Art Guitar Strap

Playing the guitar is a great way to keep your ears sharp and to step into the world of performing arts. By playing and making some guitar improvement, you can enrich your life for the better or even open up some new career possibilities.

After a while, you might begin to notice that your skills and technique are not advancing at the rate that they once were. Well, for guitarists who are in a slump, here are some effective ways to improve on your guitar technique.

1. Tighten Your Guitar Strap. As simple as this sounds, by tightening your guitar strap you can really make an impact on your guitar skills. You might be straining your wrist and fingers attempting to play on a guitar that's hanging too low. An easy solution is to just raise the guitar a bit higher.

2. Keep your thumb behind the neck. A lot of beginners make the mistake of letting their thumb rest on top of the fret board when making certain chords. Show some guitar improvement and keep your thumb in the middle of the back of the guitar neck.

3. Sit up or stand up. Having good posture when you're playing will not only improve your technique, but add to the visual aspect of your performance. A crowd is more likely to respond positively to a guitarist that stands with his head up as opposed to sitting, slouching, and staring at their fingers.

4. Try to keep your hand perpendicular to the guitar neck. Sometimes it feels comfortable to let the balls of your palm rest a little on the bottom of the guitar neck when you play certain licks, but it's not the best technique for every guitar riff and chord. Try to keep your hand stationed as perpendicular to the guitar neck to improve the lightness of your fingers on the fret board.

5. Do some stretches before you begin. With almost any sort of physical activity, even just involving your hands, a few stretches beforehand can do you good. Gently pull back your fingers and your wrists and hold them in place for a few seconds until you feel the stretch.

After learning the basic techniques to perform on the guitar, improving can be a little difficult. Try your best to keep pushing forward in your guitar journey and you should have no problem advancing your skills.
