My Friend Told Me To Get This Book!
Bought this on the recommendation of a friend who, like me, is a guitar lover. This book is easily the best PRACTICAL instruction manual I have ever had - Ms. Andreas clearly explains why so many players encounter problems with learning the guitar.
The problems have so much to do with the physical handling and holding of the instrument - and she gives clear simple instruction and advice in how to correct the issues.

The Real Foundations Of All Good Playing
How You Must Sit & Hold The Guitar For Practice
Your whole body must be relaxed when you practice. If you don't sit and hold the guitar the way I will teach you, your own body tension will prevent finger control.
Why You Must NOT Start Guitar At The 1st Fret!
The first fret is the hardest place to play because your arm is extended from the body to the maximum extent. This builds deadly tension into your arm and fingers, destroying finger control.
Only The Exercises You Really Need
You don't need a lot of fingers exercises, you need the right ones. You need the Foundation Exercises that will give your fingers a level of control you have never experienced before.
Exactly What To Do When You Practice
Practicing is not supposed to be "sitting there trying to do it, over and over".
Training fingers for precise movement is a science. I will teach you that science.
What you will learn from "The Principles"........
Dangers of Deadly Tension
How tension becomes "locked-in" to muscles when you practice without sufficient awareness of your own body.
How and why this tension makes you struggle to play - you just can't get your fingers to the strings!
As time goes by, it feels "normal". "The Principles" changes everything!
How you can cultivate "microscopic awareness", and how this awareness will allow you to practice with a new level of relaxation.
You will "un-lock" this tension from your fingers build an entirely new foundation of technique.
You will play better and more easily than you ever thought possible!
A New YOU As A Guitar Player!
Playing the guitar will become an entirely new experience! What seemed hard (because you were really fighting your own "locked-in" muscle tension) will now be, and feel, EASY!
If you already play, you will see yourself finally reaching new levels of guitar playing. You will realize that you can truly become as good on the guitar as you are willing to work for!
What's In "The Principles?
"Wax On, Wax Off"...Karate Kid
"The Principles" is composed of three elements.
1. 26 Foundation Exercises: These are specific routines that must be done to train your fingers for basic functioning on the strings. These exercises build technique (playing ability) in a step by step fashion, each step building on the previous one, and preparing for the next. These movements are the building blocks of all movements of the fingers on the guitar (wax on, wax off). You end up with professional level guitar fingers that play easily on the strings.
2. 34 Vital Concepts: These are things which you must understand in order to begin to practice effectively. If you don't know these things when you start guitar, you will get many bad fingers habits, and you will struggle.
Example: Sympathetic Tension - if you don't know that every time you use a finger other fingers tense up and become hard to use, you will get limited results from practice. "The Principles" shows you what to do about this fundamental fact of guitar life that you will never learn anywhere else!
3. 7 Practice Tools: You are going to learn specific practice approaches to be used to solve problems in playing. Instead of just "trying to play" the music you want to learn, you will learn how to take a piece of music and systematically teach your finger to play it perfectly!
All the uncertainty and confusion about learning and practicing guitar will disappear from your life!
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

Here are some FAQ that might interest you
Is "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar" good for beginners?
I've been playing guitar for years. What could "The Principles" do for me?
Are "The Principles" good for my style of music?
All styles of music are played with the same fingers! If you can't control your fingers (and many players can't), and if you don't know how to train your fingers ( and most players don't), you will have trouble playing any style of music.
No matter what style of music you play, you will learn faster and play better when you know how to use "The Principles" practice methods.
How do I know "The Principles" will work for me?
Because "The Principles" is scientific. It is based on the scientific laws of "motor control learning". It works for everyone who has fingers.
If you do the work, if you actually follow the directions I give you, if you practice faithfully - you will get the same amazing results that thousands of players around the world have gotten.
"The Principles", over 25 years, has gained a reputation as "The Holy Grail Of Guitar". There is a good reason for this. Get your copy and you will know why.
