Folks are STOKED about Steve’s new Firestorm course (coming Tues, Nov 12). Here’s they’re saying about Steve Stine and his new Firestorm course…
Barry Maloney · Minneapolis, Minnesota
Great lesson! Not only the information about variety of strumming patterns but taking the pressure off of always hitting all the strings in a chord, which I have imposed on myself because no one ever made this point to me before.
Chandler Huffman · Springfield, Illinois
Amazing! Simple, understandable, instructive, enjoyable.
Kevin Hill · Sir Robert L Borden
Steve you made my day, I was stuck in a rut, ocean concept very natural,puts the fun back in to playing, have a great day.
Jim Sid Macmillan · UPEI
Right on Steve!! As a guitar teacher myself, I am quite sceptical about many versions of strumming and chords, blah, blah. I listened to this lesson and thought YES that is what I do when I play and don’t even think about it but to hear the concept presented as you did was really great stuff. All the best friend!!!
Well I am honored to be one of your old students ! lol !! But I take away alot of info from your video’s steve and I really appreciate it because now my strumming has greatly improved to where it does sound musical. thanks again!!
Dont miss this one!

There’s no doubt about it… playing guitar is a blast. There is nothing better then seeing — and hearing — yourself progress as you work through notes, and then chords, and then, finally, songs. There is, however, one unpleasant reality that comes with the territory for beginners, and that reality is hand and, more specifically, finger pain. While it’s virtually impossible to avoid all discomfort, there are several things you can do to get through it and get on with playing like a rock star.
First and foremost, you need to remember to warm up. Beginners expect the pain of calluses when they are learning, but often are surprised at the hand, and even arm pain that they experience in the first few months of playing. This is to be expected. Remember that there are a multitude of bones, tendons and muscles involved in moving your fingers around, so you’ll want to get them warmed up before you start shredding. There are a wealth of resources, like JamPlay, out there that feature great warm-ups for beginners.
Here is a great exercise from the JamPlay YouTube channel that will help to wake up those guitar-playing muscles and prepare them for the even the most rigorous practice session or performance. Read more
Next week Steve Stine is releasing his brand new course-
This course is a step-by-step blueprint for learning songs 200% faster. This is some of the most practical, instantly-useful training I’ve seen in a long time. It’s something that will save you hours-and-hours of practice time, headaches and frustration. And its taught by one of the biggest names in guitar education.\
As always, Steve and the good folks at GuitarZoom have released some free preview videos for you to check out the course.
The first video- Ocean Effect is a whopping 27 minute long lesson from Steve where he covers
- The Essential 10 chords every guitarist must know
- Pattern vs. Organic strumming
- The 2 most common strumming patterns found in 80-90% of all songs
- Why you must learn to “hear and replicate”
- Why it’s critical to find the beat of a song using string-scratching first
- A rookie mistake to avoid when starting your strum
- The crucial strumming technique needed to find your “groove”
- Strumming from the wrist vs. elbow
- The “Ocean Effect” — why it’s the fastest way to make your playing sound musical
If you’re like me, every once in a
while, you might get stuck in a
“guitar-rut.” (When playing guitar is
about as much fun as watching paint dry
or plucking your eyebrows. OUCH!)
When this happens there’s a surefire way
to break free — LEARN SOME NEW LICKS!
There is nothing more energizing than
firing up a jam track and noodling around with
new licks that you just learned.
Its a fantastic way to improve your improvisation
skills and just get lost in your guitar.
Two of my favorite course for not only learning new licks but learning how to apply them are both byeveryone’s favorite guitar teacher- Steve Stine.
Head on over to SteveStine.com to check out full details, free preview lessons and a mini course.
