If you want to master the sound of Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, or countless other legends, you’ll need to re-learn how to hold the guitar. Traditional methods teach a thumb-behind approach. There’s nothing wrong with this approach….unless you want to do it the way most blues and rock legends did.
The Grip is a 2 hour lesson that breaks down the mechanics of playing chords and soloing using the thumb-over grip. Using an E-Form bar chord as a template, you’ll learn the physics of The Grip, what makes it work, and exercises that will stretch your endurance and physical strength to new levels.
