Using the ideas in the video helps you become an advanced guitar player and play exactly how you want.

As you learned in the video, there is one thing that is important for playing guitar efficiently in your fretting hand:

The position of your thumb.

Whenever you are having issues in your fretting hand that create mistakes, your thumb is probably a huge factor.

For instance:

If you are not able to stretch to play specific notes, this is likely caused by your thumb.

Solve this by keeping your thumb positioned behind the neck of the guitar. Specifically: lined up behind the middle finger and pointing directly up. Once you do this, you'll find that stretching for notes is infinitely easier.

Note that sometimes it is actually better to keep your thumb over the top of the neck rather than behind it.

For example:

- while bending strings and applying vibrato to notes

- while you are playing frets higher up on the fretboard (above the 12th fret or so)

If you have issues with making too many mistakes while shifting positions, your thumb may also be part of the problem.


Keep your thumb behind the middle finger as you are shifting positions. 

If you are having a difficult time with fretting hand finger independence, the thumb plays a pivotal role as well.

If you keep your thumb behind the index finger, it becomes more likely that your fingers will lift off the fretboard.

But when you bring it behind the middle finger, the fingers stay closer to the strings. 
Now that you understand the importance of your thumb position for fretting hand technique, let's develop the rest of your guitar playing to take your skills to another level.

If you want, I can show you exactly how to reach your musical goals with online guitar lessons.

Here is what taking lessons with me is like: 

You help me understand your background as a musician, what you excel at, what you struggle with, how previous guitar lessons have gone for you and what you want to achieve on guitar.

Then, it's my turn to go to work for you. I create a guitar lesson plan for you by carefully reading through your evaluation form. 

I don't teach generic guitar lessons. Everything I give you is personalized to meet your specific needs.

You're going to develop advanced guitar techniques, expand your knowledge of music, play pro-level leads and massively raise your overall level of musicianship. This way you don't just become a better guitarist, you become a complete musician. I'll guide you down the right path, so you make consistent progress and get better each lesson.

In fact, I’ll probably hear you and watch you play much more than the average guitar teacher.

The average guitar teacher might only see you once per week. After that, you have to figure things out on your own at home.

This common situation leads to the formation of poor playing habits that may take a very long time to change.

When you take guitar lessons with me, I invest a lot of time into helping you get better in between lessons.

This is how it works: 

  • You have the option to show me where your guitar playing is at daily if you want to. How? By posting a video recording on my private student forum.
  • You can also send recordings to me separately to get very detailed feedback. 
  • During weekly Office Hours you can directly ask me any questions you have about your guitar playing over Zoom. You show me what you are working on and I give you advice on how to get better.
  • There are also weekly video training classes where I can see you play guitar and give you personal help.
  • Sometimes, I'll ask you to send me additional recordings of your guitar playing. This gives me another way to adjust your lesson plan to suit your needs for whatever challenges come up along the way.

All you have to do is invest half of an hour into your guitar practice each day and practice what I tell you to. Do this, and you will be amazed at how fast your guitar playing begins to transform into something truly awesome to behold.
