The Human-Guitar Interface

Just something I found on the internet that I thought guitar players would be interested in

Do you find yourself fighting the guitar? Are you having trouble feeling comfortable when tackling certain kinds of material? Maybe what you need is a new approach to your instrument.

Great players not only have a musical vocabulary, they also have a physical vocabulary with their instrument. Instead of notes, scales and chords, we’re talking about fretting hand position, picking hand positions, strap-height, stance and how you hold your head, neck and shoulders. All of these things affect what you can do on the guitar.

In this lesson we’ll explore how our bodies interface with the guitar and how to adjust your approach for each situation. At the end of this lesson you’ll have a host of new approaches and techniques to apply to your playing.
