Review

"I have yet to find a book that so completely addresses the wide range of issues in music performance. I was expecting another one of those rehashed guitar technique publications with lots of exercises and scales, but instead found a beautiful and inspired work that gives an insight into a mind that has explored every aspect of performing on an instrument. It covers just about every area that every professional musician thinks about - from the use of macro muscles and posture, to performance anxiety, to the spiritual and deeper aspects of a performance. It is a book for all guitar players. - from Dev Gopalasamy

"This is a great resource for all guitarists! It really covers it all, from the technical such as scales, chords, to the more esoteric, such as the mind body connection of guitar playing." - from Philip Hii, author of "The Art of Virtuosity"

"This is truly an innovative and intelligent mind-body method for playing the guitar, using some of the finest products of the human mind to create a unique creative synthesis. Highly recommended for aspiring guitarists or Alexander Teachers who want an insight into the workings of guitar playing." - from Martin Finnegan, Alexander Technique teacher.

"Your approach is just what the field needs." - from Michael Chapdelaine.

"I found your tutor a big read with many stimulating ideas many of which I can empathise with. The kineasthetic and proprioceptive senses are not usually mentioned in tutors. Most tutors don't address performance anxiety and many performers do Alexander technique. I enjoyed the comprehensive nature of your tutor. It is useful as a prop for my own teaching." - from Eric Hill

Format: Kindle Edition
I haven’t played the guitar for quite a while. I just got fed up with my lack of dexterity and how difficult it was for my small hand to wrap around the neck of the guitar. I tried piano after that but with similar luck. However, after reading Peter’s book I really want to pick up an instrument once again.
The book covers everything necessary to make the foray into playing the guitar a lot less daunting than other books I’ve read on the subject. The information is laid out sequentially, with exercises that involve the whole body and not just learning notes and fingerings. It is written in a very clear style, with lots of images and metaphors that make the information come alive.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone thinking about taking up an instrument. Although the information is guitar-specific, the principles Peter talks about are universal and can easily be translated to other musical endeavours.

This book features detailed explanations, helpful illustrations, ample examples, and an emphasis on using the whole body to achieve fluid, comfortable and musical results. It's one of the most helpful guides to guitar playing I have ever worked with, and I recommend it strongly.
