Here’s another Quick Practice Tip – This one is from my good friend, Steve Eulberg. Check out Steve’s Beginning Guitar Lesson Series at: http://www.mytalentforge.com/series/guitar-for-absolute-beginners/
Hi friends! This is Steve Eulberg from My Talent Forge with a Quick Tip for you!
When you are playing your guitar, you want to have good tone, and that means making sure your finger is placed as close behind the fret as possible while you play whatever it is you’re playing.
Whether you’re playing chords, or you’re playing individual notes- have your finger right behind the fret.
You can feel the fret, but you’re not sitting on top of it, and you’re not too far away. It’s a good habit to aim for. You have all this space, but don’t use that space, and be as far away as possible.
And you’ll have to press less hard, which will be easier for you to play. I’ve found that the harder I push, the less accurate I play.
If I can relax and put less energy into the pushing of making the note by just having my hand in the right position. It helps all of my playing.
So go forth and try it!
