Within 5 minutes, you could be discovering how simple philosophies
& practical tricks may advance your Guitar playing & maturity instantly...
SO YOU'D BE PRACTICING LESS & PLAYING BETTER!
A WORD OF HONESTY:
This may turn into a scam... but only if you don't apply this simple principles. Others benefited from it & so can you.
You and I may be alike.
I've been picking up the guitar for years now, but it has been a slow process.
I've dreamt of becoming a good guitarist - not just the bedroom type, but one that would amaze myself & others. But I always got distracted by life worries and go on for weeks without touching it.
Do you find any of these situations familiar?
- Uncertain feeling about your musical dream?
- Feeling of intimidation when advanced guitarists are around?
- Playing gets stuck in a rut?
- Motherload of unfinished guitar lessons that gets even dustier everyday
- Brain-Shut-Down with lessons that seem whacko-impossible?
- Fingers would just not cooperate?
- Agitated because others learn faster?
- Hopeless moments because of slow progress?
- Not a drop of motivation for practicing?
- Hard bouts with "procrastination" during guitar practice time?
- Hitting "the wall of discouragements?"
- A dream thrown away, afraid of even thinking about it?
- Feeling uncertain with playing music?
- Tired of running round the bush figuring what-to-practice-when?
- Too many materials; I don’t know where to begin?
- Still hiding from a music playing dream?
- "I tried to go for my musical dream but I failed" ?
- A never-ending cycle of 'I will go for it... but I'll start tomorrow' that you wish would stop?
I know how you feel.
I have once struggled with these challenges too.
Little did I know before, that the not-so-good handling of even one of these was already costing me a kick-load of effort, time, money & frustration.
But hat was before I stumbled upon better ways on how to turn them into candy-challenges, where victories are indeed sweet-tooth-sweet.
And since I learned these 'ideas' from others, I'd like to share it to you - so the challenges will have less power to take away from you:
- Getting involved with your music the way you’ve always wanted
- Less pain, MORE satisfying moments in your quest for improvement - Centered confidence in self that you can make it.
- Having huge leaps of progress in a breeze - Nail 'em guitar pieces or solos one after another.
- Not missing out on the "Zen of a Happy Musician"- Finally composing or playing a song for a love one.
And since we've been talking about challenges...
DID YOU EVER WONDER HOW THE BEST PLAYERS PULLED IT OFF?
Django Reinhardt,who badly burned his left hand during a caravan fire in 1928, depriving him of the use of the fourth and fifth fingers, still turned out to be one of the greatest jazz guitarist of all time?
How, even after losing a hand...
Bill Clements, a Michigan bass player who lost the lower part of his right arm in an industrial accident, managed to reinvent his playing by highly developing his left-hand tapping technique that brought out a style characterized by insistent, pounding bass lines that goes places technically and musically that would be daring for most bassists?
Why, even with a disabling condition...
Rick Renstrom, accomplished to zoom around the fret board with its 3 fingers --- while holding his pick with his right arm that’s just about half the size of a normal arm? Not only that, He has also managed to work with many respected professionals in the metal scene such as Rob Rock and Richard Christy. To date, Rick has recorded on 9 total albums and has collectively played to over 100,000 fans worldwide. Cool huh!
Ludwig van Beethoven,who started becoming deaf at around the age of 28, did not stop from playing, and still managed to get regarded by many as the greatest musician of all time?
Even Yngwie Malmsteen...
AREN'T THEY INSPIRING?
These musicians just boldly proved the famous saying,
"success is 80% psychology and 20% mechanics."
This may sound funny, but the plain truth is that, their physical experiences as musicians, are just a lot like mine and yours.
A look at the first time they ever touched their instrument...
Do you think they had fingers zooming on command like a wild spider, or as dead-on accurate as Robin Hood's arrow, or with hit songs
factory-pre-installed in their mind?
For the majority, our answers would be - no, no & no, right?
Which means we all started, more or less, equally...
BUT that would only apply to physical mechanics.
Let the musicians mentioned above, who were challenged by physical conditions, double prove it.
Just as they were challenged physically, you and me experience the same (Nasty bouts with hard-headed fingers anyone?).
TRUTH ABOUT WHAT MAKES
A GOOD GUITARIST, REVEALED...
The Secret of Psychology & Practical Tricks
EVEN BEFORE TECHNIQUES OR THEORIES...
I do not believe that a good guitarist started with lightning fast fingers, perfect pitch or computer like sight reading abilities. Regardless of genre or musical style, great guitar players posses qualities first that made them heroes.
- The first and probably most important quality you must have to be a good guitarist is powerful mind set. Being good at playing guitar it is not easy. You have to know yourself on a deeper level, and whatever style you are playing, you have to have a strong foundation emotionally and psychologically.
- Second, you have to discover the art of practice - the "how to's" of efficient and effective practice... and no, not everyone teaches this art and though discovering these on your own is possible, it may take a lot of time.
- Finally, you must have a burning desire. It may not start out big, but you have the choice to allow it to grow into a great flame. Remember, for fire to get stronger, it needs the help of the wind.
MY PERSONAL STORY
WITH A SONG, A DREAM WAS BORN
I was 16 and it was Christmas vacation when I went to my sister's place. It was a 5hr travel.
