just one.

For us guitarists, this means video, text, TAB (or notation), and audio are all powerful.

Learning via more than one of the above is what I call “stacking” and the more of it you do, the more the key information is likely to get stored in your brain.


To me, it’s like training a muscle in a gym.

Just using one machine is okay, but adding in some free weights, kettlebells, and bodyweight exercises will be that much more powerful.


The brain is like that too – when learning anything on guitar, train it in multiple ways by “stacking” video, text, audio, TAB, etc.

We all have our favourite way of learning, but remember, challenging your brain to learn in different ways is effective and good for the brain too.


Enjoy your Friday!

Guitar Domination


P.S. Until Sunday night at midnight, my new course is on sale with a $100 discount. It is a video-based course, but you get the TAB/notation for every note inside.

You can download these PDFs and use them alongside the videos as you watch them, or even print them off and place them on your music stand while you watch the videos. That is just one simple way you can use “stacking” in your playing.

Here is the link to find out more about the course.
