  • Wellcome to my 20 Beginners Tips lesson!

    This is an ellaborate lesson with examples and detailed explanations, on how to improve your overall playing as a beginner. Come and see what do professionals do, to sound like they do. Being a professional player doesn't mean you are able to play with the speed of the light. Let me make you familiar with essential things that professionals always take care of.
