A lot of teachers will try to keep your business by giving you quick fixes or showing you songs and riffs before they show you how to hold the instrument so you can actually play. Many students come to me after they “hit a wall” – they feel like they aren’t getting better, their hands or wrists hurt, their technique has stopped improving, or they don’t know how to find their way around the fingerboard.

Most often, I find this is because they are missing some of the most fundamental pieces of the puzzle, and this usually begins and ends with something we often overlook when we sit down to play: our hands!

This 5-part series, produced exclusively for Guitar World’s Acoustic Nation, takes a detailed look at your fingers, thumbs, and wrists to examine what you might think they are doing versus what they are actually doing. Learn how to work with them effectively so those hours of practice will actually pay off.
