10- minute wonder
A new tuition book- plus- CD package from regular Guitar Techniques tutor Phil Capone, entitled Play Better Guitar In 10 Minutes A Day, aims to offer a thorough answer to the most common questions asked by students of the guitar: namely, how often should I practise, and what should I work on?
The book begins with 63 separate exercises that cover the basics of technique ( including a multitude of useful examples across both rhythm and lead styles), with audio examples on the accompanying CD. From here, it moves on to a series of tailored practice sessions made up of short exercises that add up to individual 10- minute ‘ workouts’. Organise your practice sessions around these workouts, the theory goes, and you should begin to notice real improvements in your playing in a matter of weeks. The book also has full scale and chord dictionaries, too; see www. apple- press. com for more info.
