    Keep Your Eyes on the Hands
    BEG

    As you get better at reading hands, there's a world of really cool stuff you can learn from me and others. Don't doubt yourself. Trust me and give it a try. If you're having trouble with left and right, you're not alone. When you watch someone, instead of thinking of their left and right side, start thinking of their strumming side vs. their tuning side. This way, whether they're beside you or in front of you, the experience for you will more and more be the same.
