    im self taught and have been playing with my thumb hanging out above the neck forever so im kinda stuck like that now… except for barre chords. It just feels really akward to have it low it makes me bend my wrist more too like that.

    sir u r telling to keep thumb straight but u r keeping like this👍 so u can place your 1st finger straight 🤔😯😥please solve my confusion

    This is the most important aspect of technique. Biggest mistake most guitarists make. This is almost exactly the way I teach it (pat myself on the back).

    Great lesson. I just started 1 week ago at the age of 60. I am trying to teach myself nylon string. Can you tell me when my strings will stop stretching? Every time I play I have to stop and tune again at least twice. Thanks and Best Wishes

    I'd think that thumb placement would lead to nicely to carpal tunnel

    The problem I think I have right now is whenever I try to put my wrist as flat as you guys do, my elbow is already facing inwards. Or is it just me?

    As a self-taught (still in the process) guitarist in the initial stages, I would say this is a must-see lesson for EVERY budding guitarist who's learning by themselves. Incorporate every single part of the technique emphasized in the tutorial and you are well set to have good technique on the fingering hand.
    The natural (and intuitive) way till be to play with the flat part of the finger and griping the neck with the palm. That way you'll hit a ceiling quickly.
    Very nice lesson and thank you! 🙂

    This is possibly the best guitar lesson I've found on the web, I've been struggling a lot with finger placement, this video completely solved that 🙂 Going to buy some courses on your website!
