Play with ease. Prevent injury. Enjoy the music!
“The gap between playing at home and in performance is always a great disappointment for me. I can work up a piece to reasonable fluency at home and then in performance (even with a small friendly audience) the difficult bits fall apart and completely new errors creep in.”
“I have opportunities to play in front of friends occasionally. Getting nervous is my biggest headache, most of the time I am frustrated after playing - frozen muscles, sweating hands...”
This is what many guitarists at any level experience: headaches, disappointment and frustration.
But guitar playing shouldn't be that way - it should be fun, effortless and enjoyable, right?
You might think nothing can combat nerves, frozen muscles and sweating hands, but I can assure you that there is a solution.
One of the most important solutions is to systematically practice the difficult aspects of guitar playing (like shifting & barring for example).
This is something that many books and videos on guitar playing don’t address in detail.
Once you start practicing these things on a daily basis, then your resilience to nerves will improve!
Your playing will no longer be hindered by technique, but will be on fire.
Your musical voice will shine out strong, inspiring and moving your audience to that special realm where music can take us.
Excerpts from the course....
One of the greatest fears a guitarist can have is the threat of injury.
- Injuries can be prevented by establishing a warm up routine of basic exercises that promote healthy habits, which result in efficient and controlled playing (even under tense circumstances).
- Practicing in this mindset before you play pieces is a crucial key for avoiding injuries. Many guitarists do not have such a routine of simple exercises and will often dive straight into difficult pieces or challenging exercises. (I know I did that for years...)
- The exercises in this course were mostly created by me. I have never suffered any injuries (even minor ones) throughout my entire career of almost 20 years. This is because I always prioritize warming up with simple exercises and encourage healthy habits to persist while practicing advanced pieces.
You might be amazed at how very simple exercises (like practicing open strings) can benefit when you play advanced pieces!
"Daniel Nistico’s online Warm-Up Course is exactly what I have been looking for!
The materials are creatively and thoughtfully designed. The accompanying online videos have helped me to incorporate technical and musical elements into a warm-up routine that have already made a difference in my playing.
Daniel is a gifted and generous teacher and I cannot imagine any guitarist at any level of development not benefiting from this outstanding course."

As a performer, I know how crucial it is to be fully warmed up before a concert or performance. My best performances were always preceded by amazing warm ups! And I also can remember a few instances where I didn't warm up...
One time I was performing a free lunchtime concert at Melba Hall. I hadn't properly warmed up that day for some reason, so right beforehand, I hastily tried to get my fingers moving backstage.
When I sat down on stage and proceeded to open with the Bach E Major Prelude- I immediately knew as I began that things weren't going to turn out well. And they didn't... From the get-go I was playing on wrong strings, having memory lapses that didn't normally happen! My left hand tired out very quickly, and I was left pretty disappointed in myself.
I don't want this to happen to you!
I want to share these exercises with you, so that you can give performances you're proud of - performances where your playing is on fire!
Ever since I developed this warm up routine, I have never had another concert experience quite like that (thankfully)!
This online course systematically guides you through the exact warm up exercises I've found to be most effective. I use these almost every day and have shared them with other students - these exercises will help you unlock the untapped potential of your technique and musicality.
The ultimate result is effortless music making, taking away the worry and interference of technique!
