Guitar technique has always been the main subject of discussions amongst guitar players. Thanks to technique, we are able to play anything we want. Our "guitar common sense" should guide us in not abusing it.

Technique gives "colours" to what we play. For example, a smooth legato, Holdsworth-style, is definitely in contrast with Gilbert's picking power. All this makes our way of playing more personal.

My aim is to provide a guitar player with a comprehensive "vocabulary" of all techniques. It is then up to each player to use it with feeling. This cannot be taught as it belongs to each individual's awareness.