One day, while my cousin and I were hanging out, he decided to play a new CD of a band from Japan, Love Psychedelico. A track titled Last Smile played and out of nowhere, we just suddenly stopped talking 'til the song ended. We then faced each other with a rather puzzled and excited look. And the words just came out , “lets form a band.” Our words were deep and heavy.
I knew nothing about musical instrument at that time.
Christmas vacation ended and I went back to school. My cousin would go back to Japan and it would be long before we would see each other again.
A few weeks passed and as the school year was about to end, I was asked by my friend, Jen, if I wanted to go watch their band rehearse. I went with them, and even before their first song reached the end, I felt really excited.
I really felt like playing the guitar!
MY EAGERNESS AND HOW I STARTED LEARNING
I didn't have enough money to buy my own guitar at that time, so the immediate solution was to borrow one from a schoolmate. The next thing I needed was a song book with a chord chart so I went beyond stinginess and bought one.
My excitement got me through the headache going back and forth the chord chart, and the pinching pain from my fretting hand. Before I knew it, I was strumming my very first chords and I thought - "that was fun!"
At school, I often watched my friends play guitar, occasionally asking them guitar related question. There were times when I'd go to my elder cousin for lessons where I was taught my first ever complete song. But I was still a lazy beginner at that time.
TESTING THE WATER...
During my senior year, an announcement came that our school was hosting a "high school night" in 2 weeks time and a battle of the bands would be part of that event. I thought that it would be cool if I'd be able to join the battle - except... I didn't have a band.
I asked Jen if her band would be joining but she told me that her band won't be playing because their guitarist would be playing drums for another band.
The day of the event came. It was about lunch time when I received a text message from Jen asking me if I could play for her and 2 other friends.
My new band then only had a few hours. We agreed to play 2 songs, one of which I have never heard before. Luckily, Master Jen was there to teach me the lines of the song. 1 & ½ hours of rehearsal passed and it was time to get ready for the event.
Evening came. We were to play 2nd to the last.
The crowd favorite, the band of Jen's guitarist, did great. Before I knew it, it was our turn to play. I don’t know if it was excitement or what, but I knew my heart was beating crazy and my fingers were getting cold and clammy backstage. I felt like my energy was being sucked by the ground. It would be my first time to actually perform on stage.
The moment to come up on stage came, and we started to play. And there I was, slowly regaining my nerves and started enjoying the moment as soon as the first note sounded.
I had so much fun that I forgot about the contest. I was shocked when we were announced “champion” that night. It still remains one of the most memorable gig of my life.
START OF THE PROBLEM
I still enjoyed playing music.
But things did not turn out so well after high school. I had to study nursing during college and extra curricular activities had no space. I thought that this was the fastest way to get a job and eventually help send 2 younger siblings to school & contribute to the family.
I was told that only a few can make a living out of music, and I don't belong to that type. My mind was so closed that I thought there was no other way. Though I knew deep inside that music was what I wanted, I just had to treat guitar playing as a hobby.
I WASN'T EMOTIONALLY & PSYCHOLOGICALLY READY TO FACE WHAT I WANTED
I made myself believe that my music dream is not for and impossible for me, and that became my strong excuse. I had shut my dream out.
And for four years in college, I only afforded to play occasionally. I made myself believe the excuse that there was so much happening in college that playing can't be a regular thing for me; that I had no time to practice and discover ideas about music.
MY DREAM WAS TURNING INTO SAND
Practicing became harder and harder for me. I could not focus every time I try to expand on my musical concepts.
I've buried my dreams so deep that all I had was the excuses that "I won't make it anyway."
I was stuck in a big rut and at the brink of totally giving up.
I graduated from my course eventually passed the licensure exam. I was about to practice my profession but...
ONE THING HAPPENED THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF MY MUSIC LIFE.
After 5 years, my cousin and I met again. We reminisced the story of how we first heard the song Last Smile and how a dream was born from there.
Once again, I was reminded of the excitement that I felt at that time.
I knew things don’t change overnight, so I took advantage of the small flame that was reignited in me. That was the time I told myself, "I deserve a shot.”
I started researching about human potential, learning, motivation, lives of guitar heroes, guitar & music concepts. I dived into these materials for about 2 years, taking notes and compiling ideas that I could use every now and then. I'm an expert on each material but the bits and pieces of concepts have helped me a lot.

22 And a butt-load of music & guitar books, software, videos & instructional materials
I couldn't believe what I discovered from the first material I ran into. I was initially a skeptic, but as soon as I tried one principle, I was awe-struck.
The bits and pieces of those practical psychology helped me advance more in 5 months than my previous 5 years.
From then, my dream was saved.
- With the help of my band, I was able to become a guitar teacher, play in one of the longest gig in Asia, play live on television & FM radio, experienced recording and got a song played on air, and with music, I'm able to satisfy a part of my soul.
I discovered that we can all be heroes in our own right. With the secrets of our heroes, you can achieve more. Everything starts with mind-set and desire.
"Without a doubt, this is the most important step you can take if you want to improve your guitar playing."
I've had my share of struggles and pain, and every time I see someone go through the same tormenting experience, I couldn't help but wish that they too could get a second chance - a spark to ignite their flame again.
I began to collect my notes and started to make a manual to share to others the concepts that helped me. This is what came out of 2yrs of work.
