** STRING BENDING **
Tuesday Tech Tip
Our Good Buddy Doug from Rocky Mountain Guitar Studio wanted to get my ideas on the breakdown of string bending.... So, here is Part 1 of (I think) 2. But I’m sure we could do even more!!
NOTE: If you’re not yet building hand strength by squeezing a soft stress ball in your left hand daily, then hopefully this video will inspire you to begin! See you next week to have more fun with it!!

** STRUMMING IMPROVES RIGHT HAND **

Not just any strumming - it’s “rasgueado” or flamenco-style strumming. No matter the style, if you use a pick or only fingers on the right hand, this technique tunes up multiple muscle-sets that help strengthen your right hand.

Very exciting, event-packed, kid-filled, guitar-filled weekend of strong efforts, new ideas and lots of smiles. Can you believe these little ones - aged five and really playing that guitar and his little brother in perfect posture with a tiny uke at age 3. Weekend Guitar Camp with Alarte. They are an inspiring, fun bunch to work with.

*** BETTER BARRE CHORDS ***
April 20, 2021 TECH TUESDAY!!
Who doesn’t want barre chords to be easier? Maybe we can’t make them easier - but we can make them better! (1)Don’t worry! They do get better w/time. (2)Line your finger up carefully to cover the whole fret wire. (3)Use arm weight by allowing the elbow to be loose and cause natural weight on that barre so you don’t press harder. (4)Put your mind on the notes that need the barre, other fingers are covering notes also.

**Connecting Chord
Progressions w/ Basses**
An easy first step to more interesting chording is to utilize bass notes. Here are two simple ideas: Play the roots of each chord. Next Step: Root-fifth of each. Make sure you’re practicing your scales as it helps finding those notes. And always remember to Have Some Fun With It!
