Intermediate and Advanced Guitar lessons
In my experience, these are the most common problems encountered by intermediate and advanced level players:
“I am stuck playing the same songs”
“I feel my technique is wrong”
”I am stuck playing pentatonic box-type scales”
“I feel I play the same licks”
“ I still cant grip barre chords”
..and I can relate because at one time or another I have experienced all of these problems myself, This is normal, and discussions with other professional guitarist has revealed that these are the most common barriers to overcome.
Luckily there are ways to overcome all of these obstacles in away that adds diversity and inspires new progess in all areas of playing.
Here are just some examples of what we will be covering.
