Learning how to answer your own questions, and learning the right questions
to ask, makes learning anything easier – and with guitar playing it’s no different.
This part of the lessons is something I add in to help you embrace your own ways
of thinking and problem solving – to get to the heart of your own creative solutions.
By doing so, you can learn to write songs that really mean something to you.
This is supported by developing your songwriting skills, practising creating ideas
until you find ones you love, then working on the multiple ways you can develop
those ideas. I show students how they can twist, pull, stretch, squeeze and
manipulate any idea to become whatever they fancy – it just takes a little creativity,
and the way I inspire you is by showing you how I manipulate ideas first hand.
This all comes down to connecting with music that moves you, and using it
to create music that moves others. Once you learn to make music that moves
you, this is when you really fall in love with the guitar, and is where your
playing really does go to the next level… and beyond.
