Want to know the secret to great guitar playing? It all starts with strong technique and a good set of warm-ups.

You’ve started learning a song you love. You’ve practiced and practiced, but for some reason it’s not sounding like you want it to. Sound familiar? If so, the problem isn’t a lack of talent or dedication; it’s the fact that your fingers aren’t doing what you’re telling them to. The best way to overcome that problem is with a strong set of warm-up exercises. Once you can control every movement, you can go beyond playing the so-called right notes and instead start playing what you feel.

Improve your dexterity, finger strength, and timing

Finger strength and dexterity is something that develops naturally over time, but having a great set of warm-up exercises can get your fingers in shape much more quickly. Technique Master has everything you need to get you started adding meaningful warm-ups to your practice routine.

Triola has used that experience to create a focused technique building book series that gives you plenty to practice without making you feel overwhelmed or intimidated. And in the end, you’ll be a better musician for it.
