This is a beginner lesson for anyone who is interested in learning the great touch technique invented by Stanley Jordan in the 80's. This is a way of playing the guitar to a pianist by tapping the chords with the left hand and adding single notes, chords, or melodies with the right hand.

To get through these first exercises you should have played the guitar for at least 6 months. This level of facility will help you manage the left hand exercises. The right hand and the synchronization exercises are kept on a simple level so you won't get overstrained starting with this technique.

Please note that this technique takes some time until you have developed strength in both hands in order to get a clear tone and solvent movements of both hands. Therefore you might check my exercises at :
