Today we're going to work on proper posture and hand positions when playing guitar (lefties--don't forget that when I say "right," that means left for you, and vice versa). Sometimes a simple adjustment to your body helps break through barriers that may be preventing you from getting the sound you desire. We are all shaped a little differently, so make small adjustments that help you physically relax and feel comfortable. Pay special attention to forming good habits right from day one. Only then can you be sure to please your ear with your talent! Additionally, I'll show you how to easily tune your guitar. You should begin each day's lesson by setting up your posture and hand positions, and then getting in tune. I'll also talk a little about song keys. Remember that the goal of this course is to quickly enable you to play guitar and sing along on your own or with your friends. Playing along with your favorite recordings might be difficult at first, but that will surely change as you become more proficient.
