I have a new article on caring for the hands, (strength, coordination and flexibility exercies). I'd like some to review and let me know what they think. The first 5 to respond will get the article.

Thanks!

Scott

My hands aren't getting any younger. I'd like to see what you've got so far.

Scott first demo'ed these hand stretches and exercises at the 1st CGI. Since then I've incorporated them in my routine. These are excellent exercises and are great for maintaining healthy hands.

This article organizes the exercises into a progressive routine that allows newbies to ease into them with a low risk of injury or accident. The instructions are well-laid out and the accompanying videos are sharp, clear and to the point.

Thanks for making this available, Maestro!

This instructional article is outstanding. It is very well done and comprehensive. The exercises are demonstrated beautifully and the practice log for the exercises is precise and carefully set up to ensure prevention of injury. Over the years, I have listened to Scott lecture on these exercises but it was hard for me to remember how to do them without a visual to refer to. Now we have it!

Scott, thanks so much for all you do for us guitarlings!

Scott, this is a very well done resource. The videos make all the difference because I was having trouble figuring out how to do what you were describing in the text. But the videos left no doubt of exactly what and how to do the exercises. And these videos are better for that than pictures would have been. The practice log also makes a big difference.

It could use some minor proof-reading, but it is otherwise just great.

Scott,
These stretches are a perfect warm up before practice; my hands feel so warm and vibrant and ready to go after these exercises. They are also a perfect (under the table) way of being productive at what really matters during long meetings at work. The videos are very clear. They are a great addition to the body of professional guitar knowledge you are making available.

Thanks,
Tom
