Course Contents

This course will focus on 3 main areas essential to good guitar playing, and for insuring continuous  progress on guitar.

1) PRACTICE APPROACH..... Jamie will show you exactly how you need to practice each time you sit down with your guitar, so that your fingers learn the necessary skills for easy, relaxed playing. 

2) LEFT HAND DEVELOPMENT.... Jamie will guide you in the all-important first stages of proper left hand development. The complete series of left hand training exercises will be covered, including mastering the 3 vital fingers combinations 1-4,1-3 and 1-2 across all strings. Each student will be given guidance to achieve finger curvature and finger separation, the 2 essential left hand skills.  

-Beginners will get a tremendous advantage in the early stages of playing that will guarantee that no obstacles will cause playing problems as they continue to learn guitar. 

-Players who have been playing guitar for any length of time, months to years, will learn how to undo the bad left hand habits they have acquired, and begin to see their playing obstacles disappear.

3) Right Hand Development.... Jamie will explain the fundamental mechanics of both right hand styles on guitar: how to develop strong picking, and how to properly train the fingers for perfect control in fingerstyle playing.

Each student will be shown the necessary exercises to practice, and how to practice them so that a free and powerful right hand is achieved.

I Found My Inspiration Again!

I have struggled for years trying to learn left hand placement, and the mechanics of the various chord changes, but alone this is nearly impossible.

Everything Jamie describes is what I am experiencing, from having a bad teacher to trying to teach myself. I watched videos of teachers saying "Watch me play it, now you do it." They never tell you the real mechanics of how the fingers must work. This is what is missing from everyone else’s lessons. I think I just found my inspiration again!

I Discovered Success in My Playing and Practicing.With The Principles

I took a few group lessons. I started feeling that I was attempting to play way beyond my ability. The number of complicated techniques boggled my mind and frustrated my fingers. My right shoulder kept aching so much that I would have to stop playing and rub it.

The Principles explained many things about playing guitar that I had not noticed or knew to be on the lookout for. I have looked at many guitar instruction books, and this is the only one that really addresses where to be within your body in order to become a musician.

That rushing, frenzied, frustrated feeling in practice is gone now. Also, I was in pain before and I am not anymore. The "Principles" have helped me redefine and rediscover success in my playing and practicing."

Jamie Andreas Interviewed in Guitar Zero

In 2012 Jamie Andreas was interviewed by Dr. Gary Marcus for his upcoming book on the science of how people learn guitar. Also interviewed were jazz legend Pat Martino and Tom Morello from "Rage Against The Machine".

"A teacher who impressed me immensely, and who takes a very different approach, was Jamie Andreas. Jamie is one of the few teachers who seems interested in the relationship between muscle and brain, and how to use one’s body efficiently. Swim coaches and golf teachers consider such questions all the time, but it’s decidedly rare in the field of music instruction.

After 5 Years, I Know This System Works!

The mind is a powerful practice tool, but first, the mind needs to have the right information. This information is found in “The Principles Of Correct Practice for Guitar” and other publications by Jamie Andreas. I’ve been using them for over five years now and know that this system works. Thank-you, Jamie!

A HUGE Milestone!

Jamie, I just want to say Thank You for your practice method and teaching guidance!

We had new friends over last night. They saw my guitars and asked if I played. I played and sang House of the Rising Sun on my electric and Fast Car on my acoustic. I am thrilled to say that I had no problem playing and singing both songs and although I had a few butterflies, when I placed my first hand position the slow practice and continuous contact with the guitar paid off and I was calm and relaxed throughout the rest of the song.

Considering a few months ago I struggled with simple 3 chord strumming songs, to play flat-pick and finger style confidently for others is a huge milestone!

"I Can Do This!"

Thank you. Just started "The Principles". It's changing everything for me, and increasing my happiness because I now have confidence I can do this!

Norvell Burton Guitar Player

Thanks Jamie, you rock. When I first started playing I thought you were to technical I don't see anyone else explaining things like you do. So I wouldn't follow your suggestions, then after struggling and struggling I started watching your videos again. I guess I'm hard headed.
