WARMING-UPS

K3N

Warming-up with Thomas Offermann

every day from  9:00-10:00 am                                                      

Warming-up for guitarists? Of course, we stretch our body and warm up our muscles before jogging or playing football, before doing any kind of sport.  Good guitar playing requires the highest mental and physical precision, which is only possible through self perception.
The various little defects which can occur when not matching these standards lead to unnoticed compensations, e.g. pressing the fingers too hard on the fingerboard or twisting our body. Such apparent solutions may lead to unhealthy posture, wrongfully applied force on the instrument and a lack of perception for what we are doing; in the end it results in failure to unlock our potential.
Even a short warming-up for guitarists leads to more effortlessness when playing and to a more economical use of our practice time, it helps to avoid destructive compensations. It consists not only of finger exercises, but also of:
  • Perception training (basics in meditation),
  • simple gymnastics, 
  • training of self perception with the instrument. 
Required for the daily morning warm-up
  • casual clothing
  • Instrument, footstool or guitar rest,
  • open mind and good mood.
