Do fingertip push ups to strengthen your hands and wrists. Long used as strengthening exercises for Karate skills, you'll find that doing this will improve your finger, hand and wrist strength and dexterity, which will improve your songs and your ability to succeed at challenging skills like barre chords ~ bonus...you'll have the best looking arms in town!

Hey all. Why don't Seagull make a Spruce/Rosewood Folk style model? I know that Godin have a Simon & Patrick Showcase model, but this has the 1.72 nut width. Wouldn't it be great to see a wide-nut rosewood folk model in the Artist or SWS range, preferably with no cut-away like the mahogany SWS folk. I reckon that would be a killer guitar. What do others think?

Go for a walk to improve your guitar playing. Sometimes we get a little wound up from our day or feel challenged with our latest guitar skills which can increase unwanted finger tension and slow our progress, so the solution is simple...just walk it off!

Set aside my guitars for awhile to concentrate on learning bagpipes. Learned some tunes on the pipes, now I want to play them on my guitar.

I think one of my laments over the years is "I never have enough time to play my guitar!". Between family obligations, and work, time just seems to fly. Lately, though, I've been following some advice picked up from the little book, "Zen Guitar" by Philip Toshio Sudo. The information presented in "Zen Guitar" is probably more suited to someone with some experience playing guitar rather than…Continue
These are seriously cool!

Do pinky exercises to get that little finger into shape! Our pinky is the weakest finger and yet it really needs to be included in our playing, so instead of avoiding using it...do some exercises to help strengthen it and gain more dexterity ~ before you know it your pinky will be playing just like your other fingers!
BTW...Go to our Facebook page for a pinky exercise that you can try!

Try to figure out how to play a song before seeing the music. When you find a song you'd like play, it's a cool challenge to figure out how to play the chords/notes/strumming/picking before searching for the song on the internet or in books ~ you'll feel like a rock star!

At some point during this past winter, I thought it would be interesting to see if I could come up with a bunch of songs that I could play on my own, without the need of a backing band. I had always wanted to try my luck at busking, but because of the demands of Poligraf, I…Continue

Go on a field trip to your local guitar store. Doesn't matter if you're in the market for a new guitar or not, it's a good opportunity to try out the various guitar brands and body styles and be sure to try the high end models too ~ it's a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours!

Well this is a first for me. I have never before offered any of my cover songs audio for streaming or download (outside of YouTube where they are covered by YouTube agreement with publishers).
But I went and jumped through the hoops nd had to buy two licenses, one for streaming and one to enable downloads. The original artists have been pre-paid. So it will be interesting to see if there is any interest in releases like this. Kept it down to 4 selected songs because it's…

Play your guitar to help you relieve stress in your life. When you play your guitar you're actually setting aside those pesky challenges and stimulating the parts of your brain which involve expectations, rewards, sequencing and emotions (to name a few) ~ so go ahead...play your guitar, it will change your mind!

I was recently introduced to the music of Lucy Kitt by my friend, and Radio Caroline Disc Jockey, Peter Antony.
Peter sent me a message telling me I had to hear this artist and that he was considering playing her songs on his show even though she had no real official release beyond some EPs. Well I listened and yes she is that good. Very real and you certainly can hear the Neil Young influence and feel a Joni Mitchell vibe too.
Lucy Kitt hails from the South East of England and…Continue
