One of the many common habits of guitar players is the tendency to play too many notes. To help aid in playing fewer, more meaningful notes; let's take a look at a unique exercise that involves actually holding your breath while you play. You will find that holding your breath between phrases is a great way to play more like a vocalist, as that is what they have to sing between. Let's jam together over a blues in Ab, taking turns soloing in between holding your breath. You will be amazed at how much clarity results from this exercise. Let's check it out!
