Welcome to the very first SABR lesson from me, Dan Thorpe of Guitar Domination.

`SABR` is an acronym and is short for `Small Adjustments, Big Results`.

During my 1000`s of hours of teaching guitar, I have found that there are many little things that make a massive difference, and that is what these SABR lessons are all about....

…teaching you how to make a small tweak to your playing but achieve a big result with it.

Some things take a lot of effort for few results and that is fine as that is the nature of learning. Some things however, only need little fixes or little adjustments for massive results.

This SABR series of lessons is all about my years of learning what only needs Small Adjustments for Big Results. (See what I did there?)



Whether you are a fingerstyle guitarist, strumming aficionado, a beginner or intermediate you will find that you make some of these mistakes or could benefit from these lessons, so subscribe if you enjoy!

This, the very first SABR lesson is all about that pesky scratchy sound many guitarists have when fingerpicking. Fingerstyle guitar is simply awesome but unless done correctly leads to little errors like that make everything sound baaaad. The great news is, to fix it is very simple!
