Top Tips  that’ll keep you tip top

  • Try to leave your guitar out on stand so you see it each day and when you pass you may just pick it up… it all counts towards your goal you know!
  • Keep good posture when guitar in hands…back straight, good supportive chair with no side rests.
  • Quick warm up exercise for fingers helps
  • Always check the tuning of guitar before playing
  • Consider pick type you use… I prefer a thinner more flexible pick for rhythm playing as it flows across strings nicely… but a thicker version to attack strings for single note playing.
  • Keep left hand nails short to help with fretting strings. And if your are a Classical player longer on the right hand

STUDENT FEEDBACK…

  • Pete’s a great teacher, always very fair and honest. His website really reflects his personality and he always makes sure that the your’e happy with the lessons, if you are not happy with something then talk to Pete and he can fix it!  I’ve played for 15 years and had several tutors, I’ve always struggled with timing, but Pete took me back to basics and helped me get things tight. He’s completely changed my approach to playing, I recommend him highly!!!

  • As a complete novice, I found Pete’s tuition easy to understand. Pete, himself, is very patient and his studio has a calm & pleasant atmosphere and his teaching relaxes you so that we also enjoy a laugh or two along the way.  In finding out which type of music I liked he was quick to adapt this to the song/s that I would be interested in learning to play, to keep my enthusiasm going whilst learning the guitar. Now I am progressing and am able to hear the beginnings of what sounds like the song I chose which is very satisfying for me.
