In this podcast, I discuss one of the hidden killers of guitar playing progress and why it is so important you spend some time focusing on getting it right.
Many guitarists pay zero attention to their breathing when playing and this has some negative ramifications on their playing in both the short and long term.
Proper, relaxed diaphragmatic breathing can help you stay focused and relax into your playing, keeping your fingers and hands (and the rest of your body) relaxed during those frustrating times, which is key to your success.
This means the muscles of the fingers, hands and arms are free of tension – and tension is the bane of most frustrated guitarists playing.
In the podcast, I take you through all the benefits of proper breathing while you play and give you a super simple exercise that will help.
Try it, you’ll make more improvements and enjoy your playing more than ever!
