In one of your videos you say that the beginner has an advantageous position when compared to some intermediate students, can you explain me about that?
The advantage the beginner has is that he has not nurtured and/or acquired bad habits in advance (like wrong posture in his hands etc.).
The principle is: It’s better to have done nothing at all rather than having done it wrong for long time.
Other problem is that sometimes the so called intermediate players think they know something and they don’t… So how can you help them?
Sometimes is overwhelming for an intermediate guitar player just to confront psychologically with the fact that he has wasted a lot of time with the wrong technique or methods for learning.
In the following video I talk about obstacles or anchors as well as on the importance of an objective assessment of one’s level:
To move forward as a guitar player you have to “take away the anchor”. To identify what that anchor is you will need expert supervision. On the other hand, to correct the situation of an intermediate guitar player, very often, he has to re-start again (sometimes from the beginning) and this is the stage in which you can see beginners learning faster because they can just learn it properly from the very beginning.
