It’s Time to Make Your Guitar Practice Professional
- Want the perfect start to any practice session?
- Looking for a safe and effective way to practice without injury?
- Feel like you’re not making the most of your practice time?
Ask any professional sportsperson what they do before they train and the answer is always the same: warm up! That’s true whether you’re heading to the gym or getting on stage, but especially when practicing guitar.
While everyone knows that cold workouts lead to injuries, guitarists often don’t take warmups seriously… which is a wasted opportunity when you realise that warmups can be multitasked to improve your coordination and fretboard knowledge.
The greatest guitarists always get double the benefit from their limited practice time and now, guitar virtuoso Chris Books is here with Guitar Practice Warmup Routines to show you how to warm up safely while getting the most out of your practice time… and reducing your risk of injury.
Meaningful Guitar Warmups That Improve Your Skills and Reduce Risk of Injury
Guitar Practice Warmup Routines teaches you the best skills to work on in your warmups in a safe, musical way – the ultimate rule being that your warmup should never be more difficult than your workload.
The focus is on warming up the brain and body safely while developing complementary skills to enhance your main guitar practice routine.
In this ground-breaking guitar warmup book, you’ll focus on the following essentials to make you a better guitarist in double time…
- Picking hand
- Linear fretting hand coordination
- Chromatic displacement picking
- Major and minor scales
- Fretting hand stretches
- Wacky drills
Over 90 Meaningful Warmup Exercises That Go Beyond Ordinary
We’ve all seen those boring 1 2 3 4 warmup exercises on YouTube, and the truth is they don’t achieve much and are certainly not musically meaningful. In Guitar Practice Warmup Routines Chris Brooks packs in over 90 fun, developmental musical warmups that get you ready for perfect practice.
Each is taught in clear notation and TAB, along with a detailed description of how to play it and why it helps you. From Chris:
“Developing players will find this material a great source of mechanical and musical foundations, to put them in good stead for further studies. Experienced players can jump into any routine and get game-ready for the day’s work. Each routine in the book is dedicated to an objective: prime the picking hand, stretch the fretting hand, run through scales methodically, or test yourself with some wacky finger and brain twisters.”
“Many of the drills are ones I created for my own practice, and a few might resemble traditional exercises taught by guitar teachers for generations. In either case, there’s a point to each drill, which I’ll highlight as we go.”
There’s the option to follow Chris’ curated routines or to create your own from the exercises that most benefit your level and progression.
Includes Audio and Video
You can always expect a little bit extra from a Chris Brooks book, so along with the free audio download of every single exercise, Chris has included detailed videos of him playing every single routine in the book… so you’ll hear and see how to warmup in style!
