How to Hold The Guitar Properly – Lesson 2

In this lesson, we explain correct posture, the proper way to hold the guitar, as well as correct right and left hand placement.

 

Syn’s Tips

Starting at the very basics with proper technique will create a strong foundation that will support your playing instead of hindering it by using excess energy and muscle, decreasing mobility, dexterity, and even comfort.

Remember - EVERYTHING will seem wrong at first but I promise it will feel completely normal with perfect practice.

Kye Feher Ohhhhh man... Why does this feel so awkward? I have weird hands, large man palms, with short, fat fingers. And possibly terrible posture *shame face* All the things I think of while watching, I forget by the time I can get to my computer to post on here...
