Enlightening videos on guitar technique

Post by wil weten » Sat Jun 29, 2019 6:00 pm

I'd like to see a thread with enlightening videos on guitar technique. As I couldn't find such a thread, I thought it might be nice just to start one.

Recently, I discovered Jack Sanders - Scales as Basis for Technique - Part 1 - 3, as well as a video of his on guitar relaxation techniques.






I do hope you'll all share your favourite links to videos on guitar technique so that we can study the different approaches.

Nice videos. I like the idea of using the weight of the left arm and bicep. It seems to help relax the left hand fingers . Never came across it before
Thanks 🙂

I just found Dmitri Nilov's thread on his videos with tips for guitarists. Have a look at:

I do not wish to sound deconstructive. These videos may be useful and helpful but need to be handled with caution. The reason is not that they are of poor quality or contain bad advice or whatever, rather they cannot address the individual player's needs. At the end of the day only a good teacher can diagnose a problem in technique development and offer solutions. Videos like these can potentially hinder rather than foster progress. Again nothing against these particular videos.
