These teaching sessions generally happen every alternative day, so we are taking day gap for practice.


Day 1:
  • Play each column shown in Top 4 Frets marked with Chords Image. This is to help to your fingers stretch.
  • Tip1: Set thumb position in a fixed location.
  • Tip2: Play gently. Please don’t need to hit chords with all your strength, I know you are strong.
