The “Tweezer Technique” for Fingerstyle Guitar


Hi Gang!

Wow, it’s been a helluva travel time here…I am now back in NYC after 9 weeks on the road in Germany, Austria Belgium and Holland – and Niagra Falls.

Many loyal fans took video at gigs.  When I saw this,  I thought I’d finally share this “secret” technique with you.

I call it the Tweezer Technique.

Normally I don’t show this kind of stuff casually, as it took years and years to develop.  But, I’ve decided it’s time to make this public – and spread the knowledge and joy to all players, and not keep this a secret any longer.

Enjoy!  The Tweezer Technique can be seen at about 3:04  – but it can only be appreciated if you watch from the beginning and see “musical context”  that it is in.

Feel free to use it in your own guitar playing.

Thanks again!  keep on picking….


P.S.  The Stevie Wonder Vol II Arrangements for Fingerstyle Guitar DVD will launch in about a month…so stay tuned! 🙂
