Overview

The Right Hand Technique book is the only book available that gives a guitarist a pain-free method for developing excellent right hand technique and avoiding the pitfalls of improper position. The exercises and guide lines presented here are the result of research and application, and now appear in print for the first time.

We are very excited about Mr. Arnold's innovative instruction series. He is a well-respected pedagogue, and we believe that this series of books will help more students and professional musicians to perfect their technique through the use of an interactive "practice partner." We know of no other books to compare with them; they are truly a teaching method for the New Millennium!

What People are saying about this

B. Elliott
