An Alexander Technique Approach to Classical Guitar Technique
This ebook uses the Alexander Technique principles of good posture and great technique to assist the guitarist. This ebook is also based on the guitar technique of John Williams and Carlos Bonell, who I studied with in London at the Royal College of Music. It is the intention of this ebook to help the guitarist find a personal technique and posture on the instrument that allows you to find the most mechanically advantageous way to play the guitar. This ebook is filled with concepts that will help you explore what you’ve been doing technically, psychologically, and posturally on the guitar, and to assist you in finding a way to play your instrument, so that the guitar is easier to play and kinder to the body.
