The biggest thing I got from the ‘Principles’ book was I actually enjoyed playing guitar - for 20 years I “enjoyed” playing, but wow, I had no idea how much TENSION I was holding in my arms, fingers, toes, stomach, etc....
I may have liked playing but my body was going through the pits of Hades to do the easiest things.
